    The First heaven and earth was perfect. This was the age and time of pangia, dinosaurs and yes, prehistoric man walked the earth. However no one can ever claim to know what kind of soul or breath life existed within them. This is a known fact. Verse 2. Something catastrophic had happened. War in the Heavenlys and Lucifur is kicked out ruining the universe and earth. Second heaven and earth is us.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? He who has clean hands and a pure heart. Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. For his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in the law of the Lord he does meditate day and night. The ungodly are not so, but are as the chaff which the wind drives away.
