Genesis 1, 1-31. In Genesis we read about the creation of the world in six days. The churches stuck tenaciously to this literal belief until, finally, in the 20th century science proved irrefutably that it took millions of years for the universe and the earth to come into existence.
It is noteworthy that Lorber wrote already during the middle of the 19th century that the notion the world had been created in six days (@ 24 hours) was "an illogical and stupid doctrine". [GGJ.02, 222,02].
Another passage reads: "The sages (scholars) will gradually be led to find that the earth is older than the short period of the Mosaic era, and "for a while Moses will be discredited because of this." [GGJ.02:215,14].
