In days 5 and 6 God fills the earth with fish, birds, and animal life.  Every living thing except for mankind is created complete, mature, and ready to go.  This answers the age old question: 

Which came first? The chicken of the egg.

In fact they came together.  God created the birds and other animals fully mature and bless them with the task of multiplying.  So the chicken is created ready to lay the eggs that God created insider of her.


Consider the variety of fish, birds, and animals on the earth and the way ecosystems work together to support each other.  What wisdom must God have to create this?


What power must He have to perfectly to this in a word?


What purpose can we draw from all of these animals is we know everything was vegetarian at this point?  When did the diet change for creation?



God the Father has eternally existed in the past and will eternally exist forever in the future.  He alone is the sovereign creator and supreme ruler of everything.  He is unchanging, omnipresent,  omnipotent, omniscient and entirely holy in every capacity.
