No Earth..No Spin ..No Day..No week.. In fact in Bible there are just 7 periods of time not seven days. Whats your opinion?

Okay this is going to offend people!!!! CAUTION Evelution created man Man created time Seconds, minutes, days.. all of it was created by man To say that days are a period of time is only true because man created it. So it turn, time only exists so long as human life exists. In my opinion, time is nothing. Yes, we need time to know when to go to work but then again, work was created by man. Everything that does not occur in nature is created by man therefore can not exist with out such. It is reality, which the concept was created by man. If man was to choice a different word or idea about something before introducing it into society we would call it something else. It would be something different entirely. Time is nothing, and yet we make it everything. All because of man and evelution

I think time is a term or it is rather be called as a component that is used to separate two events occurin in sequence.Certainly the word is created by man but it sure has some significant meanin behind it.Take it that way - God never came and ask us to call him 'God' but we still call him by that name...I think you someday come up with an idea that'God is nothin' but man's own creation

How's that offensive? You're just stating obvious. It's not time that's passing, we are.

There is nothing in nature to suggest the reason for a seven day week. Perhaps it originally came from dividing the lunar month into four, which comes out at approximately seven days. It seems to work well for everyone! I don't think that creation necessarily took place in seven twenty-four hour periods, but doesn't the Bible later talk about the seventh day being the Sabbath?

I just mentioned this discussion to friends, and someone said that there is a theory that there are seven days because there were seven visible planets in the sky to early man. Men based their time on astronomy, so it makes sense!

I think they turned the periods into 24 hours and made it 7 days. So 1 day would be a 24 period. But, what kind of avatar have you got there, is that you? Take care, have a nice day.
