The Adam and Eve Frozen riddle is explained while the belly button theory reappears
An old mystery involving a frozen Adam and Eve resurfaced this spring, baffling netizens.
Puzzles have grown in popularity during the Covid-19 pandemic as lockdown has forced people to find new ways to entertain themselves at home. Those looking for a daily challenge found it in the form of a riddle as the brain teasers were shared far and wide on social media. And it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon.
The latest viral mystery takes inspiration from the Bible. Let’s take a look at how the millennial story of Adam and Eve has been reworked into a modern enigma.
The riddle “Frozen Adam and Eve”.
As is usual with puzzles, wording may vary. But the general wording of the Adam and Eve riddle goes something like this…
“Scientists dug in Antarctica and found two bodies frozen in a block of ice. One of the scientists knew immediately that it was Adam and Eve. But how did you know that?”
Read on for the frustratingly simple explanation
Mystery solution explained
Scientists can be smarter than most. But seeing the identity of two frozen bodies instantly at a glance suggests there’s an obvious sign to watch.
The answer is: They didn’t have belly buttons.
How does that work? Well, in the Christian Bible neither Adam nor Eve were born, they were created. Adam was created by God from dust, then Eve was created from Adam’s rib. All descendants of Adam and Eve have belly buttons since they were born from the first two humans. A belly button is scar tissue where a baby’s umbilical cord was once attached in the womb. Neither Adam nor Eve have a belly button as they were never born.
Adam and Eve’s belly buttons have baffled people for years
Although this riddle correctly states that it is unlikely that Adam and Eve from the Bible would have belly buttons, the two figures had such physical characteristics in other media.
“Do you know what is funny? Painting of Adam & Eve where both have belly buttons. Think about it,” joked one Twitter user. “Take as much time as you need.”
This quote has become its own Adam and Eve belly button riddle, with some not understanding that neither character would have a belly button. It has the same answer as the “frozen” puzzle.
