This spring the NC State InterVarsity Grad & Faculty Ministries will be hosting a conference on what is becoming a pretty hot-topic among evangelicals who have been paying attention to recent developments within the natural sciences, namely, Was there a historical Adam and Eve? Did Eden exist? Is Genesis 1-3 myth or history or what? These questions are, of course, sub-questions within the broader conversation about what to make of the relationship between Christianity and evolutionary theory. I will be posting a review soon on some recent books about faith and science, but for today I thought I would point you to a skirmish in the blogosphere over the question of whether there were a historical Adam and Eve.
I am going to withhold comment for now, but I would love to know what you think about all of this.
