Genesis 1:6-8, The Second Day

Since all of creation was only water, God said, "Let there be a dome in the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." And with that curious choice of words, God made the dome - or firmament - and separated the waters below the dome from the waters above the dome. The dome looked like an upside down salad bowl, only bigger. God called the dome "Sky." He didn't say "Heaven." He said "Sky."

God pissed away the rest of the day. There was evening and there was morning. That was the second day. Dome day.
