    This circumcision thing is nuts. Genesis chapter 17 God confirms his covenant with Abraham

    saying that He will give Abraham and his people an amazing land if they do one thing.

    Yep, cut off the tip of their wewe. In fact if you don't you're to be thrown out of town.

    What the hell...

    I think it pretty obvious that Adam was not circumcised. Why would he be? There is nothing inherently perfect or righteous about circumcision in and of itself. You have to remember that circumcision was only the mark of a special covenant that God made with Abraham and his offspring - long after the time of Adam. Why would Adam have to be circumcised since he was not a descendant of Abraham and not part of the covenant? I see no logical or scriptural basis for thinking Adam was circumcised.

    It was just a question of time. Adam was in cahoots with the talking snake, and as we know, snakes shed their skin too.

    Adam was in cahoots with the talking snake

    prologos ....

    Would make for an interesting episode of the X-Files on the conspiracy issue between Adam and the Snake.
