Adam and Eve were gripped by fear and panic as they gazed over the wide open space before them.

Expelled from the Garden of Eden, they found themselves in a less hospitable environment than they were accustomed to.

Interacting with a tribe of hominins, however, improved their chances of survival.

Adam and Eve learned to adapt and to hunt and cook meat on an open fire to supplement their plant-based diet. More importantly, they were taught how to protect themselves from predators eager to eat them alive.

Life was tough, but they made it thus saving their lineage from extinction.

    Thank goodness there were other hominins. At least until their descendents wiped them out

    Proof that it’s difficult to survive on your own out there!

    Now they’ve been accepted by the tribe, they could team up to launch an invasion of the Garden, try to get back in!

      it appeared that the garden was heavily fortified. adam and eve and their descendants ultimately ruled the earth and caused the extinction of other hominins.

    Fun story! Good thing they found others. We’re bad enough without all the inbreeding that’d have ensued otherwise. πŸ˜‰

      gabi:

      of course, they did. even the bible said so. for instance, when cain became a fugitive, he was given the “mark of cain” supposedly so nobody could exact vengeance on him. he also found a wife and built a city. πŸ™‚

    I think your mingling of the story of the Adam and Eve from the bible, with palaeontology’s account of a variety of species of hominin is most entertaining.

    Dear Plaridel,

    One does have to wonder where Cain and Abel’s wives came from. I enjoyed your take.

    Shalom,

      it was possible they came from a tribe living outside the garden.

          nobody really knows the true story and whether they actually existed or not. one’s faith is the final arbiter.
