The Beginning According to Genesis and Science What did the writer of Genesis mean by “the first day”? Is it a literal week or a series of time periods?

Get Over Yourself both uses Nietzsche's philosophy to understand our society, and takes our society to explain his philosophy. Buy Get Over Yourself
