Seems Clear to Me (a day is a day, and a word is a word)!

In reading God's Word (the Scripture, the Bible), it is clear what is to be taken as historical and literal, or figurative; such as creation.

As you read Genesis 1-3, there does not seem to be even a hint of figurative language, or God using "evolution" to accomplish His purposes; for He "spoke", and it was done and in a certain time period, "six days."

It is interesting to read the confirmation of creation in certain number of days throughout Scripture, such as in Deuteronomy 4:32, "...the DAY that God created man on the earth..."

And how did God create? By the simple miracle of the spoken "word." Psalm 33:6 and 9, "By the WORD of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the BREATH of His mouth all their hosts...For He SPOKE and and it was done; He COMMANDED, and it stood fast."

In your faith, is it too hard to believe in the almighty power and miracle working God to create instantly and by a simple word?

Does the Bible mean what it says, and does it say what it means?
