Theory
There is no time limit to “the fifth day” in Genesis 1: 23. Time span is irrelevant to God! (Psalm 90:4 NIV 2 Peter 3:8 NIV)
The “land” could have “produce”d various primates, over eons of time! At some point in time God chose to put a soul in the most advanced primate, thus creating “man kind”! There could have been vast periods of time between “the beginning”, “the first day” and “the sixth day”! March 23, 2014 Lee Stanford Shears

Added Nov.05, 2014 Jeremiah 17:9 NIV The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? – Proverbs 28:26 ESV Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered. – I thought the Bible could only be inspired by God if it was literal. But tracing the years from Christ back to Adam conflicts with secular claims for the age of human culture. The figurative writing in Genesis does not disprove the Bible, but that God inspired it in a way other than what I thought! – Psalm 119:50 (Douay-Rheims) This hath comforted me in my humiliation: because thy word hath enlivened me.

I have come to believe that parts of the Bible are written as figurative exemplifications including parts of Genesis, not intended to be an accurate chronological historical record. Perhaps this was initiated so we would learn to trust in the omnipresence of the living God–more than the written word!!!

Added Oct.29, 2014: 2046 years Adam to Abraham, 4200 years Abraham to Christ(100 year generations), 2014 years Christ to present equals 8260. Allowing for historical gaps*, this would put the years in the ball park of archaeological human history. *https://answersingenesis.org/bible-timeline/genealogy/do-the-genesis-genealogies-contain-gaps/ (No Gaps)
Is it widely known and accepted that biblical genealogies never attempt to establish historical fact?

Early 2014:
I believe the time that mankind was created cannot be determined from the Bible. The actuallity in years even with   calculation of the lineage of Biblical geneology has been lost in translation. There are to many discrepancies in the wording of Genesis. On the fifth day God as “US” created mankind male and female now in “HIS” own image. God continued working on the sixth day but what He/They(?) was/were doing is not revealed and God rested on the seventh day. Then the lineage on which the belief held by many, that mankind was created six thousand years ago with Adam begins. Eve was not created as the female stated beforehand above, she was formed from a part of Adam’s body. Cain the first born went to the land of Nod where unbefore mentioned humans lived and married a woman, so apparently in the beginning other unmentioned sons and daughters were born to Adam and Eve because as it is stated; she would become the mother of all the living. So the desendants of these unafore mentioned son’s and daughter’s of Adam and Eve included the  Nephilim giant humans whose daughters  the _”sons of God”(?)_ went to and had children by them. After this their next child Seth identical to Adam was born one-hundred and thirty years later, also other sons and daughters were born to them over the next eight-hundred years; so Eve also lived at least nine-hundred and thirty years. So according to the Bible mankind was created about six-thousand years ago, but there’s evidence of 10,000-12,000 year old cultures. This does not disprove the Bible, only unexplained differences in time. Time is irrelevent to God, Satan is the author of confusion and the human mind is decietful above all things!!!(Bible references, look them up!) End note: Could God have changed the speed of Earth’s rotation, thus altering the length of years do you suppose? Lee Stanford Shears, 2:43 P.M., Thursday, October 16, 2014, Clio, MI, USA

Was the Bible intended to be chronologically correct, or just a synopsis of what God has done? On the sixth day, If God doubled the orbit speed of the earth around the sun, wouldn’t twice as many years have occurred in the same time span, or if on the seventh day time stood still while God rested; wouldn’t human culture have been advancing and appear to be older to researchers.

My theories are only speculation as I am not trying to rewrite the Bible! Perhaps the simplest answer to the Biblical account of when mankind came into being is that it is an allegory meant to establish the lineage leading up to the Messiah–Christ Jesus!!!

Revelation 22 (New International Version):18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll:(AX) If anyone adds anything to them,(AY) God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.(AZ) 19 And if anyone takes words away(BA) from this scroll of prophecy,(BB) God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life(BC) and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.
John 21:25 Jesus did many other things as well.(AE) If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

Update  Oct. 29, 2016
Satan is the author of confusion and has the power allowed by God to alter the carbon dating of matter, God has control of time so the length of what are called years may have varied in the past. We must take all this into consideration in bible study and focus on where the bible leads and that is out of time and space into the spiritual realm, leading us to Christ and transformation into divine nature!!!

About the age of the earth and humanity issue.
God is in control of time, which can be lenghthened or shortened miraculously by God.
Genesis 1:5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
No mention of twenty-four hours here.
Genesis 1:18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.
Notice the word “govern”.
Genesis 6:3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”
Genesis 8:13 By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry.
An obvious alteration of time by God.
2 Corinthians 2:11 in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
Revelation 12:9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Satan has the power to alter the strata confusing the carbon dating method of determining the age of earth and humanity.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
Proverbs 28:26 Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
Human thoughts cannot be trusted about the spiritual realm.
1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
This is when the issue about the age of the earth and humanity will be revealed!  Lee Stanford Shears

Doesn’t Carbon-14 Dating Disprove the Bible?
by Mike Riddle   on September 20, 2007
“Dr. Willard Libby, the founder of the carbon-14 dating method, assumed this ratio to be constant. His reasoning was based on a belief in evolution, which assumes the earth must be billions of years old. Assumptions in the scientific community are extremely important. If the starting assumption is false, all the calculations based on that assumption might be correct but still give a wrong conclusion. Dr. Libby chose to ignore this discrepancy (nonequilibrium state), and he attributed it to experimental error. However, the discrepancy has turned out to be very real. The ratio of 14C /12C is not constant. What does this mean? If it takes about 30,000 years to reach equilibrium and 14C is still out of equilibrium, then maybe the earth is not very old. All radiometric dating methods are based on assumptions about events that happened in the past. If the assumptions are accepted as true (as is typically done in the evolutionary dating processes), results can be biased toward a desired age. In the reported ages given in textbooks and other journals, these evolutionary assumptions have not been questioned, while results inconsistent with long ages have been censored. When the assumptions were evaluated and shown faulty, the results supported the biblical account of a global Flood and young earth. Christians should not be afraid of radiometric dating methods. Carbon-14 dating is really the friend of Christians, and it supports a young earth.”(excerpts from article) – https://answersingenesis.org/geology/carbon-14/doesnt-carbon-14-dating-disprove-the-bible/

Jan. 28, 2017 The spiritual realm is real, satan can confuse the age of strata and God can alter the measurement of time. We must focus on being in Christ and Christ being in us the only way possible for human change is being transformed into divine nature, which God does..we can’t! Lee Stanford Shears
