Ancient DNA and the Bible
Description: The new field of ancient DNA is changing everything we once thought about human history. No longer are we sitting in the dark, imagining all sorts of things about where people came from. Instead, we can now peek into their graves and know who was related to whom and where they lived in the past. Our understanding of the settling of Europe, Africa, and Asia have been turned upside down, but Neanderthals and the enigmatic Denisovans have also been brought into the family fold. Ancient DNA challenges the timescale of evolution (since DNA cannot last many thousands of years) but also our interpretation of the Table of Nations in Genesis 10. The picture is entirely biblical, but it is not what many expect when they come to the Bible for the first time.
