Time exists, apparently I'm stumped because I don't understand what you are asking??
You use the NIV, if I remember correctly, so where is the vault, the translation of the Hebrew "raqia," or bowl, firmament, or stereoma?
Still not understanding what you are asking? The expanse (or raqia) was created on the 2nd day and I would suppose it pertains to the universe.
Shoot, you're right, it is the second day.
In my defense, there are no "lights in the firmament." Still, I did screw up.The appropriate question for day four is: how were there three days without a sun?
