|...it has long been noted that chs 1-3 of Genesis twice narrate the creation of the world. People are created first in 1:27-- "So God(s) [elohim]created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."--and then again in 2:7- "then YHWH God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living being." Furthermmore, the second creation account does not simply mirror or repeat the first, but differs from the first in both outline and detail. Gen 1:1-2:3, the first account, narrates the creation of a highly symmetrical world by a very powerful diety who creates through the word.[my emphasis]|
|Thus these are two separate stories, written by two authors, representing two different worldviews about the nature of creation, humanity and God.|

This has made me reread some passages-interesting thread.
