I never said that the instances of word combinations with yom proved that there is a, “rule requiring the alleged restriction”. I used the data as addition evidence, along with Exodus 20:11 and 31:17 in making the case that yom in Genesis 1 is meant to be interpreted as a normal 24-hour day. Really, you don’t need anything more than the Exodus verses.
The footnotes from the section of my paper were taken out by this system, but there were 2 sources in the passage, one from Dennis Lamoureux’s (hardly a YEC) book Evolutionary Creationism, along with 2 from GotQuestions.org, a YEC group. The figures of yom appearing 410 times outside of G1 is backed up by Rodney Whitfield at OldEarth.org, though he disputes 2 of the instances. Again, I’m not proving a rule, but if the figures are correct (even granting the 2 exceptions) then, IMO anyway, they strongly support a normal G! yom, along with Exodus verses.
I can see why the, “yom with a number” stats would be used to attack the Day Age Teory, but why would they discount the Framework Theory? In fact, my paper was written to prove that the FT is the best way to interpret Genesis 1.
