But the words do affirm a beginning of the universe, and by Gods word, as in both 0. and N.T. (see Ps. xxxiii. 6-9, and Heb. xi. 3). This was everything to accomplish His design, and His design was to create the heavens and the earth, where there had been nothing. Whatever Atheists or Pantheists feign, science at length confesses there was a beginning- so that created stands here in its proper and fullest sense, as the context requires. There was a beginning, says geology, to man- and farther back, to mammals, to birds, and to reptiles, to fishes, and all the lower animals, and to plants- a beginning to life: a beginning, it says also, to mountain ranges and valleys, to lands and seas, to rocks. Hence science takes another step back, and admits or claims a beginning to the earth, a beginning to all planets and suns, and a beginning to the universe. Science and the record in Genesis are thus one. This is not reconciliation- it is accordance. So writes Dr. J. D. Dana, the eminent American Professor, in the 0. and N. Test. Student of July, 1890.

But even as to the earth, which was to be a scene of change, we are expressly told by an authority no less inspired, and therefore of equal authority with Moses, that such disorder was not the original state. For thus saith Jehovah that created the heavens- he is God- that formed the earth and made it- he established it, he created it not a waste, he formed it to be inhabited (Isa. xlv. 18). The Kevised V. is purposely cited, as confessedly the more correct reflection of the prophet. Here is therefore the surest warrant to separate ver. 2 from ver....
