    The Bible says man. start in the Mesopotamia area

    It identified as one of the rivers as the Euphrates in the general region

     but the landscape has changed because of a global flood but yes mankind got his start in that area however

    As far as race

    Is concern it was in the division of the races until the migration. Before then mankind color did not factor into their population of the Earth

    What eventually divided mankind was language barrier as people spoke different languages that group sectioned-off it eventually migrated to the different regions of the Earth that's why people who are African can vary in skin color as well as Europeans but depending on how far north, how far south they migrated that would determine the lineage

    Also be isolated however concentrate more of search characteristics in that particular group

    Funny how Christians depict Adam and eve as European when it is obvious if they were the first humans they should be black.

    If there were real people behind Adam and Eve myth, they were not the "first humans ever" (there had never been "first humans ever"!), but more likely the founders of a settled farming community in Canaan gathering ancient Israelite tribes.

    The Fall chapter in Genesis is an obvious allegory of the Neolithic revolution when Middle-Eastern growing populations were forced to give up hunting-gathering for hard farming work.

    So, those allegoric Adam and Eve might have lived somewhere between 5000 and 10,000 years ago. Long after the main Out-of-Africa migration 60,000 years ago, even after Neanderthal extinction around 30,000 years.

    Adam and eve never existed. The first humans were not black. African doesn't equal black. Most mammals have light skin that is covered by fur, and biologists believe that EARLY HUMAN ANCESTORS started out this way also. Dark skin probably evolved after humans lost their body fur, because the naked skin was vulnerable to the strong UV radiation. We all came from pale skinned Africans. Lucy had pale skin under her body hair. So did H.Erectus, Denisovans and Neanderthals. We all came from pale skinned Africans. Nothing original or important came from black people.

    No. The story of of Adam and Eve is often considered to be an allegory. Findings in population genetics indicate that a single first "Adam and Eve" pair of human beings never existed.

    Neandertals, Homo neanderthalensis evolved probably from Homo heidelbergensis in Europe and western Asia. Denisovans evolved in eastern Asia and H sapiens evolved, also from H heidelbergensis, in Africa about 250,000 years ago. H sapiens migrated out of Africa into Asia about 100,000 years ago.

    There were two routes taken, one following the Mediterranean coast into western Asia then across Asia north of the Himalayas, and the other across the southern end of the Red Sea to the Arabian peninsula then following the coast to India south of the Himalayas and on to Australia. 

    The dark skinned African people maintained their dark skin on the southern route but evolved lighter skin on the northern route to compensate for the weaker Sun in higher latitudes.

    Adam and Eve never existed. By six thousand years ago, all continents in the world except Antarctica were colonised and the world population was about 30 million.

    The body of the first human was found in Africa, Ethiopia to be exact at 2.8 million years old.

    No.  They weren't.

    Besides, the "out of Africa theory" is just that...theory.

    Most of the bones they've found are from "bipeds", not human.
