How is adam and eve the first humans? It sais on the sixth day man was created in gen ch 1 but in ch 2 it then sais adam and eve were.

(Gen ch 1) 26 Then God said, ?Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.?

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, ?Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.?

29 Then God said, ?I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground?everything that has the breath of life in it?I give every green plant for food.? And it was so.

31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning?the sixth day. (Gen ch 2)
2 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Omg, people, there's a reason why it's not meant to be taken seriously! It was written by men who had no idea how anything started or became and so they added the idea of an all powerful god to their historical documents. It's not meant to be taken seriously.

Actually it is true, and God is real. I'm sorry you were misinformed.

Have you read the chapter in question? The asker left out a chunk of verses
Report as
It's true but if u don't believe it then dont!
Report as
Yes, but those verses have absolutely nothing to do with man and how man was created. They do nothing at all to explain the contradiction. But you seem to know a bit. Why don't YOU read the verses and explain it a bit?
Report as
It's not true. And I'm not believing it.

Explain which part exactly?
Report as
I don't know. I'm sure I'm not asking you to explain the question and how the guy is wrong or something. Yeah, I'm definitely not sure. And I'm sure I'm not asking you to take the rest of those verses and show how they change the contradiction in the Bible. Oh no, I can't be asking about that.

I don't tend to wear sarcasm. I just use it for a little of "Duh, that would be obvious!"

How can God die. Any way the chapter can change from 1 to 6th or 2nd to 4th but it is true that ADAM was first person to be created by God almighty and EVE was the second person created by GOD.

It's called religious mythology.
It's pounding the square peg of religion,
into the round hole of reality.

It will never make sense.

There is no contradiction between Genesis 1 and 2. Genesis 1 is a detailed explanation of the six days of creation, day by day. Genesis two is a recap and a more detailed explanation of the sixth day, the day that Adam and Eve were made. The recap is stated in Gen. 2:4, "This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made earth and heaven." Then, Moses goes on to detail the creation of Adam and Eve as is seen in verses 7 thru 24 of Gen. 2. Proof that it is not a creative account is found in the fact that animals aren't even mentioned until after the creation of Adam. Why? Probably because their purpose was designated by Adam. They didn't need to be mentioned until after Adam was created.

You need to read "Who wrote the Bible" which I read for my biblical history class in college. The reason is that they were 2 stories and a redactor put them together to make one. The reason is that people were familiar with both stories and the writer couldn't just ignore one over the other because that would cause a riot. If you continue to read carefully, you will notice that ALL of genesis is like this. This also explains why there are two stories of Noah's ark. There are plenty of books on this subject. Keep reading, ask questions, and I guarantee you that you will discover the truth on your own.
