Well, if you had read the post I was responding to, you would have seen that I was pointing out the absurdity of taking the creation story in Genesis so literally. Shlomo wrote, "Prior to The Second Day, there is at least an indication that there was no gravity. That's why God said 'Let there be a firmament (i.e., an expanse; space ).'. With a firmament, gravity could then happen. " We know that if there was a creation, it took place over billions of years, not literally in six days. So doesn't it seem silly to quibble that story has plants being created before the sun or or about just when He made gravity? The story was a folk tale retold for hundreds of years before it was written down, so do you think there is literal truth in it?
