Pell says Adam and Eve didn't exist

In comments that may shock some staunch Catholics, Cardinal George Pell has described the biblical story of Adam and Eve as a myth.

He appeared alongside renowned evolutionary biologist and atheist, Professor Richard Dawkins, on the ABC's Q&A program last night.

I wonder if there are actual people, you know "grown ups" that would be surprised by this statement? not *act surprised* but actually be surprised.

Of course Adam and Eve as true father and mother of the human race is false. It's pretty much understood by science that the homo sapien population never dipped below 2,000 at any given time. We can tell this based on our mapped genome. What the bible describes seems more like a genetic experimentation lab. Adam, Lillith and Eve were lab rats, but there were already thousands upon thousands of humans out there in the world at the time and probably Neanderthals as well. Part of me wonders if the garden of eden was actually intended to get Neanderthals to breed with homo sapiens to increase genetic diversity.

Eve's name would be Chavah, giver of life, now shekinah/holy spirit is also giver of life and comforter, also god is giver of life.

There had to be a first someone somewhere

Nope. There certainly does not have to be a first someone. There was a species or group of someones that slowly changed over millions of years into what modern humans look like today. It is impossible to account for racial diversity and other things, in a simple adam and eve scenario 10,000 years ago or whatever.

I'd put their credentials and colleges up against anyone else's.

And I'd still like to see the experiments they have done that suggest new information is never added to DNA. Stop procrastinating and back up the claim. All the actual science experiments I have seen on mutation rates show that is not true.

I know many Christians who are in agreement.

I bet they all have different interpretations on at least one thing in the bible.

All Christians don't have to agree on everything to be Christians...
...they only have to agree on one thing, that Jesus was divine, became human, died and was resurrected...
...everything else is up for discussion and usually is.
