Problem is Genesis has two differing creation stories, and two differing flood stories. Biblical analysts call them JE (earlier) and P(later.) The book starts off with P.

How do you arrive to this conclusion, I have studied Genesis and read Genesis 1 as an overview of creation, Genesis 2 going into details of creation.

Chapter 1:1 is P (Yahweh or’God’) created :” Heaven and Earth first, Light, waters, Heaven, Seas, plants, animals , finally man and woman last”, in that order.

But 2:7 is JE (Elohim or ‘LORD God’) created :”Man first, then plants, rivers, animals, and finally Eve from the rib” , in that order.

I would like to see ID analysis of this.
