notice the sequence<quoted text>
Day 1: Sky, Earth, light
Day 2: Water, both in ocean basins and above the sky(!)
Day 3: Plants
Day 4: Sun, Moon, stars
Day 5: "every living creature that moveth"
Day 6: Humans (apparently both sexes at the same time)
Note that on Day 3, God was to have created plants. Where did God place them? Floating in space?
Day 4 was Sun/Moon/Stars.
Of course this was Genesis ONE. Genesis TWO has a completely different order of Creation.
1:Genesis1...In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.(matter)
2:Genesis2...Now the earth was formless.(un-condensed matter)
3Genesis3... And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.(star formation from condensed matter)
5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.( the earth had form when the sun began to produce light(day and night...the rotation of the earth.
5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.( the earth had no water yet...)
6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." ( water existed on the earth)
Then plants(as you point out)...developed in the water ocean plant life...seaweed etc.(the earth was totally covered with water at one time)
Then dry land.
the sequence basically follows what science teaches today.
