This is only a theory. There may be some logical errors. If you find one, try to solve it, so WE can build this theory (it might be cool, to see, if it works out ). Also, this theory relies on some parts of the original NGE-anime, but is mainly for the Rebuild.

- Main theory
The theory is about the four Adams. Let's assume the following:
After the second impact has been started and adam woke up, one of the four adams turned into an embryo, which later was gathered by Nerv. But what's about the other three Adams? Thats what i thought about. What if the three other adams scattered themselves around the planet (and the moon)? Let me explain it more detailed:
Adam 1 turned himself into an embryo at the dead sea (southpole). He was later gathered by Nerv.
Adam 1 turned himself into Nebuchadnezzar's Key. Like he is the key to start the real third impact. Because, if all four adams could fuse again, they could form the "real" adam. The light-giant, which could possibly be "god".
Adam 2 "shoot" himself to the moon, using the giant blood stream that fired from the point of the Second Impact up to the white moon. After that, he was later used to "breed" Mark 06 at Tabgha Base. After that, he simply is Mark 06.
Adam 3 (the three-eyed-one):
Adam 3 was somehow used to create Unit 01. As you see at NTI, Unit 01 transforms into the 3-eyed adam.
Adam 4 was somehow used to create Unit 13.
Adam's soul got transfered into Kaworu/Tabris.
That's all, for the moment. Feel free to contribute some more to the theory (i will credit you if i add you into THIS post) =)!
Now, let's look at some proves.
Prove 1 (For: Adam 3):
The 3-eyed Unit 01 at his awakening.
In the picture you can see some red blood. It could be the "wave" that transported Adam 3 there.
Thanks to Arcadia's legacy for adding this prove!
Prove 2 (For: Adam 1 - 2):
As stated by Gendo, the key is used to open the "door". Maybe the Door of Guf is meant? If this is true, it would make sense, because: Every awakened Evangelion opened the Door of Guf and so Adam did.Gendo: Yes, used to open the door to Human Instrumentality... Nebuchadnezzar's Key.
Prove 3 (For: Adam's soul):
Just watch the movies/animes or look at the wiki page of Kawuro/Tabris.
Prove 4 (For: Adam 2):
(Quote from the wiki-page of Mark 06, date: 02.09.15 22:53)Keel Lorenz refers to the Mark 06 as "the true Evangelion", to play a role in fulfilling the covenant with Lilith
That could mean that Mark 06 is the "fusion" of one adam and a clone of lilith (The mask compared to the "normal" body of the Mark 06).
Prove 5 (For: Adam 4):
Unit 13 was able to awaken itself. Maybe it was caused by Kaworu or Shinji, but even if so, it would still be possible, because Nerv was so destroyed that they couldnt clone Adam.
I'm tired now, so as I said earlier: If you find any mistakes, try to fix them if you can (just accept the challenge! ).
So, i hope i didn't missed something.
If you find grammatic mistakes - i'm a german guy so don't judge me hard please! [/list]
