In reading the book Genesis it is hard to discern what to believe Since there are two stories of creation I do not know which one is correct or if either is correct because they differ in such great aspects To make them match you must bend the meaning of the words or look at the original translation In a way Genesis contradicts itself by doing this thus leaving it to the reader to decide which one is correct In the first story of creation God produces the heavens and the earth Then God said Let the land produce vegetation Gen 111 God creates the plants and animals on the third day and on the sixth day he creates man in an image of his likening If you say in Gen 111 God gave the land the ability to produce vegetation instead of saying instantaneously the land produced vegetation the two stories parallel each other better According to the second story of creation God creates man first The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living being Gen 27 to work the soil so the vegetation may grow In contradiction to the first story it says No shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth and no plant of the field had yet sprung up for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no man to work the ground Gen 25 God says I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it Gen 129 This quote could mean that man had the seeds for the plants from the earth and there were no plants before the first story might match up with the second In this way the bible makes it hard to believe
