So in reading the "Account of Creation" notice the word "account" I have stumbled on some interesting things that come in to question. Most believe Adam and Eve were the first people created meaning just the two of them right? Wrong. On the 6th day god created "people" in his own image. Male and female. Genesis 1:27 but then in Genesis 2 he created adam and eve? Also, it says god created seeds and so forth on the third day yet in Genesis 2 there are no plants as it had not rained and apparently created Adam that same day? I am confused.Answer Question

There 's a difference between literal interpretation and a literalist interpretation. Literal takes every word that is written and take into today's standards. when in reality you have to put yourself back 2000 or so years to understand the meaning of many of the words or analogies. Think of it this way. Say in 2000 years future generations find a book of ours where it said it's raining cats and dogs. Do they take it literally? or figuratively? There are places in the Bible where it's very clear what the writer is saying. For instance, When Christ has to explain himself again because his followers don't quite get it they think he's talking in an analogy. He will say Amen Amen I say to you and rephrases. In other words hey I didn't stutter let me try this again for your simple minds.

Sorry I just thought of this with the cats and dogs. If the future generation was to read the whole passage or maybe the book then they would understand the meaning of that analogy. Where if they just took phrases out, the interpretation would be way out in left field.
