Saying Christians are delusional is tantamount to saying they are crazy. While I am not a Christian, I don't consider Christians to be crazy.
As a Christian, given my dictionary definition of delusional above, you'd have to think millions of atheists, Muslims, Buddhists, Pantheists, Deists, and Hindus delusional with respect to their God beliefs, no?
How many millions of Muslims think they're going to get a bunch of virgins allocated to them in heaven?
You must consider them delusional with regard to that belief, surely.
I think it's pretty unrealistic of you to lump all God believers together, when in reality their views of God differ vastly. In fact, in many regards, they differ so greatly that atheism is actually closer to them than Christianity (Deism, Buddhism, and agnosticism, for instance).

You just completely ignored the point I made. Your reply has nothing to do with what I posted. This isn't about the "6 Day Creation" period. This is about the Timeline in the Bible that starts with Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago and onward. Here, look at the Biblical people chart that begins in 4,000 B.C. with "Adam":

The fact that humans walked the Earth 400,000 years ago obliterates the "Adam and Eve" fairy tale.
It was answered. Please re-read it or ignore it. Either way, my view on it is in there.
The 6000yr timeline was introduced by Ussher in the 17th Century. The 6 days can be looked at, and is in many believer's view, a spiritual accounting, not a literal 24hr day clock. For many Christians, jews, & believers since the beginning never have looked at the 6 days as literal. Since God can create all things at once, and is within and outide of time, it's just silly to believe in the 24hr/6day timeline in a literal sense.
There are a few out there that do believe it though. So, like I said, you're free to believe whatever interpretation you want. But, upon reading the Bible, and knowing God created all things at once, I simply cannot view the 6 days in any light other than a spiritual reference, not literal.

You do see the hypocrisy of that statement, right??? LOL
