    The Creation Story is a myth / allegory. That doesn't mean it's useless, however. It's just not what actually happened. Personally, I believe in Intelligent Design.

    Homo naledi is just fake bones buried by satan to fool Zeus's children.

    I've grown tired of your unprovoked, childish trolling and am putting you on "ignore". Bye.

    There was a first human ... but he didn't look like us.

    On the other hand ... at some point there must have been a human who first looked like us.

    That's just the way things work.

    Have there been different species of humans? Was there an evolutionary tree wherein human species diverged and, eventually, some died out and another evolved into us? I think it's plausible, maybe probable.

    That's exactly what did happen. There was a time when Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens existed together. Between 100,000 and 40,000 years ago, they fought and had sex. We know this because humans carry certain sequences of Neanderthal DNA.

    .
    from the metaphysical, adam would be the first of our kind among those that existed at that time and somehow the same with eve - from their parents. they were the next level in the evolutionary progression dating all the way back to the initial life template.

    whatever the clay and breath story being a part of their evolution ...

    There are a number of possibilities. One might be that only one species chose to know both good and evil. Or, possibly, the Fall of Man did not occur until only one species survived. We should keep in mind that the Genesis story does not delve into the various species of mankind, but tells a story of a more recent history.
