    The Skeptic's Annotated Bible uses Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 44:24 in reference to God the Father creating the heavens and earth by himself. They use John 1:6-10 in reference for Jesus having done it, and 1 Corinthians 8:6 for both of them having done it. They are all correct. Without Jehovah, the Father, neither Christ nor the heavens and earth would exist. The heavens and earth were created by Jehovah through Christ Jesus as master worker. (Proverbs 8:22; 8:30-31 / Colossians 1:15, 16)

    No one created the heavens and Earth. They were created by the natural forces that create everything. No need for proverbs, no need for Colossians, no need for Corinthians. Just go outside on a clear night and soak in our amazing universe. Would not hurt to give some thanks to the earth itself for everything it gives you.

    I am familiar with the bible and am saying this is myth for passing on the beliefs of those who follow that belief. But that is my opinion from scriptural readings.

    What scriptures have you read specifically by book, chapter and verse, in the Bible that would have lead you to that conclusion?

    God created through Jesus. In other words, God used Jesus as tool in creating things.

    According to the Bible, Elohim created the heavens and the earth.

    There are actually three words in Elohim: 'el' (god) 'ha' (the) 'im' (sea/expanse) or god (of) the expanse. Elohim has an image and a likeness, and creates (as) both male and female. The image relates to straight lines, the likeness relates to curves (masc./fem.) and all creation occurs through a shared will between these two.

    That's an easy thing to answer.

    In the world of Make-Believe, the heavens and earth were created by the mental puppet called God, who in turn is created and controlled by very imaginative minds.

    I say...the creation has the mark of a singular frame of mind

    not two Persons......just One
