Jeff Conklin talks about the negative effect of evolution on the basic doctrines of Christianity. Was there a literal Adam and Eve? If they were simply myths or legend, and if the first eleven chapters of Genesis are questionable, how can we explain the goodness of God, the origin of sin and death and the need for Jesus Christ the savior? Jesus himself believed in the historical fact of the fall of Adam, and that is why he came to redeem us. Evolution erodes the foundation of the Christian faith.
