The reason our voices sound different to us is because when we talk, we hear our voices from our middle ear where as everyone else hears our voice from our outer ear. It affects how deep we hear our voices.

my issue with the seventh day not being over yet is that it means God is still resting and not actively engaged in shaping his creation. It doesn't say that He isn't involved.

Jota, you make the Bible so complicated.

"For God is not a God of confusion but of peace."-1 Corinthians 14:33

And that interpretation is not valid when held up against the Biblical text.
