God formed the man from the dust of the ground.
(The name 'Adam' means 'ground').
Then He saw that it was good that it was not good that the man was alone - and in an act of spiritual surgery, the Lord pulled the female part of Adam out of him, and created a woman. Bone of his bone, and flesh of his flesh. Together they would become one: the best representation we have on the planet of who God is. God created them male and female. In His image, He created them. Gen. 1.27
How could a mindless process make a mind?
How could nature ‘think ahead’ to create perfectly opposite and complimentary sex organs in plants and animals?
If your brain is just the result of billions of cosmic ‘accidents’ how could you trust it for rational thought?
If the combined intelligence and technology of the human race can’t produce just one living cell (let alone a self-replicating blade of grass) from scratch, how could a non-intelligent process produce the intricacies and diversity of the interdependant infrastructure we see?
And how could matter itself ingeniously self-replicate? And what caused the natural and moral constants? And what is the basis for moral beliefs if there is no ultimate truth? All you would have left are opinions; one would be just as valid as the next.
The Life Force that created the galaxies, the heavens, the earth, the seas and all things in them; made you and wants an intimate relationship with you. He gave you His Son as a way to do just that.
PS. Adam only gave the woman a name after they left the garden. He called her 'Eve', as in 'evening'... because she would be the mother of all the living.... all of us who have been born into darkness.
