How Long Did Adam And Eve Live In The Garden Of Eden??

Something I've been thinking about.

Genesis 5:5: "The whole lifetime of Adam was nine hundred and thirty years; then he died."

Before Adam and Eve were exiled from the Garden Of Eden, they were immortal. So time didn't mean anything to them. Maybe they didn't bother to count the years or keep track of time at all.

Maybe they didn't start to pay attention to the passing of time until they got thrown out of the Garden and had to fend for themselves. So maybe the 930 years refers only to the period after they left the Garden.

Maybe (I say "Maybe" a lot - This is only speculation.) Adam and Eve had lived there for billions of years. They had seen the dinosaurs come and go. They watched Pangea break up and form continents. They were there when the first sea-dwelling creature heaved itself upon the shore and started to breathe air.

Is it possible??

1. If we didnt have diseases it is possible to live hundreds of years

Accidents are still a real showstopper though

2. Hebrew alphabet & numerals are the same symbol. In other words there is no separation.

Most ancient languages, this was common. Matter of fact, 1st two letters of the old testament were 'Aleph - Bet', or 'Alphabet'.

You get into Jewish mystical practice called the 'Kabbalah'. Best book I've ever read on this topic is 'The Cipher of Genesis' by Carlos Suares. The book starts w/ the old Testament as it is written in the Hebrew letter-number combination.



Westerners get the numbers & letters confused, 'Adam' is 'Aleph, Dalet Aleph Mem' = 54.

The Hebrew Alphabet was the 1st Alphabet given to both Adam & Eve.

5. No they were given the ability to speak.

They were probably the two smartest people ever lived.

And the tree is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil no knowledge.

4. Well they did live in the garden a long time before they sinned

How long? God opted not to tell us. But it wasn't millions or billions of years so that evolution could take place and the fossil record could be laid down.

Pangea broke up after the flood as is stated in Gods Word!

6. Impossible.

All evidence disagrees with you.
Real evidence, not ICR.

8. They didn't.

The Genesis story isn't literal, just a way to explain sin and a need for salvation.

12. And you know this how?????

Were you there to see it was just a story.

Why go through all the details of physical creation if one just wanted to talk about sin and salvation.

For a bunch of supposed illiterate goat herders, they sure are very very smart writers.

10. The problem with this is that if

Adam and Eve watched the dinosaurs “come and go,” what about the carnivores? We know for a fact that many of the dinosaurs ate meat.
