    Fossils that make a mess out of the alleged human evolution tree.

    Red Deer Cave people - Wikipedia

    Those people lived in China no more than 15,000 years ago which was after human migration to the Americas. Look them up on the evolution tree found here :

    Homo - Wikipedia

    And you'll see that they are classified as preceding homo heidelbergensis, the alleged forefather of both modern man, the Neanderthals and the Denisovans.

    There's also an entry alongside it of a "Homo Erectus" that lived in Asia 30,000 years ago which was after human migration to Australia. That's the general predecessor of homo heidelbergensis.

    What homo heidelbergensis and the alleged offshoots the Neanderthals, the Denisovans and modern man have in common is that their brain size is quite similar. Homo Erectus has a smaller brain but some of the skulls that they've found had a brain that is within the parameters of modern human beings. Some of them were in fact larger than the brain of the French novelist Anatole France which was measured at 1,000 cubic centimeters after his death.



    And his head looks similar to the reconstructed heads of a typical Homo Erectus. There's nothing that suggests that Anatole France was anything less than a fully functioning human being with a brilliant intellect.

    Adam and Eve should have the same DNA being that she was created from his rib. The variants would be the genes which separate females from males.

    That sounds like an ultra-literal interpretation to me.

    We don't really know what God did with the rib or even if that statement is to be taken literally. We know that the serpent is allegorical of Satan according to the book of Revelation, and not just your average talking snake.

    Scripture says that God made Adam from the dust and Eve from Adam.

    Seems pretty clear to me:
    1 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

    23 And Adam said:

    "This is now bone of my bones
    And flesh of my flesh;
    She shall be called Woman,
    Because she was taken out of Man."

    We know ribs are tasty to eat so Eve was made from a rib so she would be tasty for Adam to love her
    I'm not sure if that would pass theology class but makes sense to me
