In the creation account of Genesis, the author manages to get through 3 days before the Sun and Moon are created to light the Earth. If there is a Bible literalist in the house, I would like to know how the phrase "And the evening and the morning were the..." can be used in the first 3 days when there is no physical reference point that a viewer can use to watch an evening and then a morning.

In other words, doesn't an evening an a morning require a rotating planetary orb with an atmosphere to scatter the the light from an illuminating source before that light source appears above the horizontal plane of said orb? (whew)
