I suppose that if you had a time machine you could go back to the beginning of the universe and see if it happens in 6 days. But where would you park?

In the parking lots numbered 13 and 7.

Why those?

Because 6 = 13 - 7



Ah, come on. Don't you really understand the meaning behind the "six days?"

The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model that describes the early development of the Universe, which in physical cosmology is believed to have occurred about 13.7 billion years ago.

So in the bible ''six days'' means ''13.7 billion years''? And that book is suppose to be true? That is hilarious.

Welcome to Catholic "interpretation" of the Buybull, with some idiotic numerology mixed in for good measure.
