Did Adam and Eve Really Exist? A Review – Reformation2

I don’t care about the ecclesiastical aspects of this issue which are part of Belcher’s review, but it has some other interesting points to make about the historicity of Adam and Eve.

  1. That any sane, rational human being in this century could still believe in the “historicity” of Adam and Eve boggles the mind. You have to be willfully ignorant of virtually every major branch of science to believe that. Of course, without Adam and Eve, a talking snake, and a magic apple, the entire edifice of “original sin” collapses. As does Christianity. I think the historical Jesus would be gobsmacked to see what Christianity has become.

    1. It is more detrimental to be willfully ignorant of the historical Jesus – the most righteous human who ever lived – than to be willfully ignorant of science. A person ignorant of science can still know how to find the light switch in a room and flip it on. A person willfully ignorant of Jesus does not know just how good God really is.
