Our conversation today comes from Bret, who has some concerns about parallax, the speed of light, and has criticized me for believing that God created in six literal days. Bret seems to have been heavily influenced by the teachings of Hugh Ross, and asks how there could have been ordinary days before the sun was created. I enjoyed our dialogue, and hope that you will too!
Our first comment today comes from John, who is very angry at me because I believe the earth is round and have said so publicly. John refers to a podcast in which I was invited to participate as a guest.
