“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children;” (Genesis 3:16)
Typically this verse has been interpreted as God’s punishment on Eve through painful childbirth. Is it possible that God was still acting in humanity’s best interests?
Our interpretation is based on our impression of God. Is he a tyrant who brutally punishes slaves who displease him, or a loving, faithful, trustworthy father who patiently guides and disciplines his children through their free-will chosen experiences for their safety, character development, personal insight, maturation and ultimate empowerment?
Humans were given authority to make things happen. Our actions trigger irretrievable reactions. What we do really and truly reverberates through our universe and impacts our world – for good or bad. We are not action figures for God to pick up and reposition when we fall. For him to do so would take away our power, our autonomy, our ability to be free individuals and meaningful change agents.
We understand reality-based consequences in the physics dimension, but not so much in the spirit dimension. If we did, we would recognize God’s faithfulness, love, mercy and forgiveness toward the woman whose sin rocked the whole universe.
We should be amazed at the trust the Creator continues to put in humanity after the woman blew it.
The person responsible for dealing death is who God made responsible for renewing life.
“And the LORD God said unto the serpent…I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise [smash down on] thy head [therefore destroy you].” (Genesis 3:15)
When God calls his savior “the seed of the woman,” he is obviously leaving out the fatherhood. The meaning would have been perfectly clear to his audience.
Satan and both Adams would have understood that the woman would be a single parent.
After all, single parenting was the only known form of reproduction in the entire universe at this time. God had materialized himself as a host of spiritual sons of God and the first human, who was then cloned into Adam 2nd.
Adam and his partner were told to multiply before they ate the fruit, so they had the same asexual ability. This is how the hydra “accomplishes the feat of apparent immortality by reproducing through budding rather than mating.”
But both original humans had lost their connection to the Singularity source of omnipotent power. so how could they reproduce without losing themselves in the process?
Believe it or not, through a reproductive process that includes death,
The scientific explanation is explicitly stated in the ancient Book of Enoch, chapter 15.
“they…die. And for this reason I give men wives; so that they might sow seed in them, and so that children might be born by them, so that deeds might [continue to] be done on the Earth.”
We can deduce from applying scientific discoveries, that one aspect of death that occurred “in the day” that the woman ate the toxic fruit was a change in the immortality of the DNA. This occurred when the protective ends on the chromosomes carrying the DNA began degenerating. Without the telomere’s protection, duplication of DNA unravels, causing deterioration, aging and ultimately enough loss of function to result in death.
Apply what is known about human sexual reproduction – the gametes (sperm and eggs) are produced through a process that requires the elimination of most of the cells in the process. The sex-determining chromosomes were split between the man and the woman, with the woman getting the larger share of genes with 2 X-chromosomes and the man getting only 1 X and a much smaller Y.
Notice that the woman transmits more of her genes to the child than the male, through the larger X chromosome. Every individual must have an X chromosome, even males which are defined by one Y chromosome.
This is one meaning of “the seed of the woman.”
The female egg cell is much larger than the male sperm, contains the energy-producing mitochondria, and is the only gamete that survives and continues the process of reproducing offspring. All the sperm die after one of them delivers its payload – the other half of the chromosomes – to the egg.
This is another meaning of “the seed of the woman.”
The way the woman provided corrective action for causing death to come on all mankind is by the equal and opposite reaction of passing on life in her seed / egg cell.
“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.” (Genesis 3:20)
The most prominent roles of mitochondria are to produce the energy currency of the cell…and to regulate cellular metabolism…
Wow. How straightforward a solution is that?
While each gamete has half of the required chromosomes, two of the same gametes cannot merge to form a complete human. Obviously the sperm do not have the egg cell environment or mitochondria required for growth and development of the newly joined chromosomes. But neither can the chromosomes from a female be injected into a female egg cell to form a female. Due to a chemical imprint called methylation which is uniquely male or female there must be a male sperm and a female egg joined to procreate a new individual.
Faced with this scientific truth, we’re left with two options. Acknowledge a Creative Designer or stubbornly claim to be scientific by believing in Evolution by chance from chaos to design contrary to the known Laws of Physics. Which is basing belief on the scientific process?
