    I didn't say that Gen 2:7 wasn't tenable, I said that a particular interpretation thereof was not tenable.

    According to the Bible (Genesis 2:7), this is how humanity began:
    Nope. That is just one of the possible interpretations - and it is indeed not tenable.
    Ah, you did not specify in your citation what specifically as to how that statement you cited was not tenable from the article.

    It is not meant in the sense he needed rest, it is in the sense he stopped or rested from creating things.
    Like humans are said to be at rest when the finish working.
