First of all, Adam and Eve came from the Bible. Before the Bible was written (which dates back to events of not much more than 2000 years ago) people were drawing pictures on caves of up to 30 000 years ago, creating stone tools, etc. The Homo genus evolved over 500 000 years ago, from a common ancestor to the ape and this was discovered because anthropologists dug up fossils that demonstrate this fact. This means that through verifyable dating analysis, this fossil was sitting there for 500 000 years. God did not put that fossil there. This is something that just happens, as all organic things must die.. By the way this happened in what is now called Africa. It was shortly after this that humans migrated, traveling up through europe and across ice bridges into North America. There were other hominid species like Homo neanderthalis, which coexisted with human for a while, but later became extinct. Whether there relationship was symbiotic or conflicting is another debate altogether.  God formed Adam and Eve from the dust of the earth which is brown,if you research you will see that the garden of Eden is located in Africa. Adam and Eve were black. The different races came about after the flood when Noah's sons and their wives traveled and settled in different places with different climates. Over time people began adapting to their environments thus the change of skin color and face structure. Also, there are plenty other races in the world besides black and white. Because many whites felt superior, many artists would depict Jesus and Adam and Eve to look European. This is why many people believe they were white. Jesus was Jewish, the original Jews were olive skinned with dark curly hair, some straight. American Jews have been mixed with whites. Africans are original blacks, whereas African Americans have been mixed with other races, just like jews. Over time many races have blended together esspecially in America "the melting pot".

If Adam and Eve were Caucasian where did blacks originate?

Adam and Eve were Caucasian? WERE they Caucasian? A possibility Since the question hypothecates that Adam & Eve are both very real characters as well as Caucasion, holding to that recognizes that they then had to be also exceptional and different than those biologically conceived purely of human parents and "natural means" that followed. And since were hypothecating, may as well include the "rational" of the thypothecation that they could give birth to elephant and giraffes too. So, wouldn't their maker simply have made them capable of giving birth and populating the earth as s/he wanted/planned? By either they birthing people of many types or providing the (genetic) ability to produce humans of many types. (Including the caucasions of many hair, eye, size and other differences). Note additional thought on Discussion page. You realize of course that in Bibles or religious art in say Asia, the characters have Asian characterisitics, as in ones for Africa they have African traits? new answer To help in answering this question, read " the Bible in Dream Symbols"isbn# 0-944386-23-7 From a young age I was bothered by the prospect of all of us descending from Adam and Eve because there would have to be incest involved. dI knew there had to be more to the story. As I eventually learned the universal language of mind and verified it's validity through my dreams, I began to understand how it applied to scriptures. In this language, the bible tells a story about me and my development. Adam is the subconscious mind and Eve is the conscious mind. The committment of this union allows for our progressive spiritual growth. To intellectualize it is grossly inefficient. Once we have developed enough, we begin to relate more and more to what is in subconscious mind. It takes direct experience. Meditation actually causes the two parts of mind to function together. Thereal information was hidden so we would have to put in some effort to find it. http://som.org/NewPages/Newsite07/SOMBar/Books/Titles/BibleInterpreted.HTML http://som.org/NewPages/Newsite07/SOMBar/Books/Titles/RAtlantis.HTML Answer There is nothing to suggest that they were Caucasian. Either way, given what is now known about the very little genetic differences between the races, there is every reason that dark skinned races could have come from light skinned people, and light-skinned from dark as well. See the Web Link 'Skin Deep ' for some information on this. ANSWER Blacks originated form Noah's son Ham. After the earth was destroyed by the flood, Noah's family began the population anew. His three sons, Shem, Japeth, and Ham were scattered around the world. Ham went to where the darker skin people originated, Eygpt, Africa, etc. Another Answer Adam and Eve was black. see related link "Origin of Black Mankind Affirmed!" on left .. So the question to be asked really is; "Where did the white race originated?" I think I figured this one out.the whole question of Adam and eve.here is an answer that might make some kind of sense.If you recall in most religious texts or bibles the same thing happened to Adam and eve before they bit into the fruit they did not even know they we're naked.So is it possible that the importance of the their ethnics has been an issue for this long because after they bit into the fruit of life could it have been before that sense they did not know they we're nake how are they going to know what race theywe're?So could it be that the origin of sin is the importance of ethniticity.Imagine what it would be like if noone knew what race they we're imagine how this would have changed history?the question is insane but, it does make sense also.

