received as convenient rather than probable, in the year 4004 before Christ. In six days God created light and
darkness, day and night, the firmament and the continents in the midst of the waters, fruits, grain, and herbs,

"over the fish of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and cattle, and all the earth, and every creeping thing that
creepeth upon the earth.
