To answewr the OPs question, yes, we are on the 7th day. Actually, the 7th day could have started. 6000 years ago because if you think about it the whole 6000 vs 2 billlion year old Earth debate is so elementary. Most people approach this like a snot nose 8 year with a basic linear math education that has never been exposed to exponents and logs. Quite simply, the first day of creation was actually over a billion Earth years. The second day, several hundred million years. The third day a few million years and the 4th, several hundred thousand years. Each day much shorter than the previous, slowly tapering off. No linearity here whatsoever. It all has to do with the point of reference. f you travel through space at the speed of light and return to Earth one year later, all your loved will have been dead because many Earth years would have passed. Think about it.

one of my collage biology professors (who was a devote Methodist) told me she had read that (like stated above) the usage of the term day in genesis meant a capsule of time, not an actual day. I do not remember her exact argument, but she showed how our understanding of the big bang, the various stages of the universes creation, and the evolution of species, could all be aligned with the “days” mentioned in the bible.
