What a stupid story. Two people are magically created and everyone is punished because they eat an apple.
I respect people's right to believe what they want to believe, but...wow...
That story takes the cake when it comes to fairy tales.
As for incest, it's true. There would have had to be incest, pretending for the sake of this conversation that it actually happened.
"Adam and Eve" weren't brother and sister (I guess), so that's not incest. So they can give birth to as many kids as they want. But at some point when they die, their children are going to have to give birth to keep the human population around. That's when it becomes incest, because who the hell else do they have to have sex with?
It's all stupid if you ask me.
Adam and Eve is as laughable as "Noah's Ark". But if you people believe it..well, good for you.

So the point is we can't really say if we are all related or not, because everyone has their own version of how this all went down,,,i was taught that adam and eve were the only 2 people, and whenever i asked the questions...i was told to not take the bible to literally,,,but in esence the bible has been added to and changed so much who knows what is true and what is not...
some people today still are being taught in sunday schools that adam and eve were the only 2 ppl...point being, the bible makes no sense whatsoever and should be taken with a grain of salt..if to be believed at all..
the theory of evolution makes alot more sense if u ask me!

On the subject of Adam and Eve, you can also trace it back to the Sumerian.
I'm surprised at this for two reasons. 1) That there are people who actually believe this to be true, ie, that the bible has anything to do with the founding fathers or the constitution, and 2) that this thread went on for almost 2 pages afterward without anyone calling you on it.
