    Lets test your knowledged and "thinking."
    I'm going to ask a question that I asked my teachers in seminary.
    Their responses were incredulous in ref to the subject and my asking.
    They would not respond. Why? They thought I was
    1. kidding (I wasn't)
    2. My question was blasphemous (it was not.)
    Only those who have "thoughtfully" studied biblical scriptures would be able to answer me. Evidently they hadn't.
    Many, many more questions such as this, caused them to ask for my dismissal from seminary studies. I, thankfully, obliged.
    Here's my question:
    When Adam was (alledgedly)created, was he created with a penis?
    If you answer, pls offer your reasons.   :-)
    I won't get many responses to this question from believers. They will assume the same "position" as my X seminary teachers.
    I'll put $ on it!   lol

      Oh that is one very interesting question.

      If he were it would have been because G_d knew his experiment with two eternal beings would fail. You might also have asked if Eve were created with a womb.

      I hope you got some learned answers from some scholars. If you did I hope you share.

      Yes.  We are in the image of God.  The Fall promulgated the necessity of blood in our veins thus enabling child bearing and other things we are able to experience in this level of existence.  This blood was not present in it's current form at the time of Adam and Eve's creation.

      Well, here's a response from a Christian:  Of course he did have a penis, and I don't think it's a ridiculous question.  Actually, it made me laugh.  I thought it was a great question.  Only for one reason though--because spiritual inquiry is always healthy.

      God told Adam to multiply, so he had to come equipped to do the job.  The only thing he didn't have was a belly button.

      God is so good, and He loves His kids so much that He actually wants us to know Him, and to know Him well.

      God bless,
      Roger

      Hi friend qwark

      I am surprised as to how your seminary teachers could not answer your simple and natural question.

      Adam was not the first human being as commonly believed, he was the first person with whom God Allah YHWH had a direct conversation, and there were human beings men/woman before Adam and Eve having body and soul like Adam.

      I love Jesus as I do love Adam and Eve

            Well if we are using the first creation story which you are then it is because man and woman were created together, hence the need for a penis. If you go with the second more popular creation story which begins at Genesis 2:5 then that's a whole other matter that I believe might actually be against the hubpages TOS to discuss on the forum.

            And to the best of my knowledge the second creation story of the Bible is actually the original creation story.

                I'm not complicating it. There are two different creation stories in the Bible. Genesis 2:5 is the beginning of the earlier myth. In this earlier myth, Eve was created from Adam's rib. In the later myth they were created together. 

                You are taking two different creation myths and trying to put them together. These are two very different stories written at different times by different people, probably the oral tradition of two different tribes.

                In myth 1 from Genesis 2:5 onward he would have had no use for a penis. In the later myth which for some reason is presented first he either had a penis or had no use for Eve.

    Faybe Bayposted 7 years ago

    It truly depends on which interpretations you read. In Kabbalah it is believed that Adam was a hermaphrodite. That being said, the rib is taken to mean a side. God took a side of Adam, meaning the feminine side of Adam and therefore created a perfect mate, His other half.

    The Zohar has a different interpretation, that Adam and Eve were beings of pure light (created in God's image, Spirit) And that at the point of admission of disobedience, were made clothes of "Skin" at which point they became human, a spirit being entrapped in a body made of skin, that would age and die. If that view is taken then it would be at this point that Adam acquired the appendage in question.

    Penis is neccessary for procreation, and could easily have benn added/modified at the separation of Eve from his original body.

        Alright dude you reeled me in. I'm not seeing how this scripture implies that he was born without the goods.
        Are you implying that "Fit for him" means that they were equal on all aspects? And if you are, then what if they were both born men and God chopped off her chunks. So to speak, then there would be a whole new mystery behind the circumcision thing.

          I'm not sure about that, but quark was right-- I am not a Biblicial scholar-- (even though the verse about 'creating them male and female" comes before the one he cited) The Eve's view is interesting too.

          Is the creation story literal? I rather doubt it (and I have other questions), but the message may be literal. God created stuff including humankind. They didn't follow the rules. They paid a price.
          The details are incidental.

