Where did all the other peoples with which the chosen people fought come from?

Is there really a definitive Adam and Eve? I always assumed there'd be some fucked up hybrid homo sapiens to fuck something that's lower on the evolutionary scale until eventually getting the modern human. So either Adam or Eve had to be something less than homo sapiens

The division came after the Flood

>>296685
So there were other people on Earth when Adam and Eve were created?

Because Adam and Eve weren't Jews. The concept of Jews didn't exist at the time. The earliest "Jews" were Hebrews, who descend from Abraham, and plenty of other humans already existed at the time.

"Jews" didn't exist at the time, but yes, you could say that.

That's because Muslims claim that Islam is the original religion, that started with Adam and Eve, and that Judaism and Christianity are just bastardization of this original religion.

You get that implication in the Bible, yes. Consider Cain's actions post murdering Abel. He's simultaneously worried about being punished by other people for his crime (from what? the all of 2-5 other people on the planet?) and then runs off to build a city.

Jacob, later Israel, is the first Jew.

No. Adam and Eve fucked and multiplied and their descendants did the same until there were thousands of people, but then they all died in the flood except for Noe.

No there isn't.

Arabs and Jews are both Semetic peoples. Also I'm sure Jews are a lot more dark skinned back in ancients, before people like the Khazars and such converted to Judaism.

If God created Adam, and then God took one of Adam's ribs and made Eve, wouldn't they both be the same race?

If that's true, and everybody is descended from Adam and Eve, wouldn't that mean everybody should be one race (white, black, etc)?

Evolution is a means to you being the way you are. It is not a purpose. Name a purpose to existence other than to serve a higher power.

We can argue over which dictionary's got it right but the overwhelming majority of atheists don't think they know for certain that god doesn't exist. That sort of person is very rare. And Agnosticism isn't quite correct either since that posits that you can't know at all.

It's you who thinks that the universe was created just for humanity, and that it's ultimate purpose is for us to make moral judgements. A naturalist thinks humanity is here for no special purpose and the universe simply doesn't care about our behavior.

No it fucking doesn't. None of those things exist to do fucking anything. They exist because different organisms have evolved to fulfill unexploited niches in their habitats, allowing them to proliferate.

>Are you so concieted to believe the chain of existence stops at human being?
No, you're the one who is conceited enough to believe that we are at the top and the entirety of the earth is our inherent property.

Kek

Nope, the bible lists all of Adams descendants. Or was it just Noahs descendants? Either way everyone dies and only Noah survives the flood so all humans descend from Noah, not any black or asian or ethnofluid transracial adam and eves.
>>
>>296961
Alternate definitions for atheism also include lack of belief. We could have this debate all day but for future reference, when someone says they're an atheist it's a safe bet they mean "lack of belief".
>>
>>296990
>They exist because different organisms have evolved to fulfill unexploited niches in their habitats, allowing them to proliferate.
That's not the law of general nature. Only of life. The idea that life itself could evolve into existence seems nonsensical, since nature apart from life doesn't work that way.
>>
>>296997
>when someone says they're an atheist it's a safe bet they mean "lack of belief".
That's exactly what it used to mean, but then militant atheists and the "fedora" meme happened, and since then people have redefined "agnostic" to mean "atheist", and "atheist" to mean "militant atheist".
>>
>>296990
>they exist because they evolved
I will allow you to identify your own circular fallacy

It isn't. That's what I'm arguing, that the Bible implies otherwise, and that Adam and Eve are likely only the ultimate ancestors of the Hebrews, not humanity as a whole.

How do the young earth creationists reconcile he belief in adam and eve with the lack of genetic bottlenecks in the human population from the time period you're proposing

And how do you explain the presence of a genetic bottleneck from ~50,000 years ago, likely from the Toba eruption

>The Toba eruption has been linked to a genetic bottleneck in human evolution about 50,000 years ago,[31][32] which may have resulted from a severe reduction in the size of the total human population due to the effects of the eruption on the global climate.[33]

According to the genetic bottleneck theory, between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago, human populations sharply decreased to 3,000–10,000 surviving individuals.[34][35] It is supported by genetic evidence suggesting that today's humans are descended from a very small population of between 1,000 and 10,000 breeding pairs that existed about 70,000 years ago

>>
>>297046

The part where it says that Adam was the first or only human around when he had those descendants.

Which doesn't exist. Which is implied to be not the case several points over, from the differing accounts in Gen 1:27 as opposed to Gen chapter 2, in addition to the stuff I mentioned upthread about Cain's city.

Noah's 3 sons. Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Shem, the ancestor of Abraham and the Jews. Ham (who was cursed by Noah), ancestor of the Canaanites, and Japheth, the ancestor of most everyone else. At least that's my understanding.

The point is Adam is the ultimate ancestor of all of humankind, not just Jews or Hebrews.

But forget about Adam, focus on Noah, as according to the Bible we all descend from Noah and his sons, considering the rest of the population got wiped the fuck out by the flood.

Japheth is the progenitor of Europeans
Shem is the progenitor of Semites
Ham is the progenitor of Africans (Egypt is called the land of Ham, his son Cush is the ancestor of Kushites/blacks etc)

Then it gets further stratified down the line, like Abraham fathering Isaac (the ancestor of Israelites and Edomites) and Ishmael (the ancestor of Arabs) etc.

At no point did Jews, or Christians for that matter believe that only Hebrews descend from Adam.

Actually, the Bible does not say this either. The extent of the flood is always described as הָאָרֶץ "the land", the same way it talks about "the land of Egypt" or the "land of milk and honey."

The Jews were the original people. There's stories about how the other races came about, they were the results of other Jews that settled down in different parts of the world (for instance a Jew named Egypt is supposed to be the father of all Egyptians).

The Jews are the one's with the most direct and thus highest lineage. Yes, the Old Testament literally has the Jews as being the original and master race. It's hilarious when Christians try to be anti-Semitic when 50% of their book is Jewish propaganda.
