    Why do paintings of Adam depict him with a belly button? He was not born from a placental mammal, earthly mother, and so had no umbilical cord to be cut to form a belly button!

    He came from a “supernatural placenta” with a “supernatural umbilical cord” 😛

    Probably for the same reason they are usually also white Caucasian.

    why would an artist be concerned with scientific accuracy?

    Some of us who are serious about deriving our faith from the Holy Bible, don't pay any attention to religious artwork.

    Imaginative artwork has a much lower priority, if any. What is written is the most important thing.

    That's where God pulled out the rib to make Eve.

    For the last time, Adam was a white Caucasion with a belly button!!

    Let's put an end to such speculations and potential heresy!! 😠

    Now for more questions.

    1. Was Adam tall or short?
    2. Blue eyes or brown?
    3. Righty or lefty or both?

    Scientific accuracy? Or biblical accuracy?

    Isnt man being made in "God's image" important?
    (Important enough to put in the book)

    So does God have a belly button? ... Discuss

    Yes, God has this funny habit of only inspiring a few random ancient Jews. How do we know this? Because one of the inspired ancient Jews said so!

    Please don't twist my thread. We are not discussing the relative merits between the written word and artwork. We are solely discussing Adm's navel in artwork. Any views jaywill?

    Incidentally, in my view, the art that Christianity inspired, both musical (Bach's Passions and B minor Mass, the Requiems of Faure, Brahms, Verdi, Handel's Messiah, Haydn's Creation and so much more) and the artwork of the Renassance is so much more inspirational than the written word of the Bible.

    It is to prove he evolved from an ape. Another one of Satan's tricks. 😀

    I think most sane Christiams these days accept that Adam was a myth. I am not questioning Christian dogma here (perish the thought!), just gently and rather naughtily posing the question as to why artists of the Renaissance turned reaon off when they painted their beautiful masterpieces.
