Are you talking about the Gap theory, which states that there's a gap of an unknown amount of time between the first sentence of Genesis 1:2 and the second sentence of that same verse?
I am saying that Genesis was written so that MAN could have HIS concept of Creation which he did not and does not yet understand. Darkness covered the earth. The earth was hot from volcanic activity and high methane content, much like Venus is NOW. The gases, ash, and vapor created a cloud cover that prevented sunlight as we now see it.
The earth did finally cool and the sun was then able to burn off the outer shield that had surrounded us, but who knows how long THAT took?
Here is a concept for you. Mars IS as we WILL be and Venus WILL be as we ARE now. We are being pushed slowly, slowly away from the sun. So is Venus. So is Mars. Light doesn’t move anything but SOUND does. Listen to the sound of the sun sometime. Without our limited hearing capacity, if we could actually hear the noise all around us, we would go mad.
We can’t hear the sounds our solar system makes, but it moves things. There is a balance which is why I MUST believe that Creation was no mere accident. Imagine this throughout the entire universe.
And then there is Archaea. Which means the entire universe is thriving and teeming with life.
How anyone can say there is no G-d is mind boggling to me, let alone DARE try to set limits for the limitless.
And here is one last question for ya. Where do you suppose the very IDEA of G-d actually came from?
