That's what the rest of the Old Testament explains. It's a rather large collection of passages explaining how he uncreated most of the things he just created and how he plans to uncreate the rest of it as time goes on.

Well in the Torah, Bible and Qu'ran, the story continues:

Boiled down, we were innocent and knew only good and then we were taught uncleanliness by none other than another of Gods creations which rebelled against Him. These renegades were supposed to serve us, but some taught they were too good and were filled with pride. They made a pact and decided that they would demonstrate how weak we are and that they need not to serve us. This is what the story of Adam and Eve tells, but the version I speak of is found in the book of Enoch (Noah’s great grand father) and the Qu'ran.

So to put it simply keep reading the story God did many things on the 8th. 9th, 10th and it still goes on till today.

Edit:
Others have posted that the 8th hasn't come yet...I will look into that never took the time to study that aspect.

It depends on how you look at it. There is one interpretation that says the Age of Man is in prophetic years and measured by the passage that says a day to God is as a thousand years. So the Age of Man has roughly been 6,000 years of recorded history Biblically, the Millennial Reign of Christ will be another 1,000 (the 7th Day of Rest), and then will come the 8th which occasions the destruction of all this, the old Earth, and the making of an entirely new Earth and Heaven.

God created the world in 7 days as a prophecy to let us know how long human history would exist on this earth... the bible tells us 1000 years is like a day to the Lord. The world is to "work" and deal with the curse of sin for 6000 years(which we are at the end of) and the "millennium or 1000 years" listed in revelation is the 7th millennium where those who are saved will spend that "day" in heaven with the Lord... it is a 1000 year Sabbath.

And for those that are Christians, Sunday is not the Sabbath, Saturday is(you can not only ask any Jew, but look at the word for Saturday in 108 other languages.
The christian church kept Saturday as the Sabbath for the first 500 years of Christianity(easily verified by reading the early church father writings) Only chrisitans in rome and alexandra egypt kept sunday(ignoring the 4th commandmant of God)

in deut.6, God tells us to write the commandmens in our right hand and in our forhead.... and it continues on from there.... this phrase is only used in one other place.... revelation when talking about the mark of the beast, If you read this verse in revelation... God tells us that Following HIS commandments is how we avoid the mark of the beast!!! Why is this? because Sunday is the mark of the beast... follow my train of thought for a min...

God claims the sabbath is His mark of authority on us.
in Daniel 7, God warns us that what the antichrist(little religious kingdom that rises out of the roman empire) would think to change Gods times and law... there is only 1 commandment that is both a time and a law... and it was changed by the power that all protestant churches used to claim was the beast or antichrist... but they for some reason could not figure out what the mark of the beast was... when it was under their nose the entire time...

the Catholic church claims they not only changed the 4th commandment to sunday by the popes authroity... the fact all protestant churches FOLLOW that change is them accepting the popes claim to that authority... you can read all this in "Romes challenge"...

Some dont take the days literal.

Rather than periods of time.

A few have already touched on the answer as I percieve it. This IS the eighth day. Still is. Just like the Big Bang. Some think the Big Bang ended eons ago. I think that the Big Bang is still in process and we are in the middle of it.

If we can trust that the events of Genesis Chapter three are chronological then on the eighth day just before noon Eve was a little hungry and the serpent beguiled her and led her to eat of the tree they were instructed not to eat of. She gave some to her Husband who did eat willfully.

Then they knew they were naked and spent the rest of that afternoon sewing fig leafs together for clothing.

Then in the cool of the day around 5 or so God came into the Garden (he already knew) and called for Adam but they hid themselves out of fear because they knew they had sinned against God. He pronounced judgement against them and the serpent (not a talking snake as ignorantly stated by many).

Then at the time of evening sacrifice (later set up for Israel) God killed some animals (most likely two sheep) made coats of skins for them. The next morning on the ninth day he put them out of the Garden and placed a Cherubim and a fiery sword to block the way back into the Garden.

That is what went on the eighth day if we can take them as preserved, literal and somewhat chronological and all of this is found in the BIble just follow the narrative as found in the first four chapters of Genesis.

Seriously. He shot a 57. He would have shot a 56, but he shanked a 1-Iron. Even HE cannot pure a 1-iron.

Many go to church on Sunday after the traditions of the early church. The Sabbath (Saturday) is the day of Rest and it was for Israel only never was it commanded to Adam or any other Gentile.

Sunday is the Day of the Resurrection of Christ known as the first day of the week. Christian Sunday does not replace Israel's Sabbath day.

Thank you ChesterJohn.
'The Day of the Resurrection of Christ', that's beautiful.

Thought the question about what God did on the 8th was answered by KISS.

Perhaps its symbolic, the first 6 days spanning the creation of the universe and the 7th day being the universe returning to its uncreated essence. All forms manifesting by energy vibrating at differentiating frequencies but inevitably returning to a state of rest only to be stirred up again into another universe.

So what did God do on the 8th day? It began manifesting vibrational forms again. Consider your mind, as it imagines images and thoughts it is working in vibrational patterns, but when it comes to rest no thoughts or images arise. Its a never ending cycle.

On the 8th day "SHE" created the dog:

www.youtube.com...

I figure, in ALL My time in this here 'skin suit' it has always been the Female that brought about Life, nurtured Life and provided compassion for those involved in Life. It was the Male that 'took/stole' Life.. What if it were 'true' I'd be in a smaller section for "Review" You know after I talk St. Pete into giving Me a break...

I'll stick with "Her" and the dogs....

This is the 7th day still, the eighth day starts after the Millennium. The theology is a little complex, you can find tons of stuff on the net for it.

On the eighth day of creation, God raised Christ from the dead.
That was the general understanding of the early church, based on the fact that he was raised on the first day of the week- that is, the day following the seventh day.

"Wherefore also we keep the eighth day for rejoicing, in the which our Lord Jesus rose from the dead, and having been manifested ascended into heaven"- "Epistle of Barnabas"- 15 v9


That is why "the eighth" gets a symbolic significance in the New Testament.
2 Peter ch2 v5, using the fact that there were eight people on the ark, descibes Noah as being saved as "an eighth man". That "eighth" associates Noah with Christ, and so sets up the ark as a metaphor about Christian salvation.
I understand this is the reason why baptismal fonts were traditionally built as octagons.
(In modern translations, this line of thought is smothered by the meaningless paraphrase "Noah was saved along with seven others", which makes it impossible for modern readers to pick up the number symbolism)

The other reference is Revelation ch17 v11, where the beast, following the seven kings, is described as "an eighth". Not "an eighth king". Just "an eighth". That identifies the beast as an imitator of Christ, as does the earllier detail that he has "two horns like a lamb".

So, you see, asking a silly question may sometimes net you a serious answer.

P.S. Of course the Beatles knew this all along.
"Eight days a week I love you..."

On the 8th day god created cancer, his greatest accomplishment yet, designed to undo all his mistakes. He became distracted with floods and plagues as they excited him but lately remembered about cancer. No prejudice, no hate, unity, everything he failed in creating man kind.

On the 9th day he created the lust for All clergymen to desire small alter boys, for his own amusement as always. Hate to think what the 10th day brings.
