  • Children of Adam and Eve?
  • Well, first of all, I’ve heard that the entire concept of the caveman as we know it comes from a single skeleton—one that DNA testing later revealed was severely deformed. True? I don’t know; it seems kind of fishy to me, but I’ve never cared enough to research it. Perhaps it’s something you’d like to look into? Secondly, just because Adam and Eve were the first humans on Earth doesn’t mean that there weren’t other, humanoid creatures that preceded and/or coexisted with them. Furthermore, the oldest known humanoid skeletal remains have been dated to 7M B.C. and bear a *striking* resemblance to modern man—much more so than anything that comes between that skeleton and homo sapiens—so it’s not at all odd to think that man actually *preceded* the so called “cavemen.” HTH!
  • they are people of different beliefs/concepts.
  • yeah like someone said. there are different beliefs. in my opinion and belief. the was 2 other words b4 ours. and adam and eve where the second world.( got destoyed from the big storm-noahs arc) dinosars where the first(big medior destroyed them) and theres ours....where the cave men started.
  • I can't say that I'm christian per se... but, if you think about it... Adam and Eve made a decision and were suddenly thrust upon the Earth and had to learn to use tools, had to learn to find food, to farm and everything else. Doesn't that sound a bit like a "cave man" (have to laugh at that term)? I tend to think of some of the characters/stories of their lives as representative of the struggle of man to survive, etc. So, if you think of it that way, maybe those who came directly after Adam and Eve had a long evolutionary ladder to climb just to stay and alive. Just a thought.
  • Cave men are from the first earth age. satan messed with it all so God destroyed it. Adam and Eve are from the second earth age, as are we. The third earth age is when we are in heaven.
  • THe children that were inbred turned into cavemen and then they were bred out of their cave-like habbits. or adam and eve WEREN'T the first people on earth.
  • The Bible says that God created the Earth. He also created Adam and Eve. As far as cavemen, you'll have to explain it to me.
  • Adam and Eve were dropped here by aliens. Aliens had set up colonies on Earth and were mining gold and other stuff to take back to their own planet. They need laborers and slaves though and early men were just not cutting it. So they made some hybrid men (and women) that were the product of alien and early man's DNA being spliced together. Adam and Eve eventually got to be a little too smart for their own good though and were allowed to leave Eden which was nothing more than a research area like a habitat an animal might be in and the tree of knowledge was nothing more than an observation tower. The serpent that told them to eat of the tree was not a snake but one of the aliens, a doctor that had the medical symbol on his arm/badge (2 snakes entertwined) and the knowledge that Adam and Eve gained wasn't from eating fruit from a tree, it was from going into the tower and finding out that they were not alone and were the children of genetic manipulation. Since the gig was up and Adam and Eve could no longer be observed in their habitat, a controlled environment, then they were let loose to go forth and procreate and become laborers. There's specualtion there was more than one Eden project going on at that time on earth. Eventually though the slave laborers came to be loved by some of the aliens that put them here and they grew too many so the Aliens decided to wipe the earth clean and start fresh yet again. This time they aliens left the planet and left Noah and the last of the mixed breed to go forth unaided and unwise to the alien ways. This way mankind could grow without big brother holding their hand yet again and be observed and guided in yet another project much like Eden but on a larger scale. So now us the children of earthmen and alien spliced DNA go through our lives, going to and fro, doing our tasks and living our lives thinking we got a good bead on things and all along we are just doing the work of an Alien parent, fulfilling their agendas and needs.
  • They needed a home? :O
  • they were evolving from science
  • God created man on the six day, he created Adam and eve later. Genesis 1:24-28: * And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. * And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. * And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. * So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. * And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 1,2 Genesis 2:8-9: * And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. * And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:15: * And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. Genesis 2:18-20: * And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. * And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. * And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. These verses are important for three reasons: 1. Humans were created on the sixth day and told to multiply and replenish the earth and to have dominion over the whole earth but Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden. That was to be their home. 2. Verses Gen 1:27 -28 says that God created man and woman and told them to multiply. In contrast, verses Gen 2:18 - 20 gives a different account. According to this, Adam was originally meant to be alone. It wasn't until after creating all the animals for Adam to see and name that God created Eve. (BTW, it says he named them, not that he alone had dominion over them, or that he had dominion over them at all. Adam's world was a garden, he had no need for dominion over the world's animal population.) The reason God re-created all the animals of the world for Adam was to find him a help meet. 3. In verses Gen 1:24 - 28 it states that man was created after the animals. Verses Gen 2:18 - 20 seem to be a direct contradiction unless you realize were reading about two different times, places and people(s).
