Resources at RTB Relating to Human Origins

The following are some recent resources on the Reasons To Believe website relating to human origins and differences. They are arranged chronologically from the earliest to the latest. Some are articles and others audio podcasts. Because of the most recent scientific data and conclusions, the Reasons To Believe organization will probably have to re-adjust and revise their testable creation model. Both Hugh Ross and Fazale Rana are in the process of updating their book, "Who Was Adam?" I'll be updating this blog every now and then to add more links.

General Introductory articles:

Historical Adam

Age of Adam


Human & Chimp DNA Similarities

Evidence from Molecular Anthropology for an Historical Adam and Eve 
 - Fazale Rana, PhD
