“then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed.” ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭2:7-8‬ ‭

When God made man/Adam, did God make Adam complete with all the parts necessary to procreate seeing he had no one to procreate with? Eve was made later from man

“Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”” ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭2:18‬ ‭

  • Anything in particular that makes you think he wouldn't be, aside from the lack of a mate?

    Because this is used to argue that heavenly beings because they don’t have female counterparts therefore don’t have the equipment to procreate @curiousdannii Oct 1, 2021 at 13:25

New American Standard Bible Genesis 1:

26 Then God said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the livestock and over all the earth, and over every crawling thing that crawls on the earth.” 27So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Both Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day. Adam might be a few hours older than Eve. It's likely that both were created to be capable of procreation (multiplication).


The Bible does not say. So aside from that ; would result in hypothetical assumption.

We know they conceived already. Normally we don't see God make something half way then augment it later. Procreation by people takes more than just the parts. Knowledge for what to do and people to consciously agree.

  • @NihilSineDeo you are assuming More interpretation into the statement " not good to be alone " than what the verse plainly said. We know its not good to be alone from life lived. But male and female were already present by day 6. For me its a non issue. Its one that if not careful you can make up things about in the mind not expressed in The Bible.

  • I gave your question a like by way for at least trying. But not because it was a good question. : (
