I do not consider the universe or the Earth mass to be 6000 years old.

This is a copy of my post"Are you dating the universe or the Earth?"
Which explains why the universe is not dated in the Torah as you have suggested.

"The Torah only dates the earth back to Earths first day which would be a few thousand years ago assuming a literal translation.
Before the Earths first day the Earth exists already as a void planet. Gen 1:2
How long was the Earth there before the first day?
A day?
A year?
A trillion years?
This information is not given.

The Torah does not date the universe.
The Torah only dates the time back to the day God gave the earth a surface remodel."

Your argument will of course will jump to verse 14 with the creation of the stars. I believe I have a interesting understanding for this text also. Unfortunately we decided to terminate our discussion at verse 2.

I will stop here as I do not intend to violate your “agree to disagree” request. I have found God to be a gentleman who never forces His way in and I attempt to mimic Him whenever possible.

The common evolution model does not require us to be dependent on God for anything. Is that why you consider it positive?
I mean that we would eventually become Gods our self through evolution without Gods help.
