Atheist are the best because the don't believe in God or any Gods usually see scientist because they believe in science answers all the questions like the material world SECULAR HUMANISM God created men and saw them as VERY good. As God creates the animals and other creatures, he saw them as good. This is what separated man from animals and other creatures, which gives men the responsibility over earth and the creatures. God created the animals and other creatures as a "gift" to man with the understanding that the call of Stewardship is implied.
God created the world in seven days. On the seventh day he rested. The seventh day is called "The Sabbath". This relates to humanity because God rested on this day to acknowledge his work. God gives us a clue that we need to rest to stay mentally emotional, and spiritually well. People are also to worship the seventh day as the Lord's Day, and worship together as a family. CHRISTIAN
