But due to relativity light experiences its entire existence from emission to absorbtion in an instant. And so God experiences the universe in an instant.

Or something.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Different words are used for different meanings; likewise, same words are used for different meanings. It depends on the context.

Reading through those verses I don't see a single issue (granted, I glanced at them).

Within the story of Moses, did God blind him with light? Yes. But, there isn't any semantics here; trying to hide behind mental gymnastics or symbolism.

That's a long list of verses, and I really don't want to break them down to the Greek and Hebrew, so, if you would be so kind, give me a few verses that are the most concerning to you and your claims, and I will try my best to interpret them without double speak or BS.
