Genesis Creation Day Three

Creation Day Three


Genesis 1:9
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it was so.

10 And God called the dry [land] Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that [it was] good.

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, [and] the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed [is] in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, [and] herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed [was] in itself, after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good.

13 And (there was) the evening (darkness) and (there was) the morning (dawning light) were the third day (time, phase).

There was at one time a large single land mass which later split into the continents as we have today.

In verses eleven and twelve we see the creation of the first life on earth . Note that the grass, herbs and trees were created bearing seed for species reproduction. Not only were the simplest plant forms created, but also the most complex. They produce oxygen which is required for the animals to breath.

Verses 29 and 30 of Genesis One tell us why plants were created on day three and before the animals. These verses say that the plants were to be food for all the animals and man. Naturally, the plants were in place, ready for the animals to eat upon their creation.

The laws of physics require an extended time period of many years as the emerging dry land drains of water, dries, and then sprouts the many types of plants which then mature into fruit bearing vegetables and fruit trees from which man eats. Also requires the development of the many types of climate zones so that the varied kinds of plants from rain forest species to desert types, from low land valley plants to mountain high plants, from tropical plants to extreme polar plants can sprout and mature. Many species are now extinct which we know about only from their fossil remains.
