Talk:Adam

also referred to as "the man" Huh? Does this mean that the literal translation could be "the man"? If so, it should be stated more clearly. PrometheusX303 19:35, 11 February 2006 (GMT)

The word "adam" is a word meaning man and it is also a name. Different bible versions translate it differently. The King James version translates it more often as "Adam" (following the Septuagint) whereas the WEB version, for example, uses "the man" more often. --Oelphick 11:48, 18 December 2006 (EST)

Adam & Eve Parallels?

  • - "Adam and Eve"


  • - Adam (אדם) (earthing man)
  • - Eve/Chawwah (חַוָּה‎) (feminine: living one)


  • - Asia, East:



  • - Asia, Middle East:



  • - Sumerian origin to the account of the garden of Eden? or a Hebraic origin to the Sumerian story:
  • - Wikipedia states, under Eve (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eve): "Some, for instance Samuel Noah Kramer, hold that the origin of this motif is the Sumerian myth in which the goddess Ninhursag created a beautiful garden full of lush vegetation and fruit trees, called Edinu, in Dilmun, the Sumerian earthly Paradise, a place which the Sumerians believed to exist to the east of their own land, beyond the sea.
  • - >> Ninhursag charged Enki, her lover and husband, with controlling the wild animals and tending the garden, but Enki became curious about the garden and his assistant, Adapa, selected seven plants (8 in some version) and offered them to Enki, who ate them. (In other versions of the story[citation needed] he seduced in turn seven generations of the offspring of his divine marriage with Ninhursag). This enraged Ninhursag, and she caused Enki to fall ill. Enki felt pain in his rib, which is a pun in Sumerian, as the word "ti" means both "rib" and "life".
  • - >> The other gods persuaded Ninhursag to relent. Ninhursag then created a new goddess (7 or 8 to heal his 7 or 8 ailing organs including his rib) named Ninti, (a name made up of "Nin", or "lady", plus "ti", and which can be translated as both Lady of Living and Lady of the Rib), to cure Enki. Neither Ninhursag nor Ninti are exact parallels of Eve, since both differ from the character. However, given that the pun with rib is present only in Sumerian, linguistic criticism places the Sumerian account as the more ancient and therefore, a possible narrative influence on the Judeo-Christian story of creation"


  • - However in contrast: one can take the Sumerian myth of "Adapa" in "the Garden of Edinu" and see it having Hebraic origin.
  • - As the phrases Adam and Eden are Hebrew. They are Semitic not Sumerian in origin!
  • - "Adhama:" Earthling man (אדם); ground (אדםה), root meaning “red”. - (Genesis 1:26; 2:7) (See: "mother earth," Gaia, Prithvi Mata, etc below).
  • - Eden (עֵדֶן) ('Eden: Pleasure/delight, lush. See Hebrew root 'dn) - (Genesis 2:8, 9, 16; 1:27-31)
  • - Now Given that these specific puns with "Adam" and "Eden" are present only in Hebrew, arguably could not the linguistic criticism place the Hebraic account as the older origin/influence on the Sumerian story of creation?
