Karisma Burgess CWV-101 September 22, 2019 Dr. Watson Origins of Religion Earth. Where it all began and how it all started. Who has the power to create life from no life and man from dust? God. The Bible has many perceptions; some see it as poetry and others see it as fiction. Christians see the Bible as facts; hardcore evidence. Atheists see the bible as a book of tales; like folklore. Believers in God who are not committed to any religious affiliation see the Bible as a learning tool; take from it what you will. Genesis Chapter one is the first creation story, where God created and established everything. He puts everything into motion within the span of six days, and on day seven, he rested. On the first day, God separated light from darkness. Each day had a morning and a night. On the second day, God separated the sky from the land by forming a vast wedge between them. On the third day, God created the oceans by bringing all water together at one place and created land to be the separation. Plants and trees were created. The fourth day is when God put light in the sun, moon, and stars. The fifth day is when God created sea animals and those that could fly. On the sixth day, God created land animals and finally humans made in the image of God. On the seventh day, the sabbath day, God basked in his glory, and rested. Genesis Chapter Two tells the story of Adam and Eve, where Adam is created from the dust of the ground and breathe is brought into his nose. The garden of Eden is planted, and Adam
is placed there. At God’s command, the beauty of nature arises, including the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam is ordered to take care of this garden, and he is also not supposed to eat from the tree of knowledge, or he will lose his immortality. To keep Adam company, God created animals that Adam named. God also created Eve from Adam’s rib, and Adam names her woman because she was taken from man. Therefore, man and woman marry, to become “one flesh.”
