Can you prove they didn't exist..like I can prove Cleopatra didn't exist?
It has been proved that genetic Adam and Genetic Eve lived around 80,000 years apart, whether they were called Adam and Eve is impossible to prove

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y-chromosomal_Ad...
In human genetics, Y-chromosomal Adam (Y-MRCA) is the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) from whom all living people are descended patrilineally (tracing back only along the paternal lines of their family tree). Recent studies report that Y-chromosomal Adam lived as early as around 142,000 years ago.[1] Older studies estimated Y-MRCA as recent as 60,000 years ago.[2] All living humans are also descended matrilineally from Mitochondrial Eve who is thought to have lived earlier, about 190,000Ė200,000 years ago. Y-chromosomal Adam and Mitochondrial Eve need not have lived at the same time

As for Cleopatra there is considerable evidence that can be found on 3 contents. It is known and documented when she was born, and when she died. As a pharaoh of Egypt much of her live is written in stone (literally) in the Northern African continent and the Western Asian continent. Her visit to Rome is documented not only by her absence form Egypt but also in the Roman archives and she was written about by several Roman authors and historians.

However I would love to see you evidence that she didnít exists

In a recent study of creation, by those not present, it was observed that Adam and Eve were created as mature adults and the conclusion was that the earth was created with some years of growth and evidence of age without the time involved to actually make science happy...if you will.
What study is that? Please give a reference so that we can check it otherwise it just looks like you are lying for you god.

You do of course know that chistians teach that satan is the father of lies.

I can not believe that our Creator wanted Adam and Eve to disobey him and eat something that would eventually kill them and bring death into the world. I believe God knew from the moment they choose to disregard his word and believe a lie, that he would have to send Jesus to go to the cross to redeem mankind. Jesus is the fulfillment of the way to the tree of life and whoever takes of it can live forever in the kingdom of Heaven. We inherit the penalties of suffering and death from Adam but we can inherit life evelasting through Jesus. We can not do everything our fleshly bodies desire for us, because to do so will lead us away from God and the commands of Jesus to repent and turn fom all manner of sin. Sin and this world will seperate us from God if we put too much hope in it. If we turn from wrongdoings, then Jesus can forgive us and accept us and come into our hearts and give us a new life where we have great hope in him and not this fleshly body or this world, but the New Heaven and the New Earth that God has promised for our inheritance if we believe and follow King Jesus.

Jesus said God is a spirit and we make a choice to worship him in spirit and in truth. Jesus is the way the truth and the life and no one can come unto the father but by the Son. Our Creator gave all people free will and he is a spirit and we have flesh and blood bodies, but Jesus knows exactly who we are and what we are like because he lived on this earth in the fleshly body and was tempted as we are but resisted all manner of sin. If we choose to follow Jesus we are following a person who is worthy to trust and believe. Men can be liars knowingly and unknowingly, but God can not lie.

You are too late!

Why would he {god} put the tree in the garden, if he did not want them to eat it? I didn't put candy and guns in my kids' playpen! Why, cause I am not that stupid!

What I find funny is how much faith science puts in a Big Bang and evolution yet still have no idea how it was done. Yes they say evolution but what they mean is adaptation which is what happens in nature. The very idea of Darwinism is racist sexist and wrong. For those people of the religion of evolution out there show me one fossil of a human between the stage of ape to man just one full set of remains.

What is profound evidence to one person may appear to be very vague to others. I will just say, I have evidence that is good enough for me.

Then your standards for evidence are too low to matter. Dismissed.
