The most usual interpretation I've heard throughout my life for differences in skin tone starts with Ham, Shem, Japheth, the three sons of Noah, who all moved to different regions of the earth, and asserts that the skin tone of their descendants was affected by climate over time. A list of descendants and the lands they settled in is provided in Genesis 10 ...

Personally I think this question is probably not a question that really fits on this site. But... If the bible is true and the account of Adam and Eve is true (which I believe is true and accurate in both cases), then scientifically speaking Adam and Eve had all the genetic code available in them to produce offspring of all skin colours. There is no ...

We cannot know for sure, for the Bible is not explicit on this. We do know, though, that from a biblical perspective, Eve was created "out of Adam". Thus, it seems that Eve and Adam may have shared genetics that were perhaps identical. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the ...

We don't know if Adam and Eve were the same skin color or at opposite ends of the spectrum. However, either way could result in children with a great variety of skin color. As long as they weren't darkest or lightest in skin color, the variation can come from how the multiple genes for skin color combine. I have brown eyes while my parents both have green ...

I can understand why when God left the making of woman until later, it may appear to some as an error. However you must keep in mind that He always does everything with purpose. It was always His purpose to create everything in a methodical step by step way. The Genesis record is there for our benefit as much as a historical record. All things God did were ...

Scientific Perspective: Evolution is the basis for all biodeversity in the world. We have observed it, and evolution is no longer a fact debated in the field of biology. The Theory of Natural Selection is the best, and only viable explanation of the facts that we see; which includes evolution, archaeology, and DNA analysis, for the ranges of life the we ...

Catholic Perspective Despite skin color, all men descend from just one set of parents: Adam & Eve For example, if Adam and Eve were both of a lighter skin tone, - an assumption - why is it that we have people of darker skin tones too if all generations descend from Adam and Eve? Despite these cosmetic differences - and they are just cosmetic as modern ...

Although some Christians think Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 are entirely disconnected stories, I think that most Christians believe Genesis 2 tells a more detailed version of the sixth day. Genesis 1 sounds like God simply creates the man and woman at the same time, but Genesis 2 shows they were created separately. A combined chronology would be: God creates ...

No, he doesn't. God relate with us in a chronological line of time because He wants that we understand what is communicating. That sentence is true in that exact moment and if He would not said it, we never would know about it. EDIT: (The next section is new in order to provide a better answer) We are living in a chronological line of time (1D thinking in ...

The key words in your question are ". . . as though it wasn't good enough." The Bible is full of passages in which God does something "as though" He was one of us; namely, a fallible and finite human being, which He is most definitely not. Take the passage in which God calls out to His erring creatures shortly after their act of disobedience, saying ...

God doesn't change his mind. If we take a look at the Bible in its entirety, and if we also consider the course of events down through history, we have to conclude that all things happen in some pre defined order. Even if we were to take God out of the equation, we will have to admit that all things progress from the past. That means that man has progressed ...

God created man for a loving relationship; a loving relationship must be a free-relationship. We should be thankful that God’s fore-knowledge of man’s transgression did not cause God to restrict His created purpose for mankind. The Bible never depicts God as a divine-brain; therefore His omniscience is only one characteristic of His being, love on the ...

Why Did God Create the Universe (or, at least, Humanity)? The answer to that will speak to your question about God's foreknowledge. I will propose an executive summary: the purpose of humanity1 is to know and love God. (Jn 17:3) The testimony of the Scripture is at least compatible with this idea, though I find more than just circumstantial evidence in ...

This is a big debate between the so-called Classical Theists who believe that God's knowing everything is absolute and includes exhaustive foreknowledge of the future as a certain absolute not merely as possible contingencies, and the Open Theists who believe that God only knows everything that's possible to be known and that the future is not possible to be ...

I think they could have had many children in the Garden. However, Cain's arrival seems to fit in with what Eve thought to be a prophetic promise that the seed of the woman will bruise the head of the serpant. In that prophecy Gen. 3:15 "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou ...
