Were Adam and Eve Redheads?
Ruddy is the English word that is used to translate the original Hebrew word of the Old Testament, pronounced ad-mow-nee, which means red, or reddish. The most famous "redhead" of Bible History is King David (i.e. "for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance" 1 Samuel 17:42 KJV), although he is most certainly not the first, perhaps going all the way back to the first humans. Adam is from the Hebrew word, pronounced aw-dawm, which although came to mean man (both male and female), literally means reddish or blushed. Adam was created from the "red clay" of the earth, in Hebrew pronounced aw-dah-mah, and Eve was genetically identical to Adam.

The creation of the first man:
"These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that The Lord God [see YHVH, Adonai, Jehovah, LORD] made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for The Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground."
"And The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." [see also Where Is Your Soul?]
"And The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed." (Genesis 2:4-8 KJV)
The creation of the first woman, from the first man:
"And The Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him" (Genesis 2:18 KJV)
"And The Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which The Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man."
"And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (Genesis 2:21-24 KJV)
