The Days in Genesis
Genesis 1:5
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day...

Here's a citation for you:

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Gen. 1:1)

Yipes! We can't cite God as an authority, can we, because all those human names and titles mean nothing compared to him.

"Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD's thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is." (Deut. 10:14)

Oh dear! More from God. Gee, we can't admit that God has his facts right. Citing God doesn't count, because if it does, surely humans have to admit they're wrong.

"For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place." (1 Chron. 16:26-27)

Heaven forbid that we might read what the Lord has to say on the subject of creation. Humans must argue with him and pretend they're right.

"Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee." (Neh. 9:6)

Well I never! I guess the Creator shouldn't be cited. It rather makes all those puny humans with their published nonsense look silly.

"The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.
He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.
By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens..." (Job 26:11)

There are some citations for you! Straight from the horse's mouth.

So, if we're going to go with the most reliable source, that would be God. And we would have to conclude that God created the heavens and the earth.

How's that for facts? You don't like them, do you?
