As we look upon the earth after the crust had cooled, we notice no mountains. Volcanoes yes, plenty of those, and rolling hills in abundance. We see numerous large bodies of water that could be designated Seas and large lakes.
With all the proper conditions in place, terraforming could begin.
According to the Bible, there went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground. A garden was planted where man was introduced as its caretaker.
Outside of the garden, the planet was seeded by meteors containing biologics that were released as the ice protecting them melted.
Over time and with the assistance of guided genetic evolution, complex life forms were introduced.
Because the earth was rotating at a higher rate, centrifugal force would separate airborne water. Once the mists or vapors achieved a certain elevation, the excess would be siphoned of and become ice orbiting the planet, similar to the conditions incident to Saturn.
Carbon Dioxide levels were at an all time high facilitating the rapid growth of plant life necessary to metabolize inorganic materials to feed the developing biologics.
With the cycles of birth and death surrounding the process of guided evolution, how can we explain the alleged condition where Adam and Eve could not age?
If we recall, God planted two special trees in the garden. One, the tree of Life. the other, the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil.
“…Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 2: 16, 17
Up to now, the bodies of Adam and Eve were missing one thing mortals have in common: Mitochondria DNA.
Mitochondria DNA is responsible for, among other things, regulating cell death in the body. The older we get, the faster our deterioration. Without it, cells don’t die.
Keep in mind, the tree of Life had the ability to neutralize Mitochondrial DNA as evidenced in Genesis 3: 22 : “And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of Life, and eat, and live for ever:”
So the Man and Woman were expelled from the garden and the tree of Life guarded to prevent their eating of it to cure their “Mortal” condition.
One of the effects of Mortality was reproductive abilities being triggered…they could now have children.
In the next installment, we will discuss the relative position the earth had, then as opposed to now, to the sun.
I hope you are enjoying this little series.
