God is all knowing. So then why does it repeatedly say "And God saw that it was good". wouldn't He KNOW before He even did it that it was going to be good?
And if God is all powerful then why did He need to rest? rest implies that He grew tired and weak. But if He is all powerful He shouldn't need to rest.
And why does God ask Adam "Where are you?" when He goes walking through the garden after Adam ate the fruit. ...What a silly game for an all knowing God to play with His creation. I mean, He already KNEW where Adam was ...right? And then He asks "Who told you were naked?" ...etc. again. ...i don't understand why God would ask such a question.
And i won't even ask why it says "us" and "Gods" and such. I've already heard the answers to that ...but why was God afraid of us knowing good from evil and living forever? (to be like Him)
So is Genesis to be taken figuratively or literally?

then why does the bible say "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever"?
