Featuring Joshua Swamidass & Nathan Lents:
Joshua Swamidass is the author of ‘The Genealogical Adam and Eve: The surprising science of universal ancestry’. He says that the book could end the war between evolution and creation as it reveals the scientific basis for why everybody on earth could be descendants of a single human couple within the last several thousand years.
He is joined by atheist biologist Nathan Lents who has given his support to the book, believing that it may help Christians who hold to a traditional understanding of the Adam and Eve story, to also accept evolutionary science.
Note: As it happens, “accepting” evolutionary science means ignoring many of Lents’ own musings. See, for example: Nathan Lents is wrong about sinuses but still writing about them
