This article was written by me at an earlier time and now has been rewritten by me in order to give other readers an opportunity to benefit from it helping them to understand how the Bible is worded to tell a different story about creation. This one about the origin of all human conflict.
Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning 'God' created the heavens and the earth."
Genesis: 1:2"Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep, and God's active force was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters."
Discussion: These scriptures explain, God created elements to form 'earth' and 'water' materials that He brought together by willing a spinning force. Accordingly, where water struck the ball of earth with less and greater amounts of impact various water body depths and patterns were created on the earth's surface. That produced oceans, islands, lakes, rivers, and streams. Gradually, the landscape of earth incorporated mountains, valleys, and continents caused by earthquakes, tectonic plate clashes and volcano eruptions.
Genesis 1:14 "And God went on to say: 'Let luminaries come to be in the expanse of the heavens to make a division between the day and the night; and they must serve as signs and for seasons and for days and years.' "
Discussion: This scripture describes God creating the Sun, Moon, and Stars, i.e., the solar system. God is commanding his Angels to do the work of securing the earth in an environment of darkness and light, heat and cool, both of which, will serve the dual purpose of keeping track of time by seasons in weather changes and numbers of days and nights between each season within a full cycle, called a year. Accordingly, the Angels tilted the earth on its axis, set it in an oblong orbit around the sun at a precise distance from it, and calibrated the speed of the earth's spin.
