One of the regular commenters on The Naked Bible (Jonathan) sent me this link to a discussion  on the topic “Adam and Eve: Did They Really Exist?”  He recommended I read the opening statements of both contributors, and I do the same to you.  Jonathan also noted that it was Father Hensen’s view that seemed most akin to our discussion, since he zeroes in on the pre-scientific nature (he presumes) of Genesis 3.  I’ll give this a couple days before chiming in, and will be continuing both the canon and Romans 5:12 issue as well.
