    Default Qué significa to know from Adam?

    Hi!
    I found this phrase but I didn't get its full meaning.

    The context doesn't help much either: She doesn't know me from Adam.

    Thanks in advance!

    It's a way of saying that she doesn't know you at all. If you and Adam (of Adam and Eve I suppose?) we're standing next to each other, she still wouldn't even know which one was you. She has no idea who you are.

    Thanks again! The link was fine but Maria's explanation helped me to understand the idea conveyed by the expression.
    Thank you all!
