If you read far enough you will discover
that adam and eve later had other children…who became a people through incest.incest was possible at that age without major repercusions because the virility of the gene pool was very strong being very close from the original mother and father.so basically cain married his sister or distant cousin.
Abel was to marry Cains twin sister and vice versa, but Cain was jealous and killed Abel because he wanted to marry his twin sister and not Abels. Good answer though.
they were the first people but that doesn’t mean they were the last
ALAFU CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME:
According to Biblical scholars, the Garden of Eden story was about 6000 years ago.
But we have human fossils being dug out that are as old as 2.8 million years old.
The big bang happened 13.7 billion years ago.
Homo Sapiens evolved anatomically into the present day man some 200,000 years ago.
But the bible version of the history of creation only goes back a few thousands of years.
I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO WRAP MY HEAD AROUND THIS!!!
When akina Leakey & co. go to Turkana and dig up our ancestors’ bones that are millions of years old, how do we reconcile that to the Garden of Eden timeline?
You have it backwards. Repercussions occur precisely because reproducing within the same gene pool.
But even if you believe there were people other than adam and eve that the bible doesnt mention, when noah come’s around we are told the entire earth was drowned. So the next lot of guys were the result of inbreeding between a couple of brothers and sisters.
just believe the word of God,hio ingine yote ni upuzi
You don’t mix religion with science.
“not only is science corrosive to religion; religion is corrosive to science. It teaches people to be satisfied with trivial, supernatural non-explanations and blinds them to the wonderful real explanations that we have within our grasp. It teaches them to accept authority, revelation and faith instead of always insisting on evidence.” Richard Dawkins.
We dont know @mayekeke. Just the same way we dont know why the sun is 8 light minutes away from earth, and not 12.
If you do know, please tell us.
Adam and Eve is a Hebrew creation myth. It doesn’t mean that all the races of man sprouted from the two.
I’m not a Christian, but does the bible say that God didn’t create other people?
Christians can’t afford to believe in carbon dating.
But we do. You learnt this in secondary school.
what will you say about reincarnation when a chutie tells you, ulikua kale kapaka kao zamani?
But Muslims can… According to Islam the earth is billions of years old, so far science is compatible with Islam.
Your book requires no testing because you believe it is the truth therefore every test will fail. So there’s no need for you to say it’s compatible with science.
