In case you guys aren’t aware of some of the subtleties of the creation stories, I’m going to fill you in.
The first, better known, creation stroy is very straight forward and planned out. One day God creates day and night, another day he creates earth and sea and eventually he creates man and woman.
But in the second creation story, God gets experimental. He creates the land but then has to create Adam out of its dust because the land needed tiller. After man is created, God realizes that man will need a “helper”, a sexual helper that is. Like I said, God was feeling experimental and tests out Adam with all animals before finally creating Eve from a rib of Adam.
Sorry honey, aren’t sloppy seconds a bitch?
