In The Beginning (How it really happened)

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth but the earth had no form. The earth hovered in the void and the darkness both of which existed already as God stared out over the face of the deep!
And the spirit of the Lord hovered over the waters which also already existed and God could see this even though there was no light and God thought of light and there was light! God saw that the light was good. 
And God separated the light from the darkness. He saw that this was good.
God imagined that there should be an expanse in the midst of the waters that it would rise up and separate the expanse from the waters. It was so. It was good. God separated the above from the below and the waters that were under the expanse and over it. It was so. God named the expanse heavens and commanded the waters under the heavens to gather together in one place so that the dry land could appear! It was so. 
It was good. 
God named the dry land Earth. 
God named the waters gathered together the Seas and saw that it too was good
God imagined that the Earth would sprout to life with growth and it was so with vegetation, plants and trees, and all manner of seed and fruit producing plants, according to their kind and it was so. God saw that it was good.
And God imagined that there would be lights in the expanse of the heavens that there would be signs, and seasons to mark days and months and years, that the lights would give light to the Earth in a time God called the darkness and God imagined two great lights, one to rule the day, and a lesser light the same size to rule the night! These separated the night from the day and God saw that they were good
And God imagined flying things and swimming things to fill the skies and waters of the seas and it was so. It was good.
God created greater sea creatures and all others according to their kind both on land and sea and saw that they were good. 
God blessed them all making them male and female to bring forth animals of their kind and multiply upon the Earth. 
All the beasts of burden, the creepy things on the grounds, and all the livestock God made at this time.
It was good. 
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image and after our own likeness. Let this man have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the skies and over the livestock all over the Earth as well as, all creepy things that creep upon the earth." 
And so, God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created man; who was a complete being of both sexes being both male and female. God blessed them and said to them to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Behold you are given every plant yielding seed on the face of the earth and all that has breath of life and every green plant for food be it fruit or nut you shall have them. I give you every beast, every bird, and all that creeps upon the earth and god saw that it was all good. 
God finished his work on the last day and rested. 
God realized one day that he had not caused it to rain. The plants he had sprouted, the seeds he had promised did not come forth because he needed it to rain and so it rained and yet there was no working man to take care of the ground. 
Then the Lord took the man and breathed new air into him to take him and reshape him to be filled and strong with more life, more strength and less intelligence. And the Lord planted a garden in the eastern part of the E-Din and there he placed this new worker man he had formed in order that he may til the ground. 
Four rivers flowed from the E-Din. Pishon, Gihon,  Tigris, and Euprates rivers. 
God instructed this less intelligent man that he could eat of every tree or plant in the garden except for the one in the center of the garden which was the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 
After a time God said to the worker man that it was not good that he was alone. He had such a work load that he would have little time to procreate if he was among others but then who would work? So God imagined a helper and he began presenting them to the worker man who named each. Whatever the worker man named them God he called them but this was not satisfying to our Lord or the worker man. So God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the worker man. While under he took a rib to remove parts to extract the female from his body. As a separate and new being he created a woman, the first of her kind, female and only female made just for the worker man. 
God presented the woman to the worker man and said to him this is flesh of your flesh, she shall be called Woman because she was taken from the man, taken out of the man, extracted from the man therefore a man shall leave his father who is a Man and a man shall leave his mother who is a Woman and they will mate to become one flesh. And the Man and the Woman were both naked and unashamed. 

The 'Shining One' was wise, crafty, and more so than any other creation so far by the Lord. The Shining One said to the woman which God had created Did God actually say to you that you shall not eat of the any tree in the garden? And the woman said to the Shining One 'We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the trees in midst of the garden, nor shall you touch it lest you die! 
But the Shining One said to the Woman that God said these things to the man he did not say this to you. The Shining One said to the woman, "You will not surely die.' God does not wish for the man's eyes to be opened lest he would be like God, knowing both good and evil. But for the woman the fruit is good for food and a delight for the eyes and the tree is desired to make one wise! 
The woman took of the fruit and ate of it and immediately her eyes were opened and she saw that she was naked and now ashamed! The man came after she was afraid and she also gave some of the fruit to the man, her husband who took it and ate it not knowing what it was as it was partially eaten and did not look like the forbidden fruit.
Then both of their eyes were opened and both knew that they were naked. They sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin cloths. 
Then they noticed that the Lord was coming and on a cool day the man and the woman hid among the leaves. 
The Lord called to them saying, "Where are you?" And the man said, "I heard your voice and in the garden and I come but I am afraid because I was naked, so I hid myself. 
And God said, "Who told you that you were naked?" Have you eaten of the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil which I commanded you not to eat?" 
The man said, "The woman that you made for me to lie with, she gave me the fruit and I ate it not knowing what it was and the Lord said to the woman, "What is this that you have done?" The woman said, "The Shining One deceived me Father, he told me that I could eat of the tree that the man could not and so I ate and saw that I was naked and I was afraid! In my fear I gave the eaten fruit to my husband! 
Then the Lord said to the Shining One, "Because you have done this, knowing full well I told the man not to lay with a man, jealous as you be,  cursed are you above all the livestock and above all the beasts of the field and off your breasts shall go as I will put enmity between you and the woman I have made and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel." 
To the woman God said, "This act will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; outside of here you will experience pain to bring forth a child. Your desire to be with your husband shall rule over you."  
And to the man God said, "Because you have eaten of the fruit listening to your wife your eyes have been opened! You will leave the garden now lest you awaken the others I have made. The ground will feel as cursed because of your opened eyes, in pain and toil you will eat of it, sparse as it may be, all the days of your life.
Thorns, thistles, and the fields of the plants to eat and by the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground from which you were made. For you are dust and to dust you shall return. 

Then the Lord made garments for both of skins and clothed them both for the first time with fine garments and the Lord said, "Behold the man has become as one of us both knowing of good and evil, pain and sorrow and the tree of life of which he will surely seek to reach out his hand and take of it to live forever." 
And then the Lord sent the man and the woman, the Adam and the Eve out of the garden to work the ground from which they were taken. He drove them out east of the garden of Eden and then placed cherubim and a flaming sword turning every which way to guard the tree of life keeping it from view!
