Am I right in assuming that Adam and Eve were using leaves for toilet paper?

The Bible doesn't exactly specify about it. Also, was there such a thing as poison ivy back then....because that could have been bad.....8)

You would ask this NAFTA :P lol. I assume they used soft leaves.

Was there poison ivy in the Garden of Eden? I think God would have provided them with something a little less itchy.

This sort of touches on another question I have.....where did AIDS come from? Was it sent by God as a punishment for being promiscuous, or did the devil send it so there could be a debate on the topic?

Eewwie nafta what the heck. :P I have thought that thats a good health reason why it's better to have one partner, aside from the moral and religious reasons. Maybe that's just one of the "natural" punishments.
Report as
This is why I struggle daily to believe that there is a God....I mean, what the heck?!?! Why would a supposed loving deity send such a scourge?? Things just never seem to make sense when the "big picture" is looked at. And when I hear the word "natural" it tends to lead me back to the whole evolution thing.....I don't know.....these are just the thoughts that flow through my head daily, and you people get to be witness to'em.....8)

Lol, that's ok! I don't know everything, and I certainly cannot claim as to be completely certain as to why we have diseases, but I think that the commandments were designed to make us happy. I mean, there is an emotional aspect to that sort of intamcy; I have seen many younger teens hurt because they give themselves up completely, which brings attacthment and the guy usually ditches them. I think its better to stick to one person. I mean, you could always argue if people were smarter with protection their wouldn't be as many diseases, but that posses a risk factor as well. I don't know, I definatly don't have all the answers!

Well, I'm glad we're on the same page of not knowing anything....8) LMAO!!
I'm gonna take off now, I'm finally gonna watch Hotel Transylvania....we'll see how it turns out, I heard mixed reviews, basically just like the disease topic....8)

Who told you that?
Report as
Well, Heaven is an awesome places where there will be no gross stuff like urine, gas, etc.
Report as
Were does the Bible say that?
Report as
I'm not a Christian.
Report as
So... Non-Christians study the Bible all the time.
Report as
Well, I'm a Muslim, which means I follow the Qur'an.
Part of what Islam taught me about Heaven is that there will be no wastes there. For example, no urine, poop, gas, etc.
Report as
Will you eat in heaven?
Report as
Yes.
I know the next question will probably be: "Then how will it get digested?"
So the answer to that is: Our food will get digested through sweat, which btw will smell like perfume in heaven.
Report as
The Qur'an says that?! lol That is scientifically impossible. And you can't sweat fiber...where does that go?
Report as
God created science.
Anyways, anything is possible in heaven. Anything you wish for will come true right away...
Report as
I know very well that god created science. But He also created bowels.....
God is not a vending machine.
Report as
I can back you up by saying when you're in heaven, you're immortal; immortals don't die or need food or water...
Report as
Heaven is different.
Besides, what shaylen said is true. Technically, we won't need food or water. I forgot to mention that. BUT, just for enjoyment I guess, we can and will eat there (even though we'll never get hungry there or feel like we ate too much, no matter how much we eat.)

Well, "old timey" people used leaves/sticks for that, I'd guess that was progressive, but still not as old as the two of them would have been. I would assume Adam and Eve used the back side of their hands
(Some still do)

Can you imagine how many times you would have to "wipe" with a stick???
Report as
And with a stick you wouldn't really be able to tell when you're all done
Report as
You'd have to look at it really closely......"oh, there's still a few chunks".......OR someone would have to be there to look if you needed to wipe more.......
Report as
Yeah, I'm glad I didn't live when people used sticks lol

Most likely they used leaves..yes. The way I figure, because the leaves of the poison ivy plant aren't that large, accidentally wiping with them would not have been much of an issue. lol But yeah...that would have been bad...oh man, soooo bad!!! O_O
