      ...I'll give an answer that neither Yvonne nor JB will able to refute because they neglect CONTEXT when interpreting Scripture. The following verses follow the CREATION of the beasts and creeping things vss 24 and 25. The creation of MAN (being FIRST THE MALE Adam) as shown later in Gen 2:7 to be formed FROM THE DUST OF THE GROUND. If you follow the CONTEXT of the Scripture, Eve the FIRST WOMAN was NOT formed from the dust of the ground but rather formed Eve latrer from a rib taken from Adam. Yvonne maintains the rib was from the left side which is baloney because there is NO INDICATION AT ALL in the Scripture from where the rib was taken. Yvonne's statement is completely from her confused mind.

      Gen 1:26-28
      26 And God said, Let us make MAN in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
      28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (KJV)

      Gen 2:7
      7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (KJV)

      Gen 2:18-23
      18 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."
      19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought {them} to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
      20 And the man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
      21 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh at that place.
      22 And the LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.

      23 And the man said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of Man." (NAS)

      Now again focusing on Gen 1:26-28 the creation MAN IN HIS IMAGE vs26 followed the creation of the beasts and the creeping things. This is to show that man IS NOT AN ANIMAL but a SPECIAL CREATION created by God to commune with God. MALE and FEMALE were SPECIALLY CREATED IN HIS IMAGE to commune with their Creator .... Distinguishable from animals who were not created the same way.
