Plants spouted, grew to maturity, and produced seeds. However, the text clearly states that the (soulish) animals, including the wild animals (carnivores), cattle (herbivores) and "creeping things" (rodents? Then God created Adam, the first man (Genesis , 2:7).He placed the man into a special garden that He had planted (Genesis 2:8).Next, God had Adam give names to "all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air" (Genesis ).The process would have required Adam naming tens of thousands of species (minimum).The first, and foremost, assumption is that the genealogies of Genesis are complete, from father to son throughout the entire course of human existence.The second assumption is that the Genesis creation "days" were exactly 24-hours in length. Although Archbishop Ussher assumed the Genesis genealogies were complete, it is clear from the rest of the Bible that those genealogies were telescoped (some names were left out for the sake of brevity), which is common in biblical genealogies but rare in modern genealogies.More information and examples can be found in our article . The particulars are important, so let's look at what Genesis 1 says: Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit after their kind, with seed in them, on the earth"; and it was so.
In the Genesis 1 creation account, each "day" ends as "evening and morning 'n' day," where "n" is the day's number.Again, God was playing farmer by planting the garden and letting it grow (Genesis 2:9).Adam was placed into the garden "to work it and take care of it" (Genesis ).We don't know how long Adam worked the garden before God gave him another assignment.However, it wouldn't have been much "work" if Adam was there for less than 24 hours.
