The biblical presentation concerns not simply the story in Genesis and the biblical passages that refer . . . → Read More: Adam and Eve as Historical People, and Why It Matters

Genesis and the Genome: Genomics Evidence for Human-Ape Common Ancestry and Ancestral Hominid Population Sizes

by Dennis R. Venema 

The relatively new and rapidly expanding field of comparative genomics provides a wealth of data useful for testing the hypothesis that humans and other forms of life share common ancestry. Numerous independent lines of genomics evidence strongly support the hypothesis that our species shares a common ancestor with other primates. Additional lines of evidence . . . → Read More: Genesis and the Genome: Genomics Evidence for Human-Ape Common Ancestry and Ancestral Hominid Population Sizes

After Adam: Reading Genesis in an Age of Evolutionary Science

by Daniel C. Harlow

Recent research in molecular biology, primatology, sociobiology, and phylogenetics indicates that the species Homo sapiens cannot be traced back to a single pair of individuals, and that the earliest human beings did not come on the scene in anything like paradisal physical or moral conditions. It is therefore difficult to read Genesis 1–3 as . . . → Read More: After Adam: Reading Genesis in an Age of Evolutionary Science

Recent Genetic Science and Christian Theology on Human Origins: An “Aesthetic Supralapsarianism”

by John R. Schneider

Recent genomic science strongly supports the theory of common ancestry. To classical Protestants, particularly, this theory seems incompatible with Scripture, most especially with the “historical Fall,” which Protestants presume to be manifestly biblical and so have cemented it securely into their confessions and theology as a whole. Nevertheless, John Schneider proposes that it . . . → Read More: Recent Genetic Science and Christian Theology on Human Origins: An “Aesthetic Supralapsarianism”
