Following this line of thought, why couldn't the 7 days have been 700,000 years or even 7 million years. Wouldn't that make both creationism and evolution valid?
Please correct me if I am way off base but this has just been something lingering in my thoughts for a long time.

The bible is supposed to be the word of god, an infallible and perfect being.
If god meant something other than days, he would have said so. He said days.
Therefore, if one is taking the bible as anything more than a series of allegorical tales and myths, then one would have to take the bible at its word, and the world was created in seven actual days.
Which means that either god was lying, or god is not perfect. Or, the thing that Occam's Razor leaves us with after exploring all of the preceding: there is no god, not one like in the bible.
Take your pic. I choose C. but without the qualifier -- my choice reads "there is no god."
God created the earth in seven days? Here is my thought on the subject(it's been awhile since I have read the bible) but I remember something to the effect of 'for God, a day is like 1000 years and 1000 years is like a day'.
So why piss about with Earth for 5 days creating trees and what not but take 1 day to create the rest of the universe (all the stars and probably planets and the galaxies that we can and can't see - billions and billions of them). Seems a bit odd don't you think? If it took 1 day to create the earth then you would think it would take 1 day to create each and every planet.

I do believe it was a literal 6 days though, in which he created night and day, dry land, and life.
