contradiction without the use of an outside medium (such as archaeology, fossil study). i just stumbled on this after reading the thread about adam and the sexual subliminal message. i was thinking about adam and eve and chronology, and a contradiction popped up in my head...so i picked up the bible and there it is.
gen 1:27 - god creates adam and eve, tells them to be fruitful.
gen 2:18 - now adam is alone? god saw it wasn't good for the man to continue by himself??
so then god creates eve out of adam's rib. (this is all so fundamental, am i on drugs or is this right?)
if god created the earth for man to subject it to himself, and to be fruitful and become many...if that was the purpose ...why would he create adam, and then say doh! forgot eve? this makes no sense.
he had to "realize" that it wasn't good for adam to be alone(that's what the bible says "it is not good for the man to *continue* by himself")....did he even create adam with a penis and a libido? or once he put adam to sleep, he slapped on the good penis in preparation for eve?
if he created man to subject physical creation unto himself, and for the propagation of the human race...how would he only realize later after adam dwelled the earth that eve needed to be created?
did my blinders just fly off at like mach10? the more i read this NONE of it makes any sense. god cursed the damn snake out of all the domestic animals? why? the snake was possessed lol...double whammy, he's got both god and satan after him, poor damn snake wtf?
genesis 2:1-2 completion of creation, but adam has no eve yet?
gen 2:7 god proceeded to make man, didnt you just make man at gen 1:26
gen 2:11-12 god is already giving adam gold and perfume?(and onyx) yet eve isn't created yet...
also he tells adam not to eat from the tree of good and bad...before eve is even created....put that in your pipe and smoke it.
so god says it's not good for adam to be alone, so the next line should be about eve right? wrong. it's about the flying creatures. gen 2:18-19
bible doesn't seem fond of women does it. i know i'm fond of them if that makes you feel better.
then finally he creates eve at gen 2:21 who was supposed to of been already created at gen 1:27 but then again at gen 2:18 man is alone....