Were Adam and Eve black?

Since there is no proof that Adam and Eve ever existed in the first place, one can not be sure. However if they existed they should be black since the first humans came from Afrika. According to the current scientific opinion. . Answer Ibn Masud and other companions of the Prophet (PBUH) said that Allah the Almighty sent Gabriel onto the earth to said that Allah the Almighty sent Gabriel onto the earth to get Him clay therefrom. The earth said: "I seek refuge in Allah from your decreasing my quantity or disfiguring me." So Gabriel returned and did not take anything. He said: "My Lord, the land sought refuge in You and it granted." So Allah sent Michael for the same purpose, and the land sought refuge with Allah and it was granted. So he went back and said to Allah what Gabriel has said before him. Then Allah sent the Angel of Death, and the land sought refuge in Allah, the angel said: "I also seek refuge with Allah from returning without carrying out His command." So he took clay from the face of the earth and mixed it. He did not take from one particular place, but rather he took white, red, and black clay from different places. The Angel of Death ascended with it, Allah soaked the clay till it became sticky. Then Allah said to the angels: "Truly, I am going to create man from clay. So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him (his) soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him." (Chapter 38:71-72 Quran). . Answer Adam and Eve's color could have varied. But it might not be either white nor black. But a mix. The answer is maybe, but then maybe they were black but then white skin could be a result of temprature. Answer: Yes, they were what's called and seen as black.

Was there people before Adam and Eve?

According to Genesis 1&2, the answer is NO. According to most biology textbooks, who the heck are Adam and Eve? (Biology textbooks sometimes use the term "Mitochondrial Eve" to refer to a hypothetical woman who is in the ancestry of every living human, and a similar "Y-chromosomal Adam" to refer to a hypothetical male who is everybody's great-to-the-umptieth grandfather. However, all the evidence suggests that if these people actually existed, they lived thousands of years apart, with "Eve" being the earlier by probably 50,000 years.)

Why are all people descended from Eve but not Adam?

Answer . Adam and Eve are an allegorical story from the Christian Bible. They are not actual people who existed. So all humans are not physically descended from two people, that would be impossible. In the story, Eve is the originator of sinful thought and is the one who caves to temptation, which corresponds to the way of people. Eve represents humanity in the story. Answer . According to the Bible in Genesis, God created Adam and Eve. They were the first souls on Earth. Western Science has another concept of how people came to be here on Earth; evolution. Answer Well, since Adam and Eve really did exist, then all people are indeed descended from both Adam and Eve. Because it takes male and female to have offspring. There is no way we could be descended from just Eve. It is objectively wrong to say we are not descended from both Adam and Eve.

Were there any people before Adam and Eve?

Other Answers from our community: . No. According to the Biblical Creation, Adam was the firsthuman, created by the Lord on the 6th day. Eve was the firstwoman. . One could interpret the story of Adam and Eve (the first manand woman) as being the first to know good from evil (eating fromthe tree of knowledge between good and evil being a symbol ofthis). . There are essentially two models which answer this question. The first model is the creation account from the Bible, whichrecords that Adam and Eve constitute the first and only humanscreated 'in the beginning' as part of God's original creation. Inthe case of the people of course, already created elements wereused as constituent parts of both Adam and Eve. Under a second model, Adam and Eve were not the first people. Underthis model, which has very scant and conflicting evidence, thereare various proposed people existing before Adam and Eve. . The wording in Genesis Chapter 4, which clearly identifies thetechnologies existing within a few generations of Adam and Eve,suggests that they were certainly not the first people. Thesetechnologies took many thousands of years to develop, not just afew generations. The belief that Adam and Eve were the first peoplebecame erroneously insitutionalized in Christian dogma before thesciences of paleontology and archaeology existed and with a correctinterpretation of the Book of Genesis, using its own words, most ofthe conflicts between science and theology disappear. God plainlyand clearly states that animals were made on Day 5. Man is ananimal. On Day 6, He says, NOW let us make man in Our image. That'slike Henry Ford saying Now let us make Model Ts in colors otherthan black. Of course Ford made Model Ts before, as God made menbefore. . There is no need for any reason to postulate the existence ofanyone before Adam and Eve. It creates more problems than it solvesin terms of the evidence. The absence of multi-billions of humanremains if human history was as long as claimed would then requireexplanation. Also, the human population is also far too small andactually matches, conservatively, the c.6000 years of earth historythat the Bible proposes. . Genesis 4 makes it CLEAR that Cain went to build not a home ora farm or a village or a town, but a CITY. For whom? The land ofNod is mentioned, meanig the existence of political delineations.For whom? Another close descendant teaches the harp and the organ. To teachmusic there must be multiple instruments, a repertoire, students,and, of course, audience demand. . Undoubtedly. The time ascribed to Adam and Eve is only around6000 years ago, while science tells us that modern humans evolvesover 200,000 years ago, and that our earliest hominid ancestorslived about seven million years ago.The major Christiandenominations accept the scientific evidence for evolution over thescientifically defined timescales. For example, the position of theEpiscopal Church is :" The Episcopal Church has said that thetheory of evolution does not conflict with Christian faith. In2006, the General Convention affirmed, via Resolution A129, thatGod is creator and added that "the theory of evolution provides afruitful and unifying scientific explanation for the emergence oflife on earth, that many theological interpretations of origins canreadily embrace an evolutionary outlook, and that an acceptance ofevolution is entirely compatible with an authentic and livingChristian faith ."

