            In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss. While a mighty wind swept over the waters. At the time when the LORD God made the earth and the heavens while as yet there was no field shrub on earth and no grass of the field had sprouted, for the LORD God had sent no rain upon the earth and there was no man to till the soil, but a stream was welling up out of the earth and was watering all the surface of the ground-the LORD God formed man out of the clay of the ground and blew into his nostrils and breath of life, and so man became a living being. Conflicting theories from the same reading describing the same event, so which one if any is really what happened so long ago?.
             Each of the Chapters has reasons to what really happened in the creation of the earth, but I believe the First Story of Creation sounds more realistic to me than the second story. Don't get me wrong, I think that both stories are very hard to believe in. There is just so much mystifying events that happened in such a short time I just cannot grasp that the world is 6 billion years old and is was created in just a matter of days.
             I believe more in the first story since it fits into a week and was started from nothing on what would be a Monday and finished on Saturday the end of the work week, and God had the final day Sunday to rest before he had to start the rest of the work in front of him. God in the first story started from nothing and created the world and all its resources in seven days. In the second story it seems as if the earth was just always there which there are known facts that the earth was not always there it is always evolving at a slow rate. The world had to be created from scratch as he does in the first story.
             The part in both stories I don't agree upon is how man was created. The second story says he was created from clay and God blew threw his nostrils and gave man life.
