Adam didn't make woman God did. God said it's not good for man to be alone aka All One. Adam was male & female as God is. So therefore he put Adam to sleep, took the rib & made Eve. It is a fact that women have an extra rib.
Primitive people of bronze age Palestine (and they were primitive even by bronze age standards) didn't know about DNA, and had no really idea of where mankind came from.
...so they made up stories. Just like every primitive culture did. There are hundreds of origin stories from around the world. They are all just as silly as each other. The real mystery is why anybody still gives any credence to this one!
It's amazing that people will use iPads and laptops, amazing inventions which allow us to communicate instantly around the world... proof that science works! And they use them to dismiss science in favour of a book written by people living in mud huts in an age of ignorance.
Adam didnt do it, God did. God can do anything He chooses. He invented DNA. He can do what He likes with it. Adam was made from dirt which certainly didnt start out with all the complicated DNA humans have. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING is possible for God.
If one is to accept that all humans came from two people as told in the Bible, don't even bother trying to apply science to that story since science does not support the story from the get-go. It is an exercise in futility. It's like saying, "Since we know that Santa Clause brings gifts to homes all around the world, how does he do it in one night and without being seen?" The question that must first be asked and answered is, "Is Santa Clause real?"
Adam and Eve is one of the many tall stories of the Bible. I believe more in the evolution of man then a story. Once Noah came with his arch and everything died except for the people on the arch So that would indicate that the circle of life would have to start again. Never heard about that in catholic school or church
After more than a century since Darwin, we have discovered thousands of fossils of animals no humans ever believed existed. Traced our roots back millions of years. Discovered how the continents moved, and how old the Earth actually is. The scientific evidence has been astounding and truly redefined what it means to be human and be alive. Which brings us to creationism. The story of Adam and Eve has somehow survived thousands of years and even with all this evidence, some still deeply believe this unbelievable fairy tale. The main point of my argument though, is a question to even moderate Christians. With science proving the true way we came to be, this proves that Christianity is wrong. Most modern Christians have chose to believe in evolution but the truth is that Adam and Eve is the source of the Christian religion. Saints concluded after Jesus's death that he died for our sins. The sins of Adam and that have been passed down to every generation since Adam. But if Adam and Eve is just a story, that would mean Jesus was killed by Romans and nothing more came from it. This the entire point of Jesus being a savior, and Christianity and general, are based on a story that we have already disproved.
rrobles is right on target: Using the Bible and the latest information about DNA can prove that life descended from a common ancestor. FACTS AND QUESTION? 1 # Fact: DNA is packaged within the chromosomes in a manner so efficient that it has been called a "feat of engineering" Packing the DNA into the nucleus is an amazing feat of engineering-- like packing 24 miles of very fine thread into a tennis ball. QUESTION: How could such order and organization Rise by undirected chance events? #2 FACT: DNA's capacity to store information still had no equal in today's computer age. QUESTION: If human computer technicians cannot achieve such results how could mindless matter so do on its own? #3. FACT: DNA contains all the instructions needed to build a unique human body and maintain it throughout life. Question: how could such writing come about without a writer, such programming without a programmer?? FACT: For DNA to work, it has to be copied, read, and proofread by a swarm of complex molecular machines called enzymes, which must work together with precision and split - second timing. Question; Do you believe that highly complex, highly reliable machinery can come about by chance? Without solid proof, would not such a belief amount to blind faith?? The Origin of life. Five questions worth asking. #1 How did life begin? #2 Is any form of life really simple? #3 Where did the instruction come from? # 4 Has life descended from a common ancestor? #5 Is it reasonable to believe the Bible?
