For as the churning of milk produces butter, And wringing the nose produces blood, So the forcing of wrath produces strife.(Proverbs 30:33) NKJV
Understanding cause and effect, logic and reason, is critical in successfully deducing how the Bible can account for all of the physical evidence and empirical observations of the universe.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?(Jeremiah 17:9) KJV
One aspect of the soul is the heart which is, among other things, our drive and motivation. Another aspect of the soul is the mind which is our ability to reason. Physically the heart is a pump that drives blood, the mind is a brain.

And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.(John 1:5) NKJV
It got dark at the end of the first day. This is another way in which we can see how God the Son has been manifested as three distinct identities.

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. (1 Peter 2:1-3) KJV
If a baby needs milk to survive before it can tolerate solid food, has this been patterned after the processes which took place on the first and second days of the creation of the universe?

A Copy and a Shadow
Every high priest is appointed to present offerings and animal sacrifices to God, and so our High Priest must also have something to offer. If he were on earth, he would not be a priest at all, since there are priests who offer the gifts required by the Jewish Law. The work they do as priests is really only a copy and a shadow of what is in heaven. It is the same as it was with Moses. When he was about to build the Sacred Tent, God told him, “Be sure to make everything according to the pattern you were shown on the mountain.”(Hebrews 8:3-5) Good News Translation
Hydrogen atoms (H+) are necessary for nucleosynthesis, but also for life. If we said that all metabolism is based on a process that produces a supply of H+ it wouldn’t be an exaggeration.

Copy the Heavenly:Water into Wine
Those things, which are copies of the heavenly originals, had to be purified in that way. But the heavenly things themselves require much better sacrifices.(Hebrews 9:23) Good News Translation
Pattern and process repeat themselves in creation. We’re told that things on Earth are copied from things in the heavens. Can we use this truth to understand how Jesus turned water into wine?

Truth is Light, Darkness is Evil
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.(Genesis 1:2) ESV
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.(Matthew 27:45) ESV
We make a connection between the darkness in Genesis 1:2 and the darkness that fell upon the world while Jesus hung on the cross. This is the sacrifice which had to be made to pay the price of our redemption, the propitiation.

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned –(Romans 5:12) NKJV
We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) have incorporated evolution INTO creation. You don’t need to argue creation vs. evolution any more.
