  1. I ordered this product to use in home schooling our two daughters. I was delighted to find this very useful tool. The lamination option is also very useful since my 19 month old daughter is fascinated with markers. Thank you for a great product at a very reasonable price.

  2. so all humans stem from two people? That’s a whole lot of incest

    1. RE: ‘That’s a whole lot of incest’. Yes, in today’s world, what was happening prior to the Law being given to Israel could be perceived as incest. However, we need to remember that Adam and Eve were ‘perfect’ and their ‘seed’ or offspring would be ‘near perfect’ copies of them, living for hundreds of years. However, after the Flood of Noah’s day, you will notice a drastic decline in the length of life. In addition, when The Most High chose Israel and gave them the 613 laws, among them were laws forbidding close relation marriage/intercourse. Those laws are still being used today to prevent birth defects, now that we are thousands of years removed from perfection. Hope this helps a little. Shalom.

    2. Adam was the first Homo stellaris, a genetically modified Homo sapien. Eve was his clone. Their genetics were dominant over the recessive humans. What you call incest was necessary for the Adamec civilization to flourish.
