Genesis 5:18
18 When Jared had lived 162 years, he became the father of Enoch.


It seems there are as many Enochs as stars in the sky.


From the line of Seth.

Yes, Seth, brother of Cain and Abel, son of Adam and Eve.

Not to be confused with Enoch, son of Cain.

It's interesting that another translation for the word "day" is also eon.

And there are many examples of a day being more than 24 hours in the bible.

2 Peter 3:8
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.


Most time periods in the bible are not as we understand them. For instance the "70 weeks" is not really 70 weeks, but groupings of weeks with time in between.



There are multiple books trying to explain the concept of time in the bible, to name a few:

  • Biblical Words for Time, Barr James, Series 1, Vol. 33. London: SCM Press, 1962. Buswell, Oliver J., Jr.,
  • The length of the creative days; in: Davis Bible Dictionary, Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan Publishing House, 1982. Coppes, Leonard J.,
  • Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament Vol. 1. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Eerdmans Publishing, 1935 DeVries, Simon,
  • Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow: Time and History in the Old Testament
    Grand Rapids, Michigan: Eerdmans Publishing, 1975. Ridpath, Ian (ed.),

Each one contradicts the other. Only a fool would be confident in his opinion after seeing so many intelligent people argue about it for years. It shows that interpretation is just that - someones opinion of what something means. The only way to know for sure would be if god written 'And by that I meant...'

Maybe if god wanted you to delve into the topic, he should have used more than a couple of extremely vague sentences when describing something so inconceivably complex as world creation.

The only way to verify the actual time it took the world to form is by science, but if you don't trust science, the only thing that's left is to argue about opinions with other people for another hundreds of years.

Adam and Eve were created after the seventh day. After God rested on the 7th day. It was Lord God who created Adam from the dust on the ground. And Eve from Adams ribb in the garden east of Eden a bit later......

God created man as male and female on the 6th day. Before he rested on the 7th day.

God did not name any of the male or females he created. Nor is it mentioned that Man gave eachoter names when they were created. Names were only given in the garden of Eden, under Lord God the Serphent.

Within religion or our recorded history it is like the Man (male and female) God created never existed. They were never as important as Lord Gods creation: Adam and Eve.

Or it means exactly what the bible explains in numerous places...

That our concept of time is not the same as God's concept of time...

That's incorrect.

First, genesis 2:5-7 explains that plants had not sprung forth on the earth yet when Adam and Eve were created.

Which means God could not have created Adam and Eve after the 7th day. Because he created plants on the third day.

Second, look at genesis 5. It follows the same pattern as genesis 2.

There is the "creation" story of Cain, Abel, and Seth in genesis 4, then tells the story of Adam's genealogy in genesis 5.

Genesis 1 tells the creation story of the world, then tells the story of the genealogy of "the world" in Genesis 2.

It's very clearly saying "here's some backstory for what you just read."

Genesis 2:4
This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

Genesis 5:1
This is the written account of Adam’s family line.

Sadly you left out the ORIGINALY story Abraham and Sarah brought with them from Syria when they believed the ancient Sumerian beliefs which is left out of the horribly fabled "Bible". Adom (as his name first was) had a first wife which is why God (aka Enlil and Enki) created humans at the same time - from the Earth, their own breath and they way they created all other creatures. Lilith (the first woman) didn't care for Adom's attitude problem and left. The second time, Eve is made from Adom's rib - so clearly women are created TWICE. And sadly they weren't the only people. When Cain was banished he obviously joined other humans to make the Cainaanites but that's not too popular for people's paradigms while it must be a fact since he created an entire civilization but up until then - according the "Good Book" (I used the term with sarcasm) it would be impossible since there were no other people having been created. Obviously it has holes in it from being rewritten over a few thousand years until the Christians decided to do a complete overhaul. But that's another story. a reply to: rounda
