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.
On Earth .. No.. There wasn't a Earth.. Jesus wasn't per say human .. But read this.. 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)
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.

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...
