6 But I, the Lord God, spake, and there went up a amist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
7 And I, the Lord God, formed man from the adust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the bbreath of life; and cman became a living dsoul, the efirst flesh upon the earth, the first man also; nevertheless, all things were before created; but spiritually were they created and made according to my word. (Pearl of Great Price | Moses 3:5 – 7)
The burden of having to describe the creation of the earth in simple enough ways to be understood by men for a number of milleninia is substantial. Also, to speak of such sacred things as the relationship between man and woman…wow, that’s not an easy thing to try to do, and to do in something less than 1000s of pages.
