Genesis 1:1-2 reads, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
He created – out of nothing.
Now, I don’t consider myself a Bible scholar, but I like to imagine. I believe in the 6-day creation theory. I mean, God is God. He can do it – he can speak the world into existence in six days. Actually, I find it easier to believe he created it in six days, than to believe it evolved over billions of years.
But, there is the question of dinosaurs. And other things that don’t fit into my 6-day belief.
Scholars say there is a gap between verse one and verse two, “Now the earth was formless and empty…”. That, to me, explains the billions of years and the dinosaurs era that evolutionists believe.
Therefore, is it possible both creationists and evolutionists are right? I’d love to hear your opinion – or research. But, please, if you opine, use simple language that this simple mind of mine can understand. In other words, use layman terms :).
