Calvin on Creation

Since earth’s second formation day (Genesis 1:6-8), continued Basil, “the rain falls from heaven” – contra to Neo-Catastrophism.   On the third formation day (Genesis 1:9-13), God decreed the earth “first to bring forth grass.   Then wood….   Then verdure.   Then the growth of the plants which, after having attained its full growth, arrives at perfection in seed.”

Such included both “useful plants” like “corn” – as well as “noxious plants” like “hemlock.” This refutes the later dispensationalistic argument that no plants — not even the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? — were poisonous to man or animals before the fall of Adam.
