Adam and Eve: Thank you. It’s a pleasure to be here.
Internet News: Wow. It is such a pleasure to have you here today; I hardly know where to begin. I just finished reading your biography and I must admit I had no idea the difficulty regarding what the two of you went through in coming to our planet. The early literature doesn’t begin to cover what happened 40,000 years ago. Why is that?
Adam: You have to remember that when we arrived on Earth, or Terran as we called it, there was no written language at the time. Your ancestors had no need for writing. They were doing something far more important, they were surviving. It was only with the advent of our children that writing became established on Earth, and it took thousands of years before it caught on. In that regards, it’s not hard to understand how the stories about us became exaggerated and embellished. Back then, the only way to pass on one’s history was by word-of-mouth, and most of this was accomplished through poems and songs that the tribes used to explain the world around them. It actually took a good 5000 years before writing took hold and that was due mainly to our children’s efforts. They were the ones who really established the written word on Earth.
Internet news: Yes, your children. That was a bit of a sticky mess in the beginning wasn’t it?
Eve: Yes, that was not one of our fonder moments. Still, things did work out, though it could’ve been so much better.
Internet news: Well, let’s get down to it then. You come to Terran or Earth. You’re given complete command of the planet. And the goal is to populate Earth with your species until you’ve reached a substantial number, at which point your species and our ancestors, the Neanderthals, are to be intermixed, thereby creating a new superhuman race.
Adam: Well, superhuman is a bit of an overstatement, but yes, that was the general idea, though the original plan was far more in depth. Aside from the physical changes we were to bring, our primary goal was to raise the human race to a new standard of understanding. We were sent to cultivate and enlighten you, and raise you from the quagmire of primitive survival to a level of civilization that you would never have achieved without such an infusion.
Internet News: So that’s why Jhira decided that a new evolutionary cycle for the human race was necessary?
Adam: Yes, you see your ancestors; the Neanderthals had reached the end of their evolutionary ladder. They had survived for over 200,000 years on Earth, and had done so exceedingly well, but they lacked the ability to communicate amongst other things. And in order to progress fully as a species you need the ability to communicate readily. Therefore, it was decided that a boost was needed—something that would catapult your species to a new level.
Internet news: So what happened?
Eve: It’s a very long story, but essentially we fell short. We got caught up in our own pomposity, and became entangled in a web of lies and deceit. Though I would like to blame Mikatta or the devil as you call him, for our misgivings or shortcomings, it was our own naivety and foolishness that really led us down the path of failure. We violated the plan that had been laid out for us and consequently lost everything we were trying to build. Since then, we’ve had a lot of time to reflect and we fully accept the blame for what happened.
Internet news: I’d like you to hold that thought for just a minute. And before we continue any further I’d like to give our readers a little more background information on the two of you so they can fully appreciate what happened 40,000 years ago. Can you tell us a little about your home planet, Mirra?
Adam: Surely. It’s a large planet, slightly larger in circumference than Earth, though the gravity is about the same. It’s far older and much more settled climate wise.
Eve: And we don’t have a moon like your planet, but we’re surrounded by far more stars.
Internet News: But your planet’s technologically, it’s quite superior to that of Earth’s.
Adam: Yes, far more so—though you have been making substantial strides in the last hundred years.
Internet News: Do you think that the technological difference between our two planets contributed to your situation here on Earth? Perhaps even your failure?
Eve: Undoubtedly. I don’t think either Adam or I fully realized how much we missed Mirra or our previous lives there until we were alone together on Earth. Even we were fooled. I don’t think it was the distance between our worlds necessarily, but the isolation that was the worst thing. We never had a chance to make contact with anyone from our previous lives. At times it was like everyone we knew had died and we were the only ones left. And even though we made many new friends on Terran and there were many rewards, it always felt like we were missing something.
Adam: I would have to agree. Perhaps if we had not been so educated, or used to things that many of you take for granted it would’ve been different. I understand, of course, why things had to be the way they were. The Terran project was an experiment that called for the strictest standards and that meant we had to be alone on your planet. It was the only way.
Internet News: Aside from the default, what was your biggest mistake on Terran?
Adam: Wow, there were quite a few. Underestimating Mikatta, that was a big one for me. I knew at the time that we had to be wary of him, but I unprepared for the level of viciousness he cast upon us and his deceit was immeasurable. I think he had a better grasp of the time it would take to put his plans into motion. Both Eve and I were caught up in the daily lives of everyone in Eden. Our days and nights were kept busy supervising the tribes and formulating our plans to make Earth a better place. Mikatta on the other hand, had only one plan in mind and that was to bring us down.
Internet news: Eve?
Eve: For me it was the loss of Kane and Able. As parents, it’s hard to reconcile yourself with the loss of your children. Again, there are no excuses. We could’ve done better job. Internet News: If you could change anything what would it be?
Adam: Pretty much everything. I mean, let’s face it. The world, as you know it, is in the mess it’s in because of us. Had we not defaulted your evolutionary level would be far superior today than what it is.
Eve: I think Adam is being far too hard on himself. I think he still feels that because of his betrayal to the covenant of Jhira that the blame for our default rests squarely on his shoulders. I keep telling him, that’s not the case. We’re human and we made mistakes, and though we’d like to change things, it’s never going to happen. We all have to live with the decisions we make.
Internet News: What would you consider to be your biggest success with the Terran project?
Eve: You! I mean you as a people. You’re here, you’re growing and you’re surviving. That in itself speaks volumes.
Adam: Yes, I would have to agree with Eve. As a species you are struggling, but you’ve made it 40,000 years. I suppose we are most pleased by that.
Internet News: In that respect how do you see our planet today? What are your concerns? What gives you hope?
