adam and eve

A guy was digging in his vegie patch at home when he came across a dead body of a man, naked. Immediately he knew this man was Adam - the Adam, from the bible. A few minutes later he came across another naked body, a lady this time. Again, he immediately knew this was Eve - the Eve, from the bible.

How did he know that they were actually Adam and Eve?

Re: adam and eve

Adam: A fig leaf, and a half eaten apple?

Eve: Three fig leaves, and a worn jaw bone?

Re: adam and eve

They had no possessions with them; there was just their bodies.

(leaves and apples count as possessions smile)

Re: adam and eve

He'd know Adam was Adam because of the missing rib (obviously their bodies would have rotted away revealing the skeletons)!

Re: adam and eve

I suppose that could be right, Rora, but not the answer I am looking for...

Oh, rats, that was my best guess, gone before I even had a chance to mention it.

Re: adam and eve

Okay, here's a hint. They look exactly like humans, but one thing is missing.

I hope I didn't give it away...if I did can you delete this immediately, MathsIsFun or Zach please? lol

Re: adam and eve

Rora, all men have one less rib. big_smile

As for the question, I'll have to mull it over. Hrm...

Re: adam and eve

Considering the concept, I'd like to say that the other day I learned off a cheesestring packet that 1 in 20 people have an extra rib.

Adam and Eve look exactly like humans but one thing is missing ... parents?

Re: adam and eve

But how would the guy have known that they have no parents?

You're kind of on the right track, though.

Re: adam and eve

Adam has a demon on him?

Or am I thinking too biblical?

Re: adam and eve

Yes, too biblical Zach! You don't really need to know anything to do with the Bible for this, except that God created Adam and Eve.

Re: adam and eve

You got it in one, Rora. Well done...

*round of applause*

And Mr T, they had no parents and were not 'born', so that's why they have no belly button.
