Actually, the 'seven days' is a lie - it only took six.

Genesis 2:
2By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

In this work, the authors have explored the pressure evolution of the structures, densities, and transport properties of a realistic model basaltic melt. This model basaltic melt consisted of CaO, MgO, Al2O3, and SiO2.

Wait, they get paid to do this? I run these simulations for fun on a Raspberry Pi. It's like Excitebike, but much easier.

Was the title of that paper serious or was it the scientific equivalent of Pricipal caught sayof?

He could of done it in 5, but he slacked off on Friday to get overtime on the 6th day

Scientific research topics make for lousy bumper stickers.

Who is to say we are talking about Earth Days?

As long as they're somewhere else.

Because the day is defined by the Earth's rotation.

You can call any other period of time you wish a "day", but the definition is "how long it takes the Earth to rotate completely".

To add a further level of pedantry to this pyramid, 'rotate completely' with respect to what?

If you're measuring against the position of the sun, then that's a solar day, and 24 hours is correct.

If you're measuring against the position of the fixed stars, then that's a sidereal day, and it's about 23 hours 56 minutes.

(the solar day is longer because the sun itself moves relatively day-to-day, and the rotation has to 'catch up')

It's worth repeating TFA is not attached to creationism, but this one is not attached to reality.  Going through the authors' CV leads me to think it's just a joke.
