I Hate It When..

When people say, "It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve."

First of all, it'd be pretty stupid of God to create the first two humans if they couldn't reproduce. He'd be like, "Damn, I should've thought that one through.."

And don't forget that Eve sorta.. doomed humanity.. Steve might've listened to God..

Also, Adam and Eve were lots of things, you could make up your own version for anything really..

Ex. "Adam and Eve were white, not black." or "It's Eve's fault that we're not chilling in the Garden Of Eden right now.. Women are good for nothing.."

I'm not saying you should actually say this, I was just bringing it to your attention..

I just hate when people say ignorant things like that..

Anyone who believes that all of humanity came from one dude named Adam and one chick named Eve need to try to think beyond a 5 year old level. Even if you are a Jew or a Christian, you have to realize that that part of the scriptures is allegorical. The different books of the scriptures are written in different styles. The book of Psalms, for instance, is poetry. The Gospel according to Matthew was written to be taken literally, like a newspaper story (whether you believe the story or not, that was the style in which it was written). The creation story was written in a different style. Google "allegory" if you don't know the word.

1 Corinthians 6:18
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.

1Corinthians 6:8-10
On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren. Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor HOMOSEXUALS, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

Any one who says stuff loke that is just being stupid.

You guys are right, it is pretty stupid. I don't believe all the metaphors in the Bible, but I made this story just to say that I was annoyed that people would use the Adam and Eve thing as their argument against gays.

Sorry, I didn't mean to make it seem like I was bashing the Bible or anything.

Come on, just because you believe in the Bible you don't have to believe all the metaphors. I'm not a christian, but even when i was (I was raised as a christian) I never saw Adam and Eve as more than a metaphor.
It's funny because at the time i didn't realize that the catholic community where i was raised was more "progressive" than most.

Otherwise how do you explain the descendants(grandchildren) of Adam and Eve? ******?

On the Adam and Steve thing:
Just because Adam and Eve were straight doesn't mean that gays don't exist, it just means that as far as we know Adam and Eve were.
for example, say Eve was a brunette, that doesn't mean blondes don't exist.
or say Adam had blue eyes, that doesn't mean people with brown eyes don't exist.
it just mean that as individuals these two people had brown hair and blue eyes and were straight.

Someone who uses the "Adam & Eve/Steve" argument against gay people immediately negates any serious intelligence on their part. How anyone in the 21st c. can actually believe this old fable is beyond comprehension so I would not give them the time of day let alone let alone try to reason with them.
