You also have to keep in mind the book of Genesis was written during the eighteenth dynasty of ancient Egypt. It never says that the author was told by God to write that specific version of the origin of creation so I doubt that they have the same scientific understanding we do now. Even if God showed this particular person the secrets of how the universe formed do you really think they would be able to properly describe what they saw/were told? All of this is a moot point anyway once you consider that it is the creation story for ancient Hebrew mythology. The Bible isn't a scientific textbook, it's a collection of books telling the story of the people God has worked through throughout history so it can't really held accountable for it's scientific accuracy anyway.
