What are the origins of Adam and Eve, the world's best-known creation story' There is a strong concordance with the Genesis story of two Egyptian historical figures, Akhenaton and Nefertiti. The early chapters of Genesis are a perfect retelling of Pharaoh Akhenaton's Hymn to Aton. Aton was a god who later became the Jewish god Adjon, and later Adam. Ellis posits, with much compelling evidence, that Adam and Eve were actually Pharaoh Akhenaton and his famous wife, Queen Nefertiti. The downfall of Adam and Eve is also a reflection of the downfall of this Egyptian royal couple, as Akhenaton and Nefertiti were cruelly deposed. The river of Eden is described as having four branches, and only the Nile fits this description. That means Egypt was actually the Garden of Eden, and the true crucible for the Genesis story.
