Not necessarily, you have to see the chakra problem in an evolutionary point of view: our ancestors lived without things that we couldn't possibly live without. For example, humans can't live without spines but we have ancestors without spines that lived normally.

In this case, it's perfectly possible for humans from Kaguya's time to not have any chakra at all, then adapt to it and, from generations upon generations, the adaptation was so specific that humans no longer could live without chakra (being the only downside Kishimoto speeding up the adaptation process, but wouldn't be the first time he did such)

Maybe I'm overestimating Kishimoto's pool of reference, but it could be a reference to Plato and Aristotle's Great Chain of Being, which has a segment that goes plants-->beasts-->humans (as in, the plant Juubi spawned the Tailed Beasts that are sealed in human Jinchuuriki).

Excuse me, but not only I never came across such statement, Naruto has absolutely nothing to do with the Book of Revelations.

And the God Tree isn't from Adam and Eve, that'd be the Tree of Knowledge. The whole Juubi and Hagoromo tale is a mix between Genesis and Poetic Edda.
