Were Adam and Eve Real or a Myth? Science Says Real

2892187157.jpgA few days ago when I was talking about Adam and Eve, my teenage son remarked that in school (a Catholic school, no less) he was taught that Adam and Eve were mytholocial, not real. I told him I thought they were both, first real , then typological, and eventually mythological. I had forgotten a key bit of information to share with my son. My pastor reminded me of it yesterday.

“Everyone in the world can be placed on a single family tree, in terms of their mitochondrial DNA, because everyone has inherited that piece of DNA from a single woman, the mitochondrial Eve, who lived some 200,000 years ago. ”
