According to the Biblical story of creation, Adam was created from the dust of the ground and was given the Garden of Eden to live in. Then it was in the Garden of Eden that Eve was created from a rib of Adam, in the Garden of Eden itself. It is believed that even though the Garden of Eden was created for Adam, Eve was the one who was born there. Some readings suggest that Adam was also created in Eden but none of the reading or theory tells us about the country they were born in, or what was their nationality.

Since the story of creation in the book of Genesis is biblical or mythical, it is difficult for researchers to tell about the place of their birth exactly. Different people maintain different theories, however.
One theory says that it’s futile to talk about the geographical location of the birth of Adam and Eve since the regional boundaries were not there when God created them. The boundaries were charted out only after the account of the flood in Bible.
Some theorists, however, maintain that the first man and woman were born in Asia Minor, more specifically, in Turkey. Watch this video for more information.
Quite interestingly, the people of Nigeria believe that Adam and Eve were born in Africa, and have a valid explanation for it too. It’s the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, who explains this in an interview saying that both of them were born in “Ogma Edena” which translates to “where mankind was created” and is believed to be the real Garden of Eden. If we go by this theory, Adam and Eve are Africans. The people of Ife also believe that the current condition of Nigeria is because God is still punishing the place where the first ancestors of mankind committed the original sin.
