In the Biblical sense Adam and Eve did not exist. The story of men and women living on this earth far transcends the petty story found in the Bible. Adam and Eve were not the beginning of the human race; they are nothing more than a footnote in a fictive mythological story written by some of our ancestors. The story of humans goes back many hundreds of thousands of years and is spread over the whole earth. We did not come from two progenitors 6000+- years ago. Our footprints, handprints, tools, habitats, art, and handiwork have been found all over the globe going back a hundred thousand, two hundred thousand, and many more years.

We humans have a history that is told in archaeological artifacts and human bones and pottery and stunning artwork on cave walls. We find finely crafted spearheads in animals that have not walked the earth for over 10,000 years, we find Homo sapiens skeletons superimposed with Neanderthal bones in Israeli caves from 50,000 years ago, we find 10,000 year old graveyards in the middle of the Sahara desert…relics from a time when the Sahara was green and home to ancient animals and human societies.

We humans also have sciences now that can read the ancient stories entwined in our blood. The stories that are told there….are not the stories of the Bible. We did not spread out all over the earth from “East of Eden” 6000 years ago. By that time humans were everywhere; in China and Southeast Asia, in Australia and Borneo, in North and South America, all of Europe, and many of the smaller ocean islands.

There is archaeological evidence of “us” all over the place and in time periods going back hundreds of thousands of years. The evidence is overwhelming, there are no doubts anymore. Adam and Eve as a Biblical truth…is not the truth.

Christianity, as well as Judaism and Islam, and all the other religions are relics of a time when we humans were making up gods…when we thought we needed them…when we had no way of ascertaining what was real in our world and what was myth. Some of us still look and hope to find a higher being that they can lay their troubles on, someone who can make them happier and richer and healthier, while forgetting to look inside themselves and finding their own will.

Not only that, check out this verse: Matthew 12 40:

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

yeah....hate to tell you this. i may have, er...overextended myself on the future worth of that tissue if you are dead, so , ahh....that ' guy i know' might just make it a twofer on tuesday whether we like it or not...

either way, might want to get crackin' on those miracles...

i thought, being the messiah and all you could just knock off my bookies 'associate' but it seems the whole preordained destiny clause is pretty tough to get out of. we'd have to deal with the unions on that one, and pal, you may be the messiah, but there are some things even YOU ain't gonna move...

So God's incapable of visiting back and forth?? If you will recall, he didn't hang with anyone 24/7 after Friday, right? As God, would he be limited by time and space like us? Even Joel Osteen can handle preaching in 2 places on a weekend. The deal was, Christ also gave face time to those who perished in the flood, you see God is a fair guy.(I bet it was a full house at every stop). On the other hand, when he was arrested on Thursday eve he was placed in a holding cell near the High Priests house "in the heart of the earth". That makes 3 D/N. If you take a tour in Jerusalem they will show you the traditional holding cell, its a deep cistern type cell cut into the Jerusalem limestone that you are lowered into.

"Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison, that aforetime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water" (1 Peter 3:18-20).

You are trying to change the prophesy after the fact.

Please note he was going to be "in the heart of the Earth" for three days and nights. The time in a holding cell may not have been pleasant but that does not meet the prophecy.

You are trying to change the prophecy after the fact to match what actually happened. Prophecies don't work like that. It is just another terribly failed prophesy of the Bible.

Actually the shroud is pun intended, shrouded in so much and many conflicting studies and findings , I don't think it's determinable to be or not to be authentic by that,

But the most compelling evidence is not in favor. 1st of all the supposed maker/faker came forward in the 14th century admitting it was faked.
But that was not enough to discourage them.

Many years later it was determined by C-14 that it was made in between 1260–1390 AD. Surprisingly 1390 was the year the faker came forward. Still it does not discourage believers because..

They allege it was repaired by reweaving the very spot the cuts of material were taken to test it.

Then a verified 1st century Jewish burial shroud was found in a tomb in Israel, and they were compared. It doesn't match.

Furthermore it is made of the wrong material according to Jewish customs of the 1st century.

Still they are not discouraged.

But now they find the tomb of Jesus with an ossuary that contains bones and the name.

Still no dent in belief.

It was found to contain pigment in the image.

It was found not to contain pigment in the image.

The face was found to not be in proper proportion to the body

It was found to be a 3D image.

It was said there was no humanly known way to create such an image.

A technique used for producing the image , according to
W. McCrone, was described in a book about medieval painting published in 1847 by Charles Lock Eastlake.
A special technique of painting on linen using tempera paint, which produces images with unusual transparent features.

It stinks of forgery, but I don't think it can be proven.
Because even if it was, the believers would go right on believing.
But anything that has so much controversy and conflicting evidence.
Is usually because drum roll..........

Nobody want's you to find the truth. Which is more than likely means...It's a fake.
