The Biblical account of Adam and Eve confirmed by Modern-day DNA research.
Dr. Georgia Purdom, is a molecular geneticist who has just recently released a documentary which is entitled “The Genetics of Adam and Eve.” In this documentary she has given explanation about her findings related to the First Couple’s DNA. Even so, Dr. Georgia Purdom backs up her arguments with solid scientific support in her documentary.
Focussing merely on the DNA, men and women can trace their genetic roots back to a man (Biblical Adam) and woman (Biblical Eve). Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson has also carried out research and his findings invalidate the evolutionary timescale. He further wrote that his research hits upon startling discovery that all men can trace their genetic lineage to a single man who lived 135,000 years ago, a “Genetic Adam.”
Evolutionists, on the othe hand believe that: “All living forms come from previous living forms. Therefore, all present forms of life arose from ancestral forms that were different. Birds arose from non birds and humans from non humans.”
In support of the findings of Dr. Georgia Purdom and Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson’s findings; Tia Ghose from LiveScience says, “The Y chromosome is passed down identically from father to son, so mutations, or point changes, in the male sex chromosome can trace the male line back to the father of all humans.
“By contrast, DNA from the mitochondria, the energy powerhouse of the cell, is carried inside the egg, so only women pass it on to their children. The DNA hidden inside mitochondria, therefore, can reveal the maternal lineage to an ancient Eve.”
Dr. Georgia in an interview with Christian News Network laid great stress on the fact that historic existence of Adam and Eve is very significant in people’s understanding of the Gospel.
During her interview she said, “One of the most compelling genetic evidences for an original human couple created by God is mitochondrial DNA research done by creation geneticist, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson. He clearly shows that the common human female ancestor of us all (biblical Eve) lived within the biblical timeframe of several thousand years ago.”
These findings evidently cancel out what evolutionists have long been telling people, she asserted. Evolutionists have been saying that there is no God who created mankind since people only evolved from monkeys.
“This female ancestor could not have lived 100,000 or more years ago as the evolutionists claim,” she said. “In addition, genetics clearly shows that human and chimps do not share a common ancestor. There are many, many differences in their DNA that completely undermine the possibility of shared ancestry only a few million years ago.”
Dr. Georgia Purdom laid great stress on the need for Christians to be aware of this new scientific progress, saying: “Christians should be aware of the scientific proof for creation because Genesis is the most hotly debated book among evangelical Christians. We need to show people that science supports and confirms the history presented in Genesis.”
“We need the good news, grace and life, which is found in the death and resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus Christ is the solution to the problem of evil that began in Genesis 3. Paul made this connection very clear in Romans 5 and 1 Corinthians 15,” she said.
