Gave me the idea to see what some other people thought about it!
How about this for an idea...
The story of Adam and eve is an allegory to cellular bacteria splitting and multiplying. (Cellular miosis)
Adam was created, from Adam's rib Eve was created.
Basically the story in cellular division. To reproduce, the cells split. From a part of Cell 'A' or Adam, Cell 'E' or Eve is created.
Then they go on to divide and reproduce etc.
I dont believe in the Bible as a literal account. So thats how I've always viewed the Adam and Eve story.
Is it possible that there was some early scientific knowledge that could have influenced the Adam and Eve story?
