Now let me share that I am a theologian and the bible references at the end never clicked and made much real sense until I read this. But as a scientist it all makes sense and I really do think we make a “physical” pole shift on a regular cycle..
Check it out...
I'm actually a pastor. They don't make much sense in some areas but in other areas especially considering the "without form and void" reference it's pretty accurate. Those hebrews words translated "form and void" in Gen verse 2 can mean in essence devastated and ruined. The same terminology is used in Jeremiah 4:23 to describe a devastated earth.
So yeah, I think the bible is describing some type of cataclysms in Genesis 1:1... even if not necessarily a crustal displacement... and then how God brings it back for a "recreation" as well.
