Christians point to genetics breakthroughs to show Adam and Eve are not incompatible with evolution | Fox News

Desperation must reign among (conservative) Christians if the take the genetics markers labelled ‘Adam’ and ‘Eve’. The two are not even synchronous, and point to the complexity of human evolution, still unresolved and confounded with its myths of natural selection.

Many Christians have rejected the scientific theory of evolution in part because they think it rules out the existence of a historical Adam and Eve. Yet some scientists and theologians argue that recent breakthroughs in genetics make a historical Adam and Eve compatible with evolution, and that this development may help bridge what many see as a conflict between faith and science.

CRISPR Madness: Welcome to the Age of Genetic Chaos 

The Nobel prize in chemistry awarded last year to the biochemists Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier for the genetic modification technique called CRISPR cemented the popular idea that a new era of precision manipulation of hereditary material had arrived. The award came on the heels of the unauthorized use of the technique by the scientist More
