Planets and stars are formed through fusion caused by extreme gravitational pressure. You had a pretty good under standing in the comment you left in your last question. You can actually watch the formation of distant planets with powerful telescopes. and get a sense of what a very young universe looked like because the light from these systems is only just now reaching the earth. And is millions of billions of years old. It took that long to reach us here on earth so it like a glimpse into the past.
Scientists believe that about one hundred billion years ago the Earth, the Sun, and all the planets of the Solar System were nothing but a cloud of cold dust particles swirling through empty space. Gradually, these particles were attracted to each other and came together to form a huge spinning disk. As it spun, the disk separated into rings and the furious motion made the particles white-hot. The center of the disk became the sun, and the particles in the outer rings turned into large fiery balls of gas and molten-liquid that cooled and condensed to take on solid form. Four or five billion years ago, they turned into the planets that we know today as Earth, Mars, Venus, and the outer planets.
For more information watch the opening theme song for the show "The Big Bang Theory"
It was formed by the matter that remained after our sun was formed. Objects coalesced to become larger and larger increasing its mass and attracting other objects until everything within the gravitational effect zone of Earth was joined together in what is now Earth. As it cooled gases became trapped and formed our atmosphere, ice bearing comets bombarded the Earth and gave us the water we have today. The rest of the story can be found in geologic history.
The Beginning 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (just like the Big Bang asteroid, then we move to the stage of the Earth before any living creature existed). 2 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.
There you go. That s how the World come to be. The Bible doesnt talk about the time between the making of the universe and the world because its not really important. Tho, if you wanna know how the Earth got in shape, well, just ask. Gby
