    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he crated them. And God blessed them , and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."

    Sounds more like God's way to me.

    I don't recall the word "concrete" being in either the old or the new testaments, nor especially being mentoned in the account of creation - you presume too much.

    That is merely one way that man "subdues the earth" according to his biblical mandate. He is adapting his surroundings to suit himself while imposing his will upon nature. Concrete is implicitly endorsed by Genesis.

    But possibly still on concrete. Or was knowledge of concrete something Adam got from the forbidden fruit? If so, is man better off now or worse off (than Adam)?

    According to the story Adam should have lived without fear of death or disease or hunger or threat.

    Do you think we're better off now than Adam was then?
