Since Adam and Eva never had the opportunity to snack from the apple tree, they remained, so to speak, immortal and were not deported. Today, We meet them again after they gained some insights into nature and techniques during a couple of decades. Let us listen to their talk:
“Even though we have seen neither an apple tree nor a verbose serpentine, nor a God, I think we are here in the paradise”, Eve said while sipping the highly aromatic coffee.
A few days after experiencing the ‘WOW effect’ with fresh coffee berries, Adam and Eve detected the wonderful odor emanating from their open fire pit, when using the dried chimp poops as fuel. Since then they collected the coffee either from the poops of monkeys and civets, or used berries from the tree after sucking off the pulp. Then, they roasted them gently in the embers and after grinding in a wooden mortar, they smoothly cooked (in water from the Omo River) the fine powder in a skull and drank the brew using a freshwater shell.
“Why do you think we are here in the paradise?”, Adam asked during a pause of slurping.
“As you know”, Eve said, “I had left our place here for a while and tramped with some of my offsprings (sorry, I should better say “our offsprings”) along the Nile to reach the land where Mother Holle, another goddess never seen by anyone, is told to pour frozen water over the landscape and the Neanderthals living there.”
“I know this story, and you have told me repeatedly about the ‘liaison’ you had with Andy, the Neanderthal. Today, I ask myself why you came back and left this superman as well as the mutts you produced with him?”
“Because I realized that Andy and his tribe will have no chance to survive, even though they are fairly resistant to coldness and dispose of an excellent practical intelligence - unlike you, Adam!”
“Why are you so confident in their perishing ?”
“As you know, when they bury their dead people, they do not add grave goods.”
“Yes, but why not?”
“Because other Neanderthals would desecrate the graves and steal the goods. They never adopted a numinous codex respecting provisions of the individual for living and for the trip to God. They behave like monkeys and steal from each other.”
“I knew you were a smart woman! What you tell me is nothing else than a proof for God’s existence!”, Adam cried out.
“I know. It’s a trick of God. The hominins who didn’t or don’t practice (with symbols) their belief in Him, became or will become extinct.”
After this tiring discussion they prepared another skull of coffee and made peace with each other.
