But now some conservative scholars are saying publicly that they can no longer believe the Genesis account.
Asked how likely it is that we all descended from Adam and Eve, Dennis Venema, a biologist at Trinity Western University, replies: “That would be against all the genomic evidence that we’ve assembled over the last 20 years, so not likely at all.” Venema says there is no way we can be traced back to a single couple.
And if they do that, they will lose whatever intellectual currency or respectability they have.”…
Story of Adam and Eve Genesis -27 begins the story of Adam and Eve. The best-known system based on Biblical data is that of James Ussher. Some have suggested God is talking to His angels, however, this is in direct contradiction to the Bible. Secondly, God appears to create man and woman simultaneously. And now the Lord God has sent Me, and His Spirit." Thus, Adam was crafted by the fullness of the Triune Godhead, and it was in this fashion man was made in the image of God.
According to the Bible (Genesis 2:7), this is how humanity began: “The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” God then called the man Adam, and later created Eve from Adam’s rib.(Lk ) Based on this factor and many others, as I demonstrate in many books and articles, may we not also conclude, therefore, that Jesus is likewise fictional?There is a grace-saving “out” for Christians and other religionists who would like to continue enjoying the human cultural artifacts of religion and mythology: It is called the “mythicist position” or “mythicism.” In my book Mythicism represents the perspective that many gods, goddesses and other heroes and legendary figures said to possess extraordinary and/or supernatural attributes are not “real people” but may in fact be mythological characters.He says with the mapping of the human genome, it’s clear that modern humans emerged from other primates as a large population — long before the Genesis time frame of a few thousand years ago.And given the genetic variation of people today, he says scientists can’t get that population size below 10,000 people at any time in our evolutionary history.
