Scientists Trace Humanity Back to Single ‘Adam’ and ‘Eve’, Strengthening Creation Story

God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:26-27 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation

 Yahweh-God created mankind on the Sixth day of Creation six thousand years ago, not hundreds of thousands of years ago!

Following the recent trend of congruence between science and Bible in different fields, fresh genetic research suggests that all females are descended from a single female and all males from a single male – corresponding with the Biblical account of Adam and Eve.

For many years the multiregional hypothesis, suggesting multiple origins for humanity, was predominant in genetic research. But new studies suggest that all of humanity has a common origin.

“The Torah has always claimed one common ancestor to all humanity as well as creation ex-nilo,” Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman told Breaking Israel News in response to the finding. “Recent discoveries in these fields seem to confirm these truths.”

The theory was first developed in 1987, when leading science journal Nature published a study investigating humanity’s origins. The study researched mitochondrial DNA, which is passed down from mother to both daughter and son. Because mitochondrial DNA is only passed on by the mother and never the father, it reveals maternal lineage.

Knowing this, the researchers were able to determine that every human being alive today can trace their ancestry back to a single woman now referred to as “Mitochondrial Eve.”  The original research placed Eve somewhere in East Africa between 140,000 and 200,000 years ago. More recent research suggests she may have lived less than 100,000 years ago.

The study was quickly attacked by other researchers, but subsequent studies confirmed the original findings and the theory is now generally accepted in the scientific community.

Professor Karl Skorecki, an expert on DNA and the discoverer of the “Cohen Gene”, which identifies members of the Jewish priestly caste through genetic testing, explained to Breaking Israel News  how the findings harmonize with the Biblical account.

“Analysis of mitochondrial DNA of all contemporary humans sampled today indicates that all of the different variations in the sequence of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) trace back, or converge to an original sequence in a given woman,” he explained.

“That woman, Mitochondrial Eve, transmitted her mtDNA sequence to her offspring, and over generations slight variations in sequence occurred and accumulated, leading to the diversity of existent sequences in men and women populating the earth today.”

Professor Skorecki said that while the findings confirm a single mother to all humanity, they do not suggest she was the only woman of her time. But this, he pointed out, is harmonious with the Bible, which identifies other human populations at the time of Eve.

Ancestral Adam was found in 1995, when a separate study on male ancestry examined the Y-chromosome, passed directly from father to son. Science published the results of a study in which a segment of the Y-chromosome from 38 men from different ethnic groups were analyzed for variation.

Their conclusion was that every man alive today actually descended from a single man whom scientists now refer to as “Y-Chromosomal Adam.”

“The last fifty years of science, especially in the fields of cosmology and quantum physics, have brought Torah and science together as never before,” Rabbi Trugman noted. “Perhaps now the same will occur within anthropology and Torah.”

“Although the Torah is not a science, history, anthropology, philosophy, or cosmology book in the common sense, it is actually all of these and much more,” he added.

The first studies concluded that “Eve” lived much later than “Adam” – some 140,000 years later. But recent studies indicate that Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosomal Adam may indeed have lived around the same time.

End-times expert Rabbi Pinchas Winston took the comparison even further than confirming the Biblical account, explaining how he sees the confluence between the scientific view of Eve and the Biblical account as a signal of redemption.

“During the exile there was great Hester Panim – a hiding of God’s face. As a result the Bible became relegated to the back of man’s consciousness,” he said. “At the same time, science at first seemed to diverge from religion.

“But since the Torah is the basic fabric of reality it cannot be hidden forever. As the redemption moves forward and the Jews return home, the Bible is coming back to the forefront of man’s consciousness. Along with this we see a growing harmony between science and the Bible. We have even gotten the point where science is now borrowing concepts from the Bible – such as with Mitochondrial Eve.” (Click to Source)

Why Giants?


Why Giants?

It was the purpose of Satan and his fallen angels to corrupt the human race and thereby do away with pure Adamite stock through whom the seed of the woman should come. This would avert their own doom and make it possible for Satan and his kingdom to keep control of the planet earth indefinitely. It was said to Adam and Eve that the seed of the woman should defeat Satan and restore man’s dominion.

