    There are days that I drop to the ground and kiss the earth in gratitude that I was born a woman.

    At least women didn't have anything to do with writing the Bibble. And women don't come up with this nonsense. Yay for women! Thank gawd we weren't allowed to write Bibble drivel - how embarrassing.

    God Made Eve From Adam’s Penis, Not His Rib, Academic Claims

    It’s certainly a shake-up for the book of Genesis - but a Biblical scholar has argued that Eve was made from Adam’s penis, not his rib.
    Biblical scholar Professor Ziony Zevit suggests that Eve was made from Adam’s ‘baculum’ or penis bone - and that’s why Man doesn’t have one.
    Professor Zevit, of the American Jewish University in Maryland said the Hebrew word ‘tsela’, doesn’t actually translate as 'rib’ and instead 'refers to limbs sticking out sideways from an upright human body.’
    Hence Eve’s surprising origins from below Adam’s belt.
    The word ‘tzela’ or ‘tsela’ is used in several different senses in the Old Testament - and Professor Zevit claims that this has confused translators.
    He says that it refers to any protruding part of the anatomy, including feet, arms and penis.
    Zevit says, ‘'Of these appendages, the only one lacking a bone is the penis.’
    Other Biblical scholars are less convinced, with some pointing out that the word ‘tzela’ means rib in post-Biblical Hebrew.

    Anyone who wants to make sense of the bible, is better off living their life by the guidelines found in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
    How stupid can you get.

    Is THAT why we call it a "boner"?

    NN: Is THAT why we call it a "boner"?

    Probably. And that is how women are evaluated - on their ability to put the bone back inside the penis.

    Now all those pictures of Adam have to be re-made. He should have a penis that sticks out all the time. How convenient would that be? God must have been drunk...

    Adam: "sorry...I didn't mean to hit you with this...it is always in the way. And...how am I supposed to make clothes to cover this thing sticking out? And, you know, I wouldn't mind sleeping on my stomach once in a while."

    God: "Well, let's fix that. Here...I will take that bone away from you. Sorry about that...I didn't know what I was thinking. Eh...might as well make something else with it...let's see what I can do."

    God takes another sip....

    It would make more sense that way. It would explain why 2 perfect nudists in a magic garden for an untold amount of time never got around to producing PERFECT offspring. It's almost as if they were destined to ensure "sin" and "imperfection" would become inherited traits for the entire human species. I could see yahweh being that evil.

    There was an article about this a couple of months ago in BAR (Biblical Archaeology Review).

    The story of Adam and the rib is a take off of a story originaly from Sumeria where a God Enki, the same God that saved man from the flood along with a female goddess take a rib and make man from it. Almost every story in Genesis is a rip off from older Sumerian writings.

    Whatever was used, whoever cloned "eve", they the did a better job on the enhancement of the male/female boobs versus the "p/c" protruding sensitive area.
