Sorry for he delay.
quote:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
The deep and the waters here signify the void that was before the Earth "was". I get it. Except the Earth is here because of the galaxy, and the galaxy is here because of the Big Bang.
That's wrong. This perfectly lines up.
1- God created the heavens and the earth. This IS the universe. The sun, moon, earth...etc.
2- starts with the way began.
Just for kicks for you and others here: ONCE UPON A TIME
God created everything (verse 1) and this is the siutation.. the earth was formless and empty (verse 2)
quote:3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
Day and night are only possible because of the Sun. The Earth and the Sun are roughly the same age and were both made from condensation of matter (gas and solidus for the Sun and Earth, respectively)
This is correct and I explained that in my earlier post. My studies have led me to believe that it was the light from what would become the sun. No issue here....
quote:6 And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” 7 So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.
The only way there could be the sky is if there were atmosphere, and the only way there would be atmosphere is from the degassing of lava. It is still debated just how molten Earth was prior to cooling down, but you bet there were some active lava flows and deeper magma bodies that put much gas into the atmosphere. This part creation science.
Currently matches science. Correct.
quote:11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.
The only way for the magma and lava degassing to be bearable by living organisms is if the toxic components, e.g. carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide are to be reworked and replaced by molecules that life is tolerant of. Trees were not the first plant. What if the author meant photoautotroph? Well that would mean some algae that create lots of oxygen to the point where the atmosphere is bearable. But what about the sea? Lava vents in the sea as well. These bacteria/algae are the heros of making Earth bearable. They made the water and much much later atmosphere bearable for more complicated life forms to evolve and radiate.
Of no concern to me at at all. What ever stages came prior to this is not mentioned. The author does not go into that. Me adding to it would be flawed. There is no contradiction to science, only a lack of information.
quote:14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.
Our solar system was spawned at roughly the same time, i.e. the Sun and its surrounding planets are all about the same age. The same can't be said for surrounding stars and galaxies, which all have varying ages. Other stars and galaxies had to exist before there was any tree. The Moon had to exist before there was any tree as well, and probably before any thick atmosphere.(The Moon is a piece of the Earth that was knocked loose from the planet due to a large impact; it remains trapped in Earth's gravitational field.) One huge point: You'd think that God would realize that the Sun is responsible for the light during the day as well as the light during the night? Like moonlight is just sunlight reflecting off the surface of the Moon.
Again, there is no conflict with science here. How long did it take for fusion to begin in the what became the sun? This goes with what I stated above. The beginning of the sun was already in place. Was the T Tauri Star now a sun at this point in genesis? Once you grasp that, you can easily understand what is going on.
The Sun was something before it was the sun. T Tauri Star is what we now beleive that to be. At some point fusion began and it became the sun.
You ar right. We need the moon. It was there.. it became visible. Now, to completely understand this, you have to study the hebrew language. Look up the difference in create, created, and made.
I will stop here and add the second half of your post after my family is asleep tonight.
