Vadim, this is not an exegetical question, but the answer, for me and
millions of others (Jews, Christians and maybe others) the answer is
"yes". Not that I take this too literally. And then, if you think about
it, modern science also teaches that people and animals are formed from
earth, from elements taken from earth, although God is generally left out.

What would you have formed people and animals from, if (God forbid) you
were God?
