One complete revolution of the eather (heaven) equals one Biblical creation day, however long it takes. A day couldn’t be based on the greater light and the lesser light and the stars, because they did not exist until the fourth day of creation.
The Biblical definition of day was established in the beginning, starting cold and dark (evening) and ending with the creation of a special form of light being separated from darkness (morning). Additionally, the words "sun" and "moon" are not used until after Noah's flood. The greater light and the lesser light of day 4 may not have been the sun and moon we see today.
I suspect a day has always been approximately 24 hours because plant life, fish, and fowl were made on day 3. They could not survive an aeon waiting for natural light to appear on day 4.
So now I find myself with a strange feeling. I now feel a little hollow without my evolutionist base of thought.
