Science Says The Human Race Originated from Just one Couple Who Lived Thousands of Years Ago
Is science proving the Adam and Eve story of creation or perhaps the biblical event of the great flood? Given the fact that Darwin’s theory of evolution does reign supreme among scientists, new research has given scientists reasons to believe that after that, the entire human race was wiped out by a catastrophic event and that the present human race was started by just a pair of humans who survived. Well, It couldn’t be Noah as he and his family accounted for more than four, so then is it the new science-backed Adam and Eve?
1Science now declares we originated from a single couple
Now science has declared after research from genetic bar-codes involving five million animals and humans that humans sprung up from a single pair of adults who lived 100,000 to 200,000 years ago after the disaster wiped out the entire human race. The genetic research was done form 100,000 different species to deduce the conclusion.
2The evidence was collected from genetic bar codes
Genetic barcodes are the DNA snippets that are found on the external part of the nuclei of a living cell. The barcodes from the species studied by the research gave scientists valid reasons to believe that such a thing was indeed possible and that it wasn’t just people who sprung out of a single pair of living beings but almost 9 out of 10 animal species too.
3Adam and Eve or Noah?
Now isn’t that something fantastic? It might be too incredible to believe but can you argue with science? So if it was all two by two’s doesn’t the story of Noah ring a bell? The scientists who authored the study were Stoeckle and Thaler. They concluded that 90% of all the animals’ species existing today came from parents who gave birth approximately at the same time.
4What the researchers stated
The timing of this event was calculated to have happened 250, 000 years ago and this seriously throws certain theories of evolution out of sync. According to Thaler ‘this conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could.”
The study led by Senior Research Associate Mark Stoehler and David Thaler of the University of Basel were helped by a team from experts of the Rockefeller University. The findings were published in the journal Human Evolution.
