Did some formal study at a Bible school in the US about 8 years ago. Find enjoyment from reading books like the Moody Handbook of Theology. Raised Catholic until 14. Followed the typical non-denominational dogma until about 23. Now I pick what I like from the various opinions on topics rather than the whole.

Welcome to the site. We are glad you decided to participate. This question is perhaps a little to primarily opinion based, meaning there are a lot of opinions within Christianity about this. See the question types that the community finds acceptable. If possible, edit this question so that it better fits into one of those question types.

@brasshat I'm pretty sure Christianity in general views Exodus as Scripture, therefore, this question posted here is seeking a Christian perspective answer, compared to a Jewish one, for example.

comment What is the specific meaning of “day” in Genesis 1?
The evening/morning designation is based off how ancient peoples viewed a day. The day started with the evening, continued through the morning and lasted until the start of the next evening. The phrase is not exclusive of the daylight portion of a day; it is inclusive of an entire day.

I'll give you upvote in advance. I'm certainly interested in reading more about there being more righteous women than men.

comment Why, according to the Catholic Church, did the Reformation happen?
Great question. You'd think they should have something to say about it, other than calling it heresy. It's not just a short lived movement. We are about 500 years in and the Protestants are still going strong. The Catholic should ask "Why would God allow this?"
