According to Genesis 5:3, Humanity died at the age of 930, 695 years after humanity began to call upon the name of the Lord. (Reference the birth of Enosh in 4:26 and 5:6). I love the significance of numbers, though I have never taken the time to figure out exactly what this passage is suggesting. Humanity is obviously still alive today, so what do these numbers signify? I am not sure.
Whew, I have never thought about that. I can't get even a glimmer of an idea I ever heard how they died. I would think, it may be possible, I'm not sure but of old age? Maybe. Possibly. Thank you for something new to think about. :-)
The Bible says Adam lived 930 years and he died "Genesis 5:5 - And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died." Therefore Adam died in the year 930. Nothing is mentioned as to when Eve died.

Adam and Eve are part of the Christian creation myth. All cultures have creation myths as a part of educating small children about their group, which differs in terms of belief system, from other groups. This is an identity thing that worldwide. Adam and Eve weren't real people.
