I’ve been trying to find answers about this whole Evolution thing in regards to Genesis, and although I have found some answers to be helpful, I still have some questions that I feel haven’t been answered, so I would really appreciate it if you guys were to help me. Thanks in advance.
How old is the book of Genesis?
Who wrote the book of Genesis?
Is or are the writers of Genesis 30,000 years old? If not, then how can we say that there were first parents who transmitted what we call “Original Sin” if say the writer or writers of Genesis weren’t there from the beginning of humanity? I know that we don’t really take the Book of Genesis as a scientific account, so yeah.
Is it true that we treat Adam and Eve as something symbolic? If so, then how can we say that there is “Original Sin” in the first place?
How can we say that we were meant to be immortal when historical evidence purports that there has been death even way before the presence of humans? I’ve heard a Priest talk about this during the Immaculate Conception Homily, about how if Adam and Eve didn’t eat of the fruit then there would be no physical death as well as spiritual. (I don’t know, maybe I just misunderstood him).
