Raef Fanous wrote:See, there was no Earth in the first 4 days (first 9 bln years out of 13.5 bln years)....Earth has been in existence for 2 days out of 6 (4.5 bln years out of 13.5 bln years).
by = billion years
Quran 41:9 - Earth created in 2 days
13.7by * 2/6 = 4.56....by so approximately the correct amount.
So let's look at the verse in context...
09: Say thou: are ye indeed those who disbelieve in Him who hath created the earth in two days, and set up Unto Him peers? That is the Lord of the worlds.
10: And He placed therein mountains firmly rooted rising above it, and blessed it, and ordained therein the sustenance thereof, all this in four days: comglete: this for the inquirers.
11: Thereafter turned He to the heaven and it was as smoke, and said Unto it and Unto the earth: come ye twain, willingly or loth. They said: we come willingly.
12: Then He decreed them as seven heavens in two days, and revealed Unto each heaven the command thereof; and We bedecked the nether heaven with lamps and placed therein a guard. That is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knower.
So what does the Quran say?
1: The Earth was created in 2 days (4.5by) - Accurate
2: God placed mountains in the Earth and blessed it in 4 days (9by) - That's longer than the Earth has existed!
3: The rest of the universe was still merely dust AFTER the Earth was created - that's wrong. Stars existed for billions of years before the Earth.
4: Next he made stars - again that's wrong because stars formed before planets - especially the Earth.
So my conclusions are
1: The chronology of the Quran is utterly wrong.
2: Your hypothesis that 1 "day" is 2.28by is wrong according to verse 41:10 in the Quran.
