(Abraham 4) The Book of Abraham makes it clear that it wasn’t just Jesus or God who made the earth. Jesus created the world along with the help of Adam and probably more premortal leaders.

(Moses 3) The creation can be broken into two parts: Calming down chaos and creating life.

 

    1. Day 1: Creating order by dividing day and night
    2. Day 2: Division of the waters above and the waters below
    3. Day 3: Division of the land from the waters + plants grow
    4. Day 4: The heavens are filled with the sun, moon, and stars
    5. Day 5: The waters and the skies are filled with animals
    6. Day 6: All other animals are created and Adam and Eve are created
    7. Day 7: Planned rest

The days of the creation weren’t actually 24 hours days (see Abraham 4:8).  And each creative period (or day) didn’t necessarily take the same amount of time.  Elder Bruce R. McConkie said, “There is no revealed recitation specifying that each of the ‘six days’ involved in the Creation was of the same duration” (Ensign, June 1982, 11).  So dividing day and night could have taken half as long as making plants grow– we just don’t know!  If you had to guess though, which part of the creation would you think took the longest??
