My feeling about the problem in the discrepancy between science and Genesis is the word universe. My view genesis is talking about the earth only and if we look from this position there is not much discrepancy. Thinking from earth position science actually verify many points . Genesis does not say God made the universe , but "1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth " and from here all is related to the earth , do we believe the earth was covered with water ? How do you brig dry land forward ? By evaporation and by freezing water at the poles , and so on . the sun could have been in position but perhaps clouds were very heavy . The moon come later from a collision of earth and some other large object . Then evolution of animals proceeded and at the end come man . Adam and Eva is an allegory .
