    Why didn't God bring out Eve[the Woman]from Adam's head?

    Why was She made from the ribs bone of the Mam?

    We are all made from God's image--  but if he made women from God's head.. then we wouldn't have the difference in thought--    I dunno--  but good question

    I feel the answer from human angle is because relationships and marriages are not suppose to issue from the brains (human wisdom), but from the ribs (human heart).

    You see, things which are borne from human wisdom are not real but those which are borne from the heart of man. From the heart flows true love which is genuine before God.

    Jehovah created the woman Eve by using one of the 12 pairs of ribs, or one of Adam’s 24 as a base with which to build Adam’s wife.  Here God performed what may be called the first operation of painless surgery. He put Adam into a deep sleep, and   while he was sleeping, he took one of his ribs and then closed up the flesh over its place.  (Gen. 2:21-23)

    Did you notice he closed up the incision before he did the building of Eve?  Adam is still asleep, because that’s where his brain is—in his head!  He’s resting while his brain controls sleep while God is building the rib into a woman before he brought her to the man.  A rib was used; part of the first human so this divided the feminine characteristics from Adam and put them in his woman or Ishshah, and this produced the human sexes.   

    Ribs are easy to repair, whereas brain surgery is delicate, besides where would God naturally look, at the head?  That’s inane reasoning, because are there bones available like one of 24 ribs to choose from?

    Not because it would be easier, but because ribs ensconce vital organs.  The heart, lungs, kidneys, It would be incredible to remove Adam’s head, or even part of it while Adam is asleep—close up the flesh over its place to build that into what emerged, and what Adam was overjoyed to receive and accept:
         “This is at last bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This one will be called Woman, because from man this one was taken.” (Genesis 2:23)

    I heard a story about just that from my Granmother when I was about to be married. She told me that the reason God did it the way he did was something very important to remember... He did not take from Adam's head for Eve to be above him, nor from his feet for her to be beneath him, but from his rib (his side) for her to be equal to him. She told me to never forget that and I would have a happy marriage that would last. Too bad she never told the story to my ex-wife...W smile

    probably because he didnt want to plagiarize greek mythology where athena springs from the head of zeus
