I repeated what scripture says, do you want to scalp me for quoting scripture? It was void, and I do not know what God meant by that so take my scalp because I honestly do not know and I don't think repeating scripture is such an offense as you are making it. I made a claim about what scripture says, I made absolutely no claim that I was there to look at this void that scripture says was there. I wasn't there.
In that verse, "void" likely means without features and without creatures... perhaps like the inside of a clean empty glass bowl.
Let's look at the first couple of verses (from the NIV)
1. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
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.
Notice that the words, "God created" precede "the heavens and the earth" which in turn precede "formless and empty ('void'). The previously-created earth was formless and empty. At that point God had done nothing else with it, so it was "formless", and He had not created any living things, so it was "empty".
Do you see this differently?
