There are Scripture passages, and I cite some of these in my book,
that suggest the prophets were well aware there were on the
earth both Adamites and Pre-Adamites or Non-Adamites. The
differentiation in Hebrew is ish for common man, or generic man,
and adam for descendants of Adam. There are even instances where
ish and adam are used in the same sentence. Unfortunately,
translators sanitized the Scriptures by using "man" in all
instances, thus bluring the distinction.
