the bible tells that story in terms of time - onething after another. First there was darkness. Then there was light.
Your people remember it differently. They see the darkness as a tunnel that they crawled through to reach the light. A vertical tunnel. The light was another place far above.
This means nothing to you does it?
In any case the tell the story as a jjourney. A hard and terrible journey. The place where they started from was the first world.
Where the darkness was. Where it still is.
Understand me. Whatever lived there then lives there still, though your kind abandoned this place half a million years ago. There are forests of black oaks, a hundred feet tall, standing invisible in the dark. There are creatures... Predators... That have not eaten in geological ages.
You have forgotten the voiceless, but they have not forgotten you, They want you to come home. Want the feel of your worship but while the darkness is a home for them, for you it is only a womb.
