Something that has not been appreciated until recently is the fact that the Genesis 1 description of the sequence of events for the six creation days parallel beautifully with what science has discovered concerning the transformation of the earth. It is important to understand that Genesis 1 does not record many of the events that may be interesting to us, such as the origin of cellular life in the oceans. However, for the events that Genesis 1 does mention, then the sequence of these events correspond beautifully with the sequence of these events as discovered by science. 

The correspondence between the sequence in Genesis and what science has found is truly extraordinary.
