“The Bible story of Adam and Eve, father and mother of the whole human race, told centuries ago the same truth that science has shown today: that all the peoples of the earth are a single family and have a common origin.”
The Races of Mankind (New York, 1978), Ruth Benedict and Gene Weltfish, p. 3.
“All of us, if we went back far enough, hundreds of generations, would arrive at the same place . . . the evidence of science is that present men derive from a common stock.”
Publication by the Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization of the United Nations.
“All varieties of man belong to the same species and have the same remote ancestry. This is a conclusion to which all evidence of anatomy, paleontology, serology, and genetics, points. On genetic grounds alone it is virtually impossible to conceive of the varieties of man as having originated separately.” Anthropologist M. F. Ashley Montagu.
“Science now corroborates what most great religions have long been preaching:
Human beings of all races are . . . descended from the same first man.”
Heredity in Humans (Philadelphia and New York, 1972), Amram Scheinfeld, p. 238.
“The story of Adam and Eve in the book of Genesis has been vindicated, in part at least, by science. Its main point is now generally accepted as true: namely, that there is only one human family . . . with a common origin.”
Charles Darwin admitted:
“To the question why we do not find rich fossiliferous deposits belonging to these assumed earliest periods prior to the Cambrian system, I can give no satisfactory answer.”
The Origin Of Species” Page 90
Has the situation changed? Paleontologist Alfred S. Romer:
“Below this Cambrian period, there are vast thicknesses of sediments in which the progenitors of the Cambrian forms would be expected. But we do not find them.
The general picture could reasonably be said to be consistent with the idea of special creation.”
“Darwin And The Fossil Record” Page 466, 467.
Biochemist D. B. Gower comments:
“The story of the fossils agreed with the account of Genesis. In the oldest rocks we did not find a series of fossils covering the gradual changes from the most primitive creatures to developed forms, but rather, developed species suddenly appeared.”
Kentish Times (Dec.11/75) Page 4
Zoologist Harold Coffin concluded:
“On the basis of the facts alone, on the basis of what is actually found, the theory of a sudden creative act in which the major forms of life were established fits best.”
