People Before Adam And Eve

I am a freshman in college. My College professor refers to ancient peoples who lived in America long before Adam and Eve, this all confuses me.

Moderator - Sounds like he is confused. What class?

DrRich you need to come back to Dan 2.43 before moving on What does it have to do with races as you insist?

BTW Peter wrote about Pauls writings, with no hint they were of lesser import than his- just a little hard to understand.

You are a bit of a moving target Richy!
---Warwick on 2/12/08


JD_Rich: Paul is a false prophet? NO, you are a false prophet!

Tell you what? It's a waste of time. You don't want to know the truth.

Obviously you're not in your right mind. I pray God will humble & cause you to bow your knee, repent & accept His Bible-inspired truth (Genesis - Revelation).
---Leon on 2/11/08


Leon and Warwick, No! Remember it is only a theory. (Please leave Paul's writings out of this issue because he was a false apostle). It is obvious to me that you have not checked with the Septaugent on this. Tell me the meaning of Isaiah 65:17-25. Tell me why Satan was sinful before Adam sinned. Show me another theory that showes the bible agrees with science.
---Dr._Rich on 2/11/08


1. JD_Rich: Your train of thought has jumped track on the Bible mountain of truth. Dan. 2:43 (specifically 2:24-49) isn't about "different races". It's about "different kingdoms" that would ultimately be toppled by God's kingdom "mounting up" & filling the whole earth.

"Satan would want people to believe that Adam was the first human, so the blame of sin would be upon him only." Really!? What Bible chapter(s) & verse(s) says that?
---Leon on 2/11/08


2. JD_Rich: It's obvious you're promoting a theoretical gospel, according to Rich, in place of the God-inspired Bible. Repent!!! (1 Jn. 4:1, 5-6)

Good, solid points Warwick. :)
---Leon on 2/11/08




a) DrRich Dan. 2:43 concerns God talking about kingdoms trying to strengthen themselves by forming alliances with each other through intermarriage of their rulers. He says don't be unequally yoked (as per 2Co.6:14) by marrying non-believers- iron & clay do not mix. I see nothing about races here, but about believers & non-believers.
---Warwick on 2/7/08


b) DrRich regarding Eden Genesis 3:17-19 says because of Adams sin the curse, and its penalties, was instituted, including that man, now thrown out of Eden would struggle for survival. And no longer able to take from the tree of life and live forever. Eden a special place created for man to live in right relationship with God- lost by Adams rebellion!

Science knows nothing about Eden & cannot investigate it as it is unavailable for any investigation or test.
---Warwick on 2/7/08


c)DrRich everything I read in Scripture plainly shows God laid the blame for the entry of sin into the world, at Adams feet alone. Romans ch.5 & 1 Corinthians ch. 15, for example, makes this obvious.

In the whole of Scripture I see not one word that says otherwise.
---Warwick on 2/7/08


There were no people on Earth before God created Adam and Eve...your professor is simply wrong...the Bible is our sole authority for the faith...Read first few chapters of Genesis again....
---Fred on 2/7/08


Warwick, the reason I wanted you to answer Dan 2:43 is because God said there are different races/seeds of humans. (I said different DNA---not skin color alone.) And as for your answer on the special garden--what a lame excuse! You will have to admit that my theory does agree with science. Satan would want people to believe that Adam was the first human, so the blame of sin would be upon him only.
---Dr._Rich on 2/6/08




2) DrRich If Adam & Eve had been created with genes for skin colour such as aA, bB then their offspring could have skin tones from very pale (aabb) to very dark (AABB.) You see that in India today with children in the one family from pale to dark, with the same two parents. Have a look at the site creationontheweb dot com - there are articles there which explain in detail.
---Warwick on 2/6/08


Thank you Strongaxe, I get where you are coming from. My example is found in Hermeutics teachings on how to interpret Scripture. A systematic theology that permits all who are serious in learning the word of God to go through a serious of check points before redering a decision on what God meant with the message first. I agree with your view that Scripture is infallible. The Reform view is that when we call the Bible infallible we are talking about the original writings only.
---Mark_V. on 2/6/08


#2. Strongaxe: We understand that many versions have been printed, for many reasons, So may have the writers of those versions making words more clear. But there is enough evidence to it's authentisity plus we have Jesus quoting many passages as truth, and He along give authority to God's Word. If someone doesn't want to believe in Scripture they are denying the fact Christ did. We can compare Scripture with Scripture to make sure our interpretations are correct because God's Word never contradicts.
---Mark_V. on 2/6/08


a) DrRich Scripture interprets Scripture. When read cover-to-cover this is obvious. From their many quotes and allusions to Genesis its obvious Jesus and the apostles took it at face-value. Therefore why should we puzzle over it rather than accepting their lead?

