Casey Luskin discusses what we might learn from the debate:
Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the broadcast and the podcast, is joined by Dr. Casey Luskin, associate director of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, and author of “Lessons Learned (and Not Learned) from the Evangelical Debate Over Adam and Eve” in the upcoming issue of the Christian Research Journal. Hank and Dr. Luskin discuss why so many Christians are so quick to abandon the belief of a historical Adam and Eve, theistic evolution, evolutionary creationism, the argument that human genetic diversity can’t be explained by an original Adam and Eve and more.
Note: If Adam and Eve are mythical figures, the problem for Christians is the Scriptural statement,
For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. – 1 Corinthians 15:22, NIV
Proclaiming Adam to be a myth naturally raises the question about the promises of Christ. This is one of the reasons Woke churches tend to be empty ones. – O’Leary for News

Long a defender of orthodoxy, Craig seems to want to prune the orthodoxies he is expected to defend.
