I have not read the entire volume of GAE, so I don’t know if Matthew 3:9 is discussed. But today I’ve been thinking about the implications of this interesting text:
Don’t just say to each other, ‘We’re safe, for we are descendants of Abraham.’ That means nothing, for I tell you, God can create children of Abraham from these very stones. — Matt. 3:9 (NLT)
If God can de novo create (from stones) Homo sapiens with genomes consistent with Abrahamic ancestry, then it is easy to assume that God could likewise de novo create Adam and Eve to have genomes reproductively compatible with the contemporary evolved hominids with whom their children would intermarry.
Perhaps this observation is old hat within the GAE discussion community and I’ve just not noticed---- but I’m particularly curious as to how our Bible-affirming PS participants may assess this analogy.
POSTSCRIPT: The Discourse software Search feature was not all that helpful in finding any previous discussions of Matthew 3:9 on PS. I tried both “Matthew 3:9” and “Matthew_3:9” as well as “Matt. 3:9”.