Eden was a special place created for Adam & Eve, where they could live without having to till the ground. They could have stayed there for ever but willfully caused their own expulsion. Hard work from then on!
---Warwick on 2/6/08


b) Dr Rich we're one race, scientifically one species-genetic differences between so called races are tiny and less than the variation within so called races. Variations are the result of natural selection and recombination-variations on the one theme.

My grandchildren have English, Scottish, Welch, Irish, British, Scandinavian, French, Chinese & Indonesian ancestry. What race are they?

BTW Scripture does not mention race but only tribes, nations and languages of men.
---WARWICK on 2/6/08


1) DrRich as regards 'white' people producing only white children this is the same as a certain breed of dog only producing the same breed when mated with the same breed. They are the end line of natural or human selection and have lost the genes to reproduce otherwise. White people have lost the genes to produce dark brown skin as most dark brown people have lost the ability to produce pale children other than albino.

Warwick, you have good questions. Please note that even 'creation' is just a theory. The problem with taking things at face value is the interperter. We have that same problem in courts every day! And you didn't answer the question as to why Adam needed a special garden when he had the whole world. Please explain Myan, Moor, Asian, African and Eskimo races. What about Sumar?
---Dr._Rich on 2/4/08


Warwick, question: IF a perfect 'white' couple had children that only had children from their own blood line/DNA, how long would it take for them to produce 'black', 'yellow' and/or 'red' bloodlines/DNA? The correct answer is NEVER! And tell me about Daniel 2:43? Just what does this mean?
---Dr._Rich on 2/4/08


The problem is not with the word of God, it is with the way that word is translated. Look at a faithful English translation of the Septuagint. It appears that there were two creations. The first was reptilian and mankind (males and females). The second was the earthman (Adama) and mammals and birds. I don't have space to write the proof. I will be writing a paper on this shortly.
---rs on 2/4/08


Mark_V:

You misunderstood my "reductio ad absurdum". I am saying exactly the opposite.
I am saying that, believing that scripture is infallible, you CANNOT then take pieces of it and say "It doesn't mean what it says, becuase the author was having a bad day". You HAVE to accept that it means what it says, because God intended it that way.

Dr Rich as regards your questions to Catherine:Cain may have quite safely and legally married his sister or relative. Considering the time spans involved there were most certainly numerous people around, all descended from Adam and Eve.

Surely you would not liken the fantasmagorical Epic of Gilgamesh to the sober narrative prose of Genesis?
---Warwick on 2/1/08


Strongaxe, by your answer gives clear evidence that your reason for answering is not to debate anything. You have concluded that Scripture is wrong and fallible. Well, I guess there is nothing more I can discuss with you about Spiritual things, it would be useless. For if Scripture is fallible, then the Word of God cannot save you.
---Mark_V. on 2/1/08


Dr Rich I understand you are theorizing but why theorize? Why not take Genesis at face value, as Jesus and apostles (inspired by the Holy Spirit) did? They quoted from or alluded to the first 11 chapters of Genesis 107 times-always as historical fact!

There is but one race the human race-all the one species, able to interbreed, therefore descended from the same original ancestors. Scripture never mentions race.

Who says there were no dinos on the ark?

Strongaxe if Jesus the Creator, obviously there at the beginning, chose to call day 6 'at the beginning' that will do me. After all it's only about 1/2000th of 1% from the beginning in relation to when he spoke.

The point Strongaxe is that the non Biblical long-age views promoted by compromisers here have Adam appearing billions of year after the beginning. Obviously the opposite of what the Creator said!

I would think even a pedant would see which view is consistent with Scripture.
---Warwick on 2/1/08


What God was getting at by "searching the world for a suitable mate" was to show that there was no woman in the world that was righteous. For some reason, God needed humans to be witnesses about Him being the only true God. The thing is: God made both Man and Woman in just creating Adam. Just as the Holy Spirit is in God the Most High, so was Eve in Adam. AND the is were we get the "Plan of Redemption" and the bible from.
---Dr._Rich on 2/1/08


Mark_V:

Emotions by characters in the Bible is an excuse for wrong thinking, because they were not necessarily inspired. Emotions by AUTHORS of the Bible, however are NOT an excuse, because to say "they wrote something that wasn't accurate because of their mood" would directly contradict the idea that the Bible is inerrant.

What you think I "want to say" is reading between the lines. But I'm giving the actual lines themselves.
---StrongAxe on 2/1/08


Warwick:

Yes, I'm a pedant.
When people wave their hands and state personal theories, I quote chapter and verse, and let everyone draw their own conclusions based on what the bible ACTUALLY SAYS, rather than personal opinions (whether mine or anyone else's).

