Lutherans confess the prophetic and apostolic faith as it has been handed down throughout the generations, but not because they see that earlier Christians did so. Interpreting Scripture in light of what earlier Christians say is a very dangerous procedure, for Arianism preceded the Nicene Creed, and first-century false teachers preceded both.
For Lutherans, Scripture interprets Scripture, that is, clear passages shed light on unclear passages. Otherwise, Scripture would be so unclear that it would require interpretation by human reasoning, whether that be one’s own reasoning or the reasoning handed down in one human tradition or another.
The main creation page of DawningRealm.org no longer has its previous content, which now appears in Three views on the Genesis days of creation from a Calvinistic (i.e., semi-rationalistic) perspective with its Calvinistic bias marked in the new title.
Update to the Genesis days of creation:
Fixation on various scientific and theological theories related to the age and motion of the earth often overshadows the central teaching of Scripture. Anders Nygren extensively researched what is essential to Christianity, as seen most notably in his Essence of Christianity and Agape and Eros. For comments on the latter, see the blog Agapē Enthroned.

What higher gift can we inherit?
It is faith’s bond and solid base;
It is the strength of heart and spirit,
The covenant of hope and grace.
Lord, may Thy body and Thy blood
Be for my soul the highest good!
—The Lutheran Hymnal, "I come, O Savior, to Thy Table," 315; cf. Matt. 26:28
