All I am saying is that the account was written as if one is standing on the Earth watching it happen.
Except that it doesn't. It just gives a general omniscience account of things. If you can show me a single instance of a line which demonstrates that this is given as a POV, I'll agree with you.
In the beginning, God created the heaven's and the earth.
heaven and the earth. Singular.
הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם is the word. it is plural. Shamayim.
-im- denotes plurality.
I'm sorry, but could you back up that all instances in the Hebrew language where "im" is used denotes plurality? And would it being plural even be relevant? The heavens just would relate to a space, not to its contents. The Sun is clearly created on the fourth day.
and I am not going to go on.
I have given you more than enough evidence. It is quite clear that you will refuse what has been shown to you.
So you address a single point and then when you simply decide to lob some accusations at me. Nice job.
You don't have a good argument against my basic premise: The Bible is not a source of scientific information.
You only wish to cause strife and discord.
See, baseless accusation! I'm not here to cause strife and discord, I'm here to show people that the Bible is not a source of scientific information.
