You might say Adam and Eve were the first refugees.
And you might say that their specific act of rebellion changed God’s creation. The earth became abnormal.
All because Adam and Eve sinned in disobeying God.
Other less tangible consequences resulted form this sin. Relationships were damaged. Separations occurred, the major one being between God and Man. They no longer had perfect communion.
Man’s purpose of existence---to love God with all his heart, soul and mind, to be in relationship with God Himself---was damaged. Fulfilling His purpose would forevermore be a challenge.
Other separations also occurred. Man, now knowing fear, was separated from himself. This separation altered his perspective and world-view, and psychological problems resulted. He was also separated form others, a separation first seen when Adam and Eve passed the blame between each other, the Serpent and God after their disobedience. Another separation occurred between man and nature. Man, losing his full dominion, lost his connection to the land. Greed replaced stewardship.
One thing was not lost. Adam and Eve, twisted, broken and abnormal as they became, maintained their humanity. Mankind still stood in the image of God. They were still the image-bearer of God. Mankind was fallen, but mankind was still significant.
This significance showed up when God evicted the couple from Eden. Remember those itchy fig leaf aprons? God replaced them with a coat of animal skins. God replaced their flimsy covering with a covering of His own.
Could this indicate that Adam and Eve’s coverings weren’t sufficient to stand before God in? That perhaps they needed a covering from God, a specific covering that required sacrifice and death, a covering not provided by man, but by God? Were these new coverings a sign of God’s compassion and mercy in the presence of man’s sin?
Today the world is in a shambles.
