Thank you for answering the question. I had to reread your post, at first I thought you were accusing me of arguing just to be arguing, but once I reread it I understood you were recapping the other topic.
Your interpretation of Genesis makes sense and, while I am not quite ready to look at it exactly as you, I do see the thought behind your belief in Lunar days.
I quoted you above, a quote I really thought to be the best part of your post. we should be willing to occasionally agree to disagree. Too often people get caught up in the 'thats not what I believe' mentality and cannot open themselves up to (at least) listen to others. My biggest issue personally is that I have a problem telling someone else that their belief is wrong. I've never though of it as being my place to critisize someone for their religious beliefs just because they are not the same as my own. That is the only downfall of 'debating' this topic. It is so much worse than politics because you usually are not successful in swaying folks to believe as you do, so the debate quickly becomes an argument because no one is listening to anyone else. But, as I have heard many times before, there is victory in just one person won. So I guess I have to take my hat off to the people that can go out there and stick to their convictions, whatever they might be ;o)
