“The days of creation were creative days, stages in the process, but not days of twenty-four hours.”
“Days of God are intended, with Him a thousand years are but as a day when that is past, Ps. 90:4 . . . The days of creation are, according to the meaning of Holy Scripture itself, not days of four and twenty hours, but aeons . . . For this earthly and human measurement of time cannot apply to the first three days.”

A fundamentalist Christian my husband works with- literally believes that God put the dinosaur bones on earth on purpose so that we'd test our faith. Not that the dinosaur existed- but that the bones magically appeared to confuse us.

Trouble is that they are dinosaur fossils, not dinosaur bones. The difference being one is made of minerals that occupy the space that used to be bone and the latter is just bone.
Bone doesn't get replaced by minerals in 6000 years. ...
(Job 41:1-8) 41 “Can you draw out Le·vi′a·than with a fishhook, Or with a rope can you hold down its tongue? 2 Can you put a rush in its nostrils, Or with a thorn can you bore its jaws? 3 Will it make many entreaties to you, Or will it say soft words to you? 4 Will it conclude a covenant with you, That you may take it as a slave to time indefinite? 5 Will you play with it as with a bird, Or will you tie it for your young girls? 6 Will partners barter for it? Will they divide it up among tradesmen? 7 Will you fill its skin with harpoons, Or its head with fish spears? 8 Put your hand upon it. Remember the battle. Do not do it again.
