Was Adam created by cloning "God"? Was Eve created by cloning Adam?

There are myloter's out there who can be surprised or offended with the notion that cloning was described in the Bible. In Genesis 1/26, there are important clues that the creation of Eve from Adam was not conducted by a singular God. In this one sentence, there are three plural references: 'us,' 'our' and 'ours.' This was a CLONING operation observed by a primitive who did not understand. First, one of the technicians caused Adam to fall into a 'deep sleep.' This was the anesthesia. Second, a cell must be taken from somewhere on the body to create another body. The rib area was where the cell was taken. They 'closed up the flesh' is a modern expression describing the completion of the operation. Was it possible cloning?

That is actually quite a possibility. Unfortunately, I do not believe that it was either choice. I do like the argument and the statement about it, so good job to you!

Yes it is possible that such a technique could have been descirbed by Bible. We will never know if your interpertation is right or valid though you get 100 marks for creativity. In my opinion,there is no scientific way of explaining religion. If every thing related to religion were to be explained in a logical sequence will there be the any "mystery" left out in it to keep the devotees worshiping?

well since adam and eve weren't real i wouldn't worry too much about it, but it is an interesting question...though i always thought that one of adam's ribs (not a cell) was taken and suddenly there appeared eve.

It was mistaken in translation...rib..cell. It was cell.

The Biblical reports were not understood 500 years ago or even 100 years ago. It was only until the 20th Century and its technology that we could finally understand what was really happening. There is evidence that our REAL prehistory was similar to science-fiction. Most people either reject the Bible as nonsense or believe it is the absolute word of the Supreme Being. The Bible is the most amazing account of Close Encounters. The events were real; they happened; but the truth is extraordinary.

I'm afraid that if 'mistakes' in the Bible can be attributed to mistranslation, I can very easily prove that the God of the Bible is actually and in truth the Great Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I think that Adam and Eve is "Myth" not history. In ALL mythologies there is "the creation", in every creations there is the birth of human being. Anyway, interesting points ;-)

I don't think so.It is because each individual is unique. This are just symbolical. Perhaps it means that in the near future babies can be born through the power of the mind.

A persons mind can take them anywhere. Everyone perceives the words in the Bible differently depending on what is going on in their life at the time. It was written this way for a purpose. You idea of Genesis 1:26 is a fantastic idea for you. My mind can not comprehend it this way at all. I believe the literal aspect of it because I was taught that way. but I do think your way of thinking could be possible.

We all were taught same way. Me mind was always wandering about re-reading whole bible and look at every section from different angle. Many people say that bible has past and future.

I appreciate this novel opinion of urs but I am sorry to say that I don't agree with you. How could you come up with such an idea. Although I appreciate ur innovation, I can't find a way of agreeing with you on a single point you have put up.

If that's how you want to picture, that is just great. Humans will never be capable of understanding the Divine. Sometimes understanding things in human terms like these are a good asset to faith.

So it is written: The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven

See, you don't know where I came from....this is exactly what I want to find out....and clue may be in Genesis. According to Genesis, Adam lived 930 years. The length of Eve’s life is not mentioned but there is no reason to think that it wasn’t about as long as Adam’s. That by itself would confer a godlike status on them. Mankind loosed it. Why?

It says nothing about a "cell" just what "Bible" are you getting that from? In the BIBLE it says "Then the lord God made a woman from the RIB he had taken out of man and brought her to man" It also says nothing about a "technician" I absolutely can't stand it when people try and state so called facts about the bible when in fact they do not know what they are talking about.

I do know what I am talking about. Genesis 1/26: 'And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness...' 2/21: 'And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh...' We all have right to have different "translation" of Bible.
