  • Adam and Eve are a myth. Here is how the various skin colours appeared: "Melanin comes in two types: pheomelanin (red) and eumelanin (dark brown to nearly black). Both amount and type are determined by four to six genes which operate under incomplete dominance. One copy of each of those genes is inherited from each parent. Each gene comes in several alleles, resulting in a great variety of different skin tones. The evolution of the different skin tones is thought to have occurred as follows: the haired ancestors of humans, like modern great apes, had light skin under their hair. Once they encountered baldness, they evolved dark skin, needed to prevent low folate levels since they lived in sun-rich Africa. (The skin cancer connection is probably of secondary importance, since skin cancer usually kills only after the reproductive age and therefore does not exert much evolutionary pressure.) When humans migrated to less sun-intensive regions in the north, low vitamin D3 levels became a problem and light skin color re-emerged. The Inuit and Yupik are special cases: even though they live in an extremely sun-poor environment, they have retained their relatively dark skin. This can be explained by the fact that their traditional animal-based diet provides plenty of vitamin D." "Tracking back the statistical patterns in variations in DNA among all known people sampled who are alive on the Earth today, it appears that From 1.2 million years ago for a million years, the ancestors of all people alive were as dark as today's Africans. For that period of a million years, human ancestors lived naked without clothing. The descendants of any people who migrate North from equatorial Africa will mutate to become light over time because the evolutionary constraint keeping Africans' skin dark decreases generally the further North a people migrates."

  • They are the first man and woman and lived over in the Middle East area.(or so I think from reading the Bible). I have no clue what their skin color was, but probably olive skinned like the Middle Eastern people of today. Good question. No one knows!! haha.
  • What ever God wanted!!
  • Well, they were in N.Africa! What would be your guess?! ;-)
  • WATER VAPOR CANOPY SHOULD HAD PROTECTECTED PRE FLOOD PEOPLE AGAINST UV RAYS, SO THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO MAKE THEM TANNED, SO THERE WAS GOOD CHANCE THAT THEY WERE MILKY WITH ROSY HUE, ( LIKE DAVID, WHO IS DESCRIBED AS BEING 'ADMONY', OR RUDDY; SAME ROOT IS IN CONNECTION WITH ADAM'S NAME: BLOOD. SINCE ADMONI IS ALSO RENDERED AS BLUSHING, THAT IS SHOWING BLOOD, THAT COULD GIVE YOU IDEA, ONLY FAIR SKIN SHOWS BLOOD, OR IS BLUSHING.),OR MAYBE ORANGE HUE.THERE IS A LOT OF MIDDLE EASTERNERS TODAY WITH VERY FAIR COMPLEXION AND LIGHT EYES. ALSO, THERE IS A LOT OF MEDITERRANEAN TYPES WITH VERY DARK SKIN, BUT ON THE SURFACES OF SKIN THAT WAS NOT EXPOSED TO SUN, THEY ARE VERY WHITE .MANY FAIR COMPLEXIONED PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO ATTAIN DARK SKIN, MANY ARE JUST PRONE TO GET SUN BURNED; BUT AS A PERFECT PEOPLE, THEY SURE HAD THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE MELANIN, WHEN THEY DAMAGED SKIN SOMEHOW (KEEP IN MIND THAT MELANIN IS PRODUCED NOT ONLY WHEN BEING EXPOSED TO UV RAYS, BUT ALSO WHEN SKIN IS TRAUMATISED FROM OTHER FACTORS- ALSO REMEMBER THAT EVERY TAN IS SIGN OF INJURY, SO AS A PERFECT COUPLE THEY SURELY DIDN'T HAVE DAMAGED SKIN IN EDEN) SIMILARLY, NOAH'S SONS NOT SO FAR FROM PERFECTION, AS WE ARE TODAY, ALSO HAD THAT POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE A LOT OF PROTECTIVE MELANINE, AS THEY NEEDED IT A LOT AFTER FLOOD, AND ALL PEOPLE DESCEND FROM THOSE THREE FAMILIES.
  • Humankind is only 6000 years old, there is linguistic, historical,... and SCIENTIFIC evidence And it didn't originate in Africa: Laurence Loewe and Siegfried Scherer, “Mitochondrial Eve: The Plot Thickens,” Trends in Ecology & Evolution, Vol. 12, 11 November 1997, p. 422. Thomas J. Parsons et al., “A High Observed Substitution Rate in the Human Mitochondrial DNA Control Region,” Nature Genetics, Vol. 15 April 1997, p. 365 Alan R. Templeton et al., “Human Origins and Analysis of Mitochondrial DNA Sequences,” Science, Vol. 255, 7 February 1992, pp. 737–739. “African Eve Gets Lost in the ‘Trees’,” Science News, Vol. 141, 22 February 1992, p. 123.
  • They were black.
  • similar to this I'm guessing
  • Whatever you want them to be, ha A better question is, what skin color was Jesus? =P
  • Unearthed mosaics from 1st.cent. Sepphoris (about an hour’s walk from Nazareth-Yesua's home village),especially those from the unearthed synagogues, depict many Galileans,so there you go. Only, he was described as being spotless, unblemished.
