Since Man Was Created First, Why Did God Give Man Nipples?Page 2 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
A major pandoras box here and quite unsettling for some to accept. Since God gave us a brain and we have used this brain and are able to determine that all people are conceived as females (we know this beyond a doubt for sure) and that we are not made male until later it brings up an even stickier quiestion.

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Life begins at conception, i.e. it is when I am created and since I am conceived female therefore since I was CREATED in God's image I must then draw the logical conclusion that God is indeed female correct?

If not and life does not begin at conception, then the whole abortion issue becomes a moot point as we have two sides to an argument, one claiming life begins at conception and the other side saying they have an inalienable right to determine how their bodies are to be used. Nowhere in that heated debate is there a third side saying, hold on, maybe there is another definition to when life begins.

Me personally? Life is the condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally.

Therefore I firmly believe that life does indeed begin at conception. Then again, I Personally happen to believe God is a woman.

So with the nipple question cleared up I would really love to know if Adam had a belly button? I mean think about it, he wasn't born like the rest of us were so logically adam should not have a belly button right?

okay I have to say it...........there are several verses in the Old Testament where God speaks as a plurality........ the most common one that people remember is "Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;[/b} and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth,” Gen. 1:26,

So......after reading some of this stuff.......where "God" makes reference to "himself".....gotta say............lmao................if there is a "God", he was not alone........therefore......where did he get the notion of putting nipples on man? From his wife.......uh huh........... what is that other saying.............behind every great man there is a great wife..........

Tiny Hotspot,

The quote is "behind every great man there is a strong woman" not a wife. Some of the greatest people that happen to be blessed or cursed (depending on one's view) with a certain chromosone pairing never have gotten married. That strong woman could be their mother. Ugh. Wife. Ugh, it doesn't take a wife. There are strong gay men that have a terrific partner.

It should be updated. Behind every strong homo sapien is another homo sapien that believes in and supports the wants, needs, and dreams of said first homosapien.

OKAY THAT'S IT! I'M GOING BACK TO LAW SCHOOL!

If I were a beliver, I think both Adam and Eve had belly buttons...........God would have had to poke them to see if they were done enough before releasing them onto the world.........

It might be also that is why pregnant women's belly buttons pop out........when the baby is time to be born..........lmao.........at least that is what some young pregnant women thought........LOL

I think the question rests on a false assumption. Mankind wasn't created, we evolved.

Since Man Was Created First, Why Did God Give Man Nipples?


The biological explanations state good reasons why modern man has nipples. The question about where does the Bible state that Adam had nipples is also good. Now, if God knew that he would reproduce the species, then he would also know that nipples would be required, so he created the primitive variety that he gave to man, and further developed them in Eve. If you can't thank God for nipples, then you probably won't thank him for anything.

^^^ So God knew that he would be making Eve when he and Adam went through the garden trying to find a suitable companion among the animals.

Makes the search seem rather masturbatory to me.

He might have known that you can't read. I said he knew that he would want to reproduce the species, and even a tiny clone cluster would need nourishment when it grew to the size of a baby. Apparently God is capable of understanding objectives and figuring out how to accomplish them on the fly.

I happen to know the answer to this.

It's so that no matter how powerful a man becomes, he always has at least one part that's completely useless.

All I can think of when seeing this silly thread is the commercial that runs for "All in the Family" on Deja Vu where Archie is explaining Adam and Eve to Meathead...

"God made Adam first...then he made Eve out of Adam's rib.... cheaper cut."

hi tim i didnt get a chance to read through all the answers but i heard its because men when forming their organs in the womb are actually a female at first and ten the male anatimy turns from an inny to an outty. so thats why men have nipples were all females first.

Speak for you self, my nipples each have their own unique look and feel. They can even get jealous of each other. But yeah Pontiacdude, they really do look a a lot alike.

Some great comments, I've really enjoyed reading them.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas on this obscure subject.

For the same reason that flightless birds have wings, why blind creatures have eyes, why some whales have legs, etc.
Its probably an unpopular subject on these forums so I don't think I'll elaborate further.

God wasn't infallible until the church declared him so. He just screwed up. The beginning when he created everything he ordered too many nipples and so when he made man he used some up. This is also why many mammals have extra sets, as many as ten pairs. He couldn't send them back and didn't want them laying about getting in the way. He figured men could use the pleasure of having their nipples played with during sex, to take their mind off the pain of intercourse. That was before he decided to make vaginae. (Remember, he started with Adam and then Eve was added later.) It's also so that women with very small breasts have someone even flatter to compare with, so they don't feel so bad. "Well, I guess it could be worse." They taught all this in health class at school. You must have been gone that day, or were home schooled.

if one reads Genesis carefully, it can be shown that Adam wasn't the first "man"

lol Okay. Scientifically speaking...every human being starts out as female. Look it up! It's true! In the end of the first trimester there is a flux in hormone that decides on whether or not the fetus stays female or changes to male. X Y chromosome stuff. You know. Pretty cool eh? Thus the presents of nipples on a man. This next little observation done best when you're chilled after a swim or after a bath. I want all you gents to look at your scrotums. On the bottom of it there is a line that runs from your crotch to the base of your penis. That would have been your vagina.

There has never been documentation that Adam had children before Eve gave him the nod. Poor Adam. lol

I read a lot of material on different religions. Kind of a hobby for me. Or maybe I still haven't found what I'm looking for. Oh well...tis for me to figure out.

Hope the stuff I talked about gives room for contemplation.

Very thoughtful and cerebral replies -- WOW
