There was nothing particularly special about that point.
So, as important as Adam and Eve are, we mustn’t think that the doctrine of original sin is inherent to Christianity because it is just not.
Further, looking at different genes, we find that they trace back to different times in our past.
Mitochondrial DNA points to the genes in that organelle tracing back to a single female ancestor who lived about 140,000 years ago, All right.
That would be one of the main reasons that I think one ought to be a Christian.
That lies at the very heart of the Christian religion, much more centrally than does the historicity of Adam and Eve.
Again, we just don’t know that these mutation rates have been constant over all of these thousands of years.
Before we conclude that the sky is falling, the sky is falling, it isn’t true that the whole story of human sin and redemption falls to pieces if you deny the historical Adam and Eve.
