According to the Analogical Day , the 6 Creation “Days” referenced in Genesis 1 refer to God’s creative work days which are analogous to (but not necessarily identical to) the work days of man. This was done to set a pattern for man’s work and rest cycle in which man was to work 6 work days and then rest on the 7th day. Most Analogical Day creationists propose the “days” in Genesis 1 are “broadly consecutive” in that the “days” are successive periods of an unspecified length; however, parts of the creation “days” may overlap and/or the works within the creation days may be grouped in a topical fashion.
