Creation Day 6: Animals And Mankind
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so ... And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth"
The Creation continued (see Creation Day 1: Let There Be Light and Creation Day 2: The Heaven Above, The Waters Below and Creation Day 3: Continents And Oceans and Creation Day 4: The Calendar and Creation Day 5: Creatures Of The Sea And Air) on Day 6 with land animals and mankind.
Humans were the last of the life forms on Earth to be created, but a responsibility toward all other creatures: "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth."
It is entirely logical that land-based creatures were created from the "land." The Hebrew word pronounced aw-dawm-ah meant earth - the planet overall, but specifically the soil. The word is variously translated as earth, ground or land. Humanity, male and female, were called aw-dawm (from which the name Adam originated) because they were created from aw-dawm-ah - the male directly, then the female from the man.
Humans were created after the animals, who were also created from the same aw-dawm-ah i.e. "Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so." In that regard, there is no difference between humans and animals.
"1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
The first human was, for some time, the only human. The LORD then created the first female as a physical mirror image of the first male.
"2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
"Woman" was the first name given to the first female. It was also Adam that said both sentences as one, thereby declaring the basis of genuine, natural marriage: "And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
"2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Fact Finder: What Power will restore life to the dead in the same way that It created living matter from lifeless elements in the beginning?
This Day In History, April 13
1059: In an attempt to remove the Papal-appointment power of the German Emperors (see The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation and Emperors and Popes), Pope Nicholas II decreed that future popes would be elected only by cardinals (see The Struggle For The Papacy).
1111: German King Henry V was crowned Holy Roman Emperor (see The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation).
1204: Constantinople fell to the Crusaders of the Fourth Crusade, temporarily crippling the Byzantine Empire (i.e. the east Roman Empire). Constantinople was named after the Roman Emperor Constantine, the inventor of the Church of Rome and most of its Babylonian/Roman doctrines (see Emperor Constantine's Sun Dogs and Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).
1598: The Edict of Nantes was promulgated by Henry IV of France. It granted political rights and some degree of religious freedom to the French Huguenots. The edict remained in effect for 87 years.
1759: French forces defeated the European allies at the Battle of Bergen.
1829: The British Parliament granted freedom of religion to Catholics in Britain. The Catholics had been restricted because of their proclaimed loyalty to the Pope in Rome rather than their own country - including with numerous attempts to assassinate Kings and Queens of the United Kingdom at the behest of various Popes.
1849: The Hungarian Republic was proclaimed.
1861: After 34 hours of bombardment, Union-held Fort Sumter surrendered to the Confederate forces.

1953: Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Allen Dulles began the mind-control program "MKULTRA" that used unknowing U.S. and Canadian citizens and hospital patients as its test subjects. The criminal program included the use of illegal drugs (e.g. LSD), hypnosis, isolation and sensory deprivation, verbal and sexual abuse and torture. Many died from the heinous medical experiments that were equal in evil to anything done by Hitler's Nazi regime during the Second World War.
1959: A Vatican edict prohibited Roman Catholics from voting for communists.
1960: France became the 4th nation with atomic "weapons of mass destruction" (see also Who Would Throw A Nuclear Boomerang?).

1970: An oxygen tank exploded on the U.S. Apollo 13 spacecraft, causing an abort of the moon landing and near loss of the crew.
1999: Dr. Jack Kevorkian was sentenced to 10 to 25 years in prison for murder - the killing of a terminally ill man who wanted to commit suicide. He taped the killing which was shown on the CBS program 60 Minutes. Kevorkian claimed to have assisted over 130 deaths during the previous 10 years.
