Genesis 2

So, on the 7th day God “rested”, but instead of resting he;

  • Made mist which watered all of the earth,
  • Gave Man life,
  • Created a garden,
  • Made the tree of Knowledge of good and evil,
  • Made 4 rivers,
  • Placed man in the garden,
  • Told man to eat form any tree except the tree of Knowledge of good and evil,
  • Gave man the name Adam,
  • Made one of every living creature in the garden,
  • Adam then named every creature,
  • God then put Adam into a great sleep to steal a rib used to make Woman,
  • Adam then named Woman….

All in one day of rest. To me this seems like a rather busy day.

In the Genesis 1 it described that mad was made in his image, However now in Genesis 2 he forms man out of dust of the ground.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Why would man need to be formed form dust if he was already created after the image of God?

After making the garden God tells man that every tree is there for man to maintain, However man cannot eat form the tree of Knowledge of good and evil or he shall die within the day.

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat;

But the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The next section that is hard to believe is that Adam named every creature on earth.

And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

The first question of this, why were the creatures of water not named? Second, If everything on earth has already been named, why is there no record of each creature. To this day we are still discovering new creatures and giving them names.

The last part, the creation of woman,

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs,  and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Until this point God has created every other animal out of “nothing” why is it God now has to take a rib form man to create a woman.


On the 7th day God rested by creating rain, a garden, 4 rivers, every creature on earth, having Adam name every creature, drugged Adam to steal a rib used to make woman.

Genesis 1

So Genesis 1 explains the 6 days that God created;

  • Earth (without form and void),
  • Light (in this case let us assume this was the Sun.  This being said, wouldn’t it say this was the sun?),
  • Day (we now decide that darkness is night and light is day),
  • Land( we now decide that instead of everything being earth only dry land is earth),
  • Grass(and herb yielding seed),
  • Trees(that yield fruit),
  • Moon ( 2 great lights, one to rule day and one to rule night),
  • Animals ( this is explained in multiple sections that repeat themselves, and are all of his(Gods) kind,
    • (Wales and every other creature of the sea),
    • (Fowl that fly above the earth))
  • Living Creatures (Cattle and creeping things),
  • Man(male and female in our image, after our likeness. We also give control of everything to man)

So first earth was created as everything with no form and empty. Then Light, which is changed to day, and the darkness becomes night. Earth is then decided to be the land that has been created separating the waters. Then grass and trees are made.

Instead of light we now have 2 great lights the sun and the moon.  It is said that the Sun and Moon rule over day (light) and night (darkness),

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

In this context it appears as at one point in time someone questioned what stars were so they had to amend the passage to include the stars. This is a good question as if the bible is the answer to all why are stars not described when creating light.

It is also described light is in heaver and shine upon the earth.

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

The first thing that pops into my mind when reading this statement is that heaven is the sun.

Then we get to animals,

And God said , Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creatures that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

This part has some logic, most creatures on earth are mostly made of water. However we now have fowl that can fly to heaven, this is the first major flaw I know will start a good debate. If fowl can fly to heaven how have we not discovered it yet. We now have planes and space ships that can fly far higher than any fowl on earth.

Finally we are told that the earth is ours and everything on earth has been given to us.

God took six days to make Earth, Light, Day, Land, Grass, Trees, The Sun, The Moon, All animals/creatures, and Man. We are also told to populate the earth and everything on it is ours.

Why Are There So Many Versions?

The first thing that comes to mind about the Bible that doesn’t make sense is the number of versions that exist.

Many people start with the argument of, “The Bible is Gods word”.  If this is the case why are there so many versions of the bible that have been written. If it truly is the word of God it should be no need to change it.
