[geocentrism] Re: Three days and three nights

I have been noting the give and take, the too ing and fro ing , over this 
calandar business as it relates to scripture, and indeed as Neville said also 
thus relates to geocentrism, though I do not quite see how. 
What seems to come out of all this discussion , and I include all of our 
debates here, is that none can be absolutely sure of any scientific accuracy 
from scripture, which does not open up even more confusion. eg 72 hours or not 
72 hours. 

We seem to be confirming that Scripture alone, is insufficient to convey the 
will of God, but that we need someone with Divine Authority to explain it to 
us. As it appears so far here, we are very much like the blind leading the 
blind. Mat 15-14.

We seek our authority from the skills of men. I am referring to language and 
scientific interpretive and knowledge skills. 

Yet does not scripture itself tell us just how dangerous such are. 

25  For the foolishness of God is wiser than men: and the weakness of God is 

stronger than men. 

  26  For see your vocation, brethren, that there are not many wise according 
to 

the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble. 

  27  But the foolish things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound 

the wise: and the weak things of the world hath God chosen, that he may 

confound the strong. 

  28  And the base things of the world and the things that are contemptible, 
hath 

God chosen: and things that are not, that he might bring to nought things that 
are: 



Then we have also 2Peter 3-

  15  And account the longsuffering of our Lord, salvation: as also our most 
dear 

brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, hath written to you: 

  16  As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which 
are 

certain things hard to be understood, which the unlearned and unstable wrest, 
as 

they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. 

  17  You therefore, brethren, knowing these things before, take heed, lest 
being 

led aside by the error of the unwise, you fall from your own steadfastness. 

  18  But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus 
Christ. 

To him be glory both now and unto the day of eternity, Amen. 



I guess that last verse 18 puts the really important perspective on our 
subject, and its relative import.

  Carl,
   
  You say (in your overview) that the day of the New Moon is "a period of time, 
one or two days." What Scriptural justification is there for this being two 
days?
