Adam And Eve, incestuous?
IF Eve came from Adam's rib, wouldn't that mean they shared the same DNA?(Of course I don't buy this crap story) but knowing what we know about DNA wouldn't that make Adam and Eve incestuous?
If this is not the case, wouldn't it be better if God made Eve from dirt independently, without Adam's rib? (Not speaking as if I believe this crap, just merely arguing that the logic of the story makes no sense)
What DOES make sense is that women were, back in ancient times, were subordinates to men. So the Eve character had to be dependent on the male "IE" need HIS resources "rib" to survive "life".
The Adam and Eve story is not a page out of history, it is a myth reflecting the culture of the people who wrote it.
BTW FOLKS, your OT is based on Hebrew scripture and most Jews do NOT claim that EVE was the first woman.
