We have a full “Truth Revolution” show on this topic. To hear the 30-minute show go here.
Dave: Christians contend that God created Adam and Eve – and that all other humans came from those two.
Jeff: But some have challenged that idea. They say that because of the genetic diversity we see in homo sapiens, humanity had to of come from a group – probably a couple thousand people.
Dave: And this doesn’t mean, “Wow, we’ve got four different hair colors, we couldn’t have come from just two people!”
Jeff: No. It’s the science of our cells – DNA sequencing.
Dave: So what’s the deal? Did we come from two people, or a thousand?
Jeff: Dr. Fuz Rana at reasons.org has made a point that I love – “when we claim, based on DNA, that we couldn’t have come from just 2 ppl – we are assuming that God made Adam and Eve genetically identical.
Dave: Ah! But he didn’t necessarily do that.
Jeff: There’s no reason to believe he did that.
Dave: So practically speaking, the first humans could’ve looked like an interracial couple.
Jeff: Did that just blow your mind? It actually makes sense that God would create with genetic diversity.
