Suppose that the bible was written without help from God.
If you were writing this bible as a ordinary man, why in the world would you say birds came before snakes, or before other things that seem less complex in the order of creation? It wouldn't make any sense. In fact, it would go against all logic of the day. Yet, now science says that birds did evolve before snakes. How could a Godless man, without the science of today guess this? And even if he did guess this why would he print it knowing it would go against common thought of his day?
The creation story in Genesis matches up very well with what we now think we know of creation from science.
In nature is seems like all of the evolution that we observe goes from a higher order to a lower order. However, the principle of evolving from lower to higher does work - given enough time. The only problem is time. It takes almost no time at all to see something go from a complex state to a less complex state, but it takes a very long time for things to evolve from simple to complex.
It really makes you wonder how something complex comes into being. If things are constantly falling apart, how does anything ever put itself more together (and stay) and become something new AND more complex than previously existed?
A long time ago I was talking with my Dad about Creation. I asked how the World could be created in 7 days.
He asked me if I lived 2000 years ago and all of the sudden I had a vision of how a TV worked in the same way we do today, how would I describe a TV to my friends. They wouldn't have any understanding of anything about a TV.
If I tried to describe the technical details of television it would all be lost on them. Probably the best I could do would be to describe it as a box in which you could watch moving pictures. But what is a moving picture?
My father made me think. His point was that this would be the same sort of situation you would be in if God gave you the knowledge of how the Earth was created. Even knowing everything we think we know today, if we were thrust back in time and tried to explain how the Earth was created it would be very difficult to do well.
Perhaps the easiest thing to do would be to describe creation in periods. We could call each period a day just to make it simple but in reality each period would be quite different in length.
