Some time ago I wrote a post under the Banner  “Adam and Eve were Black. They lived in Africa at the same time – but probably never met. ” Adam and Eve

Although there are much more serious subjects to be addressed for some unknown reason this post seems to be popular with my readers.

So let’s have another look.  Did they exist?  Did they meet?  What did they look like?

The Sumerian records reveal that “Adam” and “Eve” were not created by “God”, but rather they were genetically engineered by an advanced race of extraterrestrials called the Anunnaki.

Right so they did exist in alien form. They certainly did not exist in the form of human as we know it.

Leaving us with perhaps the most convoluted puzzle to ever exist, a timeline which pits some of today’s most dominant dogmas, whether scientific or theological, in an unrelenting war against one another.

The history of human civilization and evolution.

As Far as we know life on Earth began more than 3 billion years ago, evolving from the most basic of microbes into a dazzling array of complexity over time – to life in the universe develop from the primordial soup?

The question is :  Did the Garden of Eden exist before this soup.

Genesis puts Adam and Eve together in the Garden of Eden, but geneticists’ version of the duo — the ancestors to whom the Y chromosomes and mitochondrial DNA of today’s humans can be traced — were thought to have lived tens of thousands of years apart.

There is a saying that if you believe in God, you can’t believe in evolution. If you believe in evolution, you can’t believe in God.

According to the scientific knowledge that we have to-day man fell out of a tree, eventually stood up on two legs and walked out of Africa.

Now the problem is Adam was created as a Selfie of God and if he arrived at the time humans evolved (and I mean on offense to God) God would look like an Ape.

However God created Adam using the lowest element of the Earth, the dust. This part of the account of the creation of Adam being made from the dust indicates that man has a thanatos origin (an unconscious urge to die) being made up of the lowest form of the elements.

If ignorance is bliss, than Adam and Eve were the happiest people ever but they were set up by God.

Adam’s primary loyalty is meant to be towards God, while Eve is meant to submit and be loyal to Adam rather than God. For Adam, the constant gaze of the Other is almost maternal; to live without it would be to cease to exist. He just wants things to stay the same. Adam, who was once lifeless, could now move and speak and becomes a living organism that can learn and progress under the direction of with his newly found father, God.

The fact that God created Adam first “suggests that God saw Adam as having a leadership role in his family” (Grudem, 1994).  According to Genesis 2:18 and 2:20, Eve was created to be a helper for Adam.

So was Adam a superior to Eve?

He was created in the image of God, she in the image of man. Adam and Eve are created by the same God and have nature in common, but in some ways nurture separates them. Adam is given the gift of life and the responsibility of caring for God’s creation. Eve is created shortly thereafter as a companion and partner.

At the point of creation they knew no evil. It simply did not exist in their minds. In essence, children lose their innocence following the acquisition of knowledge. Knowledge is a powerful tool.

So why would God put the tree or the fruit or the knowledge of good and evil in their path unless he had wanted them to partake.

“Good and Evil, if they exist at all, are after all two sides of the same state of being.

Life is mapped out with no regard for individual choice while contrary belief tells us that mankind is capable of free will and therefore has control over his own life and the consequences of his actions. So once God has set things in motion, he pretty much exits.

So how does the story of Adam and Eve end?

They (or shall I say “we”) are still evolving.

If we compare the Bible to the Qur’an, we can clearly see that Eve, the mother of all human beings, has a different standing in each book.

Could that be why there has been so much abuse and disregard in the past for women; or why women have never received full equality rights with men, even if they are more qualified?

Do the men within the Christianity faith blame it on Eve?

Is this where Fundamentalism finds its origins.

Fundamentalism: The belief in old and traditional forms of religion, or the belief that what is written in a holy book, such as the Christian Bible, as being completely and literally true.

The Cambridge International Dictionary of English Fundamentalism: a: a movement in 20th century Protestantism emphasizing the literally interpreted Bible as Fundamental to Christian life and teaching; b: the beliefs of this movement; c: adherence t such beliefs.

Webster’s English Dictionary: Fundamentalism is a religious phenomenon which has taken 20th century politics by storm. As defined by Webster’s English dictionary fundamentalism has a direct correlation with Protestant Christianity; however, it has in the past, and is currently, impacting many other forms of religion. Since the 1970’s many religious movements have emerged into political governments and ideologies all over the world.

The dominating religion in Europe is Catholicism; Hinduism is very strong in eastern Asia; Judaism is the ranking religion in Israel and Israeli’s political decision; and finally, Islam is the principal religion in the Middle East.

According to Kepel (1994) all of these religions share the characteristic of challenging the way society is organized: either its secular foundation, or the way it has deviated from a foundation based upon religion, as in the United States for example. When the American government was constructed by its founding fathers, the guidelines for America’s laws and ideas were based on what Biblical principles, Christian values and morals.

Fundamentalism. How far can each be understood as a reaction to liberal-capitalist modernity?  Islam is the second largest religion in the world, second only to Christianity which has been the main religion in the United States and is actually making a strong comeback in America.

The roles of father and son played by God Adam was created on the 6th day..Gods intentions regarding this human capacity is very much in doubt.

Adam is the first man and the father of mankind. He prefigures the human race, representing the perfect male form. Adam is all fathers, sons and brothers rolled into one. Formed in the image of God, he is God-like, but not a God.

He and Eve are illusions, a Dreamboat of Fundamentalism and the original sin.
