Well Adam and Eve.. only 2 people.. if they ever excisted... and to populate the world they'd have to get into incest but then again I've also heard they only had 2 kids... 2 sons to be excactl named Kane and Able... so Now I'm really confused as to how they could have excisted... And how they could have grand children...

^ Incorrect. Incest was alright for a time, because...well, how else were more people going to be made? However, all that changed during the time of Moses, when a whoooooole lot of rules were put into place.

ok, im gonna just stop listening to you, because you mentioned a MAKE BELIEVE GARDEN WHERE GOD KICKED 2 HUMANS OUT FOR EATING AN APPLE, BUT THOUGHT FUCKING EACHOTHER (as father and daughter, in a way, eve being made from adam) WAS PERFECTLY FINE.

learn to think for yourself, kid.


Yes... because the Bible can never be taken allegorically. Grow up.

Or, we could look at my post on the previous page and see that Adam and Eve were NOT Father/Daughter. Have we learned nothing from transplants? Getting a part from another human doesn't make the two people related.

Adam and Eve had very many children, if you will notice women arn't mentioned in any leneage in the bible. Also, it is immplied that Adam and Eve had children while in the garden, what do you think God meant by increased pain in child birth, there couldn't be an increased pain if the never had it before. As phoo said incest wasn't considered wrong until the laws were set im place, because back then incest was about procreation no anbout pervertion.

Well Actully they were kinda related cuz they'd have the same DNA. Also Even if that isnt incest All their kids commit incest. That would creat huge problems with the way people are today. Look at royal families from the past they were all inbred and most had some sort of blood problem.

^ While I can appreciate that argument, and do agree that today's society would not accept such practices, please reread both my and williewill's posts. Incest was not wrong until laws were put into place during Moses' time. And having the rib of another person put into you would not give you the same DNA...

Truth is not found in such idle peasantry. A Christian should delve deeper into the spiritual repercussions of the story, not focusing on such petty details.

A Christains job is to spread the Gospel to all nations and live a life fufilling to christ. I believe that if I can shed some light on certain issues of confusion maybe some people will come around. Sorry if this bothers you!

And who says we don't delve deeper? Having a knowledge of such "petty details," as you put it, is necessary to correctly refute arguments such as the ones stated in this topic. Faith, and a relationship with Jesus are the most important factors of being a Christian. However, knowledge about the Bible is helpful in answering questions that other's may have.

This isn't knowledge, it's a farce... you're just letting these poor people wallow in their ignorance of Christian theology. Tell them something meaningful, or they'll just continue to mock you.