Were there people before Adam and Eve?

There were. Adam and Eve were not the first humans. It's unclearwhether or not they were real people. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No, Adam was the first man and Eve the first woman.

How come white people owned black people?

because black people are filthy plantation workers, see what happened when they got off the plantations, Detroit is full of black people and have the highest murder rate?

Were Adam and Eve white?

They were no race other than 'human'. According to the Jewish religion all the people of the Earth are descended equally from them. Also, the Christian Greek Scriptures support this fact. Acts 17:26 tells us: ". . . From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth. . ."(NIV) The Bible gives us no idea what 'color' Adam and Eve were. ALL humans are various shades of 'earth-tones', from light beige to deep brown, and Adam and Eve could have been any of a rainbow of hues. They were given the ability to produce a variety of people(Genesis 1:28/Genesis 3:20) with a variety of skin tones, but Adam and Eve's color is never mentioned. Later, Noah's sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth(Genesis 5:32) continued to produce all the races on earth(Shem-Asian/Ham-African/Japheth-European). Scientifically speaking a literal Adam and Eve as they appear inthe Bible never existed. But let's say they did, they certainlywould not have been white.

These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Jehovah God made earth and heaven.. Gen 2:5 And no plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for Jehovah God had not caused it to rain upon the earth: and there was not a man to till the ground;. Gen 2:6 but there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.. Gen 2:7 And Jehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.. Gen 2:8 And Jehovah God planted a garden eastward, in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.. Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made Jehovah God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.. Gen 2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became four heads.. Gen 2:11 The name of the first is Pishon: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;. Gen 2:12 and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.. Gen 2:13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Cush..

Gen 2:18 And Jehovah God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.. Gen 2:19 And out of the ground Jehovah God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of the heavens; and brought them unto the man to see what he would call them: and whatsoever the man called every living creature, that was the name thereof.. Gen 2:20 And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; but for man there was not found a help meet for him.. Gen 2:21 And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof:. Gen 2:22 and the rib, which Jehovah God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.. Gen 2:23 And the man 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.. Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.. Gen 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.. I hope this help your understanding of the question

Were Adam and Eve the only people on earth?

Answer We know with certainty that people have lived on earth for millions of years now, so anyone supposedly created six thousand years ago could not possibly have been the only people on earth. Another thought: According to the Bible, YES, at one time, Adam and Eve were the only humans on earth.(Genesis 2:7,8,18, 21, 22)(Genesis 3:20)

When did Adam and Eve come to earth?

Adam came on the 6th day of creation (since 200 000 years ago). It was a little while after that when Eve was created by God. They were created in the heaven and did come to earth from outside.

Did white people come from black people?

It is believed that humans started out black, but as humanity spread further from the equator people got paler. A paler skin can make more vitamin D from sunlight, which is good for health. Sure, it'll sunburn easier, but if you're well away from the equator sunlight generally isn't as intense. So as years passed and humans spread north natural selection favored those who traded in the sun protection they didn't need for more vitamin D production they did need.

