God speaks again with a purpose and a firmament or expanse appears which divides waters.
What is an expanse? Something which is pulled apart and divided could be classified as could what we call the sky or the heavens above. Why did God separate the waters into two places. I can see where God did this for our protection as water vapor is well suited for us to live in as it serves as a protection against many forces which could be detrimental, ie; sunlight, radiation, heat, etc. And by separating the waters it provided a space or expanse for us to live in.
An interesting tidbit about water is that it can exist in three forms but still be water-H2O. Steam is the gas form, water the liquid form and ice the solid form. And when Ice is melting, it exists in three forms simultaneously. Sort of like we see God, existing in different forms at the same time.
Scientifically, when the waters are separated this would equate to the time when the Troposphere is separated and the cloud layers begin to form into the Stratosphere, Mesosphere and Ionosphere.
