And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl [that] may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
Out of the waters came life, the first life upon this earth. The first life were the minute creatures of the sea. Now most believers will object to this because they believe that the whale was the first creature G-d created. However, the truth is in the details. It's important to take notice of the small details within G-ds Word. This verse is a good example of why.
Please notice that the bible tells us that, "....God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life." Then afterwards in the same verse, it says, "God created great whales...". The Hebrew word for moving creature is "Shehrets" which means, a swarm of minute animals. The bible tells us here that G-d created an enormous amount of small creatures. This cannot be whales. No matter how you look at it, whales are not minute animals of the sea. Therefore, G-d made an enormous amount of small creatures first to feed the whale which came afterwards. If you think about it, this interpretation makes perfectly good sense, because whales require between 8,000 and 340,000 lbs of food during their feeding season. That's an abundant amount of minute creatures.
G-d also created the birds that fly in the sky. Please notice that the bible says that it is the open firmament of the shamayim, the heavens, in which the birds fly. This is the part of the heaven in which everyone can survive, not outer space or the upper levels of heaven. Once again, this shows the Word of G-d is not naive or erroneous about what the actual make up or what occurred during the formation or creation of the earth. Of course, G-d told his creation to go and multiply and become self sufficient.
One last note: All creatures were multiplied after its own kind. It says it right here. G-d used the same material to create all living creatures, therefore all of G-ds creation will have similar genetic make up. This doesn't mean we all came from the same cell. My recommendation to the evolutionists would be quit wasting your time on finding the "missing link". The missing link that connects all things is G-d. I wouldn't mind the evolutionists wasting their own time. However, it's our money they're wasting trying to prove nothing more than their belief that G-d doesn't exist.
