Some people who call themselves Catholics say a man named Adam. I am a practicing catholic and i want to be clear THE BIBLE IS NOT TO BE TAKEN LITERALLY. The bible is symbolic of many things. If we took it literally we'd be saying that Adam and Eve were the first people on the Earth and they populated it...by having two sons?! I'm a Roman Catholic and im telling you all: ITS SYMBOLIC! ask any priest they'll back me up.
Adam was the first man and Eve was the first women but Adam was made before Eve so practically he is the first person was made but then both them brought down to earth at once. This is a message to us all that life of human race was founded by a man and a women they both been through a lot together none of them could survive alone. Hola @ all the males living this earth although you guy's drive us crazy most of the time :p
When did the first true homo sapiens became separate from his/her lower primate ancestors? That was not a moment in time, but a period of time, those primitive men, possibly, had an also primitive language, and simple names. Such languages and names have been lost to history. No way of telling what names they applied to each other, nor to tell at what point they were truly men versus their longer armed cousins. I find your question a bit contentious, even trollish.
