The Bible says God created Adam from the dust of the ground, and Eve from the rib bone of Adam. Is there any evidence for these claims?
"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" (Genesis 2:7).
Every element found in the human body can be found in the minerals of the surface of the Earth. How could the writer of Genesis know this in his time thousands of years ago?
"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" (Genesis 2:21-23)
The rib is the only bone in the entire human body that is able to fully regenerate itself if surgically removed correctly. It also one of five major harvesting sites for bone marrow. We have proven in a lab that we can regrow entire human organs via bone marrow transplants. The other four choices to gather bone marrow, if removed even in part, could result in serious injury or most likely death.
The writer of Genesis had the odds of 1 in 182 to pick the only bone in the human body that can regenerate itself. As well as being one of five bones in the human body that you can harvest bone marrow from.
The writer didn't have to choose the dust of the ground or a human bone for being part of the creation process, but could have said God magically created humans from nothing, or anything else!
Another interesting point is that only the male has both X and Y chromosomes and the female XX. So you must begin with the male specimen, otherwise you're missing the Y information on the transfer.
It appears that God chose to act within his own laws, with one possible reason being to give evidence to the reader that the writings are scientifically accurate.
