Node Text: Confirmation bias is present with creation theology

The previous statement is guilty of classical confirmation bias. The author used the most convenient of the ancient hebrew word for day to fit his argument. However, if you look at the context objectively, describing a "day" within a 7-day week most clearly fits that of a 24-hour day and not some period between two events. The vast majority of religious history believed that it was a 7-day period like we experienced. It was only after science discovered evidence as to the origins of the universe that people like the previous author had to alter their definitions of words like "day" to quell their cognitive dissonance.
