Practice Creation?

As noted in Kate Atkinson's "Human Croquet" - "In 1650, Archbishop James Ussher, in his Annals of the World, calculates that God made Heaven and Earth on the evening of Saturday, October 22, 4004 BC."

How might the world
be different
if created on
a Monday morning?
Did God intend
to create the world
earlier in the day
but got busy
with other
God chores?
What if he
had forgotten
to create us?
Was creation of
Heaven and Earth
a pesky task
to be crossed off
the list?
Did God really rest
the next day?
What if God was interrupted
mid-way thru creation?
What if we were only
intended to be the
practice creation?

  1. It is interesting to consider your questions, and it really puts me in my place in terms of my importance as one little human amidst so much creation. But yet, it makes me appreciate that I am part of that creation, whatever day it happened on and whatever frame of mind the Creator may have been in. It is all pretty amazing to ponder. Thanks!
