Genesis is a name taken from the Greek, and signifies "the book of generation or production; " It is also referred as The Book of Beginnings. It is properly so called, as containing an account of the origin of all things. There is no other history so old. There is nothing in the most ancient book which exists that contradicts it; while many things recorded by the oldest heathen writers, or to be traced in the customs of different nations, confirm what is related in the book of Genesis. All our nuclear bombs would look like pale fireworks or weak firecrackers compare to that BIG ONE pyrotechnical EXTRAVAGANZA engineered by our creator GOD. !! And after all this time, you must still beware of flying debris !!! The Big Bang  ...As it really happened.   There are a lot of secular scientific theories, thesis and speculations about the origin of the universe. All of them address the chemical and nuclear process and reaction that supposedly triggered such a spectacular and unique celestial fireworks, but none of them give the answer to the fundamental question of whom or what put there for the ready all the necessary "ingredients" for this cosmic chemical soup. Well, the bible not only explains the process in very simple terms but most importantly reveals who the architect, designer, planner and ultimate builder is. So read on...... 

In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD (John:1 :1)
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was  formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Genesis 1:1 & 2

And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. Genesis 1.3.
Now God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night."
And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.  Genesis 1.4 & 5 .
And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water."  So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day. Genesis 1.6 thru  8
And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear."And it was so. God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.  Genesis 1.9 & 10
And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. Genesis 1.14 &15
God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1.16 thru 18 
And there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day. Genesis 1.19   And there are a lot more pages to this story . If you want to know more, get yourself a bible.
