Christians hate it when I say this, but scripture does NOT say that ALL human life came from Adam & Eve. It says that Eve became the mother of all "living." The family tree referred to begins with Adam & ends with Jesus. That's the family talked about. It's clear b/c when you get to the flood & Noah, (which also talks about Nephilim, but that's another story), Noah, of all Adam's descendants was the only who had kept his blood line pure but not intermingling with other humans outside his family tree (or with the Nephilin).
People just don't get that the bible is not the story of ALL human kind. It's about family line from YHWH's creation of Adam to final Holy Spirit begetting Jesus. The people in between were not all pure blooded. Those interracial marriages (from people anathema to Israelites) are also noted in Old Testament.
