I think the must have done- where else would they keep their salt for dipping celery?
It depends on which Adam and Eve you mean.
The Adam and Eve of the Garden likely didn't have fingers, hands, torsos or any other physical part or attribute. The biggest clue to this is the fact that God said Adam and Eve would die on the day they ate of the forbidden fruit. But did they literally, physically die? Not at all. In fact, they were escorted out of the Garden.
Could the escorting be a symbol for death -- spiritual death? Was the Garden only a spiritual place? Were the physical attributes described merely and only metaphor for something else?
Another clue is the fact that the Tree of Life mentioned in Genesis 3 is also mentioned in the Jewish Kabbalah, only this tree is a pattern or template of concepts -- understanding, wisdom, kindness, beauty, etc. I suspect that the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil is another such non-physical tree -- a tree of dichotomies -- good-evil, wisdom-stupidity, compassion-indifference, confidence-doubt and others.
In fact, the Jewish Kabbalah's Tree of Life has been discovered embedded in two books of Genesis.
Thus, the forbidden fruit (product or end result) of the Tree of Knowledge may be a matrix of dichotomies. And perhaps this matrix is something we call "ego" -- the source of all selfishness and ignorance.
The Adam of Genesis 5 is different. This Adam is described in Genesis 5:2 as both male and female and as plural -- a "them." Here Adam is all of early humanity -- the earliest tribe. This Adam is a group. And the individual members of this group have navels, certainly.
What's interesting about the wisdom hidden in Genesis is that it includes a timeline compatible with those of science. It places earliest humanity (Adam) at 10,434,130 BC. All of the supposed ancestors of Homo sapiens were not even born 10.4 million years ago. Perhaps humans were created instead of evolved, after all. But created from nothing, or created by a genetic engineer? We may never know this.
While much much learning did not harm Paul, methinks that much learning hath indeed made thee mad.
PastorAndrew, it appears to me that lone77star is more interested in plants than fruit. He may be making up a batch of hash with those plants, and not corned beef hash.
The only navels Adam and Eve had were oranges.
Incidentally, there are no apples mentioned in the Book of Genesis.
Hey lone77star, I still think the forbidden fruit was a fig. Go figure.
I have others that also thought it was the fig because they made coverings out of fig leaves. Maybe that is why I don't like figs. There is definitely something evil about fig newtons.
And if there was a dichotomy behind the fig leaf?........
Adam and Eve were created not born so I would say they didn't have navels.
Is this a serious or humerus question? I was going for the Apple/Orange thing, but Blackandgoldjack beat me to it, lol.
But seriously, it brings up the old "which came first?" argument. We cannot ever know the answer to this.
It's probable that the somehow-created world we know has origins beyond our wildest imaginations. Let's celebrate what we DO know.
If God deemed it important for us to know, than He would have said. But if you are really that curious, ask them when you get to Heaven.
Adam, as we all know was made from mud. No surprise to women, I'm sure. Eve, of course was made from the rib of Adam, which is why it is so easy for women to get under men's skin. Since neither was born in the traditional manner, there would be no need for navels, although they would have had the physical foundations for this important equipment. This foundation is known as a navel base. From this navel base has been launched the whole human race. Without navel bases, those little human submarines swimming in amniotic fluid would never get to dry-dock. I for one support more government funding for more navel bases.

What was the fruit that Adam and Eve ate?A lot of people believe that it is an apple, that's what I've heard anyway. But the apple is so good for us so that makes it hard for me to believe it is an apple. What do you think the fruit was?

I read that question earlier and have been thinking about it while trying to go to sleep .... Well? Here I am ??? I was wondering what life would be like if it hadn't been? Had we not received knowledge we wouldn’t have anything to fear or anticipate. We enjoy the quest...

What was god expecting to happen when he put the tree of knowledge with an obviously ignorant and naive adam and eve in the garden of eden? Telling them not to touch it and punishing them so harshly when they did. It's like putting your children up for adoption for eating a cake you left on the...