Adam: I’m most concerned with your lack of compassion for one another. The most disconcerting signs is the violence I see. I keep hoping that the light will go on, and that one day you’ll realize the only way for your species to really succeed is by banding together. The Neanderthals understood that and that’s why they survived for 200,000 years. But somehow you, the Cro-Magnon people, have pushed that characteristic aside. Perhaps it’s because so little of our genetics was infused into you—it’s hard to say.
You know, there are billions of life forms out there in space, and that’s just in your corner of the universe. If you would just accept that it’s the differences in each and every one of you that makes you unique. You could be so much further down the road.
Eve: I’m most saddened by the treatment of woman on Earth. I mean, how can you think that you’re going to survive and grow when you suppress and subjugate half your population. It’s foolish. It’s like building a house with no roof and wondering why you get wet when it rains.
Internet News: Tell us about the Garden.
Eve: It was a magnificent place. I don’t think I can begin to describe just what a gorgeous place it was. The weather was temperate, the waters surrounding the Peninsula a deep blue, and oh, so clear. There was no pollution, and the seas were filled with fish. In fact, there was life everywhere surrounding the Peninsula. Of all the places that I wish I could re-create it would be the Garden Peninsula of Eden.
Adam: Yes, Eve is correct about that. If there was anything right about our arrival on Earth, it was the Garden of Eden. Of all places I wish to revisit, it would be there.
Internet News: Can you give us a glimpse of our future? Can we look forward to a new stage anytime soon in our physical evolution?
Adam: No. Any glimpse into your future would be unearned knowledge. And as far as any changes in your evolution, and I assume you mean from an outside source, I am not privy to that. However, the Neanderthal race had to wait 200,000 years before any infusion was conducted and you are nowhere close to that time frame. Also, you must realize that you are still evolving even as we speak. Let’s see what happens over the next 100,000 years before bringing in outside help. You might be surprised by what occurs naturally.
Internet News: What can you tell us about Jhira?
Eve: Jhira is the source of this universe. Of course, that is the name we have given him. Your planet and the different cultures and religions that reside here have different names for Jhira. Still, he is the designer of all.
Internet News: And he’s been here. I mean on Earth.
Adam: Oh yes. It was part of his final bestowal. He came and walked among you. It was a remarkable event.
Internet News: And what about Mikatta? Where is he now?
Adam: I have no idea. I do know that when Jhira left your planet he took Mikatta with him. Jhira decided that the people on Earth needed a clean slate upon which to build.
Internet News: I bet he was unhappy about that.
Adam: So, I’ve heard.
Internet News: And you—what are you doing now?
Eve: Adam and I have been consigned to the Nebelon Corp. We are in charge of overseeing the implantation of new Planetary Progressers for evolving worlds in the Kolan quadrant.
Internet News: So in a way you’ve been given another chance.
Eve: Yes, we have. It seems our experience and our knowledge is being put to good use. I mean after all, we actually lived the experience and that is a gift we can impart to the couples being selected for future infusions.
Internet news: And your children, how do they feel about all of this?
Adam: Over the course of the last 40,000 years we’ve had a chance to reestablish our bond with all our children. All of them have moved on and taken responsibility for their own lives. That’s what’s so great about the universe. It’s expanding continuously and there’s something for everyone.
Internet News: Lastly, how do you feel about your portrayal in human history?
Eve: Well, we hope this new biography will clear up a few things. I mean the whole story about me being formed from Adam’s rib, running around naked in the garden and frolicking with the animals—it’s a little silly. I do understand how it all came about, but really, it’s time to rethink the story.
Adam: Yes, I would have to agree with Eve. One of the major reasons our race was selected to be joined with yours was for the gift of intellectual prowess. Our purpose was to give you, as a people, the ability to think for yourselves, to make up your own mind, and to think outside the box as you call it. So please, take some time and read our biography and see for yourself if it doesn’t make more sense.
Internet News: Adam, Eve, I would like to thank you for a wonderful interview. Meeting you has been a delight and far more than I could’ve ever have imagined, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
And for our readers, I do hope you will take the time to pick up a copy of THE GARDEN, The Unauthorized Biography of Adam and Eve, available now at Amazon.com .You won’t be disappointed.
The Garden: The Unauthorized Biography of Adam and Eve
Amazon.com: Kindle Edition
Amazon.com: Kindle Edition
After being chosen as the new Planetary Progressors for Terran, an earth-like world reeling from the insurgency of the Tro^axk rebellion, Adam and Eve have no idea what to expect in their new vocation. But with three years of intense training under their belt they are sent across the universe to take command of a planet that has grown stagnate in time. Awakening naked in a pyramid temple upon a garden peninsula called Eden, Adam and Eve begin their mission: A mission destined to transform Terran from the backwards cultural cesspool it has become and to prepare its inhabitants for the next evolutionary epoch. The only obstacle, Mikatta, the planet’s previous ruler and the tribespeople he holds under his spell.
Nearly every religion and society in the world today begins with the story of Adam and Eve. And yet, this most basic story is couched in mysticism, myth, and vague detail. Did such a couple really exist? Were they the first man and woman on our planet, or is there more to the story?
For two hundred thousand years the Neanderthal race ruled Earth, then mysteriously, 40,000 years ago they disappeared forever leaving behind a new race of people — the Cro-Magnon. Why? What happened back then that changed our history forever?
The Garden of Eden — a perfect home built and designed for two people until the serpent arrived. Who was the serpent? And what was he doing there in the first place? Is there a chance that the serpent is actually a reference to some hidden sexual transgression?
Imagine traveling billions of light years across space to settle an unknown world populated by primitive barbarians. Imagine being alone, just you and your spouse, the two of you in charge of an entire world with only your faith and your mission to guide you — and, of course, the devil waiting for that fatal mistake. Could you have done things better?
