The Lord said to me, “Go down to the potter’s house, where I will give you my message.” So I went there and saw the potter working at his wheel. Whenever a piece of pottery turned out imperfect, he would take the clay and make it into something else.(Jeremiah 18:1-4) Good News Translation
We have to deduce a physical process by which a solid ball of stratified sediment, the Earth at the end of the second day, is formed into a hollow sphere with a hydrological system by the end of the third day.

See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. (Colossians 2:8) RSV
First cause isn’t the same as the Big Bang. The Big Bang, or more accurately we should say nucleosynthesis, is an effect, not a cause. Popular Science (SciPop) promotes speculation about a possible first cause.

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.(John 4:24) ESV
God is a spirit doesn’t mean that God is mystical and undefined, it means His physical nature is that of a vapor. However, God is more than just a Spirit so it’s accurate to say that God has a Spirit.

A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.(Psalms 103:1) KJV
Complicated deduction is an exercise in mental agility, but sometimes things fall in your lap. We have an explicit statement that the human soul is a gravity node. How so? God has put eternity, a singularity, in our hearts.

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.(Psalms 42:7) ESV
“Deep calls to deep” may be flowery poetic language intended to teach us something deep and spiritual. However we’re going to use it as the description of a hydrological cycle. It’s an application of Hypothesis 22.

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.(Genesis 7:11) ESV
The deep and the great deep are both translated from the same Hebrew word, tehom. The difference signifies a transition from the deep where Earth was created to when the great deep is in the interior of the Earth.

I know a certain Christian man who fourteen years ago was snatched up to the highest heaven (I do not know whether this actually happened or whether he had a vision—only God knows). I repeat, I know that this man was snatched to Paradise (again, I do not know whether this actually happened or whether it was a vision—only God knows), and there he heard things which cannot be put into words, things that human lips may not speak.(2 Corinthians 12:2-4) Good News Translation
The third heaven is the dome or firmament, which is a sea of glass. It’s a rigid crystalline sphere on the edge of space which formed in response to the creation of gravity on the second day.

Every good gift and every perfect present comes from heaven; it comes down from God, the Creator of the heavenly lights, who does not change or cause darkness by turning.(James 1:17) Good News Translation
The phrase “the father of lights,” is sweet and poetic. It’s spiritually accurate in identifying two roles of God the Father. It’s also accurate physics.

Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see; for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.”(Luke 10:23-24) NKJV
“Biblical literalists” are usually indignant and defend the mainstream science paradigm (SciPop) when shown that they don’t have an inkling of the true extent to which the Bible may be taken literally.

Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?(Job 11:7-8) KJV
Can we by searching find out God? The clear implication is that no, we can’t, but there’s something important to remember whenever we contemplate passages from the book of Job: Who’s speaking?
