At the moment I'm reading an learning a lot about something they call a "pre-adamitic" civilization, which was destroyed as it was Lucifer who was more or less the head of this pre-adamitic civilization.
Genesis 1: In the beginning Jah created the heavens and the earth, and the earth became void and darkness was on the flood. That is how the first lines ought to go. You can read in IsaJah that Jah has not created the earth empty and void. And there is more. So the age of the earth can be much older then we expect it when we would reason that Genesis 1:1 and 2 are about the same times.
