Were Adam and Eve Real?

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image’…in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

— Genesis 1:26a-27b

When you come to discuss Adam and Eve, you immediately run head on into the great wall of evolution. This view has so permeated our society and indeed the society of almost the whole world, that there are few people today who are even willing to give an intelligent hearing on a true Adam and Eve. As well we might examine something from Aesop’s Fables, they say, as to examine Adam and Eve.

Well, it is my conclusion after decades of studying the matter, that never has a bigger lie been foisted on the human race with less evidence than that of evolution. Many people suppose that it is a scientific fact that has been established by overwhelming evidence. Well, is that the case or not?

Aldous Huxley—grandson of Thomas Huxley, Darwin’s bulldog—admitted that it wasn’t science that caused them to believe in evolution. Evolution allowed them to pursue their own immorality. In his 1937 book, Ends and Means, Huxley admitted, “We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom…The supporters of these systems claimed that in some way they embodied the meaning (a Christian meaning, they insisted) of the world.”

Science? It had more to do with sin than science. “And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to a debased mind,” Paul tells us in Romans 1:28. Keep studying and keep seeking the truth, and the God of Truth will reveal it.

Dear God, we wish to be true to Your Word and to read it correctly. Give us the grace to interpret it wisely and not through the lens of popular thinking. Thank You for the scientists who work so diligently at seeking truth. Give them Your wisdom…
