Concepts & Sources dealing with
the Origin, Identity & Position of Adam & Eve

A Continuation of the 230+ Sources on Adam God

[This document about Adam God was offered on the internet a few years ago.  I do not know it's  author,
but would surely give them credit if they simply write me.  adam-god@ldshistroy.net   The Adam God
document arrived to me in a Zip format and seemed to have duplicate sections.  I cleaned it up as much
as I could.  I have done extensive work on this table to make it even more readable.  I will add hyper links to the source documents where time permits and sources are easily available.]

I have recently had a very forceful Epiphany, a major paradigm shift, yea even a change of heart! See Disclaimer.
