SUNDAY REVELATIONS: When was the garden of Eden?


Based on The Temptation of Adam and Eve by Titian, oil painting.


When did the Deity create Man?  A new study indicates that the guy scientists call “Y-chromosomal Adam,” or “Genetic Adam,” walked the Earth around 209,000 years ago. The finding contradicts biblical  literalists claim that the creation was about 6000 years ago.  previous research indicating that the lineage of the human male dates back 338,000 years .

This is long before archaeologists find evidence from tools and symbols that rst modern humans made their appearance, around 200,000 years ago. However, the bible is supported by the finding that the Y (male) chromosome did not come into being as a result of interbreeding between Homo sapiens females and the males of other hominin species.

“There is no evidence to support introgression from other species,” Dr. Eran Elhaik, a co-author and lecturer at the University of Sheffield in the U.K. He told The Huffington Post: “Modern humans’ male and female ancestors have emerged around the same time. Modern humans’ ancestors have emerged or arrived to Africa a little over 200,000 years ago and gave rise to many of the populations in Africa who, in turn, passed their genetic information to contemporary people.”

This new study was published online Jan. 22 in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
