With my little article on the beginning of life done, I began thinking about what Adam had said right after Eve was made. Here is what Adam said.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
As I thought about that and how life first begins, I saw something I had not seen before (apparently I’m ripe for Biblical revelations right now). Without getting into the details, this verse seems to talk about the beginning of life in a women’s womb (fertilization of the egg), as well as the marriage between a man and a woman.
“But, how could it be that perfect man, with no mistakes or delays in his brain could know such knowledge?!” I’d say that question answered itself. Sometimes we are so surprised about the knowledge of ancient man that we occasionally dismiss it.
It seems that Adam, the perfect being, knew right away that we should have as many kids as God would allow without our intervention.
Kids aren’t cumbersome, I just wish more people knew that.
