2 creation stories?!


Posted by Wondering on Apr 18 2014 2:35PM

At school we have been told there are two creation stories whuch i disagree with. They define this by genesis 1 and 2 because if the order of creation (animals then humans and in genesis 2 humans then animals) could someone explain this and give me some clarity

One thing we have to remember is that in many parts of the Bible the events are not recorded in the same way that we in America would write down events. How we would write a story is that we would start at the beginning, and work our way chronologically to the end. How some stories in the bible were recorded is the writer(in this case Moses) would present an event, and then explain part of it in greater detail. Kind of like if you put a magnifying glass up to part of your hand. This seems to be the case with the first 2 chapters of the book of Genesis. It is about one story, just partly repeated with new details in the second chapter.
