In every book I've read about the translation of the first few words of Genesis from the Hebrew, the consistent idea appears to be that God began a process that continued, not began a process and then stopped at the end of six days. Somehow I find the continuing process translation to be comforting.


off topic, but I just wanted to point you back to the Jesus, John, and the Reliability of Scripture discussion for my latest update.

The Scriptures are emphatically clear in respect of the proposition [see above] that Creation is an ongoing process.

The Genesis Creation record states that GOD the Creator made the world [universe] in six [6] solar days, after which, on the seventh day, His creation work having now been fully accomplished, He, GOD the Creator, " ... rested from all of His work which He had made" [Genesis 2:2]. See also Exodus 20:11 and Exodus 31:17. Thus, the Creation is a finished work.
