During an international theological conference, where great and renowned theologians were gathered together to study the book of Genesis, the Russian delegate proposed that Adam and Eve were Russians.
This has cause an uproar among other theologians, especially the middle easterners. The Catholic and Reformed delegates were on the verge of calling brimstone from heaven; the Wesleyan and Lutheran were on their feet; the Anglican and Greek Orthodox had their eye-brow raised. Others were cursing and swearing. Some even tore their clothes while shouting, "Anathema!"
Nonetheless, being theologians, these delegates gathered patience to listen to the Russian's thesis. And after hearing his explanation, everyone calmed down. He gave 3 reasons for his thesis:
First, Adam and Eve had nothing to wear. Their only coverings were sewed fig leaves and animal skins.
Secondly, both Adam and Eve had only one apple which they had to share among themselves.
And lastly, they have been told that they were in paradise.
