    Where do you base this "clearly" on? I do not find it clear at all. Gen 1
    is in my opinion clearly a beautiful explanation in a literary (poetic)
    form of the totality of God's creation.
    Even f the human writers inspired by God thought that it was history, it
    could be a compression of history in a short form, skipping over many, many
    Still, why did God inspire someone to write this? I believe, to tell us
    that none of us is without sin, and none of us knows what God exactly did,
    nor do we need to know it.
    Would God try to speak to us in nature in facts which are not true?
