I just don't get it.
Don't feel sorry for us just treat us as human beings who disregard one more God than you disregard. Much like you deny the existence of Apollo, Zeus and Thor we ALSO deny their existence! We have MUCH more in common than you might expect. We just add one extra God to the list of God's that you do not believe in.
The Bible is faith, so don't confuse faith with science. With faith, I believe God can do anything. He can make plants that live on light because light was created before the Sun. However, it was only a day or two different in time, so no big deal.

Just to make a quick reference for people, this is a quick list of some of the brilliant scientific "facts" (read blatant flasehoods) found in the Bible. Feel free to ask for explanations.
Plants existed before the Sun and Moon (Genesis 1:11-16)
The Earth is created before the Sun (Genesis 1)
...actually, to just shorten this: The order of events in Genesis 1 is wrong
The Sun and Moon are set in a physical firmament above the Earth (Genesis 1:16-17)
The Moon is a/produces light (Genesis 1:16, Isaiah 13:10)
Global flood (Genesis..mentioned several other times in later books)
Humanity at a time of civilization which would have enabled large scale construction projects shared a single language (Genesis 11)
Diverse language happened instantly rather than gradually (Genesis 11)
The Hebrew population in Egypt somehow goes from dozens to millions in a few hundred years. (Exodus)
Hares and coneys are ruminants (Leviticus 11:5-6)
God's cure for lepers (Leviticus 14:2-52)
Snakebites are cured by a brass serpent on a pole (Numbers 21:8)
Giants (way too many passages Numbers, Deuteronomy, 2 Samuel, Amos)
Dragons (Deuteronomy 32:33, Psalms 148:7)
The Sun apparently moves and can be made to stand still so that people can sneak attack others at night (Joshua 10:12-13)
The Earth has pillars...I guess instead of being hung it's placed.(1 Samuel 2:8, Job 9:6,26:11,38:4-6...actually, a lot of places)
Pi = 3(1 Kings 7:23, 2 Chronicles 4:2)
Either the Earth stopped rotating and moved backward a bit or the Sun moved backward on its own...well, we know what the Bible says about the relationship between the two. (2 Kings 20:11)
The Earth doesn't move.(1 Chronicles 16:30, Job 38:4-6, Psalms 93:1, 96:10...and a lot of other places where it mentions that the Earth is set on foundations)
People think in their heart (Esther 6:6, Isaiah 10:7)
Ostriches are apparently entirely inattentive parents (Job 39:13-16)
The Sun moves around the Earth (Psalms 19:4-6)
Snails melt (Psalms 58:8)
The Earth has four corners (Isaiah 11:12, Ezekial 7:2)
Lots of fantastical creatures used to exist including satyrs, cockatrices, fiery flying serpents, etc (Isaiah)
The Earth is definitively flat (Daniel 4:10-11, 20)
The stars are tiny objects that can fall out of the sky and be stomped upon (Daniel 8:10)
