 Six Days Campaign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Six Days Campaign was a critical series of battles in Napoleon's final defence of France in 1814 as the Allies advanced on Paris.
The Six Days Campaign was fought from 10 to 14 February during which time he inflicted four major defeats on Blücher's army at Battle of Champaubert, Battle of Montmirail, Battle of Château-Thierry, and Battle of Vauchamps.
Napoleon managed to inflict 20,000 casualties on Blücher's force of 100,000 with his 30,000-man army leading many to claim that the Six Days was the Emperor's finest campaign.

 In the Space of Six Days
As Berkhof declares in defending a six day creation: In its primary meaning the word yom denotes a natural day; and it is a good rule in exegesis, not to depart from the primary meaning of a word, unless this is required by the context" (Systematic Theology, 154).
On Day 1 God declares "good" the newly created light, but not his separating it from darkness to form "evening and morning." This is because the final, providential mechanism for separating (the sun) is not created until Day 4.
Day 3 must predate Day 6, in that land must precede land animals and man. Day 6 must appear as the last stage of creation, in that man forms the obvious climax to God's creation.

 The Six Days of Creation (This Rock: January 2003)
According to this view the days of Genesis 1 are six, 24-hour days that occur within the space of a week (completed by a literal seventh day of divine rest).
This view holds that the six days of creation are not intended to convey anything in particular about the time or sequence in which God created things.
The creation of the sun on the fourth day is suggestive - as it would have been to the ancient audience - that the succession of days is not intended to be taken as a strict, chronological account and that something else is at work as an ordering principle in the text.

 Did God really take six days?
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.
Genesis 2:4 states ‘In the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.’  As this refers to all six days of creation, it shows that the word day does not mean an ordinary day.

 Six "Days" for Mankind
"...for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed." When we see a "for" or a "therefore", we consider the passage and what it's there for.
The 40 days and nights of rain, the 40 days fast, the 40 years in the wilderness and 40 days on the mountain top, all serve to boggle the mind, yet impress upon us how the Author uses this number to express various durations of time.
The allegory of circumcision on the 8th day, (the number 8 being symbolic of a new beginning, like new week) indicates that would be when the "flesh is cut off", i.e.

During those six days we were at San Francisco Zen Center, with most of the family and a few close friends sharing in the nursing and the Zen community providing practical help and a context of coherent tranquillity.
Within the rhythm of our day, one of a small group was always with him: Lois, or Kathleen, a friend and nurse who had come with the family from Esalen, or I, or John and Eric, or Robert, the Zen priest who manages the guest house.

 The necessity for believing in six literal days
Besides, the word 'day' already exists and has been defined, which is why in 2 Peter it can be compared to a thousand years.
If he lived through day six and day seven, and then died when he was 930 years old, and if each of these days was a thousand or a million years, you have major problems!
On the fourth day of creation (Genesis 1:14-19), we are given the comparison of day to night, and days to years.

 Six Day Creation, 02/23/98
In these comments, Calvin argues that the six days of creation are not merely a literary device designed only to instruct about an event which actually occurred in an instant; the six days refer to a literal space of time, a chronological interval.
According to this view, the six days of creation are not a chronological sequence but a literary framework to describe an event that occurred instantly, in the twinkling of an eye.
One argument for the day age theory is based on a comparison of day six in Genesis chapter one and the creation of Adam and Eve in Genesis chapter two.

 Contradictions in the Qur'an: Six or eight days of creation?
Two days for the creation of the earth, then four days to fill the earth with mountains, blessings and nourishment for all its inhabitants, and in the end two more days to create the seven heavens and create the stars in them.
But it just doesn't look like the first two days are part of the four day period since the second period presupposes the existence of the earth which is now to be filled after it had been created.
The two days of the creation of earth are not separable from the two days in which this universe as a whole was created.

