And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. ( Genesis 1:20-23 )
The biological definition of life and what the Bible describes as living are not the same thing. This is important to know as we see how the process of creation unfolded. Biology is the foundation of secular humanism.
