Re: Genesis 6-day account is allegorical, no conflict evolution
My comment

The difference between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 is quite simple

The Lord makes a statement that in the beginning He created

There is a vast period of time between this event and about 6000 year ago when the earth is seen as being desolate and void of life forms as the result of His judgment against Satan and his rebellion [Job 38:1-7]

The sons of God initially were the created angels [Job 38:1-7; Isaiah 14; Ezekiel 28; Revelation 12]

Satan defected and 1/3 of the angels followed

Then about 6000 years ago the Lord moved to recondition a judged earth

The earth and the other planets are of the same age and were created in the beginning ..... perhaps billions of years old or more

And today the other planets continue to bear the scars of great judgment, upheaval, and destruction including the same for the earth under the earth's surface .... none of the other planets are capable of supporting life forms

Only the earth was reconditioned just as Genesis 1:3-25 records the Lord's actions

These things are all recent events to replace life support systems for the earth .... but the other planets remain the same .... void and lifeless

The reconditioning acts should be observed from the earth itself as the Lord began the makeover .... both the earth and all of the other heavenly bodies including the sun and moon were present and created long before

In this case He made the sun, moon, and stars to appear from the earth by dissipating the thick waters above from those below forming the atmospheric layer between .... all were already there but could not be seen because of the darkness formed by the water vapors above the great deep which covered the earth

So His actions brought forth a reconditioned earth for His next action ..... to form the human being for inhabiting the newly reconditioned earth [Genesis 1:26]

His initial creation of the earth and universe are all of extreme age, but the reconditioned earth and the presence of humans is of about 6000 years old according to the genealogical record of humanity recorded in the Bible

He simply has not revealed all of the details of the time lapsing between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2

If so, one would need a fleet of semi-trucks to carry the Bible around

What is revealed to the human in scripture and by natural observation is directly related to the introduction of mankind on the earth about 6000 years ago

Re: Genesis 6-day account is allegorical, no conflict evolution
Well that is what you say Coyote, but the Lord reveals the truth of the matter

The Genesis account of creation is absolutely true

The drama never ends Om

And you know quite well what a statement is, followed by scriptural reference

"The Genesis account of creation has been disproved in any number of ways.

Your belief makes no difference, as the facts are unchanged by your belief."

You have the wrong facts Coyote

Re: Genesis 6-day account is allegorical, no conflict evolution
"But please, don't just reply with a few dozen bible quotes as if that were evidence"

Sorry .... I cannot comply

I have discovered truth communicated by the one and only God of creation .... no doubt

I would suggest that you dd the same .... but you will do .... what you will do

Re: Genesis 6-day account is allegorical, no conflict evolution
"And because of that you can't recognize any other evidence."

I don't need to Coyote

Once discovered ..... eternally bound

.... and I do know about the "other evidence" rendered correctly ... a perfect parallel with the Genesis account of creation

I heard the coyotes howling last night where I live and thought about you
