ISCAST: Review of The Genealogical Adam and Eve

ISCAST is new to me and appears to be an Australian Faith-Science organization that is friendly to evolutionary science.

This book is certainly interesting, and will no doubt provide much discussion amongst those who believe that Genesis is providing information about how the world was created. On the other hand, if you believe that the Bible was not written to answer questions that we now call “scientific,” with the Genesis narrative being more like a parable (e.g., see Goldingay, “Genesis Part I”), then it’s likely that this won’t change your mind! But, as I’ve noted already, there are many questions in this creation space that remain unanswered, with new questions that necessarily arise from Swamidass’s thesis.
