The first Adam and the first Eve ?
Actually it would be the most recent Adam, not the first.
The most recent (male) common ancestor to all living humans.
Yep, that's what people aren't understanding when this is discussed,
IF there was a massive extinction event, and say two Members survive of ATS and meet up, they Continue humanity.
200,000 years past, they are now the "genetic" adam and eve, because they where the only remaining subset of successful genes that would of than
gone on to repopulate the gene pool with their very specific remaining dna.
There would still be a rich genetic history that would of than been lost due to that original event, this could of happen several times, and most
recently with the Toba event, the last human genetic bottle neck.
