If there was adam and eve in the beginning, how come teachers try to influence the idea that...
during the dinosuar era there was not human life for a long amount of time?
This is really a question about the relationship between science and faith.
In my opinion what it comes down to is whether or not you take the Bible Literally.
The story of Adam and Eve is just that, in a sense its a story about how and why God created human beings and our relationship with him and each other.
Science says that all humans can be traced back to 5 pairs of men/women. This, on the surface, is contradictory to the single-parent story of adam and eve. However, the Bible is not a scientific text, so both can be true.
Perhaps there weren't really humans alive during the dinosaurs, but if you read the first account of creation, Humans were created AFTER animals... so really, there's not a whole of contradiction on the very basic beliefs.
The other reason is that teachers aren't really supposed to talk about faith/creationism in public schools.
You answered your own question......IF how do you know that they were in the beginning. So I guess you have to start with the doubt that you have and go from there
If you believe in Science the you will know that we know for a fact that the big bang happened and dinosaurs existed. At the moment there has been no evidence to suggest humans leaving along with dinosaurs (it has not been proven).
But even bible scholars have suggested that you shouldnt take the teachings of the bible into literal meaning.
There were no specific individuals named "Adam and Eve," those are examples of "archetypes," look that word up.
depends what class you're talkiing about - in a science class, adam & eve have no place,since they're mythical. in a comparative religion class talk about them would be fine [but many evangelicals & fundamentalists oppose such class because they would discuss MANY religions]
the book of genesis can't stand up to a rational, scientific reading - it's actually a conflation of at least 2 earlier creation myths and the order of creation is idfferent - in one place it says man was created after the animals, in another that ajnimals were created first - it also says light was created before the sun which is the source of our light
The same reason they don't teach other creation myths in school's.

Why are there so many different races if we all came from adam and eve? Does it support evolution that we changed to different faces and colors and body types because we were exposed to different conditions that made our body adapt? If not then pls. explain.

The Luciferian gospel:Genesis 1:1 we read, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…” So, if Satan was a murderer from the beginning, then God created him that way. This gospel states that God is the author of evil if He created Satan evil from the beginning, so if God created...

Adam and Eve - Truth or Myth?Do you believe Adam and Eve are real people or allegorical figures. If they are physically true, why or how do you know, and if allegorical, what is the meaning or purpose of the story?
