Why does a Bash command return "is a directory"?

When I follow the steps for starting a new Cordova PhoneGap project for Eclipse (following these directions), I drag Android's /bin directory to the Terminal window first (which contains the create script), then type in:

./create /Users/Steve/Documents/PhoneGap_apps/PhoneGap_apps/appName2 com.companyname.appName2 appName2

... to create the project.

But what I get in return is:

-bash: /Users/Steve/Downloads/phonegap-phonegap-8a3aa47/lib/android/bin: is a directory

The appName2 directory is not created.

Why do I get that "is a directory" notice, and how do I resolve it to create the directory?
