The Earth, following God's directions to it, brings forth what God said, green growing plant life, some with spores and some with seeds, but all of which give rise to offspring which are basically identical. There is no hint given here that Darwinian processes are occurring. The words here are clear, after its kind-meaning like the same. It doesn't mean that slime gave rise to Redwoods.
You've had three days-yom- listed and still no sun, moon, or stars to mark time. So, what does day-yom- mean in these contexts? How can we as Biblical readers and critics give any set time period to at least these 3 "days" within the creation story. None is given so if we are to biblically follow God's command we are not supposed to add something into the text that is not there and in this instance, in order to get to 3, 24 hour days we would have to add something else into the text that isn't there, namely time!
