Allah taught Adam all the names, down to fart and little fart.

Tabari I:267 "And He [Allah] taught Adam all the names as follows: He taught him the name of everything, down to fart and little fart." And Adam told each kind of creature about its name and referred it to its genus. Allah said, 'I know what you do not know.'" No kidding. You're pretending to be god. "If we [angels] are not better than Adam is, we are at least more knowledgeable because we existed before him, and the nations were created before him."

1) How could the nations have been created before the first man?

2) Why did Tabari make it a point to mention that Allah taught Adam fart and little fart?
a) How does one say "little fart"?
b) Did Allah want to make sure that Adam knew that if some one made a little hadath, he would have to restart prayer?

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah does not accept prayer of anyone of you if he does Hadath (passes wind) till he performs the ablution (anew)." Sahih Bukhari 9:86:86