Who did Adam and Eve come from?

God created Adam from the ground. Adam in Hebrew means ground. After Adam, God took a bone from Adam and used it to create Eve.

From what region did Adam and Eve come?

Somewhere in northeastern Turkey was the region from which Adam and Eve were from. The identification of that place as the couple's homeland was based on the description of the Garden of Eden, in the book of Genesis. According to Genesis 2:10-14, Eden was located near the division of one body of water into four rivers. One of the four rivers so identified was the Euphrates, whose source is in northeastern Turkey.

If homo erectus were the first people on earth then where does Adam and Eve come from?

\nFrom the imagination of a people who had no access to science.\nThey are metaphorical symbols for the IDEA of human origin.\n. \nIn point of fact, Genesis can be seen to be an allegory of the true origins.\nFirst light, then stars and planets, then the earth, then the creatures of the sea then those of the land, and finally, mankind.\nBut first man lived innocently as did the other creatures of Eden...\n. \nUntil he ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.\n. \n. \nThis story fairly accurately lays out that man arose recently in the order of creation, and began as no different than any other animal... until he gained knowledge of good and evil.\n. \nGenesis is an allegory that says it was our sense of morality that separates us for the other animals.

Since Adam and Eve both were white people then how would blacks hispanics asians and indians have come to be?

A: Look beyond the biblical account and the Euro-centricinterpretation of that account. Actually the first modern humanswere black-skinned people who evolved in Africa over two hundredthousand years ago. Two hundred thousand years is long enough for people to adapt todifferent environments. For example, black skin is a disadvantagein Europe, where the sun is too weak for dark skin to produceenough vitamin D. Light coloured skin absorbs more sunlight and canproduce more vitamin D. Similar evolution took place in Asia andthen, more recently, the Americas.

Were there other people with Adam and Eve?

For some long time to come, there will continue to be confusion on this question. Biblical tradition has always stated that the world was created in an act of Special Creation some six thousand years ago, but scientists now know that the world is immensely old and that humans began to evolve around seven million years ago. If we accept the biblical story that Adam and Eve lived around six thousand years ago then, yes, there were other people at that time. Science tells us so. Answer Initially Adam was the only human, but was soon joined by Eve. As their descendants multiplied, there were many people living in the world with them since life-spans were very long at that time.

Did Adam come from Eve?

No. Taking Genesis literally, Eve came from Adam. She was formed from Adam's rib which God removed.

Did black people come from white people?

No. Humans started out black, but as humanity spread further from theequator people got paler. A paler skin can make more vitamin D fromsunlight, which is good for health. So as years passed naturalselection favored those who traded in the sun protection theydidn't need for more vitamin D protection they did need.

If Adam and Eve had only three sons where did the rest of the people come from?

Nobody knows for sure. Some have speculated that in a world wheresin had not yet firmly taken root, that ince$t would not have beenthe taboo that it is today. Others have speculated that perhapsAdam & Eve were not the only (first humans), they were the onesthe biblical writers chose to focus on. Cain did take a wife fromanother land (the land of Nod), which would support #2, however thelong lifespans in Genesis mean that many generations would havebeen alive simultaneously) she could have still been a cousin or agreat niece or something like that.

Are all people made from Adam and Eve?

Technically, yes we are. But that does not mean if you want to start a family you will be with your own family member. God created more people after Adam & Eve so it wouldn't be like that.

If God created the heavens and the earth then why are people different colours and speak different languages If Adam and Eve were white then where did coloured people come from?

First question being: who said they were white? geographically speaking "white" people are native to the continent of Europe....so named AFTER the creation of Adam and Eve. Second point: If Adam and Eve were cast out from Heaven, then sent to live on earth, which part of the earth would that be? from all accounts we have, it seems like life for humankind as we know it on earth began somewhere in the Middle East. Features and Characteristics of these people (native to the Middle Eastern countries) ARE NOT "WHITE". lastly, nothing is impossible when you speak of what the creator can create. I dont like what your question implies....outside of your thinking...the world did not begin with 'white' people and most assuredly won't end with them either. It seems common sense to me that if life began with two people (of any nationality, if that even existed in the beginning), then thru what we know as incest (relations between siblings) had to have taken place. Common sense may also tell us that as the population grew, folks began to migrate to other parts of the world expanding and transitioning culture, language, human characteristics based on region of inhabitation (out of necessity to exist). and so on and so on up until the current time period. "coloured" people came from the same place as 'white' people! The question should have been, since in terms of numbers there are many more people of colour on earth than those with paler skin tones and the regions where the original man inhabited was a warmer climate (thus darker skin and wider noses would be natural), "Where did White people come from"?

