Adam & Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden on a Friday??

I'm watching a documentary about the evolution of superstition... It stated that a common belief among Christians through the middle ages was that Friday was the day Adam & Eve were expelled from the Garden and also the day that the flood of Noah started...

Just wondering if this was true? I never heard this belief before...

  • It's kinda like the whole Jesus birth day, and death. No body knows the days. The days back then were different then the days now. Some cultures have more days then we do now and some had less.

  • No, ladies, there was no Friday at that point. Which is why the belief is so strange because simple common sense seems to negate the belief... But it's still kinda interesting...

  • been a christian for 25 yrs and thats first I have heard of that.
    As for the birth of Jesus they do know.. it tells it in the bible. You have to have an understanding of the timing of the feasts to figure it out and it wasnt Dec 25th either :-)
