For centuries humanity has wondered how the world came into existence and how and why it is that there is so much suffering in this world. Many sought the cause of beings or gods existing outside of humanity while the Torah focuses on just one God Who would be the Cause of everything.
The narrative of the Biblical creation story is the idea of ordering that is the result of divine intent. It is a fundamental biblical teaching that the original, divinely ordained order in the physical world has its counterpart in the divinely ordained universal moral order to which the human race is subject.
By the different peoples of the world we can find very similar myths in an effort to explain the beginning, of everything from nothing, by a divine intelligence or a Source of life.
Mankind has always looked for an understanding concerning the existence of things. They imagined divine powers bringing all those things a life or causing things.
Man created by the Elohim with a special intention, Him giving them His Torah [coming from the root y–r–h, “to shoot (an arrow)”] shooting at mankind to go deep into their heart.
At the origin of man the Divine Creator provided a world full of plants useful as food. Man was not so happy with it and wanted more variation and meat. God allowed such things but warned them about the good and bad meat or fish. God also gave man mitzvoth so that they could measure their wrong goings and should have a guide for their life. In his effort to play for God man has tried to muddle with genes and to create new hybrids. The understanding on genes and genomes, and ways to manipulate them has given many scientists extreme ideas, tending to distort and exaggerate the results or waving away the possible dangers for the next generations of plants and animals. Different kinds of risks, real benefits, aims and control systems are complicated and genuine discussion between people with different backgrounds is essential and should have to think very cautiously, wondering if we are not going to far. Not only genetic manipulation but also transporting food all over the world and producing it on industrial level should worry us and should make us to take the proper choice to protect the environment. Let us not forget that the Elohim wants us to be healthy – inside and out, living in a healthy clean environment always to know that a person is that what he eats.

God made Himself a beautiful Royal Garden, the Gan Eden with in the midst of it a Etz HaDa'as Tov v'Rah or Tree of moral of which God asked man not to touch it nor eat from the fruit that gives knowledge about good and evil because they would then certainly die. But we come to see that the nachash (temptation) was to strong for the isha and she got her husband involved in her act of disobedience to the Elohim.
Created in the image of God man has 49 sefirot in him or a 49-step process of self-refinement, having received orders from his Maker Who expect to fit man in His holy Plan.
After having brought structure in the cosmic chaos living creatures after their kind, came to populate waters and land. Last but not least human beings got the breath of life in them to multiply on earth.
The Bible is not only the best sold book in the world, it is also the book which gives the best advice, but that is something man does not like to accept from Some One or Some Thing he cannot see or touch, though if man would be willing enough to hear and feel, he could feel the presence of the Most High and feel His Guidance. Until today lots of people have been rebellious against God and it is that rebellion which made it so difficult for mankind. When more people would follow the teachings of the Holy Scriptures we would have a much better world.
