Um... Fiddling around with some figures to make a sum is what bankers do? My question is whether you are accounting for leap years?

Why does god need a time scale?
How does god counts one day? We know a day is simply 24hrs or the time it takes the earth to make a full revolution on its axis relative the sun. How does god counts a day then?

Good god non, haven't you got it? He's actually saying, by his calculations, that god will appear any time now.
Now a serious question for Utna. Before god there was nothing, correct? Now if there was nothing then there wasn't an Earth, Sun or anything to define what a day or even a year was. As we know a year is the time the Earth blah, blah, blah. But what about a better definition of a year than using a galactic measurement, A light year?
Trying to reconcile any religious text with actual happenings you're onto a loser.
Another question, according to the bible, how do you reconcile the number of years that Methuselah lived. 696 years? How through your numerical conjuring do you explain that?
According to the Old Norse: Before «The Beginning» (Bereschit -- Genesis) there was nothing. No dirt no nothing. A single straw of grass guarded, growing in the turds of the first gods. Geologically speaking we still have a few days left before the real Slim Shady shows up, Crazy.
