ADAM AND EVE- NOT ADAM AND STEVE. REALLY?
Today on my way back from the veterinary after an appointment for our cat, I was behind a truck with a sticker in the back window proclaiming Adam and Eve – Not Adam and Steve.
That is self-centered ignorance on so many different levels, not the least of which is, that decisions people make in their personal life that don’t affect you are really none of your business; but also, Adam and Eve – Really?
If you want to go back to the original mother of the human race it would be more appropriate to name Lucy than Eve. Our original mother was more than likely a young female Australopithecus africanus walking the savanna of central Africa with a small harry bipedal baby suckling at her breast
– not a beautiful pale white naked female talking to a snake under an apple tree in a make believe garden.
Sometimes it is necessary for a whole generation of self-appointed, ignorant, holier than thou bigots to die out before humanity can advance.
