You might not be "up to date" on what modern science actually teaches.
Archaeological evidence is very Nineteenth Century. It relies on fossils and strati and such.
Modern anthropologists are much more interested in DNA. This is the "blueprint of life," and it can tell us quite a lot more than rocks and fossils. We can determine quite a lot with modern samples of diverse populations, without ever visiting an archaeological dig. We don't need DNA from extinct or long dead samples - your own DNA would do just fine to help us further our understanding.
The person of "Eve" in Biblical accounts is known to science as "Mitochondrial Eve"
Every human being is descended from Mitochondrial Eve, according to science. This is settled fact among all biologists.
Adam is a bit more elusive, because the male does not pass mitochondrial DNA. But science has identified a potential male ancestor of all humanity, known as Y-Chromosome Adam:
Scientific Eve and Adam never met. They were once thought to have been 50,000 years apart, but recent analysis places them about 10,000 years apart (Eve came first).
Genetically speaking, however, if a female descendant of Mitochondrial Eve mated with a male descendant of Y-Chromosome Adam then all of humanity could trace its origins to this union.
The commonly accepted scientific idea differs from the Biblical accounts only in the nature of chronology. As far as modern science is concerned, the idea that all of humanity is the genetic product of one female and one male is almost universally accepted.
If Adam and Eve were the first human beings that God created then where did Cains wife come from? The evidence in the bible supports that the 6,000 year old timeline is Adams lineage. To me this makes more sense and it goes along more with the scientific evidence that the human race is 200,000 years old.
Carbon dating proves that human being existed before the creation
of Adam. God has always been mysterious and never reveals his true plan.
