Americans Agonise About Adam

Postby Brian Jordan » Fri Nov 22, 2013 1:34 pm

So it says here. It seems some have been upset by the idea that there could not have been a single genetic Adam and Eve couple. While it doesn't say so, the same findings rule out the Noachian population bottleneck. After a discussion of American YECism and rejection by young Americans, it ends:
Biologos, an evolutionary creation group that Mr Collins set up in 2007, calls this a moment to match Galileo’s trial for insisting that the Earth circles the sun.

Academic papers on Adam are flying. Perhaps a dozen Adam books are out or due out soon. Baltimore’s packed Adam session turned professors away at the door. This is a dispute between conservative Christians, not an outbreak of soggy, believe-what-you-like European deism. Much is at stake. Denying science is a bad habit among conservatives of all stripes: Paul Broun, a Georgia Republican who sits on the House science committee (and who wants to run for the Senate), says evolution is a lie “straight from the pit of hell”. That’s pandering, not piety.

Ken Ham has a solution to this problem. So does Ray Comfort.

Read Mr Ham's books. Watch Mr Comfort's video.

More indoctrination is the answer to the problem of young Americans either leaving churches or staying but compromising their understandings of scripture and their faith with scientific discoveries about the past.
