And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field,
and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would
call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
After making the animals, God has Adam name them all. The naming
of several million species must have kept Adam busy for a while.
But animals were not created
instantaneously from the ground, but evolved over millions of
years. And we still don't have names for all of them. Ten thousand new species
of insects are discovered and named each year.
