God is not the Creator, claims academic - Telegraph
Dutch scholar claims that "bara" in the first sentence of the Bible does not mean create, but separate: thus no creatio ex nihilo. Instead, earth and many of its elements (waters, sea monsters) already existed. God created humans and animal life, but not the earth itself. If true, this would be interesting because it would remove, e.g., the seeming conflict with classical cosmology (cf. Aristotle) and other early, as well as possibly later doctrines.
