    The first human - the "Father of Humanity".   According to the biblical narrative in Genesis 2:7, on the sixth day of Creation Adam's physical form was built by God, and then God "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." (NIV)

Adam was the first man to have surgery performed on him - and it was by God.  It is described in the latter part of Genesis 2 how God removed a rib from Adam and "closed up the place with flesh".  Somehow, God then formed a woman (Eve) using this rib.  It is then explained that it is because of this fact that a man and woman are to be united as husband and wife (see verse 24).

Genesis 3 describes the Fall of Humanity.  

Genesis 4 describes the first biblical record of murder - the story of Cain and Abel.
