  11. “If the Prodigal Son’s a parable, and if Adam and Eve are metaphors, then maybe God is just figure of speech.” ~ Dan Barker
  12. “People have been killing because of racial differences since the time of Adam and Eve, but in this country, racism has been primarily aimed at African Americans.” ~ Bob Cousy

  13. “Had Adam tenderly reproved his wife, and endeavored to lead her to repentance instead of sharing in her guilt, I should be much more ready to accord to man that superiority which he claims; but as the facts stand disclosed by the sacred historian, it appears to me that to say the least, there was as much weakness exhibited by Adam as by Eve. They both fell from innocence, and consequently from happiness, but not from equality.” ~ Sarah Moore Grimke
  14. “It gets to seem as if way back in the Garden of Eden after the fall, Adam and Eve had begged the Lord to forgive them and He, in his boundless exasperation, had said, “All right, then. Stay. Stay in the Garden. Get civilized. Procreate. Muck it up.” And they did.” ~ Diane Arbus

  18. “But think of Adam and Eve like an imaginary number, like the square root of minus one: you can never see any concrete proof that it exists, but if you include it in your equations, you can calculate all manner of things that couldn’t be imagined without it.” ~ Philip Pullman

  20. “None of us can boast about the morality of our ancestors. The record does not show that Adam and Eve were ever married.” ~ E. W. Howe

  21. “We’ve fallen for the devil’s lie. His most basic strategy, the same one he employed with Adam and Eve, is to make us believe that sin brings fulfillment. However, in reality, sin robs us of fulfillment. Sin doesn’t make life interesting; it makes life empty. Sin doesn’t create adventure; it blunts it. Sin doesn’t expand life; it shrinks it. Sin’s emptiness inevitably leads to boredom. When there’s fulfillment when there’s beauty when we see God as he truly is-an endless reservoir of fascination-boredom becomes impossible.” ~ Randy Alcorn
  22. “Woman was given to man as an helpmeet. That complementary association is ideally portrayed in the eternal marriage of our first parents—Adam and Eve. They labored together; they had children together; they prayed together, and they taught their children the gospel together. This is the pattern God would have all righteous men and women imitate.” ~ Ezra Taft Benson
  23. “Through humility, soul-searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God.” ~ Unknown
  24. “When our first parents were driven out of Paradise, Adam is believed to have remarked to Eve, “My dear, we live in an age of transition.”” ~ William Ralph Inge

  26. “The curse of Adam and Eve that fell upon the earth because of their sin will be lifted when Christ returns.” ~ Tim LaHaye
  27. “State-sanctioned marriage is a civil contract period. A contract is not a judgment of moral value. It is a legal agreement between two parties that testifies to a meeting of minds between those consenting entities. It is not a religious act or rite and so has nothing to do with Adam and Eve or Steve or even Harvey.” ~ Harvey Fierstein
  28. “Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived. It is a pity that this is still the only knowledge of their wives at which some men seem to arrive.” ~ F. H. Bradley

  29. “The first pages of memory are like the old family Bible. The first leaves are wholly faded and somewhat soiled with handling. But, when we turn further and come to the chapters where Adam and Eve were banished from Paradise, then, all begins to grow clear and legible.” ~ Max Muller , Adam and Eve quotes Bible
  30. “God created the first man, whom he called Adam. Then God created a woman, whom he named Eve; and this man and woman were given the power from Jehovah God to reproduce their kind, that is to say, to cause conception and birth of children.” ~ Joseph Franklin Rutherford

  32. “I wonder what Adam and Eve think of it by this time.” ~ Marianne Moore

  33. “There is nothing new about humanism. It is the yielding to Satan’s first temptation of Adam and Eve: “Ye shall be as gods.” (Gen. 3:5)” ~ Billy Graham
  34. “After creating the heaven, the earth, the ocean, and the entire animal kingdom, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing He said to them was “Don’t.”” ~ Bill Cosby
  35. “But Adam and Eve thought that it was they who were determining the course they would follow, that they were only exercising their autonomous right to determine for themselves the true, the good, and the beautiful. They became, in their understanding, their own authority, and their fallen descendants ever since that time have claimed a similar autonomy from God” ~ Robert L. Reymond
  36. “Adam and Eve had their midlife Crisis when they realized that they were older than sin!” ~ Jonathan Edward Caldwell

  37. “The Bible contains legendary, historical, and ethical contents. It is quite possible to consider them separately, and one doesn’t have to accept the legends in order to get the ethics. Fundamentalists make a grave mistake to insist on the letter of the writings, because they drive away many who can’t swallow the Adam-and-Eve bit.” ~ Isaac Asimov
  38. “[On the Adam and Eve story:] They both fell from innocence, and consequently from happiness, but not from equality.” ~ Sarah Moore Grimke
  39. “If God made Adam and Eve, they had children… wait a minute… that means someone banged their sister!” ~ Carlos Mencia
  40. “I wish I could make him understand that a loving good heart is riches enough and that without it intellect is poverty.” ~ Mark Twain

