Why are there two versions of Creation in the Bible

In Genesis, chapters 1 and 2 describe two different versions of creation, and they contradict each other in the order in which things are created.  In chapter 1, God created things in this order:

 - plants
 - creatures of the sea and air
 - creatures of the land
 - man and woman together

In chapter 2 he creates them in the following order:

 - man
 - plants, including the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil
 - creatures of the land and air
 - woman

If the Bible is infallible, then both versions must be true.  How can that be?

A question that stumps is beautiful thing .

Different dimensions.

But how did the events of both dimensions get recorded in this one? Are you suggesting that the two dimensions somehow merged together?

I don't see how, but it was a joke honestly, for that very reason.

But because I'm Intangible, this is my response...

Yes, because God is capable of anything, so it's possible. Don't question God.
