The Days in Genesis
Genesis 1:5
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day...

Dear Jason,
First of all I'd like to commend you for being a truth-seeker. This is an admirable position!
First of all, I'll assume you're referring to the notion that Genesis Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 are telling two different accounts because the orders of things created are different.(?) [Genesis 1:11 has plants made on Day 3 while Gen. 2:8 has plants made after man on Day 6, etc.] However, Chapter 2 is only telling what happened within the Garden of Eden, on Day 6, the whole rest of the world was filled up with plants and animals described in chapter 1! There's no conflict!
So the sequence of events is this:
Day 3- God made the plants.
Day 5- God made the birds.
Day 6- God made the animals and then He made man,
then He made the garden of Eden and put man in it and the rest of the chapter is only dealing with what happened in the Garden!
then God made trees good for food in the garden only!
then He created one more of each animal out of the ground for Adam to name them and select a wife, Eve.
(Adam saw God create, Eve did not)
I hope this is helpful to you in your search! Keep going, you can do it!
