Comment 42 by Mr DArcy :

Why all the cynicism guys? Certain Christian theologians, no doubt some of them respected, are questioning whether Adam and Eve ever existed! I'm not sure what the Islamic or Jewish scholars think, but it seems these Christian scholars are in the avant guarde of the "progressive" religious movement. You know the movement that leads believers even more into the impenetrable swamps of and foggy land of the unknowable.

(I was never much good at poetry, but I hope my meaning was clear).

Replacing one delusion with another does not constitute progress in my opinion. Even if they dismissed this one story all together, it would have very little impact on their perception of reality.
