So I was raised a catholic but I don't follow any religion anymore so I have always wondered, Adam and Eve, did they really exist or are they just part of symbolism for the creation of earth and universe.
I know many people take the seven days of creation literally but in my opinion these are accounts of someone who told someone and that someone told someone else and down the line it goes.
Is Genesis to be taken literally or as a story?
Just my uneducated opinion of course
Like the many myths and superstitions of religions, this one is no different.
We may never know whether they actually existed. Perhaps they were the masculine and feminine principle.
Genesis - 'Lamb lies down on broadway', 'Land of Confusion', phil collins, Peter Gabriel - of course it exists!
I always figured it was not meant to be taken literally like many of the stories in the Bible.

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.

If man originated from one source, Adam and Eve, how come we have white and black people?Adam and Eve were either black or white. And if they really had the same skin color, where do other skin colors originate from. And also, why do we have different races? What really happened to us?
