In much of the world, the prevailing view of human origins is steeped in the evolutionary paradigm…. Yet, an increasing number of scientific studies from primatology, physical anthropology, and archeology are challenging the standard evolutionary view.  In other words, there is emerging scientific evidence for human uniqueness and exceptionalism. This presentation suggests a way to integrate these emerging scientific insights and the biblical accounts of human origins.