          If all of mankind had followed the rules (not killing, lying,coveting and that stuff) we would still be in Eden.
          This is all silly conjecture.

          If you have any questions, ask quark. He has given it a lot more thought.

        God created male and female at the same time..they were attached and separated..The word translated as rib..was really side and not rib..so it is either dividing cells or male and female were attached at the side..
        Gen.5:2: Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

        I personally think it is speaking of cells....

    Ok, lets do this simply.
    Alledgedly this god thing created adam, thought a bit "Then The Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him." (Genesis 2:18) and then created eve.
    If this god thing created eve as an afterthought, what would a penis have been used for before her? He hadn't thought of procreation.
    A hole would have done it.
    Which proves another point, this biblical god thing isn't omniscient. If it was, it would have thought all this out before hand and created them at the same time with procreation in mind.
    How can you "followers" miss this simple facet of the fairytale?

      See that is the flaw. People view the book as history, or fairy tale. Yet Dante's Inferno is philosophical. What if the Bible is more Philosophical than historical. Many of the concepts used in the Church are not Biblical, but passed down through the theologists from Dante.

      The point is that if man was perfect in the day he was created, then he wouldn't have needed a helper. There was no work to do. If we take it at face value, without digging deeper, and seeing the philosophical angle, then there is no need for a penis or a woman. You only create when there is something unfinished. You don't remake the made bed, or rewash the clean dishes. You have to dig deeper and see that as the God is described as all knowing, then the penis would be included as God knew he would eventually make a woman, because God knew that man would need a helper, because God knew that the world was not finished, not perfect and not complete.

        Of course all you write about is but opinion...as is what I wrote.
        All I can do is translate, available scripture, in accordance with my understanding of my native language: English.
        Since the advent of protestantism in the 1600's during the Reformation, more than 38,000 differing interpretations of the OT and the NT have engendered that number of sects.
        So if you interpret what you read in biblical scriptures in the manner you have, there are probably others existing which view scripture as you do.
        I'm a very literal reader. When I studied in seminary, I guess I would have qualified as a "fundamentalist."
        The difference 'twixt me and my peers, was that I didn't accept answers I was given by teachers and sought greater knowledge by reading and studying everything I could get my mind wrapped around that might help me to understand all that surrounds me.
        If the scriptures were inspired by "god," who was I to challenge them? If it is said that god created adam then eve, and I'm a thinking, conscious seeking believer, I am going to accept "god's" words until proven otherwise.
        since god created adam and didn't want him to be lonely, so created eve, I can only think that god hadn't thought about procreation when he created adam...ergo, no penis...made sense to me....as it does now knowing it is but a fairytale.

          Yes but Kabbalah was around before the Bible. The Zohar was handed down by word of mouth, not written, an esoteric study by Rabbis, of the original scrolls.

          That to me, puts one closer to interpreting any English version.

          An interesting point of study comes from Talmudic study. Why a Rib:

          Why not a foot, a toe, a part of the back, or head?

          Here is that result:

          The rib, because it is close to the heart that man would love woman, from under the arm, that he would protect her. From his side that they should be equal partners, not from his head that she would be above him, nor from his foot so that he would trod on her, not from his back, that he should stay ahead of her or leave her behind, not from his hand that he might strike her, or hold her back, or try to control her. No God chose his rib, that is pretty eloquent.

          Pretty interesting stuff, from the people who studied the original texts.

                    I think I mentioned in another forum comment that I enjoy impassioned, "rational" responses.
                    Yours is certainly "impassioned."  :-)
                    Rational? NOT!
                    You have asked me to read a "hub" or 2 of yours.
                    I'm gonna do just that...TY for the invite.
                    I will respond to them.
                    You are "feisty." That's intrigues me.
                    I'm going grocery shopping now. When I get back, I'll get to your "hubs."
                    Thanks ..:-)

    God said it is not good for man to be alone. Why? because he was playin' with it man. Or maybe he was doin' sheep. Was he created with teeth? Did he go through teething like I did? He could not have had a navel, or could he? So many questions.

