Genesis 1:11-13 Botany Created

Genesis 1:11-13 Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them”; and it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a third day.

It is on the third day of creation with the development of plant life that science gets turned upside down. This is where what one believes determines how one sees the world. People will see the world through one of these two prisms. The following observations are courtesy of Ken Ham.

Bible Life was created on the land first with plants.

Science: Life started in the oceans.

Bible: Plants were created before

Science: Plants after the sun.

Bible: Plants were created on Day 3; Insects were created on Day 6

Science: Plants and insects evolved together mutual benefit.

Bible: Land plants were first.

Science: Sea organisms were first.

Bible:  Atmosphere was created before plants.

Science: Plants produced oxygen rich atmosphere.

Bible: Fruit trees were created before fish.

Science: First fish evolved long before fruit trees.

Bible: Simple plants before fruit trees.

Science: Fruit trees before other plants.

Bible: Trees before land animals.

Science: Land animals before trees.

One reason God made the plants first is they were intended to be food. The planet was created for animal life and man so there would be a food source available immediately. Plants, fruits, and vegetables were created mature and ready to eat. Genesis 1:29-30 Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so. Man was created to be a vegetarian. Animal life was created to be vegetarian. God did not approve man being a carnivore until after the flood which is approximately 2,000 years after creation (Timeline provided by Ken Ham).

God created the world in His order. God’s order is not the same as science. Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
