The Way It Was by Kelly L. Segraves

Some Atmosphere

God now separates the waters to waters above the earth and waters on the earth itself. He creates an expanse between, a firmament which He calls heaven, and in doing so He created an atmosphere. Water vapor in the upper atmosphere created a canopy of water, filtering out the light from the light source, crating the conditions necessary for life on this planet. We do not find life on the other planets because they do not have an atmosphere capable of supporting life. They have no liquid water which is essential for life.

Now earth conditions are such that God began to create life on the third day. "And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas; and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit trees yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day." (Genesis 1:9-13) God gathered all the water on the earth in one place and let dry land appear. Out of the earth He called up plants and grass and herb yielding seed, fruit trees yielding fruit, all to reproduce after their respective kinds. The earth now has vegetation springing up out of the dry land. So God is responsible for the origin of life.
