God and Science in the Light of Genesis 1-9

Did plants and animals die and become fossilized before the time of man?   Or did plants and animals die haphazardly of their own accord, only after and because man rebelled?

Were animals and plants not fossilized until the Noachic Deluge?   Or did God cause plants and animals to die and some to fossilize into coal and oil, prior to Adam and for his use?

Did our Earth take five billion years and did our entire universe take up to twenty billion years to change itself into its present form?   Did man appear magically, less than nine thousand minutes after the materialization of the universe’s very first molecule?   Or did God calmly shape man as His Own image, as His very last creation?
