Match the theory to the short definition:
Revelatory-Day View The Alternate-Day-Age View Gap Theories The Ideal-Time View
The Literary-Framework View
The “days” and “evenings and mornings” are merely ancient literary devices to frame certain periods of time, used like a chapter to divide a block of information in a book. Genesis records a second creation, with a first creation hinted at in verse 1 followed by a large gap of time before the contemporary creation account begins in verse 2

The days and weeks represent the time it took God to reveal the story of creation to Adam or Moses Each day in Genesis is a 24 hour day, but there were long periods between the days.
The earth and all living things were created with the appearance of age. The trees, for example, created with rings.

Match the view on origins to the short definition.
Naturalistic Evolution Naturalistic Creation Theistic Evolution Theistic Creation Absolute Pantheism
Creation is an illusion, we exist only in the imagination of God.

There is a theistic Creator beyond the world who created it, but that from that point on all living things emerged under His control only by largely natural processes.

There is no God involved in creation, it all occurs naturalistically.
There is no theistic Creator beyond the world—only a creative Mind within the universe that creates.

God directly created the universe, living things, and human beings.
