The Creation Of Adam and Eve
The Hebrew for man is pronounced aw-dawm, from which Adam is derived. It's also related to aw-dawm-ah, which means red earth, or red clay - indicating the natural earth elements that composed Adam's body, and the body of every human being since (see the Fact Finder question below).
"And God said, Let us [see "Let Us"] make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them."
Humans were created by God, in the image of God. Humans came up from the ground, not down from the trees. If Adam were around today, perhaps his primary message to many of his deceived children would be, "Don't let Satan make a monkey out of me. Or out of you."
