In 248 Origen wrote that Genesis references to Adam are "not so much of one particular individual as of the whole human race"

Marc, spot on. The author's use of Origen is disingenuous at best. The church, early and late, shunned Origen. He was never made a saint and I know of none of his theology that survives in the RC catechism. Maybe IA knows more, but only lately have church leaders begun citing Origen again.