  41. “And I, the for­mer mys­tic, was think­ing: Yes, man is stronger, greater than God. When Adam and Eve de­ceived You, You chased them from par­adise. When You were dis­pleased by Noah’s generation, You brought down the Flood. When Sodom lost Your fa­vour, You caused the heav­ens to rain down fire and damna­tion. But look at these men whom You have be­trayed, al­low­ing them to be tortured, slaugh­tered, gassed, and burned, what do they do? They pray be­fore You! They praise Your name!” ~ Elie Wiesel
  42. “Paul Ryan, who teamed up with Akin in the House to sponsor harsh anti-abortion bills, may look young and hip and new generation, with his iPod full of heavy metal jams and his cute kids. But he’s just a fresh face on a Taliban creed – the evermore antediluvian, anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-gay conservative core. Amiable in khakis and polo shirts, Ryan is the perfect modern leader to rally medieval Republicans who believe that Adam and Eve cavorted with dinosaurs.” ~ Maureen Dowd
  43. “Adam and Eve and all forms of life, both animal and plant, were created in immortality; that is, when first placed on this earth, all forms of life were in a state of immortality. There was no death in the world; death entered after the fall.” ~ Bruce R. McConkie
  44. “The new earth will complete God’s program. It will be what God intended for Adam and Eve in Eden.” ~ Paul P. Enns

  45. “Nor can the Apostle mean that Eve only sinned; or that she only was Deceived, for if Adam sinned willfully and knowingly, he became the greater Transgressor.” ~ Mary Astell
  46. “The true unconscious is the well-head, the fountain of real motivity. The sex of which Adam and Eve became conscious derived from the very God who bade them be not conscious of it.” ~ D. H. Lawrence
  47. “People are said to believe in God or to disbelieve in Adam and Eve. But in such cases what is believed or disbelieved is that there is an entity answering a certain description. This, which can be believed or disbelieved is quite different from the actual entity (if any) which does answer the description. Thus the matter of belief is, in all cases, different in kind from the matter of sensation or presentation, and error is in no way analogous to hallucination. A hallucination is a fact, not an error; what is erroneous is a judgment based upon it.” ~ Bertrand Russell
  48. “After all, he put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden naked as jaybirds!” ~ Bettie Page

  49. “When Adam found his rib was gone
    He cursed and sighed and cried and swore
    And looked with cold resentment on
    The creature God has used it for.” ~ John Hollander
  50. “Do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don’t.” ~ Kirk Cameron
  51. “The animal creation shall again gladden a new Paradise as they did when Adam and Eve called them by name, and caressed them and mingled in their society. The Bible everywhere indicates that the new earth will be a counterpart of the old before the fall, so we must conclude that lower animals who were created before man and have been his companions before and since the fall will be restored with him in the “new Creation”” ~ Ed Buckner
  52. “Adam and Eve were the first of all unions to defy management.” ~ Evan Esar

  53. “The moment in the account of Adam and Eve in the book of Genesis is when they realize they’re naked and try and cover themselves with fig leaves. That seemed to me a perfect allegory of what happened in the 20th century with regard to literary modernism. Literary modernism grew out of a sense that, “Oh my god! I’m telling a story! Oh, that can’t be the case, because I’m a clever person. I’m a literary person! What am I going to do to distinguish myself?…a lot of modernism does seem to come out of a fear of being thought an ordinary storyteller.” ~ Philip Pullman
  54. “That was the birth of sin. Not doing it, but KNOWING about it. Before the apple, [Adam and Eve] had shut their eyes and their minds had gone dark. Now, they peeped and pried and imagined. They watched themselves.” ~ D. H. Lawrence
  55. “A new poll showed that 66% of Americans think President Bush is doing a poor job handling the war in Iraq and the remaining 34% think that Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church.” ~ Tina Fey
  56. “If we descended from space aliens, that’s just as viable as Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, as far as I’m concerned.” ~ Jon Gries

  57. “In other words, science tells us that Adam and Eve are fictions. That Saint Paul or Uncle Tom Cobley and all thought otherwise is irrelevant. They were wrong.” ~ Michael Ruse
  58. “We’ve sort of agreed that the account of Adam and Eve is a story.” ~ Elie Wiesel
  59. “Adam’s first domestic pet after the expulsion from Paradise was the serpent.” ~ Franz Kafka
  60. “Lord, here am I, send me, I will redeem every son and daughter of Adam and Eve that lives on the earth, or that ever goes on the earth.” ~ Brigham Young

  61. “Another point important to recognize is that the creation was ‘mature’ from its birth. It did not have to grow or develop from simple beginnings. God formed it full-grown in every respect, including even Adam and Eve as mature individuals when they were first formed. The whole universe had an ‘appearance of age’ right from the start. It could not have been otherwise for true creation to have taken place. ‘Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them’ (Genesis 2:1).” ~ Henry M. Morris
  62. “The world has been tragic since the day Adam and Eve sinned in the garden. From that moment murder, mayhem and war entered the scene and we are still suffering the consequences of a man-driven, self-serving, short-sighted environment.” ~ Louie Giglio
  63. “I sometimes think Adam and Eve were Russians. They didn’t have a roof over their head, nothing to wear, but they had one apple between them and they thought that was Paradise.” ~ Ronald Reagan

  64. “Another striding instance is recorded by the very intelligent traveler regarding a representation of the fall of our first parents, sculptured in the magnificent temple of Ipsambul in Nubia. He says that a very exact representation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is to be seen in that cave and that the serpent climbing round the tree is especially delineated, and the whole subject of the tempting of our first parents most accurately exhibited.” ~ Godfrey Higgins
  65. “Without the Christian explanation of original sin, the seemingly silly story of Adam and Eve, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, there was no explanation of conflict. At all.” ~ Donald Miller

Adam and Eve are central to the belief that humanity is in essence a single family, with everyone descended from a single pair of original ancestors.
