When there is little mass, nearby, time moves very slowly. And when I say slow, I mean 10 raised to the 12th times as slow as we experience today. Relativity can be used, according to eminent scholar and author, Gerald L. Schroeder, in to explain how time varies according to nearby mass. This makes the six days of creation in the Bible very plausible, when "the earth was without form and void". Gen 1:1 Therefore, when the Bible says six days, or 0.0164 year and you multiply that by 1,000,000,000,000, you get 16 billion years. Dr. Schroeder took 3 chapters of careful reasoning to convey this, so if you get the chance, read his books. This is my favorite part, but there are other really interesting points.
Relativistic Interpretation of the six days of Creation
Time is a relative commodity,
And moves lightning-quick or
In the presence or sparseness of mass
According to the Law of Relativity.
And the six days of creation
When the earth was not formed,
Can be stretched out to 16 billion years,
Since the Big Pow until now
When the math is applied
Discovered by Einstein
With his wonderful mind,
Given by God, after all.
