At times it takes an eternity before something within our scope of creativity to be determined as useful. I don’t doubt that God was the source of the creation of earth, a part of the initial creation within all that we see in the heavens above us. I believe some 12.4 billion years passed from that initial time of creation, before God determined that earth could support creatures within his desire to give life.

When considering how Eve received her name, another verse bothers me in Genesis chapter 2 vs. 20, were we see the name Adam used for the first time. Sad to say without any reference to when received, why the name Adam was given, or by whom given. I question that because in Genesis chapter 3 vs 21 God said, “The man has now… Continue reading
