Those who ascribe to the Theory of Evolution and Common Descent (and that this question has been asked several times in this thread, Romans 5:12 and Doctrinal Implications - NT and remains unanswered:

The setting:

Brethren ascribing to Theistic evolution have made the following claims (which contradicts Biblical Record) that:

  • Adam and Eve are allegorical (hence mankind evolved through common descent)
  • Adam and Eve were "REAL PEOPLE" but were set amongst an evolved race (common descent)
  • Adam and Eve were taken from the existing an evolved race (common descent) - because they were part of the evolved race
How then, did the evolved race, (attested to by several brethren as being the correct point of view), through common descent, acquire the mind we have?

Was it through “random errors filtered by natural selection”?

Or is there a different explanation?

Natural selection is the non-random survival of random changes. At some point, humanity's ancestors started developing larger brains and survived because they adapted best to the environment.

Cool Spot - I meant sometime ago (months ago actually) to get back to your comment.

What evidence do they have, really, the statement that you make here:

"humanity's ancestors started developing larger brains and survived because they adapted best to the environment"

What is the observable evidence, that this took place and the statement you make is a statement of fact and not supposition?

Skulls are measured, readings taken, but there is no real evidence from the science why and how we happen to be, and the intelligence we possess and that and to quote (passages cited - Acts 17:26 and Malachi 2:10):

... which seem to emphasize that the entire human race descended physically from Adam. It is not easy to reconcile such passages with the notion that Homo sapiens evolved from ape-like ancestors before Adam was personally selected for upgrading to Homo spiritualis



Page 198 - Creation and Evolution - The Facts and Fallacies

That is the very problem - the contradictions between what science supposes (based on supposition) to what God has declared = conflict.
