    All the Abrahamic religions have some teaching about Adam and Eve (as far as i know)

    The question is, is Adam and Eve the true names of the very first human beings? or is that something that come later?

    If they were the first humanoids on earth, do they not predate Homosapiens too?
    Where they actually a different form of humans?

    Guess it depends how one understand the story :)

    They could have looked like humans, except that they wouldn't have had navels, unless God thought that they should have some just for the fun of it :D

    To me, the story is a metaphor for the first humans to become aware of duality: right/wrong, good/bad and so forth. That resulted in the loss of primordial innocence that exists in the animal kingdom.

    Many of the early chapters in Genesis especially are probably largely "myths" [doesn't mean falsehood] meant to teach some basic beliefs and teachings within early Judaism, thus not necessarily to be taken literally.

    I believe so.

    I believe they were humans like us, but less corrupt, their DNA didn’t have as many flaws/mutations.

    Learn evolution.
    There is a very slow transition from ape to human. A bit like going from Black to White, there is no distinct moment when black stops being grey and becomes white

    Maybe evolution is true. And maybe evolution is not true. Remember it's called "The theory of evolution".

    Learn what "Theory" means in science.
    Gravity is a theory; heard of Germ Theory, etc

    You do not accept The Theory of Evolution - that is 101 biology

    There is no point in discussing this any further
