Adam and Eve: Genetic Science Confirms Bible Again
By Bryan Fischer

The Bible and its account of origins is treated with utter contempt by cultural elites, those who look down their noses at the rubes and hayseeds (like me) who place great confidence in the Book.

Well, the elites better hope their peers don’t get their hands on the report about the latest in genetic science. The reason: genetic scientists are telling us now that there is powerful and virtually irrefutable scientific evidence that every human being on earth has descended from a single pair of parents. The Bible, of course, goes science one better, and even gives us the names of our original ancestors, “Adam” and “Eve.”

Note this headline from the Daily Mail, one of the UK’s largest circulation newspapers:

“All humans are descended from just TWO people…” (Emphasis theirs.) And it happened virtually yesterday in evolutionary time, somewhere around 100,000 years ago.

From the first line in the article (emphasis mine throughout): “All modern humans descended from a solitary pair.” From the second paragraph: “Scientists surveyed the genetic ‘bar codes’ of five million animals – including humans – from 100,000 different species and deduced that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race.

Now, to be sure, they are off on their timeline by about 94,000 years. They’ve got it right that there was a “catastrophic event that almost wiped out the human race,” which of course we know is actually a reference to the flood of Noah’s day, though they haven’t figured that part out yet. But give them time. They finally got around to Adam and Eve; they’ll eventually come around on the rest.

Now, these genetic scientists aren’t yahoos from East Pecan Community College. The report comes from “experts” at Rockefeller University and the University of Basel, Mark Stoeckle and David Thaler respectively.

Their findings are so contrary to current evolutionary thought that they found it almost impossible to believe. “This conclusion is very surprising,” said Thaler, “and I fought against it as hard as I could.”

Worse for those still stuck in the bankrupt theory of Darwinianism, the same thing is true of animals, just exactly as the Bible says. In a statement that completely, utterly, and seismically destroys evolution, the scientists conclude that “ninety percent of all animal species alive today come from parents that all began giving birth at roughly the same time, less than 250 thousand years ago.” Well, “at roughly the same time” would be during the six days of creation, as recorded in Genesis 1.

The Daily Mail adds, this “throw into doubt the patterns of human evolution.” No kidding.

This is a shocking, stupendous, mind-blowing departure from the addled thinking of today’s evolutionists, who believe the path to today’s animals began in the ancient slime and somehow all life, through infinitesimal steps, started in the primordial ooze. Nope.

Today’s animal species come from a single pair of ancestors, just like people do. “The research deduced that humans and animals sprang from [a] single pair – as did animals.”

In a commentary published by Fox News, Dr. Michael Guillen calls this “an astonishing discovery:”

“All humans alive today are the offspring of a common father and mother – an Adam and Eve – who walked the planet 100,000 to 200,000 years ago, which by evolutionary standards is like yesterday. Moreover, the same is true of nine out of every 10 animal species, meaning that nearly all of Earth’s creatures living today sprang into being recently from some seminal, Big Bang-like event.”

Hmmm. A “seminal, Big Bang-like event.” Say, perhaps, the creation of everything as recorded in Genesis 1?

Guillen draws two other evolution-shattering conclusions. First, he says, Stoeckle and Thaler’s study “does line up with the Bible…It affirms that we and our fellow creatures on Earth arose from a recent and profound creation event, orchestrated by some unknown mechanism.” (God, maybe??) “Recent and profound creation event” – couldn’t have said it better myself.

Second, he adds, the DNA bar codes reveal that, ”Instead of there being a continuum of animal varieties, as one might expect from millions of years of gradual evolution, creatures fall into very distinct, widely separated populations,” exactly what the Bible says, when 11 times in Genesis 1, we are told that each created living thing reproduced “after its kind.”

It is impossible for there to be a conflict between good theology and good science. You can have a conflict between good theology and bad science, or bad theology and good science, but it is impossible to find a conflict between good theology and good science for the simple reason that God is the author of both.

Bottom line: once again, the best in science confirms the best in theology. Ladies and gentlemen, DO NOT DOUBT THE BOOK.

The very existence of DNA is evidence of God's design. Human DNA is a coil of connected chemicals. Our DNA has 6 BILLION base pairs arranged in precise order. Atheist evolution says this happened one step at a time. The odds of 6 billion pairs arranging themselves in a precise order is something like 1 chance in 1 followed by 230 zeros.
Scientists consider odds of 1 million to 1 as being effectively impossible. The odds of 6 billion base pairs arranging themselves in the correct order is astronmical times 1,000.
God designed our DNA. I have base pairs in different order than yours and that is why we don't look the same and may have different color eyes and hair and may be different heights and may even be different genders.
NOTHING in the universe evolved by chance. God designed it all.

YES YES YES! God designed it ALL!

I felt sad when I heard Stephen Hawking passed away because of his total unbelief in God. I believe when he drew his last breath he was immediately introduced to the one he denied existed.

We cant really know what Hawkings last days or moments were like. There is always the possibility one of the many seeds planted grew in those final moments and he repented.

"The study has been misunderstood by some religious parties who thought it meant that we all came into being in some seminal Big Bang-typed event 100,000 ago, but this isn't what the findings actually suggest.
What Stoeckle and Thaler's findings point to is that our species has to revamp far more often than we thought, and we do so in unison with all animals."

Uh huh. I think it very likely that they know EXACTLY what their findings more than suggest. But to come out and say it would result in being black-listed by their piers and funding sources.

Kind of the same sticky situation those High Priests in the temple were in at the moment of Jesus death on the cross watching the huge thick impossible to rip curtain that closed off the Holy of Holies from view being ripped from top to bottom. Undeniable!
