Genesis is not saying that God created time, space and matter in verse 1.
It just makes a statement that this happens and it was way back when, and that God created the heaven and earth, not by creating matter, but by
prevailing on the ocean to divide its water to create a dome above the earth, thus making an expanse of air between the upper dome, and the earth
below, which was now exposed, due to the decrease in ocean volume by the amount of water used in making the dome.
The seven thing is totally arbitrary. He then comes up with this ridiculous argument of there being seven words in the English translation of verse
one. That is so laughable. This is the sort of thing only KJV only people would think was legitimate.
The main point of the video seems to be that these odd coincidences in how the verse is spelled, is somehow evidence of magic. Yeah, and the priest
was using some form of magic when he wrote it, to cast some sort of spell, and so what? That means God did it? That is stupid in the extreme.

Quit 40 seconds in, I'm well aware some people twist genesis 1:1 to sound like it had foresight of scientific knowledge. You have to completely twist
the meaning to get the Time, Space, and Matter thing/
I'm assuming he'll twist the other parts too, to suit his interpretation.
I do know 7 and 40 are used a lot in the bible though. They're just Motif numbers, like a lot of unreal stories had in the past. Maybe a few others,
I haven't researched the whole number balance in there.
It as all about the Holy Number 7, the number 7 is everywhere, watch till the end

It is an amazing video. Also consider this: John 1 states that the Word is Christ and the Word (wave) created all reality. Light is both a particle
and wave. All particles have associated waves that carry matter into form. The Son of God is this wave of creation. Light is the prima material
(Father). That only leaves one other person of the trinity. The Holy Spirit is consciousness. Now view God as He is to us. We see God from
particle, wave and consciousness. He is one person, yet three to us. We are equally one person, yet a projection of the three persons of God.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Men are blind to God from pride. In the end, this darkness will not overcome the light.
How does an atheist deny these truths?
1 Colossians 1:
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together.
Why does God call us His image? An image is an artificial reflection of what it represents. We are 'inside' the image created by God. We are the
image of God as stated earlier, as projected by the Trinity.
1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
PPSimmons has had his ass reamed on youtube plenty of times for his 'knowledge' and other nonsense. It's no wonder his comments section is
blocked. He twists words and scientific terms to suit his needs.
The number 7 is also prevalent in Hinduism, which I'm pretty sure predates the 3 monotheistic religions of Abraham.
