Younce, Max D.[----], The Truth about Evolution, or Don’t Let Satan Make a Monkey Out of You

1.         Isaiah 14:12-14 implies tht before Lucifer sinned, he ruled Earth with his angels. He was beneath the clouds.
2.         Ezekiel 28:12-19 says that Satan had been in Eden as Lucifer, “the anointed that covereth”  before he sinned and before Adam was created.
3.         Ezekiel 28:13-19 says that God would bring Satan to ashes upon Earth.
4.         Isaiah 14:17 says that Lucifer’s fall and change into Satan “made the world as a wilderness.”
5.         Isaiah 45:18 implies that Earth was originally created good before Lucifer’s fall.
6.         Genesis 1:2’s “without form and void” refers to judgment in Isaiah 34:11; 45:18 and Jeremiah 4:23.
7.         Genesis 9:1’s “replenish” is also found in Genesis 1:28. The inspired KJV writers may have deliberately made this distinction.
8.         Genesis’ 1:1’s “bara” means “create out of nothing.” It appears in 1:1for the original substance, 1:21 fo birds and 1:24-25 for man. “Made” refers to the use of pre-existing material.
9.         Genesis 1:3-31 refer to sentient mankind and replenishing of Earth after Lucifer’s fall and war in heaven.
10.      Ephesians 2:2 teaches that Satan has been the “prince and power of the air” since his fall. That is why day 2 of creation was not called “good.”
Article, Thomistic Evolution, Roman Catholic 

Church Fathers Basil of Caesarea (d379), Ambrose, Bishop of Milan (d397) and [?John of Damascus, d749] Damascene also teach that the universe was created instantaneously or before time. 

Origen (d254) and Clement [?of Alexandria? [d215] taught that time did not exist until after creation; creation is the source of time; the 6 days are not literal in time.

Augustine (d430) did not interpret the 6 days as literal.
