I in general agree with what you've stated here but what's up with the silly and divisive Protestant bashing?
Creation thread clears this up:
You can replace 'morning' and 'evening' with 'beginning' and 'end'. It's not as complicated as you make it out to be. The creation account is written in symbols and metaphors.
This of course is refuted by: https://www.kolbecenter.org/the-traditional-catholic-doctrine-of-creation/