If we accept that the complexity of biology demands acknowledgement of a Creative Designer, we find that the biblical report of his involvement in humanity is the only religious revelation that fits the scientific evidence.
“This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;” (Genesis 5:1)
When we attribute the same literary structure to the Bible as to other literature, we recognize that this can only be the first reference to what is elsewhere called the book of life.
“And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods…And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.” (Exodus 32:31-33″
“He that overcometh…I will not blot out his name out of the book of life,” (Revelation 3:5)
The significant of this book is that it contains the names of every human being carrying the life originally given by God to Adam, passed to Adam’s wife by cloning, and passed to every human being by a human mother in the her mitochondria. Whether or not it continues for eternity depends on the individual’s right(eons) relationship identifying with and connecting to the Giver of Life, or rejecting his evident power / authority and attempting to become self-empowered through false gods. This concept will be developed further in the post The Book of Life.
What follows is a biology lesson on the process of forming the Seed of the woman. Fit this into the process of Evolution if you can.
Chromosomes come in pairs. A single chromosome is refrred to as N, or ha-ploid / half. A full set of two chromosomes is referred to as 2N, or diploid.
The same species-specific complete 2N set of chromosomes is in every nucleus of every cell of the body. Just one cell is needed to reproduce into another cell like itself, or into a complete organism.
In mitosis, the full set of chromosomes are duplicated and passed to the reproduced cell, producing identical offspring. This occurs
constantly in the cells of healthy tissues like skin, muscles, liver, etc.
A different process – meiosis – does not simply reproduce the chromosomes into more of the same. It adds another phase of
- shuffling the genes across the corresponding chromosome pairs,
- then splitting the 2N sets of chromosomes into 1N, exactly half of the pairs of chromosomes for that species,
- packaged into gametes – sperm or egg,
- each one different from all the other cells produced at this time because the genes were shuffled across the chromosome pairs.
Think of it like shuffling a deck of cards. Each hand is different.
Then, since only half the required genes are provided, the other half must be provided by a second parent. The mother can only provide X chromosomes. The father provides either an X or a Y chromosome. The combination of XX is a female, the combination of XY is a male.
Now when you combine the gametes from two different people, you can see how unique that individual would be.
Through analysis of mitochondrial DNA obtained from females of various ethnic backgrounds, researchers have determined that all humans alive today descended from one female, commonly referred to as ‘Eve’,
So pure scientific evidence supports the biblical account of the mother of all humanity.
who lived approximately 7600 generations ago.”
Wilson felt uneasy about using the term “Eve” because it caused many to think that she was the only woman living at that time, much like what is written in Genesis of the Bible concerning Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden…the usual evolutionary time-scale for man did not allow such a short time as 200,000 years. Rather, it is believed that man has been around for a much longer period of time.
Note that the mathematical formula deriving even 200,000 years from 7600 generations assumes that each generation is separated by 25 years.
- This anthropological allocation is inconsistent with the other social sciences which assign only 10 years to each generation for study purposes.
- Furthermore, it is common knowledge that new generations are born every single day to different families
- Generations can even leapfrog over each other within the same family.
So this accounting system is patently rigged. This is clearly done to avoid matching the results of this study with the biblical account of creation.
Any person with some knowledge of how to conduct a scientific study should be able to recognize at this early point in the presentation that
- Perdue University starts with researcher bias,
- rejects out of hand any hard data from ancient Hebrew documents preserved for thousands of years,
- and inputs unprovable assumptions to remain consistent with its a priori denial of a Creator.
It is unprovable by science’s own standards, but is in fact simply one of many religious belief systems from which people seek self-empowerment.
Evolutionists have come to believe that Eve must have been one of many women of her time, in a genetic bottleneck.
The story of the mitochondrial Eve is not what paleoanthropologists wanted to hear.[So much for scientific objectivity.] They did believe that man came from Africa, but they believed it happened one million years ago.
So, there seems to be no way for all the data to presently fit together.
No way, as long as they are steadfastly reject the concept of a Singularity Creator.
