The name Eve/Eab/Age stems from the Latin aetas, which is from aevum, 'lifetime.' The word aetas is remarkably similar to the name Aides, i.e. Hades. Eve, you see, is not Adam's wife but Adam's father, Zeus bronnton, Zeus 'the thunderer/earthshaker, ' Poseidon, the fallen - or, better still, suspended, mediating - aspect of God!
If Adam and Eve were not hunter-gatherers, then they were certainly gatherers. But, then, consumer desire, or self-embitterment, or the 'itch, ' as Schopenhauer called it, appeared in the shape of the serpent. This capitalistic monster awakens in Adam and Eve the possibility that things could be better. Instantly, they are cast out of the garden and condemned to a life of toil, drudgery, and pain. Wants supplanted needs, and things have been going downhill ever since.
So where does the name Adam's apple come from? Most people say that it is from the notion that this bump was caused by the forbidden fruit getting stuck in the throat of Adam in the Garden of Eden.

Dr. Murray made it clear to me before I left that a woman who enhoys the Act is as loose as a harlot. God gives pleasure in it only to husbands. Women are the source of evil and temptation, therefore women are to blame when men fall into fleshly error. It was Eve who seduced Adam, Eve who entered into league with the serpent, who was the Devil in disguise. So the only pleasure women are allowed is in their children.
We believe that the creation of a woman was the crowning and final and most glorified moment of human creation. That we start with light and dark and land and sea and we move through fish and fowl and beasts of the field and we get to Adam and it's still not good enough. And only when Eve was created - this is our theology [... ] - that is our theology, that the crowning creation and the glory of the human experience came with the creation of Eve.
