30. Eve: Mother of all Living


30. Eve: Mother of all Living



Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. 
—Genesis 3:20

According to an article in NewScientist (as well as many other researchers in human genetics), scientists can "trace back the DNA in the maternally inherited mitochondria within our cells" to what they call a "theoretical" common ancestor. They call her “mitochondrial Eve.”

Naturally, the ASA claim mitochondrial  Eve lived "between 100,000 and 200,000 years ago" and that she was "was not the first human" but that "every other female lineage eventually had no female offspring, failing to pass on their mitochondrial DNA."

In other words, EVERY single other woman was a #boymom and they and their descendants all became extinct, because everyone living today, male and female, can be traced back to "mitochondrial Eve."

Okay. Sure.

And in contrast to the Sumerian and other ancient legends where the gods created multiple humans, the Jewish record just happened to have a "myth" that lined up with the science that all humans came from one woman.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

SwordCraft Tip: If you have wide-margins, beside Genesis 3:20, write in your designated supernatural warfare color, "Maternally-inherited mitochondria DNA confirms all living people came from one woman."

Had you ever heard of "mitochondrial Eve?" Do you find it exciting that science is continually discovering confirmation of the Bible (even though the ASA won't admit it)? Share your thoughts on the Blogging His Story Facebook page!
