This is a awesome article the was posted on NPR today. It’s worth the read!
with the mapping of the human genome, it’s clear that modern humans emerged from other primates as a large population — long before the Genesis time frame of a few thousand years ago. And given the genetic variation of people today, he says scientists can’t get that population size below 10,000 people at any time in our evolutionary history.
Again going back to my sunday school days I thought it was weird that 2 people could have started the whole human population. One other quote talks about if we really did come from 1 couple then we would have mutated at such a fast rate that we would have mutated out of existence.
I can’t really elaborate any more on this topic because the article did it for me. The more and more I find these articles where science debunks the biblical stories the more and more I get excited for science.
