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.

That's because Lilith wasn't submissive to Adam, and eventually gets herself banished off into Nod. The Christian Bible, concerned as it is with maintaining order and adhering to Paul's admonishments for women to be submissive to their husbands, focuses on Eve. Lilith, though, could be looked at as the solution to the 'male and female, he created them' contradiction.

Ah, Paul... an unmarried man and career misogynist giving marital advice...

She's kinda like those pesky books mentioned in the bible, but just couldn't quite make it into the canon. Yeah you hear about the crazy bitch........ but here comes lil miss goody 2 shoes ruining it for women for centuries. Imagine Lilith as the first feminist, only naked. Wonder if Lilith from Frazier got her name from the "buybull"?

You mean like the Book of Enoch? Good read. Talks about the rebellion of the Fallen.. which, btw, was run by Azazel, not Lucifer or Satan.

And yes, Lilith from *ahem* Cheers was in fact named in reference to the character from hebrew mythology.
