Since our origins were in Africa, people don't realize that if Adam and Eve did exist that they were most likely black, amirite?

The reason biblical figures are depicted as white is because of artists in Europe. They used their skin color to represent the skin of people like Jesus, Mary, etc.

Sweet I'm like .00000000000001 % black.

This is dumb. The story is obviously made up, but if it were true, God could have made them whatever color he wanted them to be. Since they were the first humans, and everyone evolved from them, people in Africa would evolve to be black regardless. It literally does not matter at all where they originated or what color they were.

Actually, the story takes place between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, that's in the Middle East.

What if they were actually some color like green or blue or something? That'd be quite the twist in this story

Why does it even matter...?

Not ALL people originated from Africa? And people in Africa weren't necessarily first

It actually started in mesopotamia

@davidsplanteII It actually started in mesopotamia

That was the first advanced civilization, not where humans necessarily originated. Even so, Mesopotamia is the Middle East, so that's still not white.

I know they aren't white.... Well I feel stupid now

Everyone says this, but the bible doesn't...there's no reason to think that they weren't white.

Well actually, even if you're going by the Bible they'd be Arab, not white.

Well Christianity is an Abrahamic religion, meaning it stems from the Middle East. It would only make sense that Adam and Eve would be depicted as Arab since Arabs were the first to follow the religion, and the holy figures of the religions were depicted as being Middle Eastern as well.

Abrahamic does not mean that it comes from an Arab region, it means that they believe in Abraham as a forfather.
