← Why I left Young-earth Creationism

Apparently the "Days of Proclamation" view is a piece of theological apologetics which sees the first chapters of Genesis as some kind of divine statement of intent, rather than a narration of the actual events that were supposed to have gone into creating the universe. I found an article on it here, by our good friend Glenn Morton:

Sounds just like the traditional theological mind-gymnastics that have been used to save face for thousands of years to me. He even mentions venerable old Clement of Alexandria. Sadly lacking in any kind of evidence-based reasoning unfortunately, but that's par for the course with this sort of thing. My suspicions are confirmed.

Why am I not at all surprised?
