Adamic Wonderings...

Christianity Today's cover story is about whether or not Adam & Eve really existed...folks like Francis Collins and Bruce Waltke have been espousing certain theories related to the origins of man and this question has taken the Evangelical World by storm. More information to follow, but suffice it to say, In my opinion, there HAS TO HAVE BEEN a literal, real, historical Adam...some reasons follow:

The Genealogy of Christ mentions it:
Luke 3:38- "the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God"

This does not completely disprove Theistic evolution, but Luke is clearly pointing to a historical person...was he wrong? This goes beyond just the issue of how to interpret Genesis...if Jesus' Scriptural genealogy was incorrect, where does that leave other passages of Luke that say...speak of the Savior's work...
