Who was the human being alive on Earth at the beginning of time?

Apparently It was Andaman Eve!

Report as

SamCreamer has it right. There were NO humans at the beginning of time - it took BILLIONS of years for hominids to emerge and evolve into Homo sapiens. Genetic tests done on a hundred people in New York city showed they had come from all around the globe, yet every single one could be traced back to Africa. The fascinating thing was that there actually WAS a scientific Adam and a scientific Eve that we all carry in our genes. The quandary is these two are separated in time by several thousand years, so it doesn't do much for the traditional version of truth. If Adam had Eve made from one of his ribs, they would have had no genetic diversity, so their offspring would have died out within ten generations. Sorry about that. folks. God was a lot smarter than the Bible gives him credit for....

Well that depends who you ask, if you ask any scientist or professor, they will tell you there were no humans at the beginning of time, which is what I personally believe to be true. If you ask religious people, the answers will be different. The main difference is they have literally no proof to defend their arguments and while some scientific theories (like the theory of the big bang) have yet to be proven, at least they have evidence to support their cause, which is why I choose to believe in that.

Some may argue that the bible isn't 100% accurate
Report as
Well it is 100% true where I come from
Report as
it doesn't matter where you come from, as long as you're a human being on planet earth the truth is the same. I'm not saying I know the truth, but I am saying that you don't know the truth either. It is wise to explore other possibilities and seek answers

God is the answer

That is so ignorant, AT LEAST be open to the fact that MAYBE it's not the case, instead of blindly ignoring all factual evidence and reasonable theory.
Report as
It's not ignorant its the truth and I don't want to be open to lies
Report as
I don't know if you're trying to be funny or if you're trying to be serious. Have you ever questioned anything in your life? I'm not trying to be rude, but a wise and intelligent individual will question and not just blindly believe. If it comforts you to believe in god, then I'm happy for you. But do not devote your life to it, because you're restricting yourself of your full potential (in my opinion).
Report as
I am being serious and yes, that WAS rude!
Report as
And I WILL devote my life to it because it is the truth
Report as
You don't know if it's the truth. I know you don't know it's the truth because I don't know the truth and you don't have super powers. If you do have super powers that I don't please notify me on how I can obtain some.
Report as
It's called faith!
Report as
Oh and a book called the Bible
Report as
Faith is one thing, and if your claim is that you have faith and don't care for proof that's fine. But do NOT claim it's the truth because that is rude to the people who dedicate their lives to hard work and education to prove that which is real and seek answers to the millions of questions we face in our universe.
Report as
In your other comments someone said something about faith and the Bible and you said fair enough but you have to be rude to me?!
Report as
Alright I'm sorry the argument is done. You have your beliefs I have mine, let us call it a day. To clarify, I said fair enough because he simply stated that those were his beliefs, and never once tried telling me it was the truth.
Report as
Ok, I'm done btw, you never said you were sorry for being rude (I am sorry of I was rude to you)
Report as
I meant sorry for being rude in my previous post, sorry if it was unclear. Debates of this subject can get heated, and I apologize if I took it over the top

Im on sams side. The problem with christians is that they were raised to believe what they do, and then when someone else like sam tries to offer another, much more logical and reasonable possibility, they dont even consider it. My gfs a christian and i tried to explain evolution to her. I told her how we learned about Darwin and his research in school and she kept saying things like "Well how do you know he was right?", when i was explaining that he spent his life researching it and there could be no other explaination for what he observed. She basically refused to believe what i was saying. Like i said, christians cling to their beliefs and shut out everything else without consideration.
Report as
Well you science believers don't consider that the world is so unexplainable and awesome that there MUST be an intelligent creator!
Report as
Thanks Luigi. It's not that I am a science believer and not a religious believer. I am open minded, I have considered and lived both sides of this. But I think it's a sign of intelligence in a person to seek proof and understanding, but that's just my opinion. That's the reason I'm a believer in science. @awesome, the world is NOT inexplicable, science is in the process of discovering and explaining, which is what we believe in. Have you ever walked along a sidewalk and seen a little plant growing in between a bit of concrete? That is NATURE working, nature is SO awesome and so powerful that it will grow and change forever and has done so for as long as we can study.

Even in theology, humans weren't there at the beginning of time. In the christian religion, it says in Genesis that God created things before humans, and therefore time ran before humans.

At the beginning of time not only were there no humans on Earth, there wasn't even an Earth, there was no Sun, and no galaxy. There weren't even atoms or nuclei.

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. (Colossians 1:13-18 NKJV)

And you forget to mention there are 2 billion Christians but 5 billion non-Christians, and that many Christians actually have the sense to study science. My own PhD advisor in grad school is a very devout man, but a scientist, and of course he separates his science from his faith. But the more meaningful response is this: why don't you find the majority of those who actually know something about it? Say those with just one college level course in biology?

I'll go with Christ..
Reject Christ all you want to.. That's fine with me.. You'll get your chance to reject him to his face , but calling the New Testament mere slogans show a blind ignorance to the contrary
That's like calling the Torah nonsense to slight Judaism..
Complete nonsense on your part

At the very beginning of time there were only the heavens, the earth, and God. Genesis 1:1 says "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." That was in the beginning. However, six days later God created Adam. Genesis 1:26 says "And then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..." The Hebrew word for the first man is "adam," which becomes a proper name, Adam. Well, after Adam named the animals in Genesis 2, God made Eve out of Adam's rib. Adam and Eve were the first two people on earth. Since they were made in the first week of creation, the statement that they were there "from the beginning" (Mark 10:6).

I realize that this is a "science question" and I am liable to be criticized for answering from a biblical perspective. So to all of you who plan on calling me a lunatic, I am more than prepared to defend my belief.

Hope this helps - Zack

Eh, for the simple minded people, there was a pair of human in the beginning of humanity, not the beginning of Terraformation. Adam and Eve. Logic, right?!
We should analyze and study every existing paper(Bibles) throughout the world, from Mayan through the Vatican to the Japonic Culture, from Eskimos to penguins, down south.
Let's read what do everyone of them say, and check the common things, turning the solution into hte 21st century 'language'.
It is that simple.

There is speculation that there was another female before Eve. Her name was Lilith. Lilith was a free spirit and all around bad girl and defied God. She bolted and ran because she didn't want to be subservient to Adam. Whether it's true or not, who knows...
