You raise a valid point. I love the story of Creation and have researched it, so I'll admit an 'eye witness account' couldn't be by anyone but God Himself, or Adam.
In the past there has been controversy about whether Moses actually wrote the book of Genesis, or plagiarized it from the accounts of Creation and the flood taken from early documents of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Enoch, Isaac, and Jacob. (did I leave anyone out?)
However now ancient writings have been found in the Middle East dating back as far as 3500 B.C. which would be when Adam was still alive. No one even knew that writing went back that far! I think that's so neat.
So anyway, since Adam was alive during that period of time, he very well could have written the accounts as he knew it of Creation, making it a 'first hand account', which proves that these documents were passed on from one generation to the next, and put together into one book called the BOOK OF GENESIS! Cool, huh?
