In the case of Scripture, especially the creation account in Genesis, God has revealed himself and has inspired the Scripture writers to accurately record what He has revealed. This means any interpretation must be based on drawing the true meaning out of the text (exegesis) and not what we want it to mean. Therefore, when applying the principles of hermeneutics, the rules of interpretation, the text is independent of the reader and is unaffected by changing circumstances, opinions, or any new revealed scientific knowledge. It now becomes clear that once we avoid inserting our personal opinions and human wisdom, God created everything in six literal days.
