One of these things is not like the other.

A conversation:
Me: "Hey [Friend]! Let's play a game!"
Friend: "Okay."
Me:"Pretend you're a creationist. Which creation story in Genesis do you believe in? Chapter 1? Or Chapter 2:1b?"
Friend: "Ummmm..."

So here's the deal, yo. There are not one but TWO creation stories in Genesis within the first two chapters. They use different words for God's name and everything (this strongly suggests different authorship for each story). People get created TWO different ways - via God's divine magic-ness and via dirt/God-breath. TWO stories.

So how the heck can people claim that the Bible is infallible when it tells two entirely different stories about the exact same thing?
