Why were people so much smaller those days?
I found this:
"As it turns out, the answer is remarkably un-dramatic. Currently, the average height of men worldwide measures in at 5 feet, 9 inches. Turn the clock back 1000 years and the average height then was 5 feet, 8 inches. So in the last 1000 years weíve grown an inch? Not quite. In around the 1600ís when our health and sanitation hadnít yet caught up to the size of growing cities, human height was averaging 5 feet, 5 inches."
So, it seems, according to this article, how much we've "grown" is all in how far back you want to look. It seems we've picked up some over the past 100 or so years...
Hmmmm,.....Adam & Eve must have "averaged" about 3 ft. 6 inches! No wonder Eve was tempted by the apple; she wasn't much taller than the serpent!
With those short legs, she couldn't have run away from the serpent anyway.
A world average is sort of meaningless. I'm pretty sure an average based just on the U.S. population would show folks became significantly taller in the century 1860 - 1960, just as a similar comparison would show folks have become massively obese in the century 1900 - 2000.
I'm guessing Adam was much shorter than Eve. That's why it was her who picked the apple.
As for the serpent, it must have stood tall at least once or none of us would be here today.
