Eve by GENZOMAN Eve by GENZOMAN
Eve (Hebrew: חַוָּה, chavvah; Arabic: حواء‎, Hawwa; Ge'ez: ሕይዋን Hiywan; "living one" or "source of life", from Hebrew ḥaww‚, "living", "life", from ḥāy‚, "to live"; ultimately from the Semitic root ḥyw) was, according to the Book of Genesis, the first woman created by God, and an important figure in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Her husband was Adam, from whose rib God created her to be his companion. She succumbs to the serpent's temptation via the suggestion that to eat the forbidden fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, would improve on the way God had made her, and that she would not die, and she, believing the lie of the Serpent rather than the earlier instruction from God, shares the fruit with Adam. As a result, the first humans are expelled from the Garden of Eden and are cursed.

That's actually why God gave man authority over the woman. It's because Eve led him astray. Even today we see women in positions of power using their wiles to lead man astray.

again, i love your take on myths and legends. AND I'm glad you had the BALLS to include Western biblical figures.  I noticed that the piece and several other of the artist's works that depict biblical figures have been criticized for being included in the Myths and Legends section and I'm glad. It opens up dialogue and you get to see the "truth" in people. Everybody's idea of the truth is someone else's story. one of the best "Eve"s I've ever seen. thanks

There is something I never really understood about the story of Adam and Eve, and Christianity for that matter.

Eve was born from Adam's rib, right? Which would technically make Eve his daughter, I guess. So, when they started to populate Earth after they got their asses tossed out of the Garden of Paradise for eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge (apparently knowledge is evil and dangerous, don't go to school kids). They would be committing incest, right? So, according to scriptures; all people born on Earth are born through the acts of incest, right? Which brings me to what I don't understand; why do Christians today view incest as "wrong"? I mean, if a Christian have intercourse with anyone; they would as a matter of fact have sex with a relative.

I've been told that God was okay with incest for a time (to populate the world, I guess), but apparently God changed his mind later on and then started to condemning the act. But here it gets really strange! Because it doesn't matter how far back it goes because the moment you have had the same relative, like say, a common/shared ancestor like a great-great-great-...-grandfather over two thousands ago; you're still part of the same family tree.

So even if someone is (pardon my Danish) fucking someone else; then they would still be fucking a family member, right? So... you Christians are all sinful and dirty family fuckers, right?

Well, in technical terms, Eve is more like a clone since she was from Adam's rib, but I do see where you're going at. In fact, because the two lived for so long from eating from the tree of life, they may have had multiple children during their time before being banished from Eden. This may explain how Cain found a wife, who may have been his older or younger sister or his niece. So yeah, there was incest, and it also caused deformities and people were born different. That was until Exodus, or maybe it was mentioned in Deuteronomy or Numbers or Leviticus, that God said "Okay. Now that there is so many of you, your bloodline is completely different. So no more marrying your siblings, cousins, or anyone who is in your family." That's because the population was so high after the flood, the bloodline between people became very thin and is only strong in family members. So God was like "No more incest. Marry the people who's bloodline is completely different from yours and is not of your family." And that is when incest became a sin. It is also mentioned that some of the angels in heaven actually had sex with the women and the women gave birth to the Nephilim. That is, however, still debatable because in scripture it said that the "sons of God" saw the " daughters of man" very beautiful and they came down and slept with them. The term "sons of God" is still debatable. It was translated into two versions. One being that they were angels from heaven and the other being descendants of Seth. So in a way, there really wasn't much incest, but there was incest around. When the Earth became filled with many people and all of them were from different bloodlines because the one bloodline multiplied into very different bloodlines, that incest became a sin. People were no longer allowed to marry there siblings and cousins, and may explain why polygamy became a sin. There was no need for incest. That is why it's a sin.

I'm not sure if I can call Eve a clone of Adam. Even though God formed her out of Adam's rib, he may have altered her DNA to make her different from Adam. God made Eve to be Adam's wife so that he wouldn't feel alone. That is why he formed Eve out of Adam's rib. Not sure if they are related or completely different from each other. I don't know. The way God works is way beyond science and logic. That is why scientist and atheist are against Him because the way God works is scientifically impossible. That's why they try to debunk His existence when really He can neither be proven nor disproven. But yeah.

Also, I believe in the whole "sons of God" angels coming down from heaven thing because it sounds way cooler than the sons of God being the the descendants of Seth. That one part is what inspired most of my characters. I mean mostly all of my characters are angel descendant. Only a few are normal people and there are very little super powered warriors. But mostly all of them are "Nephilim".

fiskefyren : Actually, the first biblical accounts tells us that Adam and Eve were created at the same time, there was no rib involved. Which doesn't make them blood relatives.
Later versions used the rib story to justify the teachings about women being inferior to men, so it' all a matter of point of view.

And incest happens - per definition - between close family members, so, going from your theory, a relationship between distant cousins wouldn't be as such (just look at royal family trees in Europe !)

anyway, great piece of art and great depiction of a biblical character !

You do know there are many different versions of the Bible, right? How do you know if the one you're talking about is just "another version" of the Bible? The vast majority of Christians believe that Eve is born from Adam's rib, and that is what I'll go from. I can't do the 1000 of different versions of the Bible... I've just have to stick with the most videly beliefs and then sink them.

uhm... u do know incest in the royal family was only because they believed that was the only way to keep the bloodline pure, right? it didn't really have anything to do with incest persay, it was only because everyone else wasn't good enough / pure enough / clean enough, to fuck a royal pussy.

Meh, it could be taken many ways. I'll tell you how I take it. Eve was created from Adam's rib, making her not his daughter, but a female clone. Taken that way, the bible supports cloning. But point is, you can use the bible to support any point, for the most part.

1. ... so... because he didn't make her from his seed then she is not his daughter? Even though they have the exact same genes (even more so than one would from seed being only half of the supported genetics, you probably don't understand because you have no fucking clue as to how biology work)... your perspective is really fucked up XD cloning would just make it selfcest then *epic double facepalm* you Christians really do have your heads full of shit <3

2. Quote exact verse from the Bible that supports cloning.

3. If you make up bullshit? Yes (kinda like you just did).

I did have biology but we never had anything regarding the origin of life. We all had all sort of stuff about the population of lacks, how the body works, the right meal etc. but we mostly focused on bacteria, like adaptation (which proved to me that evolution is a fact). 

Honestly, I never cared too much about the origin of life. But yes, all humans are related. But in my defence i did say "not sure if correct", so i never said any of that was true.

Can't believe I forgot to reply... my bad. Anyway, I like how you try to excuse the inbreeding of Christianity by saying everyone does incest. Real smooth (not really). But you do then agree that Christians are just one big pile of inbreeding? That would sure explain why they're so stupid. Here I would like to refer to the fact that averagely Christians have a far lower IQ scores than that of Atheists and Agnostics.

PS. I really enjoy the fact that all Christians can do is finger-pointing that take somehow makes Christians good? How about turning the other cheek like Jesus told you to? I've never seen a Christian do that. Fucking hypocrites, all of you!

Don't blame me! Its religion/mythology's fault that the serpent is a phallic metaphor! That and she's looking at it suspectly, and one interpretation of the story is one big sex metaphor
