BLURB:

Nearly every religion and society in the world today begins with the story of Adam and Eve. And yet, this
most basic story is couched in mysticism, myth, and vague detail. Did such a couple really exist? Were
they the first man and woman on our planet, or is there more to the story?

For two hundred thousand years the Neanderthal race ruled Earth, then mysteriously, 40,000 years ago they disappeared forever leaving behind a new race of people -- the Cro-Magnon. Why? What happened back then that changed our history forever?

The Garden of Eden -- a perfect home built and designed for two people until the serpent arrived. Who was the serpent? And what was he doing there in the first place?Is there a chance that the serpent is actually a reference to some hidden sexual transgression?

Imagine traveling billions of light years across space to settle an unknown world populated by primitive barbarians. Imagine being alone, just you and your spouse, the two of you in charge of an entire world with only your faith and your mission to guide you -- and, of course, the devil waiting for that fatal mistake.

Excerpt:

Adam and Eve rose and walked toward the edge of the meadow and a pile of granite rocks that jutted abruptly out of the ground where the grass ended. Though covered with a dusting of snow, the boulders afforded them a sturdy foothold and it was relatively easy to climb to the mountain’s vertex. As they climbed, the two could tell that the mountain was quite high, perhaps eight or nine thousand metrons. As they neared the apex, the two caught glimpses of the ocean that lay twenty hexons or more in the distance—the water was a pristine, a sparkling blue, but that was nothing compared to what came next. At the very pinnacle of the peak, Adam and Eve had their breath stolen away.

For there, lying below to their bird’s eye view was one of the most beautiful and
picturesque sights that they had ever seen on the Terran planet—a huge peninsula of
magnificence and majesty jutting into the blue ocean waters. Adam and Eve gazed upon the long, slender land mass that protruded into the sea for a good fifty to sixty hexons. The actual length was difficult to judge because the land mass became obscured in the distance. Its width was also hard to ascertain for its shape was erratic, but the range appeared to be between twenty hexons at its narrowest point and forty hexons at its widest. The peninsula also contained a small mountain range with snow-capped peaks and there was a large river angling the length of the cape. The river appeared swift in its movement, dividing the finger of land in half before finally emptying out into the sea somewhere at the peninsula’s end.

Transfixed by the beauty of the rugged terrain, Adam and Eve gazed upon the
picturesque scene that now held a mystery all its own. For at the base of the mountain
upon which they stood, the couple could see where the peninsula merged with the
mainland. And there, curiously enough, were two straight lines running parallel to
each other—lines that ran the entire width of the peninsula, forming a barrier or dual
wall. Did this wall protect the peninsula in some way? That was Adam’s immediate
thought—for on the mainland side he could see animals grazing and wilderness. But on the peninsula side there were checkerboard patches of cultivated land, and a network of thin, web-like trails, and dwellings. Was that a village partially hidden by the trees? Suddenly Eve noticed something. “Is that a pyramid?” she queried, pointing to a dark colored mass, it form nestled against the base of the mountains.
“I think so,” said Adam. “How?” remarked Eve. “What is this place?” “This is Eden,” replied Lanna, proudly, his form rising up and behind them. “This will be your home on Terran. It is being prepared for you and your future off spring. It is a garden retreat on which Plon and Janno have been working on for almost seventy-five years. They are building it in anticipation of your arrival.”