  • Eve was actually not the second person, not was she Adam's first wife. Lilith got knocked up before she left his chauvanistic ass! As for how the family tree forked from there... I don't think we want to get into details ;)
  • adam and eve were the first perfect people created in the garden of eden. they were special people. they werent the first humans on the planet. the creator created them because he wanted people who would love him and be companions. that is why he bible speaks of the garden of eden. eden was a special place. in a special location. God's Country so to speak.
  • Every time the generations are destroyed a new epoch happens. The end of that time happens and a new beginning takes place.We(Hindus) believe the entire creation undergoes such things many times and even the Gods are replaced by the newer ones.I know it is not possible to believe in something like that. But then how does one explain the existence of this universe way back in time?There has to be a dissolution and recreation also, happening on a continious basis.What we read is of this epoch only.
  • If you want to explain cavemen, you'd rather not stick to the Bible.
  • God created man from the dust of the earth using tools which we today call biogenesis and evolution Cave men existed as the last link in the chain leading to us for about 200,000 years. THEN God breathed a 'living soul' into him. Maybe it was indeed one couple. Maybe it was a parable. Regardless, in the next 6000 years, mankind made the huge leap from banging stones together to launching space probes out of the solar system. Why the sudden change? Could this be EVIDENCE for the truthfulness of the story of Genesis?
  • 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.
  • Oh yes! Take a trip to a museum and what do we see. Men who are apelike living in caves right. But really, , why do so many pictures and replicas of “ape-men” flood scientific publications and museums around the world? On what are these based? The book The Biology of Race answers: “The flesh and hair on such reconstructions have to be filled in by resorting to the imagination.” It adds: “Skin color; the color, form, and distribution of the hair; the form of the features; and the aspect of the face—of these characters we know absolutely nothing for any prehistoric men.”23 Science Digest also commented: “The vast majority of artists’ conceptions are based more on imagination than on evidence. . . . Artists must create something between an ape and a human being; the older the specimen is said to be, the more apelike they make it.”24 Fossil hunter Donald Johanson acknowledged: “No one can be sure just what any extinct hominid looked like.”25 Indeed, New Scientist reported that there is not “enough evidence from fossil material to take our theorising out of the realms of fantasy.” So the depictions of “ape-men” are, as one evolutionist admitted, “pure fiction in most respects . . . sheer invention.” Thus in Man, God and Magic Ivar Lissner commented: “Just as we are slowly learning that primitive men are not necessarily savages, so we must learn to realize that the early men of the Ice Age were neither brute beasts nor semi-apes nor cretins. Hence the ineffable stupidity of all attempts to reconstruct Neanderthal or even Peking man.” In their desire to find evidence of “ape-men,” some scientists have been taken in by outright fraud, for example, the Piltdown man in 1912. For about 40 years it was accepted as genuine by most of the evolutionary community. Finally, in 1953, the hoax was uncovered when modern techniques revealed that human and ape bones had been put together and artificially aged. In another instance, an apelike “missing link” was drawn up and presented in the press. But it was later acknowledged that the “evidence” consisted of only one tooth that belonged to an extinct form of pig. I hope this helps. Vew573
  • It all depends on what side of the fence you come from. For a Christian, Adam and Eve make the most logical sense as coming first and there never were any "cavemen" But if you are an evolutionist, then of course the caveman approach is the most obvious. With that being said I'll give you my opinion only. When God confounded the language of the people at the Tower of Babel and they scattered all over the place, they had to use whatever shelter they could find which would include caves. Perhaps many had prolonged stays in these caves, while others built shelters out of the available resources. Think about this. Was the Stone-Age (caveman) a period of time long ago? Not necessarily, there are people living in the Stone-Age today in many places. They know how to make stone tools and weapons. Because people used stone implements does not mean they lived a long time ago. As I mentioned above, there are stone-age people today. In New Guinea, Borneo, Africa, Central America, and other places where civilization has not yet gone, men still use stone implements of all kinds. Throughout history, in every generation, some people have used stone implements and lived in caves. Not everyone, of course, but in any age there are always some stone-age "cavemen."
