The Genesis Code
This was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. It has it all. The move has a sequence that last 22 minutes that goes through the entire physics behind Genesis and time dilation by God's perspective. The example used with the movie is of the narrowing of time within a singularity or curved gravitational space. By God's perspective, 6 days is not what our time dictates by perspective and frame of reference. When the 6 days are paired with what science says happens on each of these epics of time by our perspective, they match. The trailer gives an overview, but the movie sequence needs to be seen. Not only this, but the movie is a commentary on the bias of the cult of reason in relation to faith and evident truth. It has a love story and a twist at the end that makes it an amazing movie to share with your children. Our family loved it.

Six days is to mean six periods of time, that's the belief in Islam.
The Quran states that "Allah created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in six days" (7:54). While on the surface this might seem similar to the account related in the Bible, there are some important distinctions.
The verses that mention "six days" use the Arabic word "youm" (day). This word appears several other times in the Quran, each denoting a different measurement of time. In one case, the measure of a day is equated with 50,000 years (70:4), whereas another verse states that "a day in the sight of your Lord is like 1,000 years of your reckoning" (22:47). The word "youm" is thus understood, within the Qur'an, to be a long period of time -- an era or eon. Therefore, Muslims interpret the description of a "six day" creation as six distinct periods or eons. The length of these periods is not precisely defined, nor are the specific developments that took place during each period.
After completing the Creation, the Quran describes that Allah "settled Himself upon the Throne" (57:4) to oversee His work. A distinct point is made to counter the Biblical idea of a day of rest: "We created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us" (50:38).

i like the idea, but there are some errors on both the "science" and "religion" sides i could see from the trailer.
Time dilation - for it to apply to god, god would need to be in motion with the frame of reference of something.
before the big bang there is no frame of reference, but after it you could say he is moving faster than lightspeed. afterall he is everywhere at once. you would also have to assume that god is affected by timespace and could have gravity pull on him. but the laws of physics do not affect him, so everyday of creation would have to be the same amount of time. 1 day for god would have to be 2.25 billion years (13.5billion years /6 days). and that just throws the timeline in the movie trailer off the deep end.
man and adam - i am going to say man is a very smart ape with a brain that evolved, and adam is gods creation. Man first appears 250 thousand years ago, adam created 6000 years ago. 250 million years ago, there is no man, no adam. Every animal on earth today, did not suddenly appear on earth at the cambrian era, they evolved from it. and the species from the cambrian era evolved from the species before that. contrary to what is said in the trailer. again it just throws a monkey wrench into that timeline.
If the account of genesis from the bible is to be placed side by side with real evidence proven science, you should not have to bend the word of god to match the real timeline of the universe.

TextTo see this clearly, let’s put the information into context with the entire story of the Bible: -Adam to Abraham 2000 Years of Age 1 (FATHER) -Abraham to Jesus 2000 Years of Age 2 (SON) -Jesus to Today 2000 Years of Age 3 (HOLY SPIRIT) -Day of Rest (Day of the Lord) 1000 years (SALVATION)
The Genesis creation narrative is the creation myth of both Judaism and Christianity. It is made up of two parts, roughly equivalent to the two first chapters of the Book of Genesis. In Genesis 1:1 through Genesis 2:3, God (Hebrew אֱלֹהִ֔ים Elohim) creates the world in six days, then rests on, blesses and sanctifies the seventh day. God creates by spoken command ("Let there be..."), suggesting a comparison with a king, who has only to speak for things to happen; each command is followed by name-giving ("And he called..."). The characteristic Hebrew verb used to describe God's creative act in this chapter is ברא, bara, which throughout the bible is used only with God as its subject – that is, only God can bara.
In Genesis 2:4–24 Yahweh, the personal name of God, forms the first man from dust, places him in the Garden of Eden, and creates the first woman, Eve, from the man's body. The word used when God forms the first man is יצר, yatsar, meaning "fashioned", a verb used in contexts such as a potter forming a pot from clay. God breathes his own breath into the man and he becomes נֶפֶש nephesh, a living being. Man shares nephesh with all creatures, but only of man is this life-giving act of God described.
