Tony: I know I am late in coming to this conversation, but once again it seems like both of you are overlooking the simple, basic concept of "a time and place for every activity under heaven."

Why would god create animals before plants? Why would god create humans before animals?

Genesis 1
Then God said: “Let us+ make man in our image,+ according to our likeness,+ and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.”+ 27 And God went on to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.+ 28 Further, God blessed them, and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many, fill the earth+ and subdue it,+ and have in subjection+ the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving on the earth.”
29 Then God said: “Here I have given to you every seed-bearing plant that is on the entire earth and every tree with seed-bearing fruit. Let them serve as food for you.+ 30 And to every wild animal of the earth and to every flying creature of the heavens and to everything moving on the earth in which there is life,* I have given all green vegetation for food.”
+ And it was so.

WHY would god create mankind to "have in subjection" all the animals if there were no animals created? Why would he create all the animals if there were no "green vegetation for food" for them to eat. Things happened in their proper TIME.

Tony, you are quite correct. Of course animals had to come first and then plants and finally humans. My point is God does not see this as delay but preparation.
