I did a search in trying to find a pertinent set of information in Genesis 1-6 but found a link to your site and thought I would try it out. I think you do have some valid points that you do touch on, but I have come to the conclusion that there are 2 teachings that the bible propose (The Inner, And The Outer). In saying that, I have come across many individuals in my time who have for the most part have meant well but have greatly misinterpreted the main concept of what is being conveyed . I have not read all your quotes on Genesis but will do so to get a better handle on what is being said in your article.

Hey david, simply put, the content of the firmament is the genesis account itself, and as you know it has been reviewed to no end nor resolve... The genesis account which is held to be the words of God and the lone origin to the entire dispute, procaims A firmament 'MADE' created a divide or space between now two waters, above and under, the space or divide between the two was just then called 'heaven' with half or so of the waters on the planet now off of it the 'DRY' could appear and furthermore everything else chronologically in the account can occur... The firmament is the visible declaration of the creation account, not the universe... nor is there any recorded documentation to testify of anything 'prior' to this formless and void condition of the planet He called the dry earth. thereby rendering our history nonexistant... If you might take a little time to indeed view firmament-theresolve, you might be surprised what you could see although this is just a brief vision of what this reason of truth will reveal... take care,
