WEBINAR - Genesis and Genetics: Were Adam and Eve Real People?
Recent scientific studies from the Human Genome Project may suggest it is genetically impossible for billions of people today to have derived from only two individuals: Adam and Eve. That's why increasing numbers of scholars are saying that "Adam" refers to 10,000 persons as opposed to one person. What are Christ followers to say in response to such a claim? Is Genesis 1-3 historically true? Does Jesus' genealogy described in Luke 3 trace back to a real person named Adam? Fuz Rana, Ph.D. has expertise as a biochemist to consider this matter at the cellular level. What he says will strengthen your faith. This seminar is for anyone interested in apologetics, evangelism, and the Bible in relation to the hard sciences.
Biochemist Fazale “Fuz” Rana is Vice President of research and apologetics at Reasons to Believe. Fuz earned a BS in Chemistry at West Virginia State University and a Ph.D. in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry at Ohio University. He pursued postdoctoral studies in the biophysics of cell membranes at the Universities of Virginia and Georgia, has coauthored numerous papers for peer-reviewed journals, and holds two patents. After Fuz converted to Christianity during graduate school, he eventually turned away from his belief in evolution and concluded instead that only a Creator’s involvement could explain the elegance of biochemical systems. Today Fuz writes and speaks extensively about evidence for creation emerging from biochemistry, genetics, human origins, and synthetic biology. He is the author of multiple books, including Dinosaur Blood and the Age of the Earth, Who Was Adam?, and The Cell’s Design.
