The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. (NASB)
And now, this:
Water, which is essential to life on Earth, has been found in a new star according to this paper. The European Space Agency’s Herschel space observatory has discovered water vapor in a gas and dust cloud that is on the verge of collapsing into a new star in the constellation of Taurus known as Lynds 1544 . There’s enough water vapor to fill Earth’s oceans more than 2000 times over. In comparison, all the water on Earth is around 326,000,000,000,000,000,000 gallons.
(No, I don’t think Genesis 1 has anything in reality to do with science, but it was sure awesome to see this story and theologize it just a bit)
