After thinking about my old thread about Adam and Eve a number of other questions have popped into my head. These aren't from some website, they're questions I came up with myself. Ok, so God created Adam from dust and Eve from a rib and they were both adults when they were created according to Genesis. Somehow they know how to speak a language which Eve apparently spoke when she was having a conversation with the talking serpant. This even happens on page 2 in Genesis so right off the bat the fall of mankind takes place and Adam and Eve are kicked out of the garden of eden. So my first question is this, how do Adam and Eve know about sex? Neither of them had even seen a baby or a child because there weren't any and yet Eve becomes pregnant and gives birth to Cain. Now how does Eve understand what it means to be pregnant and who delivers the baby? In fact how would they even know what a baby was?

Strap yourself and your computer down. The absurdity of the answers you will receive may result in you jumping up and down and going off on a Lewis Black type rant and/or throwing your PC out the window.

Here's your answer: Adam and Eve never existed, and these events never happened.

This ought to be fun. Similar questions have popped into my mind too! Usually while in church! : )

Easy. All the good things needed to enable the above events were due to god, and the bad stuff due to satan/man/woman/serpant.

Well, if God created Adam from dust and Eve from Adam's rib, then I'm sure it wouldn't be hard for a baby to be delivered. Adam could have delivered the baby. I mean Adam wasn't dumb from what I read in the bible. He worked, and He also named the animals.

Adam was placed in the garden but it does not say who taught Adam how to work. So, it was only God and Adam. So, it must have been God who taught Him.

God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply. So, if Adam and Eve didn't know what that meant then why would God saw it. So, God either gave them the instinct to understand sex or they were taught.

There were alot of things that Adam and Eve must have learned from God, because they were the only humans that was created at that time. How did they learn how to talk, or walk, or speak, learn how to eat, work. It must have been God. If God can create a human, then it want be hard for Him to teach them.

Gen3:8 Says that Adam and Eve heard the sound of the Lord God walking. Meaning He was walking toward them. So, this leads me to think that if God is walking toward them, then I'm sure that is not their first time spending time with Him and I'm sure that if God was with them, He taught them things.

MG,

These are my thoughts, none of them biblical...

Human desire for sex seems to be pretty instinctual, no real instruction needed. Once a woman is pregnant and it is time for that baby to be born, there is once again, no instruction necessary. Sure, an epidural would be a nice touch, but that baby will be born without any further help.

Adam didn't deliver any children. The children had to have been delivered by Adam's cocubines.

I agree about it being instinctual. It's one of the most basic natural functions there is, no instruction book or man in white coat needed.

I have always had this thought about Adam and Eve though, if Eve was made from Adam's rib then they would be genetically identical so wouldn't Eve have had XY chromosomes instead of XX making her male?

Maybe there is a case for Adam and Steve after all

Adam and Eve were not the first humans on earth. The bible tells you that but it's not true. They came thousands of years after the first humans evolved. The garden was actually made for them by other humans so that when they got here, all they had to do was take care of it.
Their children were delivered by midwives.
From what I have read and understand, pain was not something that they endured bacause they were pure. After the fall is when they began to experience the animalistic instincts and tendencies.