  • ..i guess the cave people just came from another planet for a little vacation
  • It said first... Not only.
  • Sorry, answered in error.
  • Probably some environmental disaster put some people in caves. We have people living in tents after disasters today.
  • CAVE An underground hollow or cavern with an opening to the surface. The word “cave” is translated from the Hebrew me‛a·rah′ (Ge 19:30) and the Greek spe′lai·on. (Joh 11:38) The Hebrew chor or chohr denotes a “hole,” sometimes big enough for humans to penetrate. (1Sa 14:11; Job 30:6; 2Ki 12:9) Another Hebrew word for “hole” is mechil·lah′.—Isa 2:19. Caves abound in the limestone of Palestine; Mount Carmel and the vicinity of Jerusalem, for example, were undermined with many caves. Accordingly, they are frequently mentioned in Scripture, sometimes in a figurative sense. Some of them were large enough to hold hundreds of persons and were used for permanent dwellings, as at Petra, or they were used as temporary shelters, burial sites, cisterns, stables, or storehouses. Many artifacts have been recovered from these natural shelters. Caves provided refuge in times of danger. The first mention of such a place concerns Lot and his two daughters living in a cave after leaving Zoar because of fear. (Ge 19:30) At Makkedah five confederate Amorite kings hid from Joshua in a cave that afterward became their common tomb. (Jos 10:16-27) When fleeing from the Philistines in the days of King Saul, some Israelites hid in caves. (1Sa 13:6; 14:11) To escape the wrath of Saul, David took refuge in a cave near Adullam and was there joined by “about four hundred men.” (1Sa 22:1, 2) Again pursued by Saul, David concealed himself in a cave in the wilderness of En-gedi, and it was here that David cut off the skirt of Saul’s coat when he “came in to ease nature.” (1Sa 24:1-15) It may have been David’s experiences on these two occasions that prompted him to compose Psalms 57 and 142, as their superscriptions show. After David was made king, the cave of Adullam apparently served as military headquarters during a campaign against the Philistines. (2Sa 23:13; 1Ch 11:15) When wicked Jezebel attempted to kill off all of Jehovah’s prophets, Obadiah fed 100 of them who were hiding “in a cave.” (1Ki 18:4, 13) Elijah also fled from the anger of Jezebel to a cave at Horeb, and it was there that he received divine instructions to return and anoint Hazael as well as Jehu. (1Ki 19:1-17) So from these examples Paul had ample support for writing that men of faith “wandered about in . . . caves and dens of the earth.” (Heb 11:38) Many years later the catacombs of Rome served as underground refuges and meeting places for persecuted Christians. The dead were often buried in caves. The very rocky soil in much of Palestine made digging graves difficult. The Bible’s second mention of a cave is concerning the one of Machpelah at Hebron that Abraham bought and used as a burial site, and where Sarah, Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob, and Leah were all buried. (Ge 23:7-20; 25:9, 10; 49:29-32; 50:13) The memorial tomb of Jesus’ friend Lazarus “was, in fact, a cave.”—Joh 11:38. Caves often served as excellent storehouses, especially in times of danger. Thus, to protect their crops from Midianite raiders during the days of Gideon, “the sons of Israel made for themselves the underground store places that were in the mountains, and the caves and the places difficult to approach.” (Jg 6:2) Similarly, the Dead Sea Scrolls were evidently hidden for safekeeping in caves near the Wadi Qumran, NW of the Dead Sea, where they remained undisturbed for many centuries until their discovery began in 1947. Figurative Use. Jesus accused the money changers of making the temple “a cave of robbers.” (Mt 21:13; Jer 7:11) The prophecies recorded by Isaiah and in Revelation tell that some will try to escape God’s judgment, “the dreadfulness of Jehovah,” by hiding themselves in “the caves,” but according to Ezekiel “the caves” they make their strongholds will furnish no protection from God.—Isa 2:19-21; Re 6:15-17; Eze 33:27.
  • THE CAVE PEOPLE ARE ALLIENS MAY BE ;)
  • They never existed and no real primitive primates as ancestors ever exsisted either.
  • People still live in caves so what's the beef?
  • I don't believe Adam and Eve where the first people on Earth. I do however believe they were the first chosen people on Earth created by God and for God.
