2.2 Old Earth Creationism - The Day/Age Theory
The creation days in Genesis describe creative periods of time, not six literal days. During each creative period, God increased the complexity of life by creating new life forms while also changing the earth to accommodate these new forms. There are variations on the Day/Age theory, and they differ according to how much the appearance of new organisms in the fossil record is attributed to God's direct intervention, or due to the process of God-directed evolution. Some proponents of the Day/Age Theory believe that we are currently in the seventh day (Davis A Young, G. Schroeder). Progressive creationism (Hugh Ross) is based on the Day/Age Theory.
