    1) "In the beginning" means in the beginning. This is clear. So God created the heaven/earth having no form/void (empty) covered with water and dark in the beginning. He could have spoke everything into existance in a word but he choose to start with a canvas (a process). (Why He choose a "process" is open for discussion). But He choose a process that only took 6 literal days!
