Creationism based on the Bible and the legend of Adam and Eve is religion. I believe that religion should not be taught in any state run schools. Pure science should be taught in state run institutions of education.

Netherless, what people have chosen to believe in their private life is their own business. If people want to believe that the story of Adam and Eve is history, that is their own private issue. In my own personal way of thinking the story of Adam and Eve is just an allegory.

In any case, the story of Adam and Eve is plagiarism. The Jews pinched the idea from the Babylonians when they were out that way.

and of course "Noah's Flood" was pinched from the Epic of Gilgamesh.

Then there was the much earlier culture's "story of the garden of eden" wherein the creator-deity Created Woman First.

Makes sense. After all, why have men got nipples?

It's becoming likely that the flood mythology, which is global, may have a factual basis. It seems that the last ice age ended very abruptly 12,000 years ago due to volcanic activity. Gobekli Tepi in Turkey is over 11,000 years old and there are submerged structures even older in India.

I have little doubt that there may of been some event that inspired the story but I think the biblical account is shear twaddle. The idea that the land and mountains got covered is just not possible as we do not have that much water on earth. The other aspect is the rain causing such a flood would need an equal amount of water to evaporate from the sea. It would be the equivalent of one massive waterfall going in reverse and going up into the sky. It is also not possible that clouds can carry such amounts of water. Now if we are talking about some sort of tsunami then I feel it could have happened to a local region but the bible does not say a big wave of water arrived.

I think that the Biblical story, which is not original, was 'theorised' by writers who had not witnessed such an event. Hence the rain. The Sumerians were used to local flooding and so adapted their experiences to the ancient tales of a post ice age cataclysm. A Sumerian ark has been reconstructed in accordance with building instructions found on clay tablets. And it floated.

there is one (perhaps recent) theory that the villages on the bottom of the Black Sea (or is it Caspian?) were where the story originated from, or from the ice-age's ending raised the sea levels enough that the Mediterranean overspilled suddenly backwards across the narrow straights between Turkey and Europe, and "suddenly" flooded and filled the former lake valley to its present day levels (more or less). I guess the story of this event was supposedly carried southwards to the middle east for inclusion and "improvement" as scripture.
