    Not sure, although I never really wondered about it. Ashley posted some AWESOME links though and now I am going to spend 30 minutes reading them LOL.

    Not sure. I don’t think there was just one first person though. Even if you look at it biblically, Adam then Eve, then Cain and Abel, where did Cain’s wife come from?

    Honestly, I’m not sure. I was taught “Adam” as a child, but now I really don’t know. I kind of think we evolved as a species rather than one man/woman placed here who then populated the planet, kwim?

    Now…I have to check out those links.

    I always believed it was Adam but I am at a crossroads in my faith and I’m not sure about much anymore.

    I believe in god/devine inspired evolution. I believe that the first person was a woman……not adam.

    Well we really have no way of knowing, human beings were around before written history. Christians believe that God created Adam and Eve as the first humans, some believe this happened about 6000 years ago. I believe the earth and humans are much older than this. There is evidence that humans have been on the earth much longer than 6000 years.

    Omo I and Omo II may be the oldest

    I was taught also that it was Adam. But as I got older I researched for my own answers and still have no definite answer. I believe humans have been around much longer than Adam and Eve.
    Not Me At All and Ashley posted some interesting links and I’m going to check them out in full.
    I think it’s great you are asking other people about what they think. You’re a smart cookie 🙂

    I’m going to say some Neanderthal but I think that we evolved as a group too, not as a lone person.

    I just asked my 8 year old…he says….space monkeys! haha He was just joking though. We believe in both evolution and God. So….There were primitive humans, and then God made Adam to give us a hand in evolution. Since the beginning I guess we have always needed His help!
    Very awesome question from a young man!!

    Great answer Ruby!

    I have no idea who the first person on earth was. I imagine they don’t look much at all like people look today 🙂

    Thanks everyone for all the great answers! I personally believe in evolution with the mother and fathers hand but I believe the mother was hear first but she’s a goddess so I don’t know if that counts as a person LOL my son told me he is thinking on this.

    But I believe we evolved the way the mother and father want us to. But in my heart I believe the first person was a woman why i don’t know.
