The "breath of life" that god breathed into Adam was only done because god noticed that "there was not a man to till the ground." Gen.2;5 So God "formed" a man of the dust of the ground and breathed into him "the breath of life."
Then God planted a garden himself, and put the one man Adam into it, and gave him instructions not to eat of the tree of knowledge. Eve wasn't even "made" yet.
Oh yea, Immediatly after god gave Adam the "breath of life" he brought the animals to Adam to name. They hadn't names yet. So thats why it looks like the breath of life is language. At this time Cave men began to become civilized in Mesopotamia.
But when they ate the apple, they had already been living in the garden, dressing and keeping it for a while. Gen.3;6
The importance of why Eve was created from a rib(lungs) is the same as to how Adam got from God's own mouth, the breath of life. It's this beginning of language that John 1;1 mentions as "In the beginning was the word." Was not the word the beginning of gramatical language which gives us the ability to think much clearer and deeper thoughts. And thats how civilization developed so quickly there, language power. The whole bible is full of allusions to this. dan b
