Why are there two distinct accounts of human creation in Genesis?

Are the two accounts irreconcilably different?

Thanks for asking a question on

If you read the accounts carefully, you will note that Genesis 1 is a very "high-level" account of creation.  Genesis 2 goes into detail about the creation of man and woman and their environment. The two chapters are not contradictory but rather complementary.

I hope you have found this helpful.
