Could it be possible that Adam and Eve were not the first humans? You believe they are because a man named Moses, born in Egypt two thousand, four hundred and thirty-three years after the creation of Adam said they were.
If you believe the Bible, you then believe all humans are from Adam and Eve. But is that true? Well it is not true if you believe your Bible when it plainly states they were not.
There it is, in the first chapter of the Bible. We do not know the names of the FIRST Man and Woman, but they were the FIRST humans created by God. If you believe your Bible.
In the same 1st chapter you are told, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good….” And then you are told “God rested and was pleased.” This FIRST Man and Woman were not kicked out of Gods sight. No, God was ‘very pleased’ with them. So that right there tells you Adam and Eve were NOT the first creation.
Adam and Eve
Genesis 2 has a completely different story to tell. Many scholars now believed Moses did not write Genesis 2. In fact it is a popular belief among the scholars that there were possibly 5 different writers of Genesis.
No matter who wrote Genesis 2, that man named Adam was made from dust. A meaning for dust is, ‘something of no worth.’ Think about that. You have God and he wants to use dust, dust that has ‘no worth’ to made a man. Or Eve who was made from a rib, is telling you that she too was NOT made in Gods image and likeness. And this man, Adam and this woman Eve did not please God like the first man and woman did.
So it would seem as though there were two creators. One God who was pleased with his creation and one god that was not. And it would seem that those who believe the God of Genesis 2 are today still trying to please god. They beg, plead, promise to be good if only this God would help them. But it seems this angry God enjoys the suffering of his worthless creation. Worthless because he used dust to make man.
Do you wonder what happened to the FIRST creation of man? Or is it just easier to not even think about it and do as all the others do….worship the 2nd God? A God who created you from dust and thinks you are worthless?
One last thought… If you believe all mankind comes from Adam and Eve, what color was Adam? What color was Eve? Yellow? Black? Red? Brown? White? No matter what the color of Adam and Eve’s skin, wouldn’t all mankind be in at least the same color range? With more or less the same facial features?
So first God created a Male and Female and He was pleased with them. Then for some reason He forgets about the FIRST good Man and Woman and decides to make two more. But this time he makes a man and woman who He is NOT pleased with. If God is All Knowing, why would He make a man and woman he would stay angry with for thousands of years? Doesn’t make any sense at all.
