• While it doesn't explicitly say this, it seems insinuated that everything was created with age. They were adults.
  • 2-20-2017 If the bible doesn't say, you just don't know.
  • I don't know, but even if they were babies I doubt if they would appreciate seeing their names spelled with lower case initials. How disrespectful can one get?
  • They were created as adults. They were the first humans; (Genesis 2:7) And Jehovah God went on to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living person. (Genesis 2:21, 22) "So Jehovah God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep, and while he was sleeping, he took one of his ribs and then closed up the flesh over its place. 22 And Jehovah God built the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman, and he brought her to the man."
  • As adults to begin with...
  • Adults. Otherwise the Bible would say God created a boy and a girl instead of a man and a woman.
  • 3-12-2017 A figure of speech is a departure from the normal patterns of language for the purpose of emphasizing something. The simplest figure of speech is the SIMILE. A simile emphasizes a similarity of two things by merely saying it: "You are like a dog", or "You are as a dog". The figure rests entirely on one word. A METAPHOR emphasizes a similarity of two things by saying they are the same; "You are a dog". Next comes a big word: HYPOCATASTASIS. This is a Greek word for name-calling. Hypocatastasis just calls the fellow "Dog!" See Luke 13:32 "that fox", and Genesis 3:1 "the serpent". A PARABLE is an extended figure of speech; a story based on a simile, metaphor, or hypocatastasis. If the story is possible, it is a MYTH. If the story is impossible, it is a FABLE. If a fable includes an explanation of the meaning, it is an ALLEGORY. Don't confuse any of these with LEGEND, which is a supposedly true but unverified historical account (Adam and Eve, for example). These terms are not used with any precise meaning in modern discourse. For instance, most people think 'allegory' means "a story full of religious symbolism beyond human comprehension". But when discussing figures of speech they are very precisely defined. Here is a book that lists about 900 figures found in the bible. It is almost the only work in the subject for the last two thousand years:

      The Bible knows well about this sort of answer...(Matthew 23:24) Blind guides, who strain out the gnat but gulp down the camel!
  • They were created as adults, with Eve from Adam;s rib,,,so commonsense would say they had no ' bellybuttons'...
