Ninth, no human being was present at the time — to witness the length or the shortness of those days. As God later said to Job: “Where were you when I laid own the foundations of the Earth? Declare, if you have understanding!” Job 38:4.
Tenth, neither Job nor we have that understanding! God’s book of Scripture is silent as to how long or how short those days of Earth’s formation week were. Therefore we too should be silent. Nor can we accurately date God’s book of the rocks — not even by sedimentary, palaeontological, or radioactive dating methods — unless we hypothetically presuppose the unproven postulate of uniformitarianism (about which later) in all three cases.28
