You can look yourself squarely in the eye in a mirror and observe infinity. You can take a picture of it. Just because we can't necessarily perceive it doesn't mean it isn't a reality.

As perfect an illustration of what Daniel Dennett refers to as a "deepity" as one could ever hope to find. Significant sounding blabber that means absolutely nothing upon even cursory examination. Well done.

So yeah, the Bible actually describes the Earth through its evolution or change quite well in my opinion.

Interesting...

Perhaps you can direct me to the chapters discussing the formation of the Earth from collection of it's protoplanetary disk and progression to a molten gas blob to a geologically active planet? Does it cover continental drift and the super-continents as well?

Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.

And God said: ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.’

And God said: ‘Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear.’ And it was so.

And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called He Seas; and God saw that it was good.

That describes everything from the formation of matter, to the collection of matter, to the formation of one ocean then land them the formation of separate seas.

Hopi creation story:

Creation myth from Chinese mythology:

http://www.gly.uga.edu/railsback/CS/CSPG&NW.html

Upanishad creation myth:

http://www.gly.uga.edu/railsback/CS/CSSelf.html

Norse creation myth:

http://www.gly.uga.edu/railsback/CS/CSOdin&Ymir.html

There are, of course, multitudes and multitudes others. Why is yours so special? Favoritism? The one you happen to believe in?

The two things every creation story has in common? They carry zero explanatory weight and are completely unfalsifiable. They're fun reads and are great testaments to human imagination, but anybody who takes them as being even remotely informative is being extremely foolish.
