Did you know that the creation story is written as a parable? So it is that when we consider the Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve, much more lies beneath the surface of its external presentation. Underneath the spiritual inspiration of the words of men is found the wisdom of a Creator whose purpose from the beginning challenges our hearts and minds to discover the life that is found in His Son.
These comments address a book by geneticist, Dennis Venema, and theologian, Scot McKnight. Venema establishes that Adam and Eve cannot be the actual parents of all humans. McKnight establishes the stories of Adam and Eve are written in styles and themes of ancient Near East literature. My goal is to re-articulate their arguments using the category-based nested form and the first singularity.

Genesis, the seven days of Creation ... Where does the text that makes up the first part of the Bible come from?
Is its text a mere introductory poem ... or is it a narrative?
The author has found that hidden in the bottom of the plot there is someone.
Someone who observes; someone who tells. Someone who tells what he observes, and the location of the observer.
