Continuing the discussion from In YEC, WHEN Was Adam?:
For the record, RTB is giving this a serious look. It will be interesting to report back after the Dabar Conference. They are thinking through the theological implications, it seems. Dabar is going to be important for them, because they are appropriately deferential to theologians in the network.
Also, it appears the Gulf Oasis was around at 10 kya, and I do not usually set a firm date, ranging between 15 kya, 10 kya, and 6 kya, depending on the audience and (perhaps) my mood. So, maybe don’t say that I’m fixated on a particular data. I am not.
Most OEC theologians have come to terms with Adam as far back as 200 kya, so anythign less than 50 kya is surprising for them. I don’t really care when they want to put him. Everything with good theology that is consistent with the evidence is helpful.
On the scientific side, Fuz Rana has so far been unwilling to look at analysis or engage. That is very unfortunate. As @Guy_Coe and @Revealed_Cosmology have noted, this evidence overturns their model. This evidence, also, is starting to build an unlikely consensus between myself and several people outside the evolution camp (e.g. @Agauger and others). The sooner they engage with this the better. Though I’m not sure how to bring Fuz Rana to the table. Anyone have ideas there?
