THE ATHEIST'S COMPLAINT:
When was Eve created? Genesis 1:27 says it was at the same time as Adam, but Genesis 2:20-22 says that it was after Adam and all the animals were created. Is there a contradiction?
Where in Genesis 1:27 does it say that God made man and woman at the same time? The first two portions of the verse speak of God creating man in His image, but make no mention of woman. It is not until the third segment of the verse that we read about woman, "...male and female He created them."
Genesis 1:27, just like Genesis 2:20-22, reveals taht woman was created after the beasts of the field and after Adam.
There is no contradiction here.