Did cavemen come first or Adam and Eve?

Modern humans existed over two hundred thousand years ago, and are known to have occupied caves wherever suitable caves existed. The story of Adam and Eve places them around six thosand years ago. Although biblical stories should not be compared with scientific evidence of pre-history, it could be said that our early cavemen ancestors came long before the time attributed to Adam and Eve.

Adam and Eve were both white people?

Whom, then, are the descendants of Adam and Eve? The evidence strongly indicates that it is the white race. The word "Adam" in the Hebrew is "aw-dam'", which means "to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy". See for yourself in Strong's Hebrew Lexicon. This is also supported by the fact that the people primarily concerned with the "traditions of Abraham" over the course of modern history have almost exclusively been the white peoples (and "hybrids" or mongrels with significant white ancestry...eg, Arabs). For thousands of years, blacks and asians were isolated in Africa and the Far East and overwhelmingly unconcerned or unaware of the traditions of Adam, Abraham, and their descendants -- with the exception of the last few hundred years when white missionaries spread Christianity among blacks and asians.

Was Adam and Eve the oldest living people?

No. Genesis 5:5"So all the days of Adam that he lived amounted to nine-hundred and thirty years and he died." Methuselah lived to be 969 years(oldest living person).Genesis 5:27"So all the days of Methuselah amounted to nine hundred and sixty-nine years and he died."

Did you come from Adam and Eve or the apes?

Some argue that humans did not originate from any animal ancestor,but were created in much the same form as we are today. They do notaccept the strong evidence to indicate a documented change from oneform to another.

How did Adam and Eve come about?

According to the Bible, they were created by God. Adam was formed from the dust of the earth, and Eve was formed from Adam's rib. (Genesis 2:7,18, 21,22)

How did ancient people know about Adam and Eve?

A: Of course ancient people did not know about Adam and Eve. A realistic statement on this was made recently by Cardinal George Pell in a televised debate, when he said that the story of Adam and Eve is a myth - a religious story told for religious purposes. There never was an Adam or Eve.

What country did Adam and Eve originally come from?

A: Leon R. Kass ( The Beginning of Wisdom: Reading Genesis ) says that the Garden of Eden is a purely mythic place, as indicated by the fact that there can be no single terrestrial place that would serve as the common source of these four widely separated rivers. True, the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers do meet, but the lands the text associates with the first two rivers are clearly separated from the Tigris-Euphrates valley, the first to the north, the second way to the south. The location was purely mythic and therefore is and was no real country. A: The Garden of Eden was somewhere in the middle east, but nobody knows it's exact location. At the time of Adam and Eve, there were no "countries" formed, no national borders or boundaries.

How did we get black races from Adam and Eve if they were both white?

Eurocentric portrayals of Adam and Eve do show them as white Caucasians, but if the ealry Hebrews thought about it at all, they would have imagined them to be brown like themselves. Neither of these views matters in a question on anthropology, which this is, because to answer this we need to ask the sciences. The scientific answer is that the first people were not Adam and Eve, living somewhere around the Middle East just 6000 years ago, but people who lived in southern or eastern Africa over 200,000 years ago. Our ancestors were all black. After the early humans migrated into Europe, the black skin that protected them from the hot sun of Africa was now a disadvantage, because they could not produce enough vitamin D from the weak northern sunlight. The people in Europe gradually evolved lighter skin which absorbs more ultraviolet rays and therefore allows us to produce vitamin D more readily.

What are facts that show Adam and Eve were white?

There are no facts that support the notion that Adam and Eve existed, other than the story in the Bible. Since those who wrote the Bible were brown-skinned, they would have imagined Adam and Eve to be brown like themselves.

If God created Adam and Even how come some people are black and others white and others colored?

