If Adam and Eve were the first people on Earth, how do you explain cave men?
You don’t. If you believe in the Adam and Eve account, and assume that they were the first people on Earth (as you ask in your question), you cannot explain cavemen. Within a few generations of Adam and Eve there are entire civilizations, which also cannot be explained in terms of human reproductive capacity. You also can’t explain where Cain’s wife and the Land of Nod came from. It is a myth, nothing more. There is no truth to it. About 3 thousand years ago a bunch of bronze-age, nomadic tribesmen sat around a fire and guessed at how the world was created.
- If Adam & Eve were (supposedly) the first and only humans on Earth and had 2 sons, one son would then have to have a baby with his own mother in order to produce a population. How does this fit in with Christian beliefs?
- If Adam and Eve were White, what did black people evolve out of?
- Did we all inherit sin from Adam and Eve?
