On this week’s episode of Mere Fidelity, we decided to continue the Bible study in the creation narrative of Genesis that we began last week (I’m late to posting this one, as I’ve been without proper Internet connection for the past week).
You can also follow the podcast on iTunes, or using this RSS feed. Listen to past episodes on Soundcloud and on this page on my blog.

Well tethered again, by AR, with the theological “creativity “of creation, despoiled by the interjected contributions from AW: sound though they may have been, they sounded terrible, unfortunately, acoustically garbled in the UK, perhaps spoken from beneath the waters?
Alastair, I just spent a good while searching for a particular comment you once made on the topic of human origins. I might be wrong on this, but I think you were suggesting that there were other humans than just Adam and Eve, and that Adam was the representative priest of that pre-fall humanity. Maybe I’m way off, but I think I remember you articulating that view somewhere, in just a paragraph or so. Any idea where that might be? If not, would you mind giving a brief articulation your understanding of human origins as it relates to Gen 1–3?
Not sure where that might be. That isn’t a position I hold, but it is possibility to which I am open.
Thanks! That may have been it, though I thought I remembered it being a bit longer than that. I’m wanting to think through this possibility more.
