Physical anthropology has seen greater advance during the past five years than it has during the previous 500 years. For the first time a detailed comparison can be made between the Bible’s claims about human origins and the scientific evidence. Genetic breakthroughs show that neither the human species nor the Neanderthals have experienced significant evolution. These discoveries also show that the human race is traceable to a single mitochondrial-DNA “Eve” and a single Y-chromosome “Adam” from a single location that corresponds in time to the biblical date for Adam and Eve. This date is also consistent with cultural “big bangs” that demonstrate that humanity possesses unique spiritual characteristics. The later chapters of Genesis answer the younger-Adam paradox currently plaguing modern human genetics research.
