Heaven, as the firmament in Genesis 1:6-8, is interpreted by some as the sky, and it is also understood by some as spiritual Heaven, a spiritual firmament. The waters that Heaven divides that are above and below may also be interpreted as spiritual waters.

I JUST WANT TO KNOW , ABOUT CHAPTER 1 VERSE 8, IT SAYS , there was evening and there was morning, a second day. BUT THERE IS NO MORNING AND EVENING THE ANOTHER DAY , WHY? BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO BE THE DAY IS TWELVE HOURS, BUT TO DAY WE CALL A DAY WHEN IT IS 24HRS, MY OPINION IS WE BETTER CALL THERE WAS MORNING AND EVENING THE DAY ONE, THEN THERE WAS EVENING AND MORNING THE SECOND DAY ,WE WOULD HAVE COUNTING CLEARLY, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE.
IF YOU HAVE ANY GOOD ANSWER YOU MAY GIVE ME SUCH THAT I CAN BE IN GOOD POSITION.

As usual a nonsensical explanation of illogical facts told for credulous ignorant people.
Read well and see how many stupidity & contradictions there are.
