The story of creation as listed in the King James Version of the Bible is accurate and true. The evidence for this is overwhelming. If you do not want to believe in God and want to hold onto your atheism, then stop here and do not read any further. You've been warned.
1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
This is a thesis statement and the terms will be defined in the following text. The word for God here in the original is "elohiym" (el-o-heem) which means "plural" in English. This refers to the "Godhead" Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20 and Colossians 2:9 or the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Jesus is the Word of God, which means he is the speaker who says "Let there be...." The Holy Spirit is the action who actually does the work and the Father is the planner on who's plans all of creation was designed. Also, notice that the word heaven is singular.
2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Notice that there was water here and that it was empty. Water is a unique substance. The harder you hit it, the harder it becomes. When it cools, it expands and when it heats, it contracts. Most of our bodies are made of water.
3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Notice that the first thing that God created is light. Einstein discovered something very interesting about light. Namely the formula Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. Einstein's general theory of relativity shows that light, time and space are connected. In order for the GPS satellites to stay in sync with earth time, they must be set to run slower per day. This indicates that when God created light, he also created time. The faster you go, the slower time goes compared to earth time. How could the author of Genesis 1:3-5 have known that light and time are tied together? Answer: they couldn't possibly have known. If you stop and think about it, time actually turns out to be a gift. We can learn, be surprised, change, grow, experience sensations sequentially...etc... This brings us to a recent discovery, and that is that the universe is accelerating in it's expansion. That means as you go backwards in time, it went slower and slower. What causes acceleration? A constant steady outward force. More pressure on one side than on the other causes acceleration. Think about your car. The more and longer you push your foot down on the accelerator, the longer your car accelerates. It will do this until it reaches equilibrium or your car is going as fast as your wheels are turning. When your tires are trying to turn faster than you are going, you have acceleration. When your tires are trying to go slower than you are going, then you have deceleration. So God created matter in a vacuum. This matter had to go somewhere. Energy and intelligence and work created organized, sophisticated, highly advanced matter.
6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7And 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. 8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
This describes a water layer that surround this planet, with this air layer called Heaven. This would be the first Heaven because it contains the planet, the second Heaven would be the "heaven of heavens" (1 Kings 8:27), which would be outer space because it contains all of the other heavens (atmospheres) . The third Heaven would be God Himself because all of creation is inside of God the Father. It turns out that the word heaven actually means contains or container. Firmament (raquya.... raw-kee'ah) means "vault of heaven that holds water above". A vault is a curved support structure, which is what they would have seen looking up before the flood.
You may ask how it stayed up there? This can be duplicated today. First, you need to be in zero gravity. For example, floating in space, kind of like the earth itself. Next, take a gallon of water. The water will form a sphere. Next, insert a straw or tube in slowly blow in some air. Since there is no gravity, the air bubble will center itself, equal pressure on all sides. Next add another gallon of water slowly and water will collect on the end of the straw and then you will have a ball of water surrounded by air then surrounded by water.
You may ask why didn't it freeze? Moving salt water doesn't freeze. Also, the heat from the sun would have warmed the water. Also, the pressure of the water pressing on the atmosphere would have added more heat, along with the fact the atmosphere itself would be retaining heat. All of these factors together would have prevented the water from freezing.
This explains a whole host of unanswered questions.
1. This is where the water came from for Noah's flood
2. The mass of the planet was smaller originally and then became what it is today. The mass reached today's size after the water layer collapsed.
3. The water layer was moving salt water, which does not freeze. The water froze as it collapsed at the north and south poles freezing everything on the spot, which explains why they found a frozen mastodon with grass still in it's mouth. The ice age did not take 25 thousand years to happen, it took minutes. Remember tropical plants and animals frozen under the polar caps.
4. The atmospheric pressure was much higher and it was a constant temperature year round and all over the planet, which explains why there are tropical plants under the ice caps in the south pole and above the arctic circle in the north.
5. This layer protected the earth from direct radiation from the sun, thereby affecting all radiation type dating methods including carbon dating.
6. This enabled plants and animals to live approximately ten times longer than they do today. this test can be duplicated on animals today by having a biosphere anchored under water at various depths.
March 31, 2010 current modern day example of long life
This is an undersea creature that equates to a rolly polly on land. This a giant rolly polly. How did it get so big? It is a really old rolly polly.
b. Scientists at Bangor University in north Wales said the mollusk, an ocean quahog clam, was aged between 405 and 410 years. Once Ming had settled down from the excitement of winning the title, researchers were able to confirm his age by counting rings on its shell.
