Your premise of animals dropped on the earth "whole" is not accurate.
My premise, for this exercise, will be that creationism is true, but the process is not as envisioned.
Do trees in your yard just appear? Or do they grow from seeds, or "suckers" growing off the original tree?
Do people (and animals) appear suddenly whole and fully grown, or do they reach full growth by a process?
Therefore, when God created our current existence, it was not instantaneous but rather the result of a process. Indeed one could say that He created
the process that created us. Therefore, God created man, correct?
(Change in perception)
God created man in his own image, correct? Surely God does not physically resemble the 60 year old guy I am ... therefore "man", as created in His
image, must be a reference to our soul. Therefore at some point in time man's pre-history, he became man by being infused with a soul or
spirit...that which resembles God.
This is further supported by the story of Adam and Eve. They had 2 sons, and one slew the other, correct?
Cain, after the murder, moved to the land of Nod and married. Therefore, there were other humans present, but yet Adam, Eve, Cain and Able were the
first of the race of man.
Perhaps the people of Nod were Cro-magnon, or Neanderthal...
