1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.—-the face of the water is flat –in this instance right? water lays flat —no matter where you pour water -when it is still its flat — The Lord begins creation with the words about separating the waters -from the waters –what is that all about? –6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.—-wikipedia –explains the biblical version as a flat earth as well —Firmament
