  Creation according to Genesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Creation according to Genesis refers to the description of the creation of the heavens and the earth by God, as described in Genesis, the first book of the Bible.
Genesis is part of the canonical scriptures for both Christianity and Judaism, and to a lesser degree Islam, and thus to believers is taken as being of spiritual significance.
According to the documentary hypothesis the existence of two creation stories is the result of the merging of two distinct traditions into one unified text.

 Genesis 1:1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The verse begins the account of creation according to Genesis and its translation and interpretation is a major theological issue.
In midrash, Genesis Rabbah 1:10 recognizes that the letter is closed on three sides, and accordingly reads this as a sign to not speculate about the beginning of God or whatever preceded the creation account.
Similarly, midrash Genesis Rabbah (1:1) actually opens by declaring that the first word of the verse means "with the Torah" and it suggests that the Divine Architect used the Torah as a blueprint.

 Creationism
While the term creationism was not in common use before the late 19th century, creationists consider their primary source to be the ancient Hebrew text describing creation according to Genesis and see themselves as being the philosophical and religious offspring of the traditions that held that text sacred.
Creationism or creation theology encompasses the belief that human beings, the world and the universe were created by a supreme being or deity.
Here, clearly, creation is described as an absolute beginning, which includes the assertion that the very existence of the universe is contingent upon a necessary higher being, a God who is not himself created.

According to the classical creation texts, all of these activities and reactivities are part of the complex event 'creation.' All these reactive activities, which relate to that which is already "produced, " are requisite in order to bring the process of the creation of heaven and earth to a close.
Genesis 1 and 2 are also regarded in Christian churches and in the areas of their cultural influence as the orienting foundation for knowledge and talk about "creation." Even to the present day, exegetical and systematic efforts to mine the content of "creation" take recourse to these texts.

 The Doctrine of Creation and it's Significance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
In the opening chapter of Genesis we are told that God "spoke" or "called", "made" or"created." As a result material things came into existence, either immediately, or, where previously created materals were used, mediately (as, for example, in the formation of man "out of the dust of the ground" (Gen. 2:7, cf verse 19)).
The comprehensiveness of creation is brought out strikingly by the apostle PauL writing to the Colossians: "...by him (Christ) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.
created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by him, and for him: and he is before all things, and by him all things consist" (Col. 1: 16-17).

 Herman Bavinck on Creation
Rather they were created in and with the creatures as the forms in which those creatures must necessarily exist as limited, finite creatures.
But Genesis 1:2 reports merely that the earth was without form, that is, that it existed in a formless or shapeless state, undifferentiated into light and darkness, the several bodies of water, dry land and sea.
Finally, it deserves consideration that everything which according to Genesis 1 and 2 took place on the sixth day can hardly be crowded into the pale of such a day as we now know the length of days to be.

 Marriage and Man   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
According to Genesis 1:26-28, man was created to exercise dominion over the earth and to subdue it, and the command to "be fruitful, and multiply" was an aspect of the call to exercise dominion over the earth.
Thus, man was created, not as a child, so that he cannot be understood with reference either to a primitive past or to his childhood, but in terms of mature responsibility and work.
Responsibility is thus clearly a prerequisite to marriage for the man. Hence, later, the dowry system required the bridegroom to demonstrate his responsibility by turning over a dowry to the bride as her security, and the children’s security, for the future.

 Biblical Account of Creation Displayed   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
A scene representing Creation according to Genesis could equally be a metaphor for evolution as it could represent literal creation in 7 days, and would thereby appeal to Christians of all stripes.
In fact, the Judeo-Christian creation story is unique among all creation stories in that it does not deify the natural world in any way (suckling a cow, world on the back of a turtle, the sun giving birth, etc.).
To claim equivalence between a creation story that is unique in its treatment of creation and all other creation stories that deify elements of creation is a non-sequitir, and thus a straw man argument.
