IF adam and even were actually a true story.... THIS would be what the world would look like...
I appreciate your faith brother... but Adam and Eve are just a myth, and believing they were real is pompous and irresponsible as you put it... Akin
to believing a talking snake or donkey existed... It just doesn't make logical sense

In my opinion, Genesis is probably the only book of the bible that actually has some truth in it. Jesus is most definitely a myth, his words which
you enjoy so much were most likely a collection of tales and wise sayings collected from the gnostics, hebrews, egyptians and some other pagan sects
around at that time.
Genesis does not say that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman. In Genesis 4;16-17 Cain was sent away from his family into the land of Nod.
Where he slept with his wife, who is previously not mentioned - but whom must have dwelt in the land of Nod. Adam and Eve were not the first, they
were simply those who had been created directly and 'in the image of' the one who created them.
In Genesis 6 we see that the creator is not alone, an individual - neither is the host of the 'Lord' incorporeal. To the contrary - 'the sons of
god saw the daughters of men, that they were fair; and took them wives of all they chose.'
This is not the story of an all powerful creator, this is the story of a host of beings who came to the earth for purposes unknown. In the meantime
they genetically engineered Adam and Eve, and recorded all their offspring.
The flood story is repeated across the earth, wherever ancient myth and tales are recorded. There is clear evidence that Noah's Ark existed, and
lies on Mt Doomsday, in the Ararat mountains in Turkey - the anchor stones lie at the foot of the mountain near a village curiously named 'The
Village of Eight' (usually interpreted as referring to the eight passengers on the Ark). What caused the flood is unknown, and it cannot be assumed
that it was caused by 'god' - it may have just occurred, though Noah was warned of it. It is also interesting to note that many ancient peoples
record that they were warned of the flood - so the idea that it was Noah alone who survived is not well supported at all.
There are certainly some elements of truth in the old testament - but it would be unwise to try and read any of it in a literal sense.
