I was always taught that Adam and Eve were the first human beings that god created, but after reading the bible I now think otherwise. Scientist have always argued that the the creation story of the bible and the scientific and archeological evidence don’t coincide with one another. But I really feel like they are wrong. Supposedly Genisis 2 explains more in detail of the part of Genisis 1 when god created human beings. I don’t believe this to be true because in Genisis 4 where did Cains wife come from? Why did he build city if there were no other people in the world besides Cain, Adam, and Eve?
Another thing the young earth creationist crowd is also wrong. The bible doesn’t say that the earth is 6,000 years old. In Genisis 1 god created and heavens and the earth. Then his spirit hovered over the earth for an unknown amount of time. That could have been a couple of millions years. There is no way to really know. The creation story is so vague that it’s really impossible to put an age to the earth using the bible and it’s also impossible to say that Adam and Eve were the first human beings.
