When was Adam made?
The account of the making of the man who is known as Adam occurs in Genesis 2:7. Verses 5 & 6 describe the conditions when he was made. Comparing this to Genesis one indicates that Adam was made on day three, after the making of the land and seas and before the plants.
Fortunately and unfortunately humans have a mind. Our life is made of experiences, and from this we have built an image of what life on Earth is. Let us call this image the world. With this image we process our experiences. We use this image in the creation of our behaviour.
Clearly the more accurate this image is the more realistic our understanding of our experiences will be, and the more coherent will be our behaviour.
Here are some books which have helped me to create a more realistic image of life on Earth.

It has been for two years now that I have delayed publishing what I know about Christianity. This has been for a number of reasons, the primary ones being that many abuse survivors have found much needed refuge, community and protection in Christianity and that also great work has been done in child abuse prevention by numerous dedicated Christians. The other main reason was not having been able to identify the positive side of Christianity beyond the obvious ethical, social, family and community guidelines that it provides. This latter reason has been solved through familiarity with Christic souls, and this essay contains a contribution to Christology, the branch of Christian theology relating to the person, nature and role of Christ. Due also to the flood of cases of child abuse by Christian clergy and in Christian churches which have been exposed I am offering information which will give a context for understanding the organisational basis of child abuse within Christianity and which will arm people for much needed house cleaning duties.
