I was reading somewhere that God was talking to some guy and God told him that he could only ctreate a single cell and hope that it would develope over time into what we are today...known as revolution. Is that true? God aslso stated to this guy that he lied about adam and eve. Inform me on what really happend or most likely the way we where created.
I wrote that dialogue as a joke in order to show the perils of "theistic" evolution.
God created the earth in six days and rested on the seventh. He created Adam from the dust of the ground and Eve from Adam's rib.
As for the patristic understanding of Genesis, I reccomend that you please start with this:
