Noah, & then his sons, were Adam's direct descendants according to a literal reading of the biblical genealogies.

  Hi George, you wrote:

  According to Genesis Abraham is the ancestor not only of Israel but of Edom, the Ishmaelites & all the descendants of Keturah. So yes, he is "the father of many nations" biologically.

  But the other point I made is really more devastating to Dick's claim: The biblical ascribes the descent of many other people besides Israel to Adam.

  "Devastating"? Surely you are being over dramatic. Actually as I remember Genesis all those "other people" came from Noah through Ham, Shem, and Japheth. None of Adam's immediate kin survived the flood - unless you know of some.
