A man cannot go out and rape a woman and say "fuck it, I'll just pray tonight and god will forgive me", it doesn't work like that.
Seriously, this is like early bible school stuff that even children can grasp.
Jesus or God could have told us somethings that would have been very useful. For instance, he could have told us about germ theory. Or he could simply have made all the germs disappear, why did he create cancer for instance? The Bible tells us nothing that was not already known at the time. No new information was presented. No science, no tales of unknown lands or continents, no explanations of gravity or the speed of light, nothing about tectonics or genetics, no hints on how to make a printing press or microscope, no mention of electricity or where the Sun goes at night, no mention of the globe itself or that dinosaurs once roamed the land. Nope, he said very little that could not have been said by just about anyone alive at the time.
Similarly, let's say I gave you all the raw materials (lithium, other metals, plastic ingredients, etc) required and the drawings for how it fits together... how long before you could make a working iPhone?
It was written for a very specific reason which is salvation.
The creation of the earth is covered in like one page when the actual history of what took place would probably fill volumes.
God put the beginning and the end in the Bible for context, not something to focus on. In fact that is how the entire thing is written. Stories that lead up to the point God wants us to understand but to many people focus on the details and not the main point.
