I have a question that no Christian I have ever asked can answer. Maybe someone here can enlighten me. Why is it, that in every picture you see of Adam and Eve, they have belly buttons? If they were created as the first humans why would they need a belly button?
Because the artists probably didn't know from where belly buttons came. The people who commissioned the paintings and did them (usually men) weren't bright enough make the connection between an umbilical cord (which they'd probably never seen before) and a belly button as they usually and traditionally weren't in the room when women were giving birth.
In the middle ages it was considered a mater of importance, if Adam and Eve had belly buttons. So much so that the theology often changed with the administration, so artists were forced to use fig leaves etc to cover the area, in fear of being charged with a crime if they got it wrong, or a new bishop had different ideas.
Answer: Man is made in the image of God, and God has a belly button. And why is this you may well ask, to which the answer is that He fucked his own mother before He existed so that He could be born into existence, hence His belly button. That answer tends to annoy the crap out all Christian fundamentalists.
When Adam got his rib nicked, had to remove from his body so was born what we know as the belly button. Making Eve, had to shove that rib thro skin so same deal. A hole for ribs.
BTW this is where the term "rib eye" came from, for all the carnivores out there who have laid awake at night contemplating the great mysteries of life.
Mysterious ways and all that
