The earth was created first. There was nothing else but the earth and a giant empty universe.
Light comes next. Light comes from the sun, but the sun doesn’t come until three days later. So, this light comes from where? God? And there’s a day/night cycle, so the earth is spinning, and this light comes from one direction. Or does the light circle around the earth?
In these primal days, God is alone with earth, spinning, dancing, before the drama of humanity begins.
The earth is the oldest thing in the universe.
