    One should consider that light is a form of radiation and that because of evolution, or in spite of it, we can sense and interpret it to match our surroundings. With special equipment, we can now see infrared to further our senses when ordinary light may be missing or diminished. The Bible is not aware of other forms of radiation and only dwells on the light. Other forms of radiation probably caused countless numbers of mutations of which only a few were successful in advancing adaptations to different environments and changing environments. I see no conflict between science and the Bible in these matters. I am aware of 3 versions of creation in the Bible, the last by Peter, who stated, “For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago [KJV has the heavens were of old], and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God”. By his reasoning, the heavens existed long before the earth. The Bible does not dwell on the “how”, just the fact that God created everything. We distract ourselves from our Christian obligations when we turn these arguments into life engulfing agendas to convince others of a truth and to prove how strongly and correctly we believe it. It narrows the confines of our thinking, whereas discussion and debate stimulate the minds God gave us.

      thanks Lambert I agree! The Bible was never intended to give us all the answers instead as it claims itself to be “God Breathed” its intended to give life.
      the very essence of Life is that it provokes us to think for ourselves, to engage our intellect, much different from the often assumed blind obedience without any questions

      I’m guessing we’re related 🙂
