Gods Creation and the Bible

Psalm 104 dwells on the wonders of the creators work. The Psalm begins with the creation of the world,the stages of its formation of its landscapes and the seas. It goes on to describe the water sources on land which provide for animal and plant life and rearing of wild animals and birds. The psalm then considers the course of night and day which influences mans labor on the land,the earths renewal and mans seafaring endevours on the oceans and the seas.

The psalms description of the stages in the earths formation coincides,broadly speaking, with the creation account in Genesis chapter 1 and is amazingly similar to the findings of geological research. It tells of the stages in the earths formation according to its geological and tectonic order: the raising and lowering of continents,land folding,rifts and faults and volcanic eruptions along the faults.
