What do you mean "absolutely no empirical evidence?" Time and time again science has proved the bible correct and accurate. And as for the thousand years - you obviously don't know the the bible's prophesies are not done yet, in Revelation after Armageddon, a thousand years later the beast is thrown into the "lake of fire". You could wait for the the end of prophesy before you accuse of "no empirical evidence". Of course, you wont be around then will you?

I highly disagree. It IS an historical account. In context, the creative days are unknown time periods. The time period from Adams creation can be calculated to our day to the year. As in this (2009) is the 6034th year since Adams creation.
      However, The part about "God gives the world to mankind to capitalize on", God does give it to man to use, "fill the earth and subdue it" as it were. Not meant to "capitalize" but make it a garden, a Paradise. The first account was the purpose for the author of the Bible, for man to live forever on earth. As to the author, look it up - 2 Timothy 3:16, and 2 Peter 1:20,21. If you dont believe that then read 2 Corinthians 4:4.

If you are trying to use the bible as a foundation for your joke, you forgot to calculate correctly. Using chronology from the bible the existence of "man" is a little over 6000 years. The bible use of "DAY" for creative process can mean thousands of years. Ezekiel 4:6 shows one translation of day as a year "A day for a year, a day for a year, is what I have given you". Even in our time we say things such as "back in my dads day". - That thought can represent 60-90 years or so.
