“And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
(Genesis 1, 6)

“In the beginning there was nothingness and God but waved his hand

And from the endless void there sprang the beauty of the land

And high above the canyon walls the diamond stars were new

And breezes blew from nothingness and herbs and grasses grew

And silent creatures roamed the Earth and multiplied their kind

And man was but a molecule that God had left behind.”

  • Genesis (In the Beginning) by Don McLean
