Who wrote Genesis?

So many people say that the Holy Bible was just written by men without the intervention of God and so they do not believe that the Holy Bible is the Word of God. The Holy Bible is composed of 66 books written by about 40 men in different places during different times. Sixty-six books are so many so we just first concentrate on one book - GENESIS. GENESIS is the first book of the Holy Bible. It starts in the beginning... and the last chapter tells of the death of Israel then Joseph in Egypt. To make it clearer, here are some information: First man - Adam 2nd generation - Seth 3rd " - Enos 4th " - Kainan 5th " - Maleleel 6th " - Iared 7th " - Enoch 8th " - Mathousala 9th " - Lamech 10th " - Noe 11th " - Sem 12th " - Arphaxad 13th " - Kainan 14th " - Sala 15th " - Eber 16th " - Phalek 17th " - Rhagau 18th " - Serouch 19th " - Nachor 20th " - Thara 21st " - Abram (to Abraham) 22nd " - Isaak 23rd " - Iakob (or Israel) Mouses started to be mentioned only from the book of EXODUS. Therefore, to those who do not believe in God and the Holy Bible as the Word of God, who is the author of the book of GENESIS?

Since time immemorial, nobody has acknowledged or claimed that the book of Genesis is his creation or he is the author of said book. If God has created the entire vast universe including man, is it impossible for Him to create this little book compared to the intricate wonderful creation of God that we see around and beyond the contemplation of man?

Of course, God is the author of Genesis. Accordingly, Genesis was written through Moses. There's nothing impossible with God and so He might have Moses to write these as in Exodus, God commanded Moses to write. God might have commanded Moses to write also the beginnings. All is possible to God and all of these are the work of God.

Many years and generations have passed and no one dared to claim authorship of the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible. This must be another proof of the power of God. There's nothing impossible with God and so He can do this or perhaps let his servant Moses to do it. God is wonderful really and we should be grateful to Him.
