    Why did Adam's sin got to other mankinds created on the sixth day seperate from Adam?
    The Scriptural answer can be found in a lot of what Paul wrote.Romans 8:3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:1 Corinthians 15:40-50There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.Galatians 5:16-17This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.More reading can be found in Galatians 5 and 6 on the subject. However, you can see from the above verses that all flesh is corrupt.Romans 3:23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;Romans 5:12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:The one man is Adam. Adam was the first to sin because he was the first man to whom sinning became possible - perhaps the best definition of sin I have ever heard is to do something that goes against God and what he says. The Lord told Adam what to do and he went against it; the humans created on day 6 did not have this knowledge. That's what the flesh does - we're weak and constantly fall to sin. It's the same way a child cannot be held for sin until the age of accountability where they know the difference.If I can clarify anything I said above, let me know.
    That's because God did destroy all other mankinds in the great flood, and only Noah's descendants (Adam's descendants) survived.
    This is a touchy topic and it will step on some toes. The translation of the Bible does make it look like the flood was a worldwide event when in reality it was not because of the specific Hebrew used. It is the same phrase that is found in Genesis 4 when Cain said:Genesis 4:14Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.I hope to do a Bible Study on this in the future, but the phrase here is the same one used to describe the flood. Can was not literally banished from the Earth to go live on Mars. He was banished from that part or region of the world. Noah's flood was regional as well. There was another global flood at the end of the first Earth Age, and this is responsible for a lot of the confusion. You can see our Bible Study on that for clarification.There's no other explanation for the rapid increase of the population post flood and this is perfectly Biblical if you let God's Word do the talking.
