The dividing lines of "Creation Accounts" seem to be Genesis 1:1-2:4a, and Genesis 2:4b-3:24. Skeptics have often used this accounts to try and "disprove" certain things, or point out there are discrepancies in the Bible, etc. But recently reading through Caputo's book, he points out something much more calling.
The first creation account includes God creating something (although perhaps not ex nihilo, according to Caputo - which includes a beautiful move from metaphysical debates to a focus on God creating LIFE. Which is a good move to make I think, even if you have to stand firmly on nihilo.) each day, and ultimately making a powerful declaration. He makes his declaration firmly after each step of the process, and ultimately over all things that have been made.
Or as others have put it - "Yes, YES"
It is the SECOND creation account where Adam and Eve lead all humanity down a path undesirable. But Caputo points out that this is only AFTER God has already put his stamp/proclamation of "it is Good/YES" on all things He has created. Perhaps there is a message in these two creation accounts being placed in the order they are in. There is an incredible emphasis possible here. What does this mean?
Our ability to mess things up is NOT an ability to take away from what God has already proclaimed is our design, and our future. We are, in a sense, writing our stories onto an ancient parchment onto which God has already plastered His giant and irrevocable "YES" in giant letters, although humbly allowing our letters to be seen on the page. I will end with a quote from page 91 of "Weakness of God":
