Sabrina's Question: "Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons
since they weren't born the same way we were?"


Dear Sabrina,

What a cute and creative question!!!
I think most people would agree that we on earth could not POSSIBLY know this
question for sure, but I'm going to give you my best guesses.

My answer would be no and yes!

Since Adam came from dirt, and Eve came from his rib, there wouldn't have been a necessary reason for an
umbilical cord, as I'm sure you've figured out! So that would mean no belly button.

BUT! I have to believe that since God is so orderly that He probably put the system in place for the rest of
the humans that would come after them.

To sum it up, I believe that even though they probably did NOT have belly buttons (that would look so
weird, wouldn't it?), that they STILL had the right parts to make them for the humans after them.  Kind of
like a tool kit?

Of COURSE, bear in mind that God is God, and He started the creation of the whole world by saying, "Let
there be LIGHT!!!!"   So if He wanted to, His creation for the belly button could've been as simple as Him
shouting, "LET THERE BE BELLY BUTTONS!"  Or He could've just stuck his finger on their tummies,
and Wah Lah! A cute little knot right in the middle.  :)

We'll know all about umbilical cords and tummy buttons when we get to Heaven, won't we?  Thanks for
asking such a great question! I learned a lot, too!

Big hugs and winks,
Mrs. Shaw