7. Reptiles continue to grow till the day they die. Mammals have certain things that continue to grow on them as well, like hair.
c. Hair and tusks keep growing on an elephant (Mastodon)
d. Canine teeth on a tiger (saber tooth tiger)
e. 80 foot long great white shark
f. dragon fly with 2 ft wing span
g. 90 ft tall plum tree
h. all of the dinosaurs
When a bubble collapses, it doesn't go straight down, it all chases around to the opposite side of where is was burst and then it falls down. This character of a collapsing bubble would have caused this salt water to chase around to the far side of the planet before it fell. This falling mass of water crushed in the crust of the earth and forced the magma through the planet and bubbling up the opposite side. The water that did come down as rain would then have someplace to runoff to. This would have set up the conditions for the one giant continent to later divide (Genesis 10:25).
The water layer collapsing explains:
1. where the fossils came from
2. why the magnetic north changed
3. why the rotation of the earth changed
4. why all of the volcanoes on earth erupted simultaneously
5. why the ocean bubbled like a soda pop
6. there are no more giant: turtles, sharks, lizards, etc.......
7. why the ages of men dropped off from being over 900 yrs to what they are today.
8. why Noah saw a rainbow for the first time.
9. why heat and cold and winter and summer are mentioned for the first time after the flood.

Orbital Decay: How many degree's are on a compass? 360 right? Why? Answer, because that is exactly how many days that there used to be in a full year. How many days for a lunar month? There used to be 30 days. So what happened? It is called orbital decay. Ever heard of Skylab? It spent six years orbiting Earth until its decaying orbit caused it to re-enter the atmosphere. So now, a year takes 365.25 days and a lunar month is about 28 days or so. What does that mean? Orbital Decay. Achieving an orbit requires highly mathematical skill. Just ask NASA. All orbits decay. In order for something to be in orbit, it requires a forward velocity that is matched exactly to the mass of the object with respect to the distance between the objects.
If the bodies don't fit into this formula, then there is no orbit, and eventually, the two bodies make contact.
Let's talk about the age of the universe using what we now know about the passing of time and how it varies with the velocity of the object/objects. The GPS satellite clock has to be sped up in order to maintain Earth Time, otherwise the clock on the orbiting GPS satellite would lose time everyday relative to "Earth Time". Now if the passage of time is slower on a satellite then on Earth. What do you think the time differential is with other solar systems or galaxies? But more on that later. I have to go and fix a customers TV right now.
9And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
This is were God defines the term "Earth" as being dry ground.
11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
The term "after his kind" means according to it's blue print or design. In other words, God the Father designed it, Jesus (The Word of God) spoke it and the Holy Spirit built it according to the Father's design. Also, further note that it was designed to reproduce and replace itself. Interesting concept, let a man made creation do that!
12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13And the evening and the morning were the third day.
Notice that God is preparing layer upon layer of what is needed to support human life. Clearly, this is no accident. This is typically how God works in the lives of those who have given themselves to Him. He prepares you for a specially designed purpose. He brings you through different experiences in order to teach you and help you grow as a Christian in order to accomplish and fulfill His plan for your life, which will maximize your time here from a Heavenly perspective.
14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
In verse 7 we read that man became a living soul, notice it does not say a living being or living body. This is because the word breath also means spirit. In other words, the Lord God breathed his own Holy Spirit into the soul of the man and he became a living soul.... just like when the soul is put into the body, it becomes a living being. In the new testament, we see Jesus breathed on His disciples and said, "recieve ye the Holy Ghost".
8And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in
16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
18And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 19And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam,
and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead
thereof; 22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man,
made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23And Adam said,
This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be
called Woman, because she was taken out of
1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? 12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
16Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
20And Adam called his wife¡¯s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
22And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one
of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take
also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23Therefore
the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from
whence he was taken. 24So he drove out the man; and he placed at
the east of the
1And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. 2And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
3And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. 4And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: 5But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
6And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? 7If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
8And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Cain means "possession" and Able means
"breath". In other words, Possession killed Breath. If you
compare this with Genesis 2:7 and the comments following, even though the two
words for breath are a little different, they are similar and point to the
word spirit or more precisely God's Spirit. This concept is incredibly
similar to what Jesus said in the New Testament, " 24And
the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth
again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the
9And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother¡¯s keeper? 10And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother¡¯s blood crieth unto me from the ground. 11And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother¡¯s blood from thy hand; 12When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
13And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. 15And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
16And Cain went out from the
presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the
19And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. 20And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. 21And his brother¡¯s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. 22And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
23And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. 24If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
25And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. 26And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.
