Adam and Eve - not to be taken literally from Baphomets's blog

The story of Adam and Eve is only an allegory, not to be taken literally! What I can't wrap my head around is how Christians hold on to the idea that Adam and Eve were the first people on Earth. It just blows my mind. The same folks who hold on dearly to the Bible and look for it for answers and take everything in it literally, believe that this miraculous, sinful couple were the first. When Cain kills Abel and God warns him of being shunned, he lets Cain know that he will wander the earth alone and everyone will know who he is and of his murderous sin. Well Cain is the son of Adam and Eve and they are the first humans on earth, right? Well, who are all of these "others" that god warns him about, huh?


Genesis 4: 14, 15 KJV:

14 - Behold thou hast driven me out this day... everyone that findeth me shall slay me.

15 - And the Lord God said...vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold... And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

And a really fucking bad allegory too. But 70k years ago The Toba Supervolcano was almost dinosaurs 2.0. The human population is speculated to have dwindled to under 10000 total. (I have also read less than 1000) Giving something like a total of 1500 or so healthy breeding pairs at most. And also lots and lots of inbreeding. This is also the reason for breeding with the neaderthal and denisovan, nothing else around. This is a fun video on this topic: https://youtu.be/KgQFeq6tNcwAnd a really fucking bad allegory too.

Of course, it's an allegory and one that allows for the variety of interpretations. The question is what the paradise stands for. It might well be such a mundane thing as childhood or it might mean the wholeness of the psyche, the union with divinity and cosmos, the union of opposites etc. Taking anything in the mythology (and the Bible is part of it) literally is extremely narrow minded.Of course, it's an allegory and one that allows for the variety of interpretations.

I agree. Good post and comments. I have heard many people say, "the universe speaks in symbolism" or " the truth gets so watered down with lies that the mythology becomes more truthful " I think both fit. It is odd to know that jesus talked in allegory threw out the new testament and people don't apply the same sense to the old testament.I agree. Good post and comments.

I suppose Christians pick and choose which parts to be taken seriously and which parts to completely ignore.

Adam & Eve and children were the first Homo Sapiens. "Everyone" else were Neanderthals. Neanderthals went "extinct" because they weren't on Noah's ark.

Perhaps the "others" is an example of how God works in mysterious ways? LOL
