It is known that life can evolve with other energy sources than sunlight, like around deep ocean vents. But the Genesis story talks of trees and seeds which certainly require sunlight.

Is this a mistake in the Creation story? And if it is a product of revelation from god, is the mistake deliberate, so that we should not take scripture literally? That is, is god telling us that scripture can be incorrect?

And besides all that, the fossil record suggests that all higher forms of life emerged in a single 5 million year day. That is, evolution was not gradual as the Genesis story implies, or as Darwin assumed.
