We have come to know that Christian's claim that Adam and Eve are our Parents according the Bible or Biblical account. But there is a secret in Christianity that the Christians, the Priests, the Fathers, the Nuns, Catholics, Mormons, or even the Pope will not address in accordance to Biblical text or scripture. It's not actually obvious until you actually attempt to read the bible using commonsense, reason, and logic. But before I disclose this little secret, I will first outline the gist of the story of Adam and eve.:
Genesis 1:27 briefly states concerning humankind “male and female he [God] created them,” the parallel account at Genesis 2:7-9 shows that God formed man out of the dust of the ground, blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul, for whom a paradise home and food were provided.
In this case Jehovah used the elements of the earth in creative work and then, having formed man, He created the female of humankind using one of Adam’s ribs as a base. (Ge 2:18-25) With the creation of the woman, man was complete as a “kind.”—Ge 5:1, 2.
Now we are going to pretend here, just to play along, and assume all this be true.. Yes, we will just assume it for sake of argument even though it's pretty funny that man comes from dust and a woman comes from Adams Rib. The interesting part is that they are considered your ancient Mother and Father. The two primal seeds of humanity. This to which leads to a little secret often attempted to be deflected with apologetics to which have no basis in the actual biblical account. So what is it? Well, let's ask in the form of a simple question:
HOW DID ADAM AND EVE's CHILDREN HAVE CHILDREN?
So the question is how does the rest of humanity derive from Adam and Eve if their only children that can be accounted for without speculation in the story were Abel Seth, and Cain?.. All males.. However the bible was edited later on to say Adam and Even lived hundreds of years (yes they want you to believe this to) and bore more unspecified, and unnamed children to which there is zero record of in the Hebrew texts, or in any tangible form. But even if we assume that be true... What we have here is a Reproductions end without incest! No biblical flood needed as the human species would not have made it passed Abel, Seth and Cain. Especially when Cain Kills Abel. And incest also means a genetic disaster.
Incest that results in offspring is a form of close inbreeding (reproduction between two individuals with a common ancestor). Inbreeding leads to a higher probability of congenital birth defects because it increases that proportion of zygotes that are homozygous, in particular for deleterious recessive alleles that produce such disorders. Because most such alleles are rare in populations, it is unlikely that two unrelated marriage partners will both be heterozygous carriers. However, because close relatives share a large fraction of their alleles, the probability that any such rare deleterious allele present in the common ancestor will be inherited from both related parents is increased dramatically with respect to non-inbred couples. Contrary to common belief, inbreeding does not in itself alter allele frequencies, but rather increases the relative proportion of homozygotes to heterozygotes. However, because the increased proportion of deleterious homozygotes exposes the allele to natural selection, in the long run its frequency decreases more rapidly in inbred population. In the short term, incestuous reproduction is expected to produce increases in spontaneous abortions of zygotes, perinatal deaths, and postnatal offspring with birth defects. HM Slatis showed a significant delay in time to first pregnancy in first-cousin marriages as compared with unrelated individuals in the same population. There may also be other deleterious effects besides those caused by recessive diseases. Thus, similar immune systems may be more vulnerable to infectious diseases (see Major Histocompatibility Complex and Sexual Selection).
A 1994 study found a mean excess mortality with inbreeding among first cousins of 4.4%. A study of 29 offspring resulting from brother-sister or father-daughter incest found that 20 had congenital abnormalities, including four directly attributable to autosomal recessive alleles.
The human species has several races. Races to which include Asians, Indians, Caucasians, African American's ect ect.. Now remember, The Creationist crowd doesn't believe in evolution.. So this would make zero sense in how Adam and Eve, usually depicted as Caucasians, were able to produce children capable of producing children of different races. Breed any white man with a white woman and you are going to get a white child according to creationist logic. You are not going to pop out an Asian, or African American. Especially from inbreeding without believing in evolution. But surely the bible explains this right? Nope! The bible does not detail anything in terms of how anything could have happened from Adam and Eve. It simply skips having to explain anything and just asserts everyone magically came from Adam and Eve.
Well, I am sure apologetic Christians will self-invent a way the human species reproduced and propagated around the world, but it's never actually detailed for a reason. However, they have no scripture or biblical account to support themselves with. Kind of like how they attempt to play GOD of the Gaps with evolution.. But it seems they have quite a large Gap in their religion here. Did Cain and Abel have sexual relations with their mother? Did Cain and Able have homosexual relations and magically produced a child? Did their GOD say, "Oh crap!", and then create more Adams and Eve's and just not say anything to cover up that little blunder?.. Well, a Christian will only be able to give you a self-invented apologetic answer, to which range from incest to backpedaling on Adam and Even being the foundation of humanity. Like the fossil record they like to pick on so ignorantly, they are left with an equivalent quagmire of missing frames in a movie they believe is mans origins. But worse! They have no DNA or any empirical data to support their position like evolution does, and provides.
THUS WE HAVE A CHALLENGE!:
So for any of you Christians out there, can you show us with empirical support of the Adam and Eve story? Can you show us the Scripture that tells us how
Abel, Seth and Cain had children? Especially when one murders his own brother.. Well, the answer is no you can't since it doesn't exist. You have a missing link.. But, I am sure the bible will get edited once more to revise this and have you just believe it since you will believe in the evolution of your own bible.
I would also like to see Christians provide a DNA record leading all the way back to Adam and Eve to prove their position. A little actual science can't hurt can it? It's quite the challenge, and I wish you all the best of luck.
I would like to have everyone here remain on topic, and for Christians to directly address this subject without needing to appeal to ignorance, or need to self-invent answers. I can do that on my own, so I will expect answers with empirical support. Also, everyone will surely behave and adhere to the COH :)
