Human Origins and Human Nature

Faith and Philosophy 26 (5):566-570 (2009)
Abstract
Both religion and science provide powerful images of human origins and human nature. Often these images are seen as incompatible or irreconcilable, with the religious image generally marginalized vis-à-vis the scientific image. Recent genetic studies into human origins, especially in terms of common cellular features like the mitochondrion from females and the Y-chromosome from males, provide evidence for common ancestors called mitochondrial Eve and Y-chromosomal Adam. The aim of this paper is to expound upon the Judeo-Christian and western scientific images of humanity with respect to human origins and human nature, especially in terms of possible reconciliation of the two images
