Understanding the Bible book of 'Genesis' Part 1 In The Beginning

Gen. 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth".
Our first view of the earth is of a planet, empty and covered with water where even light did not penetrate. The initial act of creation prior to the process mentioned in the rest of the chapter provided the raw materials for the acts of creation that were to follow. Genesis does not provide us with a means of dating the point at which creation occurred and so does not contradict scientific findings regarding the age of the earth.
