I did say that Genesis was not a "day-to-day historical account" - the climax was the creation of humankind, a climax that could have taken quite a while to come to fruition.
(Original post by Erebus)
Firstly, God created humans in one big climax? I think evolution had to take place first.
No. "Tohu va bohu" is Hebrew for "without form and void" See
Your last paragraph caught my eye though. Is this to do with El and his Elohim? I'm genuinely interested
El, Elohim and Eloah are the three common Hebrew names of God, in addition to the proper name of Yahweh.
I hope that helps.
