Some folks don't care whether "Adam" is real or not.
Some people claim "Adam" to be a real man whose birthdate can be deduced from biblical texts.
Some claim "Adham" to be a metaphor for the father of the first law-giver, Set/Seth...while others view "Adam" as the first self-aware hominid.
No one need prove anything to you. It is you who needs to decide if you give any credence to such claims of a 77th grandfather. If you lend no credence to the assertion, then ignore it...there are others who deem it critically important.
Descent from antiquity is a very difficult thing to prove without documentation...especially that far back :)
Hope that helps.

When I first joined Geni I was thrilled that I could go back to Adam and Eve, however I don't know why but I cannot get back to him anymore. I notice all my cousins can but obviously somehow or other this information has changed. I really would like to know why. I agree that to some people this is insignificant information.
Any suggestions would be great.
There is Link You can follow the path:
I'm "quite close" to this same person
The name Adam is given to the first man of the human family on this earth as cited in the account of the creation in the books of Genesis, Moses, and Abraham, and in many instances in the New Testament, Book of Mormon, ad Doctrineand Covenants. From these scriptures we learn that Adam is the fathr and patriarch of the human race on the earth.The aggregate of the scriptures certifies that his transgression in the garden of Eden, although designated as a "fall," was neccessary to the advancement and spiritual progress of humanity on earth, and Adam rightly should be honored, not denigreated. Adam is the Ancient of Days and is also known as Michael. He is the archangel and will come again to the earth in power a glory as the partriarch of the human faimly, preparatory to the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Adam is my 111 great grand father
Gaia Gea Γαα Gaĩa Maa Earth . . is my 106th great grandmother.
Hotepsekhemwy (Boethos) Bedjau, Pharoah of Egypt is my 130th great grandfather. (older than Adam !!)
Gaia Gea Γαα Gaĩa Maa Earth . . is Adam / אדם / آدم .'s fifth great granddaughter's husband's great granddaughter's husband's nephew's wife's husband's mother.
Adam / אדם / آدم . is Hotepsekhemwy (Boethos) Bedjau, Pharoah of Egypt's wife's fourth great aunt's husband's grandfather's wife's fifth great grandfather.
Etc .. Only geni can do that ! and I love it !!
And we can discover relation like the following one (read the about section of the profile):
As a french singer, Maxime Leforestier songs:
"On choisit pas ses parents,
on choisit pas sa famille
On choisit pas non plus
les trottoirs de Manille
De Paris ou d'Alger
Pour apprendre à marcher
Etre né quelque part
Etre né quelque part
c'est toujours un hasard"
This give in english (as my poor one can do):
"One don't choose his parents,
One don't choose his family
One don't choose the sidewalks of Manila
Of Paris or Algiers, To learn to walk.
Been born in someplace,
Been born in someplace,
It is always by chance..."
Lucy is somehow my 120 000 Great Mother !! :-)))) And not only mine !!
I know that every Human don't agree with the evolution theory .. this is not the subject of my message .. just some fun in this furious world ..
Can't find her on Geni ...
Let's create her profile:
First Name: Lucy
Born circa - 3000020
Death circa - 3000000
Best regards to all !!
@ Samuel: I am with you all the way! I do believe 100% in evolution! I also think that if Geni will tolerate BIBLICAL ADAM & EVE, Geni should also tolerate SCIENTIFIC ADAM (over 50,000 years ago) and EVE (over 120,000 years ago). My comment is not to mean that I don't believe in BIBLICAL personalities but I can emphatically state that BIBLICAL ADAM & EVE were not the very first humans on our planet!
im ok with the biblical adam being the first hebrew/jew/whatever but not the first human. it says in Genesis 4:17 "And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch." you dont build a city with 3 people....
My experience is that my connection to Adam varies significantly over time. The current connection runs through a (documented) Norwegian pastor who went by "the Italian" (Francisco Florentius), where Geni ties him to an English noble family - I still haven't found evidence of that, but know there are articles written about him that I haven't read.
A few months ago I had a connection that ran through the Viking legendary kings, of about the same length - I guess this linkage is "hotter" than that one.
Adam / אדם / آدم . is your fourth cousin's wife's 111th great grandfather.
I find one relative (at least one) who is direct descendant of Adam (and many other three roots)
Geni quite shortly "forget" my connection to Adam and I have to "rebuild" this path. And every time I recreate thye path - I get different path. One saved path was ... 85th great grandfather and now is 111th
BUt all this reading and research are very exiting
