In other words you have no idea what the author of the book meant by the dust of the ground. Correct?

Hmm, what is "dust of the ground"?

I see that you have been given a number of responses in the negative regarding the possibility of the story of Adam and Eve being true. I don't see where you've interacted with them. You now want to ask us how the Bible defines "dust of the Earth. Why don't you tell us how the Book of Mormon defines it. After all you are the believer in it. I would define "dust of the Earth" as fine dirt. It seems that this is an irrelevant issue in deciding whether it is possible for the story to be true.

I'm not sure what you mean by density of time...

Yes, I heard about it. Great stuff.
But how does it show that there is no way that biblical Adam and Eve could be possible.
As a believer in God of the Bible I want to understand

I have an idea. What I said makes sense. I don't know what argument you're trying to make.
Even if I had no idea, that doesn't make the story in Genesis any more accurate.
Not having an understanding of something doesn't automatically make it correct or incorrect.
Also, there are other people who answered your earlier questions really well. Better than I did. Don't ignore them.

What you believe is irrelevant.
For many thousands of years, religious nuts, such as you, have asserted all their religious BS is true, just as you do. They were all wrong, just as you are.

ALL the major Biblical Scholars in the world consider Genesis to be mythical.
Since you are profoundly ignorant, and uneducated, you would have no way of knowing that.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Alla,

Why don't you tell us the basis of your belief that the story of Adam and Eve is true. More importantly, how are you aware of this basis?
