How did Adam and Eve survive when kicked out of the Garden of Eden?

    It’s funny how a simple question like this is something that the dubs never even consider. My dad asked this question to a couple of witnesses and they wondered for a minute and said;

    “I never thought about it, I’ll have to ask the elders”

    The bible says that Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden and two cherubs guarded the entrance to prevent them from getting back into the garden,

    Jehovah told the couple that any effort to plant anything would result in thorns because the ground was cursed.

    Adam and Even had just a few days before they would start getting weak and sick as a result of not eating or drinking water

    If the couple was to survive, they had to make some sort of farming tools and needed seed to start planting. But how could they do this if nothing existed outside the garden. And if there did exist something like trees, the couple had no tools to cut the trees down and form tools for planting.

    And even if they were able to design, cut, and make some type of plow, or shovel, they would have to do it quickly before starvation started setting in and they got to weak.

    And the planting and harvesting cycle can take up months.

    And even if all these obstacles were overcome, it would still be in vain because the ground was cursed.

    In about 3 days both would start getting very sick. In a week both would have to lay in bed as a result of being too weak for lack of eating. In 21 days both would start dying of starvation or be dead because of starvation..

    Humans on average can only survive about 21 days without food, maybe longer if there is plenty of clean water.

    Watchtower illustrations in their magazines make it seem like Eve had a sewing machine to make a tarp to use as a makeshift roof. Also look at the containers of clay, the basket hanging on one of the poles, and the nice leopard clothing for her daughter, - How was Eve able to do that? And how did Adam carry the water to irrigate the crops immediately after he was kicked out of the Garden?

    The story doesn’t make sense when you consider the reality of life.There was never an Adam and Eve that was kicked out of a beautiful Garden into a barren wilderness without any food, water, tools and seeds, and able to survive at least till the first harvest.

    Plot holes in the Genesis account? Say it ain't so!

    Don't be silly! The dinosaurs helped them.

    Evidently they survived because they were closer to perfection. The perfect health that they enjoyed in the garden lasted long enough to overlap any ill effects that they otherwise would have experienced early on in their eviction.

    That would be the case if Adam was like a cave man with little or no intelligence and just plain dumb and stupid grabbing Eve by the hair and dragging her into a cave or something. But that was not the case they have found in the Aztec world.

    Aztecs used relatively primitive tools for Aztec farming and agriculture. They did not have advanced tools for the time such as plows. The most important tool for Aztec farming and agriculture was the classic wooden digging stick.The Aztecs did not have iron or bronze to make cool weapons. They used obsidian and chert. When the Spanish came, the Aztecs made an advancement to copper weapons. Aztec technology was so advanced, they even made drills out of reed and bones.The Aztecs knew in order to settle down successfully that they would need many engineers and builders and traders. They adapted to their environment. They built canoes so they could hunt and fish. They created medicines from the many plants they found in the area.

    I just use them as examples and Adam had to be more intelligent than these were.

    You make it sound like outside of the garden was a wast land barren a dusk bowl,God wouldn't banish them to die of starvation.Its not reasonable to think the only trees and plants on earth were just in the garden

    Gen 1 NWT
    Then God said: “Let the earth cause grass to sprout, seed-bearing plants and fruit trees according to their kinds, yielding fruit along with seed on the earth.” And it was so. 12 And the earth began to produce grass, seed-bearing plants+ and trees yielding fruit along with seed, according to their kinds

    Adam: 'Hey Eve, what's for supper?'

    Eve: 'Corn on the cob.'

    Adam: 'Again? Jesus Christ Eve...we've had corn on the cob for the last 1,914 meals'

    Eve: 'If it's good enough for the Aztec's, it's good enough for you.'

    Adam: 'I die a little every day eating this crap!'

    Alex - There was no Adam and Eve.

    Humans evolved from non-human ancestors over millions of years of unguided evolution.

    This statement if a fact beyond all sensible debate.

    Someone knew we were coming then,think about oxygen someone knew we would need

    air to live here.

    a colorless, odorless reactive gas, the chemical element of atomic number 8 and the life-supporting component of the air.About a fifth of the air is made up of oxygen, and almost all the rest is nitrogen. Oxygen comes from plant photosynthesis where carbon dioxide is absorbed and oxygen is emitted.

    Most of Earth's oxygen comes from tiny ocean plants – called phytoplankton – that live near the water's surface and drift with the currents.

    In space, no one can hear you scream. This is because there is no air in space – it is a vacuum. Sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum.

    We needed heat and light so someone created our star which is our sun ,
    200 billion suns are in the Milky Way galaxy alone. but ours just happned to be close enough to sustain life here but not too distance where we would freeze to death

    The sun is about 93 million miles away from Earth If ... If Earth were closer to the sun, however, the oceans would boil away. and if farther we would not be able to live on earth

    So with the amount of suns in the milky way this just so happened to be just where we needed it. Too many coincidences for me to accept your beliefs

    Alex - Your arguments are like a puddle that rejoices how the hole if the ground is the perfect shape for it to wallow in.

    Have you ever read about the history of oxygen levels and how it has influenced the evolution of life? Sean B Carroll has an excellent book on the topic. Did you know that the evolution of lignin played a vital role in the rise of oxygen in our atmosphere?

    How familiar are you with the scientific evidence for evolution?

    Would you be open-minded enough to discuss it?

    It does present a dilemma to the 21st century mind....apparently the verdure presented sufficient grazing. We are so far removed from foraging on the land it is difficult to imagine. And we have no way of knowing what plants grew outside Eden and what their nutritional value was.....we may never know the answer to this question.
