Conybeare and Phillips, Ref. 118, p. lix–lx. The three views Conybeare discussed were:
- the theory, like Ure’s, that the primary rocks were formed in the initial creation of the earth on Day 1, the transition, secondary and tertiary strata were formed during the 1,600 years between Day 2 and the Flood, and the diluvium were laid down and the general appearance of the present continents were formed by the Flood,
- the gap theory in which the primary to tertiary were formed in the millions of years between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 and the rest was attributed to the Flood, and
- the day-age theory in which the primary to tertiary were formed during indefinitely long creation days of Genesis 1 and the rest by the Flood.
