How many generations are we presently removed from Adam and Eve?

“Generations” is not a very precise measurement going that far back, since someone might marry their fourth cousin once removed and therefore how many generations it’s been depends on which path you take. Basing it on “X kids per couple on average” (2 would just be replacement rate, meaning constant population, so not very viable) is also not very helpful, as things like wars, famines, and epidemics can cause things to vary widely over time.

That said, we may be able to get some sort of rough idea:

Going through the Bible, Noah was the 10th generation from Adam (counting Adam), and Abraham was the 10th from Shem (Noah’s son), so Abraham was the 20th. Tracing down the line leading to and through the kings of Judea, we get Isaac, Jacob, Judah, Peretz, Hezron makes 15. Ram, Aminadav, Nachshon, Salmah, Boaz makes 20. Oved, Jesse, David, Solomon, Rechabam makes 25. Abiam, Asa, Jehoshaphat, Joram, Joachaz make 30. Joash, Amatziah, Uziah, Jotham, Ahaz make 35. Hezekiah, Menashe, Amon, Josiah, Zedekiah make 40.

This is really as far as we can get; Zedekiah was the last king of the Davidic dynasty, so past that we need something else. However, the dynasty was ended by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II, so let’s jump to that lineage (here I’m using Wikipedia); jumping contemporaries like this may mess up the count somewhat as well (as I said, this is just a rough idea).

Nebuchadnezzar’s son-in-law (and his son’s successor) was Neriglissar, so that’s 41. Labashi-Marduk is 42, Nabonidus is 43; his son Belshazzar was effectively king when Babylonia was conquered by Cyrus the Great (44).

Cyrus’ son Bardiya had his throne usurped, and it ended up in the hands of Darius I (45). Xerxes I and Artexerxes I bring it to 47. After some succession conflicts, we end up with Darius II (48), whose grandson Darius III lost to Alexander the Great (50).

Alexander’s kingdom was taken over by the Diadochi; following the Ptolemaic dynasty, we have Ptolemy I (still 50, as he was a contemporary of Alexander); from there to Ptolemy V, it’s a straight lineage, so that gives us 54. Ptolemy V was the father not only of VI, but also of VIII; he was the father of Ptolemy IX, who was the father of Ptolemy XII, bringing us to 57. His daughter was Cleopatra, who was a contemporary of Julius Caesar (58).

At this point, things get even messier, due to a lot of non-dynastic succession in the Roman empire; you might want to ask Quora how many generations removed we are from Julius Caesar (you’re more likely to get a useful answer that way), and add 58. Or ask from Nebuchadnezzar II and add 40.
