If you narrow down your understanding of what Genesis means to the point where any proof it didn’t happen just like in the Little Golden Bible illustrations throws you, you’re reading it wrong.

Yes. But the point I was trying to make (and perhaps should have made more clearly), is that Ham and the rest of the fundamentalists insist, and correctly I think, that the key theologian of the early church, Paul, really pinned the heart of his Christology on Jesus being the “second Adam” and that the original Adam was a real physical individual, and that every person alive is descended from that individual.
