      Hi Moseleal,

      Yes I think they would have to believe that Eve had lots of babies, and many of them are documented in the bible! God said, “Be fruitful and multiply”, so they were pretty much commanded to have lots of children.

      This would mean that we are all related, but it is a very distant relation. We are all the same species, however different we look from the outside, we are all one big human family, and I think we should learn to act a bit more like that some of the time!

      It sure would. There are so many different beliefs sometimes it’s hard to keep track, moseleal01.

      I believe in the theory of evolution because I’ve seen with my own eyes the fossil records, dating back millions and millions of years and the sorts of animals we could have evolved from. I’m a fossil fan, I’ve got loads of them dotted around my house 🙂

      People who believe in the bible believe that we are all related and that the human race started off very slowly. It had to because as you said, Eve physically couldn’t do this 🙂
