“A human being is created on the sixth day, in the womb.” – Dr. Michael Bisconti
Here are the first six days after conception. The reason there are seven pictures is that the first two pictures cover two points in time on day 1. The picture with the red circle is day 6. The red circle encompasses the earliest stage of the “micro-embryo.” Most of you will be amazed to learn that the physical form of the new life does not appear until the sixth day. Wow, what a coincidence (sarcasm is for non-Bible-believers), considering that the Bible says that man was created on the sixth day.
The world of a new life is created before the new life. Just like God created the world before he created man; so, in the creation of a human being in the womb, God creates the world of the human being (the micro-womb) before he creates the human being (the micro-embryo).
We will provide proof in two steps. First, here are two diagram-pictures (actual pictures with diagrams inserted) that represent the facts:
On Day 5 here is what exists in the womb:
On Day 6 here is what exists in the womb:
Second, here are two actual pictures that present the facts reported in the above two diagram-pictures:
On the off chance that you don’t understand what you just read, here is our main point:
Just like man was created on the sixth day, in the Bible, so, human beings are created on the sixth day, in the womb.
Now, here is some of the formal terminology used in cell biology to refer to the micro-womb and micro-embryo.
The micro-embryo is called the “inner cell mass” (abbreviated “ICM”) or “embryoblast” or “pluriblast.”
The micro-womb before the inner cell mass appears is called a “morula.”
The micro-womb after the inner cell mass appears is called a “blastocyst.”
The subsurface part of the inner cell mass is called the “epiblast.”
Finally, upon closer examination, we see that the micro-embryo is actually a portion of the inner cell mass, not the entire inner cell mass. And, more specifically, the micro-embryo is actually a portion of the epiblast. In other words:
In the Bible, man was created from a piece of the world (“the dust of the ground”) on the sixth day. God took this piece of the world and transformed it into a human being on the sixth day.
In the womb, man is created from a piece of the world (some cells of the micro-womb) on the sixth day. God takes this piece of the world and transforms it into a human being on the sixth day.
Note that new micro-womb cells are created at the location in the micro-womb where the micro-embryo will be created. Later, some of the new micro-womb cells are transformed into micro-embryo cells (just like the dust of the ground was transformed into the first human being, Adam).
