MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, THIS BOOK illustrates the futility of attempting to either shoehorn the Bible into science or science into the Bible. To his credit S. Joshua Swamidass seems to be attempting more to make evolution palatable to evangelical Christians than to attempt to convert scientists and secularists to Christianity.
Dr. Swamidass’s basic thesis is that, while humans evolved over hundreds of thousands of years from australopithecines, as evolutionary science and theistic evolutionists assert, God created Adam and Eve supernaturally from dust in the Garden of Eden. Despite this miraculous origin, Adam and Eve were not genetically different from the divinely evolved humans outside the garden. Thus, their offspring were able to interbreed with the outsiders (solving the troubling question of where Cain found his wife) and spread their genes through the entire population.
