Dont think so. Its just you People who dont understand what you are Reading as usuall.
It's all laid out for us in Genesis. Nothing to misunderstand about the order in which it states things occurred, and how incompatible it is with cosmology.
No talk about how it's a vision from Moses, or anything else, changes that.

Plus, the order of events are STILL wrong. I don't care what your metaphors say, the stars weren't created after the Earth. Heck, according to the bible, the sun and moon were created after the earth too. Also wrong. The bible narrates the creation of animal life several times.
You are making many assumptions. Care to back that up with science? I don't think there is even one scientist who would definitively say what came first the earth or the sun. We don't know.
There are two different accounts. One the account of everything, the other the account of the garden. I imagine God could have created the animals in the garden in the same way he created the animals that are not in the garden, no contradiction.
The great thing about metaphors, they can adapt to science. Because you don't want to accept that the genesis account could be valid doesn't make your opinion more valid then mine.
Plants could have arose on the earth before our Sun, simply from the residual light of the big bang. Many plants and animals survive in extremely low light like would have been present after the bang.
You can't disprove my metaphorical take on genesis no matter how much you would like to. I believe you are debating with someone who understands the science better than you, who wouldn't make such a claim if it were impossible.
all that statement says is that plants without chlorophyll were the norm---until the visible sprectrum of light type of plants took over and remain until this day.
visible 'light' may not have been around even as the young energetic stars were present (they may have been invisible Gamma ray emitting instead of the lower spectrum of light we 'see' after these Suns aged or quieted down)
