The two are not mutually exclusive. The Bible is predominantly about the origins of mankind, whereas science includes ALL life on Earth.

well there is no fossil record of any humanid prior to 250,000 years ago i beleive?

we know that dinosaurs were around millions of years ago.

i know who i beleive was around first, the common ancestor, our single celled great great great .... 10^6 grandads.

Dinosaurs were 64 million years ago, and that was just when they died out. Then came the ages of the mammals, and humans, as usual came out of Africa about two million years ago. But as for the first to exist on earth, I would go with micro organisms and bacteria.

Certainly Adam and Eve were not the first humans. If they were we would all be related, which DNA can prove that we are not. We more likely evolved just like all the other animals, insects, fish etc. How boring eh? :)

(or did we come from aliens)

Hmm i thought our DNA showed early humans were inbreeding?

Remember reading it in some science magazine many years ago.

:D

I have no doubt that some inbreeding went on, and in some parts of the world still continues. But we dont all come from the same family tree.

If Adam and Eve were the first humans, then incest would have had to be the 'in thing' otherwise humans would have died out rather quickly.

Well from what I recall their sons had wives without any mention of there being daughters. So I guess God made Adam and Eve, gave some more thought about breeding, and said "yeah that's gross, I'm going to make more of them". :P

This is the way the whole thing was explained to me. Take my phrasing with a grain of salt please, I mean no discourtesy to anyones faith by phrasing it the way I do.

God makes pretty much everything before man, makes man, takes a day off. The info of what specifically was created when is kind of sparse, like animals were created, but the order of their creation isn't listed.

Depending on what version of Genesis one reads, apparently Adam was made somewhere else, and placed in a garden to the east of where he was created- Eden. While in Eden Eve was created from one of Adams ribs. Eve gave birth sometime after they left Eden. Cains wife came from the land of Nod. He hooked up with her after being kicked out of the place where Adam and Eve settled after getting kicked out of Eden.

Only two other children are mentioned by name, Abel who ends up dead before having kids, and Seth who is the grandfather X for Noah if I'm not mistaken. It is also mentioned that Adam has other sons and daughters after Seth, but they really aren't mentioned by name.

So we have two groups, those from Eden who originally were made west of Eden, and the people from Nod, the land east of Eden where Cain and likely other siblings of his found spouses.

There's a third group to mix the DNA up- sons of God. There's a bit that speaks of how the sons of God found the daughters of humans beautiful, and married with them. Not sure what sons of God really are.

Again, I have to state this is how it was explained to me when I wondered where Cains wife came from, and why we didn't inbreed/incest ourselves out of existence. It made sense to me :)

Actually, in the first chapter of Genesis, it is very clear that God said the following:

"Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. ” (Gen 1.20-26)

- THEN He/They created man (and woman) the next day.

There's a couple of very interesting lines in there - "according to their kinds." This means that even animals were given the opportunities to live their own lives... so this does NOT exclude the possibility of evolution.

I still like the line, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness..."

I just wondered how many deities there really WERE!!

i never got that, how did we get various races etc from two people?

Original Poster please do not confused, We did not evolve from a chimp, We share the same common ancestor, Just like Caucasians do with Asians or Blacks. Major confusion within the religious community. I believe in God, But not in religion and I believe in evolution

Although scientists do argue sometimes that Asians, Blacks etc are a completely different species of Human, But Human non the less.

So my answer to your question:People turned whiter as the got to Europe because a lack of Vitamin that the skin needed.. Over generations they turned white. That's why black people have ruff skin and Russians have fair soft skin. This is was I watched in a documentary on BBC.

Asians with the snow and harsh northern winds etc, There eyes became resistant and there cheeks sightly evolved to the sides.

Inbreeding is not a problem back then like it is now, Heck, you can even have a child with your 2nd or third cousin now of days without having any major genetic defect. The problem relies in Social attitudes.

But I watched a BBC program were there is a tribe in Ethiopia were scientists think Human kind first came about, But anyway, back to my answer.. In Ethiopia, There is a tribe where they have Black skin, Asian cheek bones, Caucasian hair and Body build and they interbreed with there children because they have a certain amount of Chromosomes or something that does not create genetic problems.

OP: Factual information bellow.

Photos: Over 7 million years of evolution of Humanity.

Sahelanthropus tchadensis lived seven million years ago - before the divergence of man and our closest evolutionary cousins, chimpanzees

[imgur](http://i.imgur.com/UbTIp.jpg)

Homo rudolfensis lived around two million years ago. The remains were found in Kenya - it's still not entirely clear where this ancestor fits into human evolution

[imgur](http://i.imgur.com/oSikk.jpg)

Paranthropus boisei lived 2million years ago and had a skull highly specialised for heavy chewing. The species is known as 'Nutcracker man' as it had the biggest cheek teeth and thickest enamel of any known hominin

[imgur](http://i.imgur.com/VtttQ.jpg)

Australopithecus Africanus lived around two milion years ago. The hominid is thought to be one of our direct ancestors - already showing a larger brain

[imgur](http://i.imgur.com/JS89v.jpg)

A skull of Australopithecus africanus found in South Africa was used to rebuild this face of an ancestor who lived around two million years ago, known as Plesianthropus transvaalensis ('near man from the Transvaal')

[imgur](http://i.imgur.com/WZgkw.jpg)

Homo erectus lived one million years ago. One theory is that the species originated in Africa and migrated to India, China and Java. Another holds that they evolved in Asia and migrated to Africa

[imgur](http://i.imgur.com/sc0qJ.jpg)

Homo ergaster lived 1.5million years ago. Very similar to Home erectus, it originated in Africa. Ergaster is from the Greek word 'workman'

[imgur](http://i.imgur.com/uTP7R.jpg)

Homo neanderthalensis lived 60,000 years ago. Probably our closest relatives, neanderthals were humans but were a different species to us, Homo sapiens. They evolved in Europe and Asia while we did in Africa

I can reference 40 or so major widely disparate Creation myths from across the world - each with a following of the faithful who believe that their's is the true version, so what is so special about the Genesis version? (Apart from the the fact that it's probably the one that you were indoctrinated with before you were old enough to make up your own mind.)

Genesis is a story. Not meant to be accurate. A myth. And it has nothing to do with a belief in God. Well, unless you take the bible literally. Which would be impossible in most societies.

Rodegil, allow me to ask you a couple of questions if I may.

1. Who wrote the book of Genesis in the bible?

2. Were they present at the time of this alleged creation?

I will answer the second question :). No, they were not, therefore whatever is written is pure fantasy. It was written by people who did not know anything of science, evolution, Earth's history etc, .as a means of explaining the purpose of their lives, why they were there and how life in general as they perceived it at that time got there. To believe in the book of genesis as the gospel truth is being a little naive. :)

In answer to your question ref who does not believe in god?

<----puts hand up :)

Well, *all* of the evidence contradicts the account of Genesis. So no, the first people on earth weren't, and couldn't have been, Adam and Eve.
