Understanding cause and effect, logic and reason, is critical in successfully deducing how the Bible can account for all of the physical evidence and empirical observations of the universe.

Why did it get dark at the end of the 1st day? It wasn't absence of light, it was obstruction of light by the corruption which resulted from the appearance of light. It needed a new name: night.
We find that there are passages of scripture which, though appearing to be metaphorical, describe actual physical conditions or chemical reactions. These misunderstood passages are dismissed as flowery poetic language.If a baby needs milk to survive before it can tolerate solid food, has this been patterned after the processes which took place on the first and second days of the creation of the universe?
Hydrogen atoms, H+, are necessary for nucleosynthesis, but also for life. If we said that all metabolism is based on a process that produces a supply of H+ it wouldn't be an exaggeration.

We make a connection between the darkness in Genesis 1:2 and the darkness that fell upon the world while Jesus hung on the cross. This is the sacrifice which had to be made to pay the price of our redemption, the propitiation.
We (that's me and the Holy spirit) have incorporated evolution INTO creation. You don't need to argue creation vs. evolution any more.
