I recently saw 'The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey' on Public TV. Spencer Wells, a geneticist has been able to prove that all human races originated in Africa. Along with this documentary, he has published several scientific papers and a book on this subject. I don't know if anyone saw it, but the following link will give you some good info and an interview with Spencer:
If his findings are correct, this could have serious implications on the theological version of creation. After all, Jews, Muslims and Christians believe that man originated somewhere in the Middle East. The Bible does not give an exact location, but the few references it makes do not lead anywhere near Africa.
Do you remember reading the WT publication: Life: How did it get here? By evolution or by creation? Did anyone find it's explanation of creation valid?
If Adam and Eve were created by God, where did they live? Were they African? If man did originate in Africa, why does the Bible say otherwise? If man was created by God in Africa, was this fact hidden by the early translators of the Bible?
