the first human genetic mutation


God plants the Garden of Eden and sets the man there, “to work it and watch over it,” permitting him to eat of all the trees in the garden except the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, ” for on the day you eat of it you shall surely die.”


Then God creates the animals, attempting to find a help-mate for the man; but none of the animals are satisfactory because Adam was lonely, and so God causes the man to sleep, and creates a woman from his rib. The man names her “Woman”.  Man and woman were naked, and were not ashamed.

God created Eve from Adam’s rib . – was this the first genetic mutation of a human?

The serpent tempts the woman to eat from the tree of knowledge, telling her that it will not lead to death; she succumbs, and gives the fruit to the man, who eats also, “and the eyes of the two of them were opened.” Aware now of their nakedness, they make coverings of fig leaves, and hide from the sight of God.

They shamed because they acceded to forbidden knowledge – was this a secondary effect of genetic mutation?


Eve had tempted Adam to eat of the fatal fruit and Adams punishment takes effect through the dependence on the sexual passion, in which the spirit’s inability to control flesh.


The sin – if humans will be like god, inspired by the temptation of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

The ¨Creation¨ is a privilege of god and if humans start to ¨create¨, they are attempting to be like god!
