Evidence of Human Origins

“Recent genetic and archeological findings show that human beings did not evolve from ape-like creatures,” contends internationally respected biochemist Dr. Fazale “Fuz” Rana.

“With the discovery of what scientists have aptly named Y-chromosomal Adam and Mitochondrial Eve, new genetic and DNA evidence with the fossil record show very clearly that modern humans are not related to previously existing hominids as once believed.

“There is astonishing new evidence to support the position that Homo sapiens exploded onto the scene less than 100,000 years ago from a single man and a single woman. Even more astounding is that scientists now know that human origins had their beginning in a particular geographical area - the same area identified by most biblical scholars as the physical location of the Garden of Eden. Belief in a literal and historical Adam and Eve as recounted in the Bible has greater scientific credibility today than at any other time in human history.”

Rana adds that the Darwinian theory of biological evolution is no longer valid in light of today’s fast-changing technology. “But many in the scientific community refuse to accept a paradigm shift because until now there has not been another model with superior explanatory power and predictive success to replace the evolutionary model.”

Since 1986 Rana has led Reasons to Believe, an institute founded to research and proclaim new reasons from the frontiers of science for trust in God’s Word and faith in Jesus Christ.
