God did not create humans inside a nearly-windowless, non-rotating space ship far out in interstellar space. He created us on a completed living planet. This is why a God-given normal human concern is for how the stable natural physical world came to be. No matter what century or culture in which we are born, we are ever centrally concerned for the part of our physical cosmos that we immediately see naturally supports life.
So, on the one hand, despite literary-centrists such as John Walton, the ancient Hebrew prophets were not some kind of hermits with respect to physical and terrestrial cosmology; And, on the other hand, despite 'science'-centrists, such as Hugh Ross and John Lennox, Genesis 1 is not directly concerned for, much less in support of, the modern secularist-atheist, long-ages cosmological frame of reference.
Carl Sagan, in his famed TV show, Cosmos, maintained a pretense of objectivity by way of trivial locations in interstellar space, and of being inside a space ship, and of watching the cosmos supposedly evolve over eons. But humans' proper main frame of reference is that from a completed living planet, not of any actual or supposed pre-Earth cosmos.
Genesis 1---every bit of it---is universally accessible to the normal human being because of how it begins and proceeds. It tells of how our planet functions to support life, and it does this by telling us of how God formed and filled our planet. In other words, the true Prime Cosmology begins and proceeds exactly how any normal child could best wish:
By total appearances, the account addresses the most ordinary universal human concern, and addresses it in the universally ordinary, terra-prime way.
