Is the word “literal” in there? Did I miss it?

What? Is naming the people not literal enough for you?

When Paul states “Adam was formed first and then Eve”, it leaves very little room for doubt that there was a literal Adam and Eve. It's similar to listing them in a genealogy as Matthew or Luke does. Surely you wouldn't say that a listing of your great-great-grandfather in some body’s genealogy book is not to be taken literally.

Now whether or not you accept the scriptures as fact is another issue.
