CG, while I watch for a question, let me spark a thought....

"and darkness was over the surface of the deep"

What is this 'surface of the deep" in your mind?

The first thing needed to be able to understand what is the "light" is that because the Bible did not say that the "sun" was created on the 4th day, that we not force the text to say that against it's will....

Once you understand that the Bible does not teach that the sun was created on the 4th day, it opens up the text more, and you find that nothing in the text goes against what we learn in science and evolution....

The two works walk hand in hand....
