Question; I have been following the work of Hugh Ross and his team on reasonstobelieve.org. A claim made on that web-site is that we can show using y-chromosomal and mitochondrial DNA that the population of mankind can be traced back to a mitochondrial Eve and a y-chromosomal Adam.

We do not know when the flood happened, but presumably it was at least several thousand years ago. I can only assume that human beings evolved the different “racial” characteristics over the past several thousand years. In a gene pool with a fairly broad genetic diversity, the physical characteristics which lead to the greatest survival […]

What about the Giants like Goliath? Is there any record outside the Bible that describes them? And how can I explain 2 Samuel 21:19? I suppose you will find some one who will claim that some obscure reference to giants in the literature of the Assyrians or the Egyptians or so forth supports the Biblical […]

The term literally means “the fallen ones.” Some say they were a race of giants, the offspring of angels and women, to which Goliath and Lahmi belonged. (This sounds too much like Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology for me.) Others say they were the sinful seed of Cain, who later appear as the Canaanites. Scholarship […]
