I often find myself wondering about things, and lately I've been wondering about Adam and Eve. Specifically, what did they know that the rest of mankind has had to learn?
Some things are pretty obvious. They could walk, talk and feed themselves. But could they swim? Skip a rock? Dance? Sing? What did they know about math?
What do you think? What kinds of knowledge/abilities might God have given them that the rest of us have to learn?
Interesting question...Adam knew how to speak right off the bat...he knew how to walk, and his autonomic system was fully functional, demonstrating that the genetic "knowledge" was fully intact!!!
He knew how to work the ground for food...he must have understood what to do sexually in order to have children, and of the birthing processes in order to know what to do in order to get his children to start breathing after birth...I don't think it was by accidental coincidence that man knew metallurgy after only a few generations. Seeing as some of their knowledge might have been lost after the flood, we can also see a certain level of knowledge that we would have to learn today...
When they came to the plain of Shinar in Genesis 11, they began to build the tower of babel, saying "Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly
." this is actually quite insightful, because the dialogue says that the tower reached into the heavens (atmosphere), so possibly two miles into the sky(?). A regular brick fashioned without being thoroughly burned, would only sustain about a hundred pounds before they began to crumble under the weight of those bricks on top of them...but a fired brick has been demonstrated to hold up to 600 pounds before crumbling. with all the math in place, they could have built a ziggurat tower in their days higher than the Empire State building...high enough where it would be counter-productive because they would not be able to breathe.
Where did they get that
It would be neat to say that Adam could also levitate and fly, like a certain TBN preacher has stated, but I think that is ludicrous nonsense........
