I hate to say this Bob, but doing that just makes it very hard for you to use the Bible as an infallable source for any other information, doesn't it?

No, it doesn't. I don't allow for contradictions, however, and I choose the story that fits in line with the rest of the Bible.

Actually it doesn't contradict. It doesn't say Adam was an "extra" man, but this is simply more detail on the first part of creation. It seems to me the first chapter is an overview - if you will - and the second one a more detailed look at man.

Forgot my main point, and that is that God created a good man in his own image and likeness in the first story, with all power coming from God. The second story shows man as being mutable, as subject to error. Both of these things suggest than man is not in the image and likeness of God, who is not subject to error.

It doesn't infact say that He named them.

"Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree...and God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind:.. Let the earth bring forht the living creature after his kind,. cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind..."

"and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field..."

In the first, God is having all power, whereas in the second, mortal man has some power.
