If we consider that God took a part of Adam to create Eve, and that its considered ''incest'', does that mean that when we'll come to make clones from one another (like the science seem to go), nobody will be able to marry each other?

If Adam represented all of mankind, the Bible wouldn't say that he lived 930 years and then died.
1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

Lilith was the first women mentioned in the bible, not Eve. Her story is left out of the Christian version but is still alive in Jewish teachings.

This just goes to show that this guy is an abomination to the scientific community. Whether you agree with him or not is beyond the point. The point is that Adam and Eve could be proven to exist at some point, but it could never be proven that they didn't exist. Scientists are bound by a strict code, and this code strictly forbids claiming opinions as fact, which is exactly what this man is doing based on the criteria I described in the third sentence of this post. 1. Adam and Eve could, theoretically, be proven to exist. 2. Adam and Eve's existence cannot be disproven. 3. Saying that Adam and Eve never existed is not a fact. 4. What this man is saying is therefore an opinion.

I see. Well, just got to wait a couples of years, when archeologists will dig there, and see if we find Adam and Eve body. It will solve alot of questions.

As for Adam and Eve, after the first 'failure', or, rather, the establishing the reality of the conflict between ego (cain) and self nullification (Abel), Eve has another son (this time, rightly, she doesn't say she 'acquired' or "created" a son, but rather, that God has GIVEN her a son. The sphere of manifestation disclaims all credit for life, acknowledging herself as being contingent on the Universal) which she calls Sheth (meaning 'established') who was made in the image of Adam. Adam, again, is androgynous, meaning, he combines both aspects, both masculine and feminine within him; just as he was made in the image of his creator, Seth was made in the image of Adam. This mean's man must neither be too inclined to the egoistic or the self transcendent, but must be 'established' in both planes.

plus comments like this is unacceptable.
"My life would be much easier if I didn't have to go into bat for . . . Christian principles," he said. Cardinal Pell then mused that he sometimes wondered if he should regret his life's work, before asserting: "No, no."

I'm not the most religious guy. In fact, religion repulses me. But, I do have faith. And all I can say about this charlatan is; 'false prophet'. Anybody who knows anything about Christianity will know what I'm getting at.

Adam and Eve never existed.
How this is news to anyone is mind boggling and hilariously sad.
Welcome to reality, religious sheep.
