That information most likely came from scientists who are trying to make a new story to make money. And Adam only had one wife named Eve.

Yes, this is how scientists make their livings, they make up fake Bible stories and people pay them to hear them. Wait .. no . . that's preachers. Scientists research things like how to cure disease and make energy more efficiently. You know, things that actually help people.

Thank you rghurst! Scientists are not out to destroy religion. They just want to answer questions that religion can't answer. Lets all just relax and stop being so cynical. If god did indeed create us in his/her image, then we were created with powerful brain that have given us the capacity for abstract
thought. We are supposed to think for
ourselves and answer difficult questions.

No. This is a myth like the other and very common. No one with any sense wants to make up this stuff.

Interesting. Some do believe Adam had a wife named Lilleth before Eve. She wanted to be, to put it nicely, the dominant one and Adam wouldn't allow it. So she got really angry and turned into a demon. She was then believed to seek out revenge by sucking the breath out if babies causing them to die. The song "Lullaby and Good night" actually is supposed to be a song mothers sung as protection "Lilleth good bye and good night..." and it became lullaby for short.

NO.... Not in our christian belief. We believe only what is in our Holy Bible. God inspired the writers to write what He told them to write.

Lilith is the mother of demons. Lilith , Medusa , Athena is all the same person.

The moon is her symbol. Did you knew that most higher demons were actually what was refered as the father... The longer the horns, the wiser the demon is.

Everything that is "demonised" in the bible is not directly evil, but it is made as such so that you dont question why things are told to you in such a way!

Then if you ask why, the only answer you will get is because... That's not waht i call Wisdom! That in my book is "Trust me im a doctor".

According to the Genesis account in the Bible Eve was the first woman and only wife of Adam. I'm not sure where the account of Lilith comes from but it's not in the canonized Bible.

There are legends that Adam had a wife before Eve who was named Lilith, but this is not found in the Bible. The legends vary significantly, but they all essentially agree that Lilith left Adam because she did not want to submit to him. This "Lilith" myth is popular in some radical feminist movements because Lilith is an example of a woman refusing to submit to male headship. While there are myths outside of the Word of God regarding Lilith, her complete absence from Scripture demonstrates that she is nothing more than a myth.http://www.gotquestions.org/Lillith.html

In Isaiah 34:14 Lilith is mention. written around 540 B.C. it is the only time Lilith is mentioned. Although not stated it is legend that Lilith was created from the same dust as Adam. Adam was a domineering male and wanted to control reign over Lilith. As Lilith was made from the same dust she considered herself equal and would not be ruled over or controled. She ran from the garden. God sent three angels to retrieve Lilith. Upon she would be a demon(as Lilith is mentioned in the Bible) taking the lives of newborn babies. If an amulet is placed over the babies crib mentioning the three angels she will not enter the home. The legend is thought to be Babylonian in nature.

lilith discovered the truth about god and ran away.

simple, she was too intelligent to blindy fallow suit!

She has bigger horns then adam, she was much wiser... Havn't you remark how in every religious books, the wise are being passed as the heretic for not beleiving? It all go back to submiting and not quationing authority. Obviously Lilith had questions and She understood pretty fast what was happening!

Look today, Most womens are more intelligent and cunning then most mens...
Mens,without judging, are usealy trying to fit in and will do anything to comply!

outside of the bible stories, Snakes are seens as gods,because they are extremly Wise.

Lillith has been mentioned in both the Talmud and the bible but during one of its many edits and revisions, all references to lillith were removed from the bible

The passage most often pointed to as evidence for Lilith is Isaiah 34:14, which in the NRSV reads, "there too Lilith shall repose." This is a poor translation. Every other major translation of the Bible reads something to the effect of "night creature" or "screech owl." Even if "demon monster named Lilith" was the proper translation of the Hebrew word, Adam is nowhere even hinted at in this passage or its context. Whatever the Lilith was, it is not given any connection whatsoever to Adam or Creation.

During the time rome was prosperous, they rewriteen the bible removing All reference to Femelle divinity, portraying the few of them as bad.

leaving only room to male supremacy in the religion.

the father ,the son and the spirit is a lie.
its the father, the child and the mother.
mind body and spirit.

this has nothing to do with god or satan , but simply with post roman time preist class mind control warfare.

ask yourself. In the age we live in. Where Truth is squelch when ever it surface, if the bible is the truth, why is there so many different version? and why are they being encouraged by the elites?

What ever the answer might be, i can tell you for sure that the truth is not in the bible! not anymore.

I questioned the entire issue as a child when I realized that the land where Eden was supposed to have been..
Has NO Adams or Eves... wouldn't that have become a popular name? Much less the Talking Snake!
Since childhood I learned that during the many rewrites of the bible and manipulation of discovered text that became the bible.. much of it was changed or out right deleted for political reasons

The story of Lillith as the second wife of Adam stems from the Talmud. It's Jewish.

Thats not fifficult at all. Lilith is made up by humans. Adam and Eve were the first humans EVER. Lilith is not mentioned in the true Bible at all.

Only mention of Lilith in Bible is at Isaiah 34:14. The Jerusalem Bible says at Isaiah 34:14 "Wild cats will meet hyenas there, satyr will call to satyr, there Lilith too will lurk and find somewhere to rest." Other translations render it as "screech owl", "night-monster", "nightjar" and "night hag". This creature appears in the description of Edom's desolation and regarding the things inhabiting its ruins.

No; Adam was created first then God created Eve. Adam and Eve were the first humans created, the world was populated from these two.
