If it's so clear, please explain to those of us who are ignorant
in such matters what "day" means in the original Hebrew and in
the other references to that word in the Bible. Some scholars
say that some terms in the Bible are symbolic or metaphors, so
explain why this incorrect, since it should be clear.
