The earth is a rich, dark substance, and from it our first parents were taken.

The book of Enoch seems to indicate that the world before Noah's flood was a much darker place, as far as melanin is concerned. While The Book of Enoch is not considered canon (official scripture), it was very important to the ancient Hebrews.
