Genesis 1:1-19

1
In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth,

2
there was no formless wasteland, and no darkness that covered the abyss, and no mighty wind swept over the waters.

3
Then God said, “Let there be a vacuum fluctuation that causes a singularity which is filled homogeneously and isotropically with an incredibly high energy density, huge temperatures and pressures, and very rapidly expands and cools,” and there was a vacuum fluctuation that caused a singularity filled homogeneously and isotropically with an incredibly high energy density, huge temperatures and pressures, and that very rapidly expanded and cooled.

4
God saw how good the Big Bang was. God then separated matter from antimatter using baryogenesis.

5
God called the light “photons,” and the darkness he called “space.” Thus Big Bang nucleosynthesis came, and cosmic microwave background radiation followed–the first 379,000 years.

6
Then God said, “Let there be gravitational attraction of nearby matter among the slightly denser regions of the nearly uniformly distributed matter, thus letting them grow denser.” And so it happened:

7
God formed the gas clouds, stars, galaxies, and the other astronomical structures observable today.

8
God called the gas clouds, stars, galaxies, and other astronomical structures “the universe.” Reionization came, and formation of stars, galaxies, groups, clusters, and superclusters followed–the first 100 million years.

9
Then God said, “Let gravitional attraction allow the retention of an atmosphere that includes water, and let temperatures plummet, so that the crust of the planet may accumulate on a solid surface.” And so it happened: the planet underwent a period of heavy asteroidal bombardment, steam escaped from the crust while more gases were released by volcanoes, additional water was imported by bolide collisions, clouds formed and rain appeared.

10
God called the dry land “the earth,” and the basin of the water he called “the oceans.” God saw how good it was.

11
Then God said, “Let the earth bring an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and a non-photosynthetic eukaryotic organism, creating a lineage that eventually led to photosythesizing eukaryotic organisms in marine and freshwater environments, which will eventually evolve into larger multicellular photosynthetic organism which will be the ancestors of land plants: every kind of plant that bears seed and every kind of fruit tree on earth that bears fruit with its seed in it.” And so it happened:

12
the earth brought forth every kind of plant that bears seed and every kind of fruit tree on earth that bears fruit with its seed in it. God saw how good it was.

13
The Paleozoic came, and the Mesozoic followed–the next 14,935,000,000 years.
