‘How did God create Humankind? Scientific and Biblical views – from the chaos of evolution to the mysteries of faith and redemption’ written by Dr Ali Ansarifar.
Faith is the greatest mystery of all, and redemption through the person of Jesus Christ is the reason for the universe’s existence and the creation of humanity. In Genesis, light and darkness co-existed and were separated to create the world, but in the person of Jesus Christ, light and darkness are separated forever, and redemption is achieved. The apparent conflict between science and religion is replaced with a more positive use of scientific knowledge to understand Genesis in the Bible.

Actually How Did God Create Humankind?
According to the biblical narrative, in the first chapter of Genesis, God is described as creating the entire universe, including the Earth, in six days. On the sixth day of creation, God is said to have created humankind in His own image and likeness:
“Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.'” – Genesis 1:26 (NIV)
God is further described as forming the first man, Adam, from the dust of the ground and breathing life into him:
“Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” – Genesis 2:7 (NIV)
Afterward, God created the first woman, Eve, from one of Adam’s ribs, forming the first human couple.
It’s important to recognize that these accounts are symbolic and theological in nature, conveying the idea that humans are created with a special relationship to God, endowed with the capacity for reason, morality, and spirituality. The specifics of the creation narrative are subject to various interpretations and may be understood both literally and metaphorically within different Christian traditions.
Other religious and cultural beliefs have their own narratives of how humankind was created, each reflecting their unique perspectives and traditions.
