In the Native American version, the woman came and made everything herself. In the Native American version of Earth, there were no rules for what to do and what not to do. In the Christian version, they could do anything available except eat the fruit on the tree. Since Eve ate the fruit she told told Adam to eat the fruit and so he did too. Because of this, God banished both of them from the garden of Eden.
It is interesting to note that Adam and Eve are mentioned in all the Judaeo religions including Islam. In the Qur’an Adam is regarded as a prophet (a person spoken to by God). Eve is mentioned ad Hawwa, his wife. In this version when Adam came to life, God sent a number of angels to fetch clay from the earth to form him and they took the clay from a variety of sources to signify the variety in human beings. Their version of Satan is Iblis who refuses to bow down to Adam when God orders the angels to do so and is banished from heaven

He created man from dust and named him Adam, but Adam was lonely; so God took from Adam a rib. With Adam’s rib God created a woman and called her Eve. Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden to live in harmony with God. The garden was a perfect utopia for Adam and Eve.
In Marilynne Robinson’s Lila, the character Lila, experiences a connection with the book of the prophet Ezekiel. Throughout Marilynne Robinson’s Lila, the character Lila, has trouble understanding why things happen the way they do. On pages 124-125 of Marilynne Robinson’s Lila, an old man asks Lila “Why Ezekiel? That’s a pretty sad book, I think. I mean there’s a lot of sadness in it. It’s a difficult place to begin.” The character Lila, says “It’s interesting. It talks about why things happen”. Throughout the book of Lila, Lila questions herself and why things happen to her in the way that they do. This becomes a primary reason why she feels such a strong connection towards the book of the prophet Ezekiel. In The Book of Ezekiel Question by Question by Corrine L. Carvalho, on page one in the introduction it states “The book is difficult and disturbing.”
1. Lillith in Dawn was picked as the human to lead the other humans that would be reintroduced in order for the planet to hold life again. A strange looking race called the Oankali, want to interbreed with the humans and they want to call it genetic engineering. The humans
Once in the camp, she meets Rivkah whose number is J18202. Rivkah, who tells her the camp rules, one you must learn to read numbers, two you must never go near the door to the Lilith’s Cave. There are many other rules, but those are the two mentions in the book. She also tells them about the middin (dump) and the people who organize (can get things for you like a sweater or medicine). She tells them to survive the choosing they must not be notice and explains how with the rules.
Yet in "Adam and Eve" God is in the process of putting the Earth in its full form. God creates the land, the seas, and everything included in the land and seas like vegetation and animal life. After all of this, God first creates Adam: God "formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being" (3). He then creates Eve: "he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man" (4).
Nikanj trends Lilith to be able to open and do what Oankali did with her help her people understand what happen and what is going to happen. The Oankali kind told her that they will take all of them back to earth and her group is like the guinea pig. The issue of race also show up when Oankali tells her that his kind can eat human food, but she cannot eat there’s. The Oankali’s showed Lilith how to live on her on. Nikanj tells her all this stuff that it will do that at the end it does not keep. The issue of race show up at the end too when Nikanj tells her that she is pregnant with Joseph’s child who is another human. She says that the child will not be human it will be a monster and that it is wrong for her to have the child. She in the last chapter faces the fact that all the other humans are scared of her and when she goes on a walk all of the other humans go to earth and she is laved on the training floor. When she gets back to the fire that is when she sees’s Nikanj. He tells he that she can leave when the other humans leave and get awakened. She did not no how to fell about this. But how would you feel if you could not be with your own kind for a long time, even after she was told that she could be. The book really makes you think about if we do destroy are world what will happen to use. There most likely will not we another race to save as from extension. With all the war that we have we don’t look at what it is doing to
In my story about Lilith, I chose to include the immediate fights between Adam and Lilith in the Garden of Eden. This showed that Lilith was not a bad person; she just believed that she was created in the exact same way as Adam and did not want to be
The book of Genesis is about the beginnings of creation and life on earth. It begins with “nothingness” and in the first seven days following God creates the heavens and the earth, light and darkness, the seas, plant life, then came the sun and the moon, the fowls and the creatures who roam the lands, followed by humankind to finish it all off. Comparing the creation aspects of Genesis to Theogony, we see that the earth was again created out of “nothingness” known as Chaos. Chaos, instead of creating everything on earth, created several other godly beings to create the earth as it is today. Therefore, it can be deduced that the stories of Genesis we derived from the stories of the gods and goddesses of Theogony. Another similarity the stories possess is in the identity and condemnation of women as evil. In Theogony women were created to be an evil placed upon the earth to cause suffering for men because Iapetos, a mischievous god, stole fire from Zeus and presented it to man. In retaliation, Zeus had his lame smith mold the shape of a “modest

Book VIII of John Milton's Paradise Lost As Book VIII of John Milton’s Paradise Lost begins, the “new-waked” human Adam ponders the nature of the universe and the motion of the stars (ll. 4-38). When Adam has finished his speech, Milton takes the opportunity to describe Eve, who is listening nearby. We find Eve reclining in the Garden, but with grace, not laziness: “she sat retired in sight,/With lowliness majestic from her seat” (41-42). This “lowliness majestic” is the central phrase to understanding Eve’s character—she is both humble and glorious. Everything that beholds her is captivated by her “grace that won who saw to wish her stay” (43). Even in this paradise, every other beautiful creation is drawn to Eve. She walks