It is apparent that God loves diversity as can be seen in nature. Some have said that the sons of Noah permeated the 3 primary colors post-flood as follows: Shem is white; Ham is black; and Japheth is yellow - either through them or their wives we note these 3 colors. Some scholars state that the 1st very powerful ruler of cities was Nimrod who was black and the grandson of Ham. Yet these same scholars agree that Nimrod's son was white. Through intermarriage, we get the various differing 'shades' of skin tone. What is important, however, is how we will all look like as spiritual children of the God Family.

Did Adam really come before eve?

Yes. Genesis 2:7+15 tells us that God created man from the dust of the earth and settle him (alone) in the Garden of Eden. Afterward, Genesis 2:18,21+22 tells us that God created the woman from Adam's rib.

Did Adam and eve come from Africa?

A: If indeed Adam and Eve were the first humans, they wouldnecessarily have come from Africa, as this is where the firsthumans came from. If we look at the biblical story of Adam and Eve, we find them inthe Garden of Eden, which ought to be able to be located by thefour rivers that flowed out of it. Two of these, the Tigris, andEuphrates, would clearly place the Garden in south-west Asia andtherefore not in Africa. However, the Gihon is traditionallyassociated with Africa, while the supposed location of the Pishonis unknown but thought to be far to the north. There could be noone place associated with the Garden of Eden, so we can regard themas coming from wherever we wish.

How did black people come to the world if adam and eve were white?

The first beings that we would recognize as humans probably lived in Africa and likely had dark hair and complexions. As people migrated to colder areas, they no longer needed a great deal of melanin in their skin to protect them from the sun, and the races began to evolve as we know them today. So, to answer your question more directly, Adam and Eve, the progenitors of the human race, probably were people of color.

Were Adam and Eve the first black people in the Bible?

The race of Adam and Eve is not mentioned in the bible, but from anevolutionary point of view, they would most definitely have beenblack. We know this as, from a genetic point of view, black peoplehave less additions to their DNA as the other homo-sapiens in theworld; they are a sort of 'base-model' for the rest of humanity,and so if Adam and Eve were indeed the first humans, they wouldmost deffinately have been black. ANOTHER ANSWER: The "inspired" word "man" or "mankind" [created in the image ofGod] in the original Hebrew manuscripts is " 'adam": "And said God, Let us make MANKIND ['adam] in Our image, accordingto Our likeness..." (Gen.1:26 LIT LiteralBible w/Strong's Definitions ). Strong's Definitions defines " 'adam" [aw-dawm'] as"RUDDY"... or RED! With the connotation probably referring to the"red clay" of the earth from which God made man. Little else in the creation account makes any reference to man'scolor. God included all of the genetic traits [color, race, etc.,that are evident today] within the man that would eventually emergeamong the generations of mankind with the passage of time. So, according to the creation account in the Bible... the first"man" [and probably the woman, too, who was created FROM the man]were RED. Because that's what " 'adam" means. Answer: According to Jewish tradition, Adam and Eve were either what wewould describe today as Caucasian or Mediterranean in appearance.

How do you know Adam And Eve were white?

In His prayer to His Father in heaven, Jesus [ the CreatorGod of the Old Testament; the LORD and the great IAM - John 1:3 ] reveals to us: "...' Thy Word [ the Bible ] ISTRUTH .'" (John 17:17) So it is, then, that we can all " know " some things aboutAdam and Eve by " reading the Scriptures " [ the TRUTH ]and simply " BELIEVING " what it says. And the Truth is, that the Scriptures don't say that they were" white ." The " Holy Spirit-inspired " Scripture says: "And said God, 'Let US make MANKIND in OUR image...'" (Gen.1:26 LIT Literal Bible w/Strong'sDefinitions ) The " inspired " Word for " mankind " in this passage is" ' adam " [pronounced: aw-dawm ']. Which Strong'sdefinitions defines as RUDDY ... which means RED ! This makes further sense when taken with the " inspired "passage in Genesis 2:7, where we're informed that: "And formed Yahweh God - the man { out of } DUST FROM THE GROUND ..."( LIT ). Strong's definitions reveals that " {out of} dust " means:" DUST (as powdered or gray); hence CLAY , EARTH , MUD ...". Have you ever seen the " red clay " of the earth? From theScriptures, then, " we can know " [ if we can allowourselves to believe what they say ] that the appearance of thetwo people created by God [ one male and one female from whomsprang the rest of the human race ] were of a " reddish "or " ruddy " hue.
