Try again: In Genesis, chapter 2, How many creatures were created out of the earth (ground/dirt), and how many were not?

Read Genesis, Chapter 2. Look for which of the creations God made from the dirt and which were not made from the earth/dirt. Please, don’t comment if you haven’t read chapter 2 or studied it. You know what to look for. Have fun! Make reading the Bible enjoyable. It’s not a lot of reading. Read it through once like you normally read something. Then, read it again, and go slowly, and study it as you go, looking for the point we’re talking about.

    It depends on what you mean by created from dust.

    If by literal sand, it is highly unlikely that any creatures were created from sand and that the only creatures that came from non-living matter were almost certainly very simple bacteria.

    But, consider the statement;

    "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." (Genesis 3:19)

    When we die, we do not become sand. We become fertilizer and also a gas with a very noxious odor, which is very similar to the gas used in primordial soup experiments.

    Apparently Genesis was written by Moses. How in the hell did he know about the garden of Eden and Aden and Eve, or Noah's flood? He wasn't even there to witness it. That's not testimonial evidence. That's folklore.

    What was taught in Genesis ch 1 concerning let the waters bring forth then let the Earth bring forth is important based on the wording. Notice The Word doesn't say let Us make these creatures.The wording lends itself to a natural process. That life began in the oceans then moved upon the land. We know this process now in Science and call it Evolution thru natural selection. Now there is a false doctrine concerning ch 2 of Genesis  being just more information about ch 1. No ask yourself if the planet was teaming with life in ch 1 why did God all of a sudden have to now step in and bring animal life back to the Earth?What caused the extinction that moved God to restore supernaturally that which came about naturally?Read in Genesis ch 3 concerning the serpent being wiser or more subtle than any beast the Lord had made.Notice the wording. That serpent/caveman was the product of evolution and thru its son Cain became this missing link men still look for .This serpent/caveman is our common ancestor to the animal kingdom.Those caveman species were going all over the Earth and using up nature for their own sustenance. Even creatures they didn't use they wiped out as they were considered their competition. They brought this Earth and its lifeforms to near or even extinction.We modern men do the very same as them.This is whats important to take from Genesis ch. 2. Genesis ch 2 isn't more information concerning ch 1 Genesis ch 2 is in response to what happened to all of a sudden cause the extinction of life from ch 1.Genesis ch 3 reveals this caveman/serpent creature yet it was the product of evolution taking place in Genesis ch 1. The talking snake is a lie and false doctrine. Notice it wasn't until its curses did it become part of the reptile family. Before its curse it could walk uprightly as a biped and talk. It even had knowledge and wisdom and seduced the woman into a physical relationship. Cain is this seed of the serpent. The serpent in Genesis is the same as the caveman in our Science books.Notice Cain isn't mentioned in Genesis ch 5 where is given Adam's genome.Eventually Cains daughters were taken by Adam's sons. Genesis ch. 6 verses 1&2 teach of the cross-breeding of those two separate and distinct gene-pools from Gen 4 and Gen 5. Hence today we are all hybrids of those two genomes. That is why we modern humans share genetic material from the animal kingdom this Revelation of the seed of the serpent/caveman answers all modern questions concerning us modern humans. As if we are created in God's image how come we are related to the animal kingdom as well.To deny this means you blaspheme God saying He was a creature lower than modern men. God Jesus the second Adam didn't have genetics linking him to the primate families.Well there it is. Where did we come from. QUESTION ONE MEN SEEK TO KNOW. QUESTION NUMBER TWO WHERE ARE WE GOING. The answer to that is also in The Word of God. HOW LONG HAVE WE GOT is a matter of Prophecy!  So Genesis ch 2 is the restoration of the animal kingdom from Genesis ch 1  JESUS BLESS YOU

    As science clearly demonstrates, the most primitive life forms developed from non-living matter, millions of years ago. All other life forms on Earth gradually developed from these initial life forms.

    In Genesis 2:7 Adam was created from the “dust from the ground.” In Genesis 2:19 “Jehovah God had been forming from the “ground” every wild animal of the field and every flying creature of the heavens....” in Genesis 1:20-21, it repeats the “flying creatures” with “living creatures [in the water]” making a possible, but not absolute link, to our subject.

    —So I found no black and white statement that creatures that swarm in the waters were made of dirt/dust from the earth. But there may be that link in Genesis 1:20-21.

    —All that’s left is one more creation that was not made directly from the ground/dirt/dust: woman. Adam’s wife was created using part of Adam (his rib), so they truly were one flesh. She was not made directly from the ground.

    Equally important is the sequence of creation, which differs considerably from organic evolution theory.

    Man was formed that way, (Genesis 2:7), and 'every beast of the field and bird of the sky,' (verse 19). The only one not formed that way was 'woman,' since she was developed from the rib bone of the man.
