    Crisis Magazine ^ | November 24, 2014 | DENNIS BONNETTE
    Pure myth! That is today’s typical view of a literal Adam and Eve. Yet, contrary to current skepticism, a real Adam and Eve remain credible—both in terms of Catholic doctrine and sound natural science.By calling the Genesis story a “myth,” people avoid saying it is mere “fantasy,” that is, with no foundation in reality at all. While rejecting a literal first pair of human parents for all mankind, they hope to retain some “deeper” truth about an original “sinful human condition,” a “mythic” meaning. They think that the latest findings in paleoanthropology and genetics render a literal pair of...

    In yesterdays blog post, I sought to explore the details Original Sin and to convey that there are subtleties and stages to the sin that have something to teach us. The sin was more than eating a piece of fruit, there were things that led up to it, both externally and internally, which the text reveals.In yesterdays post I also mentioned that it was worth exploring how the sacred text speaks of the Sin of Adam, and differentiates it to some extent from the sin that Eve commits. In fact, Original Sin, biblically, is properly denoted as the sin of...

    WASHINGTON, December 20, 2013 Federal employees are wondering whether the President will close the government on Christmas Eve. The order to close the government for Christmas Eve 2012 came on December 21, 2012. According to Government Executive, Obama gave federal employees a half day on Christmas Eve in 2009, when it fell on a Thursday and Christmas on a Friday. He did not order any extra holiday time in 2010 or 2011. **SNIP** As of the publication of this article, the White House has not given any indication about Christmas Eve closures.

    The Book of Genesis puts Adam and Eve together in the Garden of Eden, but geneticists version of the duo the ancestors to whom the Y chromosomes and mitochondrial DNA of todays humans can be traced were thought to have lived tens of thousands of years apart. Now, two major studies of modern humans Y chromosomes suggest that Y-chromosome Adam and mitochondrial Eve may have lived around the same time after all. When the overall population size does not change (as is likely to have happened for long periods of human history), men have, on average, just one...
  • Eve; The Mother of All Living...Genesis 3 pt 14

    And Adam called his wifes name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.(Genesis 3:20)Genesis three is a primal chapter of scripture. It is essential to any true understanding of the plight of man, death in the world, the nature of sin, Satans wiles, and most importantly, Gods salvation. Every detail of this foundational chapter is set in place by the Holy Spirit of God, that we might benefit by this unique revelation of why the world is as it is. Therefore the naming of Eve, who up to this point is referred to as Ishah, (the woman), is...

  • The Enmity Between The Serpent And The Woman...Genesis 3 pt9

    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.(Genesis 3:15)The gloom of judgment and wrath at the sinners in the garden, has been penetrated by this mysterious pronouncement of God, addressed to the serpent, and not to the guilty man and woman who had already refused accountability to God. Adam and Eve overhear in the sentence passed upon the serpent, the possibility of a reversal. Evidently even in judgment, the Lord remembers mercy to the fallen couple, for the woman shall...

    Our ancestors bred with other species in the Homo genus, according to a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences1. The authors say that up to 2% of the genomes of some modern African populations may originally come from a closely related species. Palaeontologists have long wondered whether modern humans came from a single, genetically isolated population of hominins or whether we are a genetic mix of various hominin species. Last year, an analysis comparing the Neanderthal genome sequence to that of modern H. sapiens showed that some interbreeding did take place between the two...

    Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?( Genesis 3:1-2)The Angel approached the couple in the garden very calmly, and in an attractive form. Eve, has God really forbidden you to eat of all of the trees of the garden? By exaggerating the prohibition placed upon the couple, the serpent was probing, looking for any indication of a rift between they and God. And the woman said unto the serpent,...

    When the phrase 'Black History' is mentioned, names that immediately come to mind for most are Dr. King, Rosa Parks or Malcolm X. It's been argued Black History continues to be made daily in 2008 given the ever growing possibility that Barack Obama could become the Democratic nominee and perhaps President of the United States. But are Americans too narrowly focusing the roles blacks played in history to just the 19th and 20th centuries?

Man is very egotistical, lazy, and even slovenly in his personal grooming. However, Man has a strong back and will be helpful in carrying burdens. Eve was not thrilled about this. God remonstrated with her, telling her, Its better than a sharp stick in the eye. God then told Eve, I will let you have Man, but you must allow him to believe I created him...

