The latest theory from science concerning how far back humans go, now includes the hypothesis that there was not Adam and Eve only at the beginning, but there must have been an original population of about 10,000. Main stream evolutionary thought proposes that an early population of about 10,000 human type ancestors were the base of the homo-erectus population we have today, and no one Adam or Eve can account for the genetic sequencing we observe today. Randall Isacc, executive director of the American Scientific Affiliation (with over 1,600 members), states that “The human population was definitely never as small as two…our species diverged as a population. The (DNA) data are absolutely clear on that.”
It is interesting that this is a biblical issue as well. Hebrew scholars have for centuries thought that those created on the sixth day (Gen. 1:26-31), were not Adam and Eve, but a small population created by God to join with Adam and Eve. Also, in Acts 17:26, God's Word tells us that “He made from one man every nation of mankind,” which means that, even if there was a “small population” created by God, God provided for the line of Adam to form every nation we see today. Romans 5:12 states, “Through Adam, sin entered the world, and death through sin, and death spread to all men, because all sinned.” Therefore, death spread to all men, which would include any others God may have created on day six of creation (Gen. 1:26-31), if, in fact, God did create a small population (Nod), to join with Adam and Eve.
Science and a large percentage of the scientists who do the research, are really painting a great picture for themselves, aren’t they! They throw away ALL of the truth that is GIVEN to us in God’s Word, and try to tell us that through “SCIENCE” and “BILLIONS” of years this world was formed. But this isn't what God's word, the Bible, tells us! We are in a battle here. Don't be misinformed, I know that this is a bit out of context but this verse speaks to me, and I hope it speaks to you as well: John 8:32 “and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” To get help understanding His Word, you need to read the books The Flat Earth & Genesis, or Science, Origins & Ancient Civilizations. These books will help you understand the Word and to reveal to you the truth about what the Bible says! Get the facts; stay informed!
