Man created "outside" of the garden?

Postby Abiding in His Word on Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:52 am

Gen 2:7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Gen 2:8 The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed.

God planted a garden and that's where He put the man? So the man was formed from the dust prior to a garden being planted? Does that literally mean Adam was formed outside the garden?

yea evidently
Isaiah 40:31 But those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

No indication where man was made, just the components were the dust of the earth.
Implications are animals were placed in the garden as well.
Also, It is "unknown" if man could have survived outside the garden shortly after his creation;
After the fall, we know he could, with toil, survive outside the garden.
