Adam and Eve were the first human beings, if the Bible is to be believed. They are also considered the first rednecks, since they are siblings who had sexual intercourse with each other. If Charlie Darwin is to be believed, they would have been Neanderthals. Christian fundamentalists think it's much nicer to believe the Bible than to believe Darwin. Incidentally, if you are a religious fundamentalist and believe the story of Adam and Eve then you look a bit Neanderthal.