The only evidence on Darwin we have is that he was a Freemason, and we know that God is not. Darwin is more likely to be a lie than God. People have lost a lot of intelligence that they once had, eg about how to read the planets and solar system, I mean the ordinary people. Wars made sure that people could not progress. They are now about as unintelligent as sheep being herded ready for slaughter. That was social engineering done for the purposes of the New World Order - the Freemasons' master plan.

#2. Strongaxe: A study into the attributes and nature of God first, what Omniscience, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, holy, righteous, love mean concerning God will help answer almost all passages since God never changes. If you run into a passage that seems to say something contrary to who God is, you have misinterpreted it. Every single verse in Scripture has to align with who God is. Many answer passages thinking that they interpret correctly when it goes completely against the nature and attributes of God.

#3 Strongaxe: In the passage you gave Gen. 2:20, the writer of Scripture is saying, "Since there was no kinship but animals there to be found" God is not talking and writing. The writer is writing while inspired by the Holy Spirit. Many times the writers show emotions also but it is their emotions not God's yet all of what is written is the word of God. Job showed his emotions many times but it was his emotions not God's. Hope it helps
---Mark_V. on 1/31/08


Strongaxe, it seems by your passage you want to say that it is written, that God went around looking for a mate for Adam. If God had not made a kinship for Adam why would He be looking? Maybe He forgot? He must be dumb if He doesn't remember if He did or not. And if He was searching how could He is He is Omnipresent, in every place at one time? Strongaxe I am going to give you some advice and its up to you whether you use it or not that can help you with Scripture.

Your words"genisis says the earth was created without form empty".
That was incorect the word Gen.1:2 And the earth was without form,and void,and darkness on the face of the deep.It was not ceated that way{as yous said},it became that way,without form is the hebrew word tohu meaning a ruin,vacancy,void is the hebrew word bohu,meanng emptiness.

There are different interpertations of the septaugent and I tried to get the earliest Greek. Here is the thing: How else did all the races get here? Why weren't the dino's (and other such beasts)on the ark? Why didn't God creat Eve before the animals in the garden?

catherin, I said it was a theory. Read the Epic of Gilgamish, Book of Enoch, and Sumarian writings, plus Zitchens's stuff. Why did Cain have a mark placed on him if only his parents knew what happened? Tell me, where did the Nephalum go when the flood came? Who did Cain marry? Why the need for a special 'garden'? Why the different dialects, Why the names of rivers and places before the garden was made? Does not my theory agree with science?

Lionel I believe the earth and universe are the same age, with Adam created on day 6.
Genesis says the earth was created without form and empty, then God made dry land appear then and over successive days filled it with his creatures. He didnt (though He could have) create in one instant.

I believe God created over a 6-day period and rested the 7th as a template for our week, as the 10 Commandments say.
---Warwick on 1/30/08


Lionel re your blog 28 Jan. Genesis 1 says God created the earth then vs9 says He caused dry land to appear (previously covered by water) to form the land where some of His creatures would live. Void means empty which the earth was on day one, obviously empty as no life had yet been created. Empty doesnt suggest it was in anyway less than perfect.

Lionel re your blog of 29Jan-as has been pointed out before the word replenish in the King James is an archaic word originally meaning fill, but today has come to mean refill. So nothing disastrous happened on day one, between In the beginning and there was evening and there was morning-the first day. Think about it this wasnt a day, or one day, but the first ever day,(one earth rotation)because God is eternal living outside of time, and not needing the sun to see.

3)There is a lot of time between Gen.1:1and Gen.1:2.

Steveng to be honest I am not sure what he's on about thats why I have asked questions!

The idea of days a thousand years long makes no sense grammatically or Scripturally. Why would God repeat-the evening and the morning were the first, second etc day- if day wasnt composed of evening followed by morning.. Indeed why would He define the word day (having evening and morning) as He does in Genesis 1, if He really meant a thousand years? He must be a very confused god and a sloppy author too.

Notice that The Man was placed into a garden within the world and again creatures were made for this garden only such as the birds and animals of the field.

Warwick, to answer you question you must study the Septuagint. This is the earliest manuscript of the (Old Testament) that we have found. Notice that there are steps taken with each day. In the first creation (6-day) you will find that reptiles and their kinds would be dinosaurs. Flying creatures is a different word then birds in Ch. 2. You will see that the things made had their kind with them. So did man and their kind. Notice too that the beasts in this creation did NOT go into the ark.

The detail differences in the Gospel accounts are because they are 4 writers each with his own memory. That does not make them a false record, but there are difference.
so the Gospels were written by MEN, based on their memories.
Genesis was written in a similar way, by MEN, and shows their perception of how the world was made, and the way their nation grew.
Times scales were those men's ideas.
That fact does not alter the great Truth that God made it all, and that Jesus saves.
