Geneticist Says Evidence Confirms Biblical Adam and Eve

Earth In Peril - Public Domain

A respected molecular geneticist explores the historicity of Adam and Eve in a newly-released documentary, explaining that modern findings in the field of genetics confirm the Bible’s teachings that all humans descended from an original couple created by God.

Dr. Georgia Purdom earned a Ph.D. in molecular genetics from Ohio State University and has published papers in a number of scientific journals, including the Journal of Neuroscience and the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. Formerly a biology professor, Purdom is now a researcher and speaker for the Christian apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis (AiG).

  1. I suggest that mankind, specifically us, has to be at least 20-30,000 years old based on history.
    India has such documentation.
    China can date things fairly accurately for at least 4,500 years.
    The American Indians are dated at least 10,000 years ago coming to North America. The mystery being a minor change in the shape of an eyelid in the existing Mongolian race to this day. Forensic science does have documentation of physical differences between races. The revolution here is there are no pure races period. So intermixture between various racial groups makes it all a bit of reaching to determine races. The Indian version of Mongolian does not have the eyelid change. So the question there is when did the racial characteristics of groups from various climates around the planet occur?
    My own suspicion is that there is a lot more time past than anyone suspects. That mankind probably started about 200-225,000 years ago.
    Was it with Adam and then Eve?
    According to Genesis, Eve was cloned from Adam’s genetic material in a rib. It fails to explain what happened to the original female made for Adam as they were created male and female from the beginning. Jewish mythology refers to a person that ran away from Adam and was accursed for doing so. Meaning her children all died.
    I suggest we have a lot of time before the Great Flood that is unaccounted for.
    The flood referred to might have occurred about 11-13,000 years ago.
    The Bible does say that pre-flood people lived about 900 years and had many children.
    Then further on past the flood we have people living 125 years? Well in today’s world 100 is fairly rare. Social Security at 66 means the government figured we would all die shortly after 66. In some cases they were right.
    Sounds like pre-flood there were a whole lot of people on the planet. I get a feeling there might have been billions of people pre-flood.
    Which means the potential genecide of all those people occurred with the flood.
    Then Noah and family started it up all over again. This time with extremely shortened lifespans.
    Legend has it that he had 3 boys who started the three races.
    I think that is probably not true.
    IF we had lived 900 years, then someone would have lived that long after the flood. Unless conditions changed to prevent it.
    Which means a throwback could live that long today.
    I suggest that radiation is the key. That we have a much less protective atmosphere now than then.
    After the flood people lived shorter lives because they aged faster.
    This is all speculation. Just like the “DNA Evidence” is speculation at this point.
