I respectfully disagree with this point. That is a common misconception.

On the creation side of things... Catholic Church doesn't believe in a literal creation story. They also have no problem with evolution.

I understand that a shifting foundation can jeopardize the integrity of the entire structure, but I just don't believe that those stories are foundational to my faith. My faith has much more to do with the miracles that I have witnessed in my life and in the lives of people I love than they have to do with a long line of people whose names are difficult to spell.

If it isn't too personal, what miracles?

I like Catholicism's ritural and history. As a life-long Lutheran there are too many points of deep theological disagreement for me to work through in this life time.

since that story is from God's perspective, isn't it possible that his experience of time is different? for instance, with time dilation or things similar, couldn't a day for a being like God ("who is light"), actually be many millions of years from our perspective? could God speak a word, and instantly something appears. yet, to distant observers, that instant was a long span of time?

My spirituality doesn't stem from my prayer life or improbable things I see in my own life that others have no problem calling miracles. Maybe that is my short coming owing to overvaluing rational thought and science. I need a God that comes to me outside of my day to day experiences. The church, sacraments and word of God have provided that for me for long stretches of my life, but the origin story always ends up undermining things, mainly due to the intertwined nature of original sin and origins of creation.

I doubt he is arguing that aspect. He is talking about the belief that it happened in 7 days literally. At least that is the way I understand his comments.

That's kind of the point. Catholicism believes it to be allegorical. If you don't believe that, then you believe it happened in 7 rotations of the Earth, literally.

Speaking from the POV of a believer, God meant his word to be for us so that pretty much throws out the idea that it would be from God's POV instead of ours.

Scholars whom I have read always leave little room for the interpretation of the Hebrew word for "day" in the creation accounts other than to mean a 24 hour day. In other words, if you look at the Hebrew word for "day" used in Genesis, it always means our day wherever it is used in other Hebrew texts from the time period. There are other Hebrew words for "day" that have looser interpretations, but those words aren't used in the creation accounts.

He also gets the Ten Commandments dead wrong. The Catholics didn't "drop one".. they combined the first few and split the last. It's all still in there. He acts as if they were numbered to begin with. There are 17 or 18 lines that are parsed down to 10 commandments... I guess because people thought 10 was cooler then 17. It's not, but whatever.