Gen. 3:15
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The only way then for Satan to avoid this predicted defeat was to corrupt the pure Adamite line so that the coming of the seed of the woman into the world would be make impossible. This, he tried to accomplish by sending some of his fallen angels to marry the daughters of men as in,

Gen. 6:1-4
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they choose.
And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

. . .and producing the giant nations through them.

There are two such eruptions of fallen angels taught in Gen. 6:4: There were giants in the earth in those days (before the flood); and also after that (after the flood), when the sons of God (fallen angels) came in unto the daughters of men (any daughters of men — Cain, Seth and others), and they bare children to them (to the angels).

Satan almost succeeded in his plan during the first eruption, for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth; and of all the multitudes Noah and his sons were the only pure Adamites left to be preserved by the ark. (Click to Article)

Lake Missoula Creation Conference Coming to Missoula


By Mike Mueller, Conference Director

Why is a Creation Conference Important? Why does it Matter?

The debate is ongoing: did the world evolve or was it created? If it was created, did it take billions of years or was it made by God in six 24-hour days? Was there a global flood? How does the newest scientific evidence match up with biblical accounts? Where does Darwin fit into the picture? Who is telling the truth? A “Science and the Bible” conference will address these questions and more. Regardless of your opinions on the subject, this conference should be interesting and challenging to your thinking.

We all look at the world through a pair of glasses (our personal preconceptions) which affect how we interpret the world around us and how we make decisions about what to believe, who to follow, where to put our faith, or how to develop our opinions in life. Our worldviews can be naturalistic, humanistic, biblical, or a combination. Our starting point can greatly influence our ongoing interpretations of evidence. Many Americans used to have as their foundation a biblical worldview, but that has changed to a more naturalistic or humanistic approach to life. Many now believe current and troubling social issues are symptoms of this foundational change. Recent observational science and discovery seems to support a creator and point us back to the authority of the Holy Bible. The Bible has had more impact around the world than any other book ever written. The Bible contains an ancient account of historical science.

Today through advances in technology, science, computers, microscopes, telescopes, geology, astronomy, medicine, and in general because of the overwhelming increase of available information and knowledge, biblical answers seem reasonable for many of the most common questions about our origins. Have these questions already been answered? Is the science of origins as taught in the schools factual? Has science disproven the Bible? A number of scientists are finding reasons to answer, “No.” New scientific evidence can shed light on the age of the earth and universe, creation, and dinosaurs. This new evidence does not have widespread coverage, so the purpose of this conference is to make it available for consideration. Some evidence seems to indicate a younger earth than has previously been taught, and it is very compelling. New evidence seems to support the creation week as written in Genesis 1 and Exodus 20:11.

The city walls of Jerusalem were being rebuilt but Nehemiah saw sin, bondage
and discouragement beginning to captivate the hearts of the people.

“As soon as it began to grow dark . . . I commanded that the doors should be
shut and gave orders that they should not be opened until after the Sabbath”
(Nehemiah 13:19, ESV).

In this passage Nehemiah is a type of the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of God is
saying, “I know your propensity, I know the pulls. I know the temptation will
be to take the Sabbath and make it unholy . . . and you will forget Me.” So
even before it was dark, Nehemiah closed the gates.

Your heavenly Father is on the move in your life to solve your problem even
before you know you have a problem. God is on the move on your behalf even
before the sin sets in, even before it takes hold. God is working! The old
Puritans called this a prevenient grace—grace at work before the temptation
comes. Even before Adam and Eve got out of the Garden, even before sin began to
take hold in the fruit, God said to the serpent, “The Son (He was talking of
His Son, Christ Jesus) will crush your head” (Genesis 3:15, paraphrase mine).
After deceiving Adam and Eve, before Satan slithered out and began to move
throughout the whole world to deceive the sons of Adam and Eve, God said, “I
have a plan in action.”

This is not God standing on the sidelines saying, “If you fall into that sin,
come to Me and repent and I will forgive you again.” Yes, He does that, but it
is so much more than that. God is working on your behalf even before that
temptation ever comes to you, building up a wall in your life. He is building
up grace and maturity in you, leading you through the spiritual process of your
growing to where you are strengthened—line upon line, precept upon precept.

God is already planning for your victory!
