"God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good. Evening came, and morning followed - the sixth day."I don't see a problem with acknowledging that the universe is vast and ancient. We've known that for millennia. Turns out, it's a whole lot bigger and older than we thought: and that's another topic.
"Of old you laid the earth's foundations; the heavens are the work of your hands.
"They perish, but you remain; they all wear out like a garment; Like clothing you change them and they are changed,
"but you are the same, your years have no end."
"4 Indeed, before you the whole universe is as a grain from a balance, or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth.
"But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things; and you overlook the sins of men that they may repent.
"For you love all things that are and loathe nothing that you have made; for what you hated, you would not have fashioned.
"And how could a thing remain, unless you willed it; or be preserved, had it not been called forth by you? "
