Those who painted, sculpted, drew pictures of Christ, Adam & Eve etc. were white, so they created what was in their minds eye. If you look closely at many paintings, you'll see that they're all wearing AirJordans
i saw that adam and eve were hispanic like me, then as time progressed 1/3 of us turned white, another 1/3 stayed the same and the other 1/3 turned black. (I dont really believe this but i sure some do:P)
No one was white back then evryone was brown,cause the continets did not seperate untill around kane n able days, and kane was cast out to the cochkus mountains where white people emerged from,blacks n all brown people are sons of abraham, white people are sons of kane, sorry to say but true im irish
They weren't white. Idk where you got that from. God made them from dust, do they were the color of dust. And God separated the world in different continents and languages in the old testiment because we all cake together trying to build something together to reach heaven. So God established different ethnicities and languages and lived in different parts of the world. Obviously blacks or darker skinned people were near the Equator and lighter/white people were from Europe or above the Equator.
Adam and Eve weren't any color mostly because they didn't exist. It's a myth. There were no first people. Or else there were lots of "first people" who were all descended from other "first hominid" species. See: Darwin.
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7 KJV)===============================In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. (Genesis 3:19 KJV) ||||||||||||||||||| Well there's your answer, in the (((dust))).
Who said they were white? No one is white, black, yellow, or red. We're all different shades of brown. There's a pigment in your skin called melanin. The amount of melanin in your skin determines how dark or light your skin will be. If you have a lot of melanin, you will have dark skin (what is commonly called "black"). If you have a little, you'll have light skin (or "white"). It's logical to assume that Adam and Eve were medium brown, because they they would have had the genetic diversity necessary to produce all shades that we see today.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. - Zack
The rigorous lack of intellectual dishonesty expressed by theists should give you some insight into how accurate there accounts of the universe are. "How do you know they're not blue?" Please. They avoid this question because to assign a skin color to these characters is to admit that the bible does not tell all of the story. If they were black how do we have white? etc.. We all know what you meant- but some of us need disgraceful voluntary ignorance to continue lying to ourselves.
In the origin of our world God made Adam and eve perfect and has an immortal body that doesn't experience death and we don't know what's the color of our skin but God created them perfect and design them in beauty not by random chance. and He created the world in an instant of His might, because if you say beyond less that you would underestimating God's ability and divine. the answer is in the bible and if you want to ask about it go to this web: www.amazingfacts.org i hope this may help for those who seek sincerely the answer.

What explains the development of the various racial characteristics? “All men living today belong to a single species, Homo sapiens, and are derived from a common stock. . . . Biological differences between human beings are due to differences in hereditary constitution and to the influence of the environment on this genetic potential. In most cases, those differences are due to the interaction of these two sets of factors. . . . Differences between individuals within a race or within a population are often greater than the average differences between races or populations.”—An international body of scientists convened by UNESCO, quoted in Statement on Race (New York, 1972, third ed.), Ashley Montagu, pp. 149, 150 ( Rest of answer in comments)

If you can think of God as the "environment", then the environment (hot, cold, rainy, dry, sunshine, kinds of food, predators, prey, germs, etc) forces survival of the fittest. If the environment does not change much, then there won't be much changes in the people that live there since there is no need to improve what already is sufficient for that environment. When people migrated north, their skin color had to become lighter so that they could get enough vitamin D. Those with a darker skin did not survive as well as those with lighter skins. Finally, those who survive and thrive will tell the history and religious myths from their point of view, not those of the ones that did not survive.
i do not believe that color is a matter, if people still believe that color is still a thing, well they are still growing up. And to answer your question, who cares what color adam and eve were, we are human and that is what matters
Scientists have traced ALL of the human species down to one black female so it's not a question of where black people came from since black people were the first people on earth, it's a question of where white people came from and I would say that changes in weather condition caused our genes to express itself differently. I heard on a t.v. show that genes have potentials and not just expressions, the potentials are traits that might turn on or turn off depending on how the environmental factors affect the species. So two birds with exactly the same genes living in two different places will look different when they finally come out... only a fraction of our actual genetic make up is expressed... the rests exists in this chaotic grey matter and functions as "switches" genes which may or may not turn on depending on how the environment affects it.