Further, Six Days of War is an attack on "post-Zionism": the school of politics and history that casts Israel as the author of policies that intentionally promote the destuction of Palestine as a separate entity and of Palestinians as a people, not least through the occupation that began with the 1967 War.
Six Days of War is exceptional because it focuses less on detailed military engagements and almost entirely on the diplomatic/strategic maneuvering.
Six Days of War is history at its finest and should be read by anyone interested in the modern Middle East.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Hexaemeron
Hence the suspicion arises that the division of God's creative acts into six days is really a schematism employed to inculcate the importance and the sanctity of the seventh day.
The real length of time covered by the six visional days is not determined by Scripture; even the sequence of certain details may be different in nature from that in the vision, so that this theory does not interfere with the data of geology, while it safeguards the veracity of the inspired record.
It is not surprising, therefore, that the so-called Concordists have found these six long periods in the six days of the Hexaemeron, and have endeavoured to establish an identity between the product of each period and the work described in each day of Gen., i.

 The Six Days of Creation
The word "day" can also be used to describe a 12 hour period of time: "The sky was clear and the sun was shining all day!" Most of the time, however, we use the word "day" to describe a 24 hour period (scientifically defined as the time that the earth spins once on its axis).
If the days of creation were ages, then the WORK DAYS for the children of Israel must also be ages (if we are to be consistent).
The only reason some people think they need to make the six days of creation long periods of time (ages) is because they feel they need to give the "god" of the evolutionists enough time to do his work.

Peter Robinson: On the eve of the Six Day War, Secretary of State Dean Rusk writes a note in which he concludes that "the Holy War psychology" of the Arab world had collided with the "apocalyptic psychology" of an Israel afraid for its survival.
And the Israeli government would--there were huge debates that went on for days and days and days about whether we should strike first or absorb the first strike, whether we can absorb the first strike.

Six Days in Roswell was filmed in 1997 during the 50th anniversary celebration of the alleged flying saucer crash near the town of Roswell, New Mexico.
Those who grumble about the filmmakers' "betrayal" of the documentary format through their fictionalized central character are the same people who kibitzed at Titanic's historical inaccuracies.
Sometimes such elements need to be jettisoned for the sake of entertainment, and Six Days in Roswell is highly entertaining.

But the duration was shorter on 2 of the 3 fronts: on the Egyptian side only 4 days, and on the Jordanian side only 3 days.
It was only on the Syrian side that the war lasted the whole 6 days.
The war could have lasted longer than it did, and the result could have been different and less humiliating for the Arabs, as their the power of their armies was far from depleted.

Six Days, Seven Nights: (Randy Edelman) Most people will be familiar with Randy Edelman's themes for NBC Sports or the Dragonheart theme that is used frequently in recent trailers such as Seven Years in Tibet and Mulan.

Six Days, Seven Nights has romance, adventure, and authenticity, but yet it doesn't stand out as an interesting score.

By the end of the first day, nearly the entire Egyptian and Jordanian air forces, and half the Syrians’, had been destroyed on the ground.
It was not until the Jordanians and Egyptians were subdued that reinforcements could be sent to the Golan Heights, where Syrian gunners commanding the strategic high ground made it exceedingly difficult and costly for Israeli forces to penetrate.
After just six days of fighting, Israeli forces were in a position to march on Cairo, Damascus, and Amman.

 Jonathan D. Sarfati, physical chemistry
On it you shall not do any work … For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.
However, if six days should really be interpreted to mean 15 billion years, then any attempt to understand Scripture is hopeless.
As man was made six days after creation, a true time line of the world would indeed have man right at the beginning, which the Bible indicates was about 6,000 years ago.

 GPTS - Resources: Creation Statement
Indeed, we find the OT creation texts to be interpreted as normal days, and no passage demands that Genesis 1-2 be re-engineered to yield other interpretations.
With 60-80 divines normally attending sessions, at least 20 of the divines who did comment in other published writings indicate that they only understood the creation days to be 24-hour days (or ordinary days), and none have been found who espoused a contrary view.
We believe that this was a strategic and hermeneutical mistake, as well as a departure from the meaning of terms in the Westminster Standards.

 Six Days? - Honestly! - ChristianAnswers.Net
After all, many good, solid evangelicals and Bible teachers accept that the days are, or at least could be, symbolic.
To put it simply, there were Genesis "days" before man appeared and if you read the days as "ages" (remember that these "ages" are said to be shown by layers containing dead things called fossils) you've just put death and bloodshed before Adam!
If the reader is by now feeling despair, the answer to the dilemma is to look again at the modern world view you may have been trying to harmonize with Scripture.
