Q&A

On a daily basis, info@biologos.org receives a plethora of questions from people all over the world. We try our best to answer as many emails as possible. Check out this example of a question we recently received. You may have had a similar question yourself.

Question:
What does BioLogos believe about human origins and Adam and Eve?

Answer:
Dear BioLogos Inquirer,

Thanks for writing! The subject of human origins is very important indeed. BioLogos holds that God created humans through a gradual process. God created humans in biological continuity with all life on earth, but also as spiritual beings. God established a unique relationship with humanity by endowing us with his image and calling us to an elevated position within the created order. (You can read our statement of beliefs here.)

BioLogos does not, however, take a firm stance on whether or not Adam and Eve were historical figures. Many people mistakenly believe that if one accepts an evolutionary creation perspective, then one has to throw out the historicity of Adam and Eve. Not so! Some who hold the evolutionary creation view feel strongly that they were historical, while others do not.

Here are a few helpful articles and blogs on the subject:

We hope this is helpful. Thanks for being a part of the conversation at BioLogos!

Blessings,
The BioLogos Team
