The Diaries of Eve and Adam (Eve the World's First Scientist)

I just finished reading the personal diaries of Eve and Adam - you know, the original humans.  It would appear that Mark Twain discovered the original manuscripts and succeeded to translate the ancient hieroglyphs somehow (perhaps he used a top hat) and published them to the world.  I will be…
