After their Kind
Within this work I have established what I believe to be a strong argument about the point at which God organized all that He had created – the Days.  It was not until this point that “man” or animals were spoken of as “after their kind”.  When Adam became “the father of a son in his own likeness, according to his image” (Seth) we are reading Genesis 5, the “book of the generations of Adam [referring to] the day when God created man ... in the likeness of God ... and He blessed them and named them Man”.  What has changed here with the text of Genesis 5 is that God is telling us He has established the image of man to be that of Jesus, God become flesh, and that with the line of Seth man is blessed, where man was not yet blessed before Seth.
    This presents us with a possible explanation for the extinction of Neanderthals, our supposed nearest relative.  Neanderthal man evidently became extinct about 30,000 years ago (a) and Homo
sapiens sapiens became the only “man” left on the earth.  With much of modern science looking for it, the strongest “evidence [is that] Neanderthals were not a subspecies of H. sapiens” (b). This leads me to believe God is telling us with the Bible, not modern science, the most accurate, if not very detailed, story of man’s origins.  It seems most evident that God has explained to us how man was not yet in the image of God (Jesus) until the son of Adam, Seth, was born (Genesis 5).  This certainly does not confirm the evolutionist’s views of all life and man’s origins. but it does parallel God’s move to organize His creation with the “Days” of Genesis 1:3-2:3 and the extinction of early man, those of flesh, in which was the breath of life, those from the very beginning and not yet in the image of God.

The purpose(s) of the Flood of Noah
With careful reading one can determine that God’s unhappiness was with “man ... from the face of the land”, Genesis 6:7, clearly the man also spoken of in Genesis 2, in whom was “the breath of life”.  God tells Noah He will bring “the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life”, Genesis 6:17, i.e. man not described as being in the image of God.  
     At the same time Noah was instructed to save birds and creatures after their kind (Genesis 6:20, 7:14).  This establishes that all of the men and animals entering the ark for survival were after their kind, but more importantly they are the men and animals entering the structure of the Creation Days of Genesis 1:3-2:3.  Taken to its logical conclusion this is telling us that many of the animals in earth’s distant past were coming to an end and that some animals, very settled in their present form, would survive and it is announcing the end of inter-speciation of animals.
     A second purpose for the words about the flood of Noah is to show us how God ends the ability of the fallen angels / sons of God (Genesis 6:2) to cohabitate with and have children by women of the earth (another form of inter-speciation I suppose).  We know this because God says specifically “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever because he also is flesh...” Genesis 6:3.
     From a graphical perspective, the flood is where the gathered waters, symbolized by the outer blue square of a Third Day, are made to cover the whole earth in another way.  The symbol for the earth is divided from the heavens horizontally, and the waters are permitted to rush in.  Genesis 7:20 tells us that “the water prevailed fifteen cubits higher and the mountains were covered.”.  
    Before Noah “walked with God”, Genesis 6:9, there was another.  Enoch walked with God also, Genesis 5:24).  I take God at His word and so this tells me that before the flood of Noah it was possible for man (certain men) to enter into heaven and literally walk with God, as if heaven and earth were touching.  Just as it was possible for certain High Priests to safely enter the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle of the Jews.  This would also account for the ability of the fallen angels, heavenly beings, to have contact with women. After the flood this direct contact was not so simple.
    By dividing the heavens and the earth in this way God is making it more difficult for people attempting to again mix with angels and create “men of renown” (Genesis 6:4) but it didn’t stop them from trying to build the tower of Babel “into heaven” for this purpose, Genesis 11:4.  So, in the days of Peleg, the earth was divided, Genesis 10:25, creating a second separation of the earth and heaven.  Now there is no reaching heaven from earth.  Graphically speaking, there is a complete cross-section cut out of the earth and heaven combo – a cross-section that can only be filled with a Cross, showing us God’s plan for man to be able to cross over into heaven.

The fallen Creation
The following graphics show a perfect creation (left) and a divided creation (right).  The reason I show these to you is to illustrate the changes that took place when God brought the Flood upon the earth.  Again, notice how on the perfect creation inside the dark blue outer square the upper half (the heavens) is not separated from the lower half (the earth).  God’s throne, top center, is on the edge of the creation not outside of it.  And if you can get a close view of the stars by zooming in on the linked PDF file you will see there is one “star” that is met exactly by three of the red lines that represent the words emanating from the Throne.
     On the divided creation (right) the Throne of God is a slightly above the creation and the heavens and the earth are separated two ways, both horizontally and vertically.  This happend as a result of God “lowering” the two triangles, 2 left and 2 right, to allow a space between the heavens and the earth.  The upper half of the triangles remain in place.  If you look closely at the stars in the separated creation you will see the same star, that had been crossed by three lines exactly, are now three stars.
    If you remember our graphic for a Third Day showing the dark blue square God called Seas surrounding the inner square, this move would have allowed waters from all directions to cover the earth completly.  As Genesis 7 says, “the water prevailed fifteen cubits higher and the mountains were covered”.  Graphically speaking, this separation permits the entrance of God into our world with the LIfe of Jesus and His Cross.  The Cross permits believers to walk with God while on earth, all by the work of Jesus.

Close comparisons allow us to see the major changes in the creation that were needed to accomodate the coming of Christ.  But it can just as easiy be said that if there had never been sin in the world there would be no need because man would already be living with God in the perfect creation - the “garden”.
