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.