    I had never thought about this before but the theory of evolution requires that not only a living organism evolves but also the laws of nature.   The reproduction system of single celled organisms reproduced under the laws of nature.   
        So I guess that the laws of nature would also have to have Evolved. Don't make since to me ????

      so you are saying that literally Trillions of human beings over the last 6+ millennium, from every form of culture and race on the entire planet, just offhandedly accepted these 'stories' to their own demise, but 'evolution' which is less than 200 years in the making is accurate and should be accepted?

      did you miss something in there about stories being told or did i read that incorrectly.

      choo-choo, all aboard.

    i think Adam already has an appendage when he was created, because God already had the intention that humans reproduce. And why wouldn't God put an appendage to Adam when he place it on animals too.

    Nature is just the physical universe.
    It is in chronic flux.
    All life within the physical universe must adapt or perish.
    Evolution is controlled by environment.
    As the environment changes, so must life if it is to survive.
    I don't know how to explain it any differently.
    The concept is very simple.
    The processes are very complicated.

      the universe is not physical, as some assume.
      it is projective, optic and reflective light.

      this is such a misconception. physical matter is false in that everything IS matter, has mass and purpose -invisible (projective &  reflective) or visible (optic) but in fact all stasis of light are material, because everything comes from it.

      but i still heart hub ya Quark!

      I didn't express my earlier question very well
        The reproduction system of a single celled organism is simply splitting in half each half grows until it can split in half again ????  It seems to be quite a jump in evolution of the reproduction system in itself to evolve to sexuality;  An evolution of a natural law of reproduction.  I know nothing.  Just saying that I had never thought of this in that respect???
         What ever theory as to how this actually evolved I am sure would require a great amount of faith.

    I heard that this is Eve's side of the story:

    After three weeks in the Garden of Eden,  God came to visit Eve.

    'So, how is everything going?' inquired God.

    'It is all so beautiful, God,' she replied. 'The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, the smells, the sights, everything is wonderful, but I have just one problem.

    It's these breasts you have given me. The middle one pushes the other two out and I am constantly knocking them with my arms, catching them on branches and snagging them on bushes. They're a real pain.'

    And Eve went on to tell God that since many other parts of her body came in pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc. She felt that having only two breasts might leave her body more 'symmetrically balanced'.

    'That's a fair point,' replied God, 'But it was my first shot at this, you know. I gave the animals six breasts, so I figured that you needed only half of those, but I see that you are right. I will fix it up right away.'

    And God reached down, removed the middle breast and tossed it into the bushes 

    Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden of Eden.

    ' Well, Eve, how is my favourite creation?'

    'Just fantastic,' she replied, 'But for one oversight. You see, all the animals are paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone.'

    God thought for a moment and said, 'You know, Eve, you are right. How could I have overlooked this? You do need a mate and I will immediately create a man from a part of you. Let's see....where did I put that useless Tit?'

    Now doesn't THAT make more sense than all that crap about the rib?

            Here Rochelle, this one is very good, I think you'll like it, too.


              One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve calls out to God, "Lord, I have
            a problem!"
              "What's the problem, Eve?"
              "Lord, I know you created me and provided  this beautiful garden and
            all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedic snake, but
            I'm just not happy."
              "Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
              "Lord, I am lonely, and I'm sick to death of apples."
              "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution.  I shall create a man
            for you."
              "What's a man, Lord?"
              "This man will be a flawed creature, with many bad traits. He'll lie,
            cheat, and be vain and glorious; all in all, he'll give you a hard time.
            But...he'll be bigger, faster, and will like to hunt and kill things.
            He will look silly when he's aroused, but since you've been complaining,
            I'll create him in such a way that he will satisfy your physical needs.
            He will be witless and will revel in childish things like fighting and
            kicking a ball about.  He won't be too smart, so he'll also need your
            advice to think properly."
              "Sounds great," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
            "What's the catch, Lord?"
              "Well... you can have him on one condition."
              "What's that, Lord?"
              "As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant, and self-admiring... So you'll
            have to let him believe that I made him first.  Just remember, it's our
            little secret...You know, woman to woman."
