This question presents something of a paradox.
The idea that the Christian God created the planet, people, and the animals, in six days just as the book of Genesis says, is absolutely miraculous. I would think it would take a tremendous leap of faith to embrace this idea.
The idea that God then took out Adam's rib and made Eve is rather pale in comparision, at least to me.
So, I guess I am saying that it seems to me that if one accepts the part of the story that says God is the creator, then why not accept the part of the story that details the creation of Adam and Eve?
But as far as what god says ... He spells everything out pretty clearly if you can read and have any kind of Reading Comprehension skills at all ... Anyways ... This Is my last/first posts in this thread this is not even worth the space it is on....
BUT physically, from a scientific standpoint...all babies start out female and then differentiate into male if the Y chromosome is present. Science, IMO, demonstrates divine intention. Or something like that.

in the bible we have 2 seperate accounts of how men and women were created
account 1: everything else on the planet is made, then both man and woman are created simulatneously
account 2: man made, animals made, woman made

Maybe we should take the whole story with a pinch of salt ?

When it is translated Adam's 'rib' it is more correctly understood as a 'side' of Adam. Which could mean a lot of things if taken out of the literal physical perspective. Perhaps it was the side of Adam that was a 'living soul' that became Eve?