  • Feliz Ao Nuevo, Mi Colombia Querida

    Leftist militants ushered in the new year in Colombia in true form: Members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) murdered 17 peasants, including 6 women and 4 children, who were gathered to celebrate New Years Eve. When I say true form, I mean FARC was practicing the art that the extreme left has mastered, perhaps invented: terrorism. On this New Years Eve, the FARC was proving it believes the end justifies the means, as it is the grotesque, disfigured child of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and, yes, even Hitler -- remember, he was a National Socialist (Nazi). FARC is...

    All Saints and All Souls FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS What is the origin of All Saints and All Souls Day. Are they linked with paganism and Halloween? Both the Feast of All Saints and the Feast of All Souls evolved in the life of the Church independently of paganism and Halloween. However, elements of pagan practices were perhaps baptized by some cultures or attached themselves to the celebration of All Saints and All Souls. Let us first address the Feast of All Saints. The exact origins of this celebration are uncertain, although, after the legalization of Christianity in 313, a...

    RE: Hahns treatment of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, we see the same mistakes being made. Mind you, these are serious errors,because they undermine the traditional understanding of who, precisely, was responsible for the first sin, as well as the theological ramifications of that initial sin. In brief, Hahn claims Adam sinned first, not Eve. He writes: "Thus, Adam's failure was virtually complete by the time Eve took her first bite" (A Father Who Keeps His Promises (FKP), p. 72). Suffice it to say, Hahn's conclusion is utterly false. But in observing how he deals with biblical...

    Data links early settlers to African diaspora DIFFERENT STORIES: While genetic research puts this land on a main route of early humans' dispersion, anthropologists tie early settlements to the Pearl River Delta By Wang Hsiao-wen STAFF REPORTER Sunday, Aug 29, 2004,Page 2 Long before Portuguese sailors put "Formosa" on the world map, and long before Chinese people crossed the dark current to set up home here, this land was inhabited by Austronesian Aborigines for thousands of years. Multigenetic analysis reveals that Austronesian tribes arrived as early as 14,000 years ago. According to Marie Lin (L), who conducted the research as...

    Illustration by Michael Rothman Before An Australopithecus, sporting full-bodied fur about four million years ago. After An archaic human walked fur-free about 1.2 million years ago, carrying fire on the savanna ONE of the most distinctive evolutionary changes as humans parted company from their fellow apes was their loss of body hair. But why and when human body hair disappeared, together with the matter of when people first started to wear clothes, are questions that have long lain beyond the reach of archaeology and paleontology. Ingenious solutions to both issues have now been proposed, independently, by two research groups analyzing...

    Narrow skulls clue to first Americans 11:24 04 September 03 NewScientist.com news service Skull measurements on the remains of an isolated group of people who lived at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California has stirred up the debate on the identity of the first Americans once again. The earliest inhabitants of North America differed subtly but significantly from modern native Americans. The difference is clearly seen in the skull shapes of the first people to colonise the continent, who had longer, narrower skulls than modern people. One theory says it is because two distinct groups of people migrated to...

    'Your forefathers were not Neanderthals' January 26 2004 at 02:30PM By Maggie Fox Washington - You may think your grandparents act like Neanderthals, but United States researchers said on Monday they had strong evidence that modern humans are not descended from them. A computer analysis of the skulls of modern humans, Neanderthals, monkeys and apes shows that we are substantially different, physically, from those early humans. New York University paleoanthropologist Katerina Harvati said Neanderthals should be considered a separate species from Homo sapiens, and not just a sub-species. "We interpret the evidence presented here as supporting the view that Neanderthals...

    We don't even know her name, yet she was discussed at the Scopes trial, mentioned in the play and movie Inherit the Wind[1] and the book and movie Contact,[2] and has been talked about in countries all over the world. Is she the most-talked-about wife in history? Skeptics have used Cain's wife time and again to try to discredit the Book of Genesis as a true historical record. Sadly, most Christians have not been able to give an adequate answer to this question. As a result, the world thinks Christians cannot defend the authority of Scripture and, thus, the Christian...
