    How long do you think the Lord leaves Adam asleep before he is awakened and given Eve or Chava?

    good question------it is best to sleep thru Post-op pain. Removal of a rib is
    no picnic--------the poor victim would have quite a bit of pain on INSPIRATION
    (uhm----that means BREATHING IN----not revelation) -----and then----just what
    would he have to DO with Eve? even "that" would lead to pain at the operative
    site. Since the concept of a WEEK had already been instituted------my educated
    guess would be------surgery on Friday-------and discharge on the following Friday----
    the whole week in induced coma. THEN adam would be a good shape to celebrate
    his first FRIDAY NITE

    For one thing, I'm not so sure that the whole rib thing wasn't metaphorical, but if it were meant literally, then it would happen quickly, very quickly in a matter of moments and there would be no post op pain at all. It's not like God was operating with a scalpel and sutures and a bone saw! This is the guy who controls the laws of the universe! Adam awoke whole and complete, as if he never had or needed the rib in the first place. God is a magician to us, 10,000X farther above us than we'd be above a caveman.

    When I spent the three years researching all the names in the Bible (without having Internet) I questioned the whole rib issue. I think I posted somewhere in this forum about the rib but if not I will go into that in a comment later in this thread.

    God knows what he is doing while we do not.

    And it is a GOOD thing as once we get through that first week a rest is in order.

    Be sure that the "days" in Genesis' "week" were not the week we know. It might have been millions or billions of years long. The use of "days" and "nights" in the book of Genesis was mere literary license by the writer to convey difficult concepts in ordinary terms man could relate to.
