“And God said let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
Genesis 1:6 – Hebrew direct translation in English
“and·he-is-saying, Elohim, he-shall-become, atmosphere, in·midst-of, the·waters, and·he-shall-become, separating, between, waters, to·waters,”
As described above this is not water or not just water, it’s all the atoms in the universe, the proverbial sea of matter. Hydrogen and Oxygen which make up a molecule of water are among all the atoms which are now present. In this verse God creates gravity. This is a really big deal in the physics community as there is much debate over whether gravity is part of the ToE or if it was an emergent property? If gravity is part of the ToE then dark matter and dark energies also need to be present. If, however, gravity is an emergent propertythen dark matter and energies are not necessary. I am not a physicist, but I do believe the bible to be accurate. I believe, in due course, science will prove that gravity is an emergent property, separate from energy and time. This would make the ToE impossible.
Water formation is very important at this stage! Scientists have just published a paper, which proves that the water was ubiquitous at this stage of creation. If you can go back and read the hyperlink on “Early” in the previous post this will explain how deuteriumformation occurred.
“And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which [were] under the firmament from the waters which [were] above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day”
Genesis 1:7-8 – Hebrew direct translation in English
“and·he-is-making, Elohim, the·atmosphere, and·he-is-separating, between, the·waters, which, from·under, to·the·atmosphere, and·between, the·waters, which, from·on, to·the·atmosphere, and·he-is-becoming, so, he-is-calling, Elohim, to·the·atmosphere, heavens, and·he-is-becoming, evening, and·he-is-becoming, morning, day, second.”
In this verse gravity is starting to take hold and condense matter. This process forms larger and larger clumps of matter similar to a snowball rolling down a hill or what science calls “the accretion theory” (future planets and stars). Gravity creates atmosphere which we would now call the sky.
