    1. The fundamental question asked in this book is, what does it mean to be human? Are we the product of blind, undirected evolutionary processes that did not have us in mind, or are we carefully fashioned in the image of God, distinct from the rest of creation and thus endowed with dignity and purpose? For a century and a half, the only scientific theory on the table was Darwin's theory of evolution which, of course, taught the former. The combination of mutation, natural selection, and vast amount [...]


    2. Great multi-disciplinary discussion of the theory of human evolution vs. the argument for special creation. I am fascinated by the data that shows the rapid spread of humanity, our genetic derivation from DNA that originated recently in Africa or the Middle East, and the discontinuity among ancient hominids and modern humans. The chapter on the slim cosmic window allowing for life to exist on Earth at all is excellent. More biochemistry in the chapter on "Junk DNA" than I could absorb, but botto [...]


    3. Excellent book. I graduated college with a BA in Biology, went through 4 years of medical school, 1 year of internship, 2 years of residency, and 2 years of oncology fellowship. I am double-boarded in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology. I love science and practice evidence-based medicine on a daily basis.I stumbled upon this book at a local bookstore some years ago, specifically looking for a reference providing an in-depth analysis to reconcile secular scientific literature with the origin [...]


    4. The overally scientific tone may lend itself to academic credibility, but it also has the unfortunate effect of putting off the casual reader, I'm sure. Interesting take on a fascinating topic.




    5. Who Was Adam was co-authored by Dr. Fazale Rana – who wrote a majority of the contents – and Dr. Hugh Ross (15). Ross obtained an undergraduate degree in physics from the University of British Columbia and a terminal degree in astronomy from the University of Toronto. In 1986, he founded Reasons to Believe (RTB) with the goal of showing how scientific advances connect with biblical theology. Rana, who completed his PhD in Chemistry from Ohio University, worked for a number of years with Proc [...]


    6. Very good "catch-up" of recent science regarding human evolution and how the model proposed by Reasons to Believe (RTB) fares as a result. This was an update to the original 2005 text and covered a good sampling of what anthropologists, archaeologists, and paleontologists have discovered since then. The authors provided a very candid review of where the RTB model needed to a be adjusted as well as those areas where the model's predictions were born out. Excellent overall review for the intereste [...]


    7. Fazale Rana spearheads this book with input by Hugh Ross addressing the question of who was Adam? That is Adam of Adam and Eve from the Bible. Biblically speaking, humans were created by God and in the image of God. Naturally speaking, humans are just another primate descended from some common ancestor with the great apes such as the chimpanzee or gorilla. Are humans a product of evolution or are they the product of a creating act by a loving God? This book not meant to definitively state one wa [...]


    8. I thought the model presented was straightforward and with the correct attitude. God gave us the truth in the form of the Bible, and this is where we should always start when searching for the truth. Then the author tests his scientific model to prove that man was created by God. My favorite chapter was the one about junk DNA, fascinating science, and I never once bought into the notion that junk DNA was ever fact. I knew God wouldn't incorporate useless information into my genome.Conclusions:-T [...]


    9. We all have expectations.  They're fueled by our world-views, and it's unsettling when something unpredictable happens.  Case in point, for a couple thousand years, the Biblical model for origins reigned.  Adam and Eve were the first people.  Depending on how you cash that out, they could have been created within days of creation itself.  This makes us scratch our heads when we find hominid fossils.  Were they human beings on an earlier or divergent evolutionary path?  Were they somethin [...]


    10. This book was a bit dry, but I think that's necessary for this topic. The author does a good job of pointing out the disconnect between early hominids and modern humans. How the term "modern human" sometimes included earlier species and how much of evolutionary thought presumes the multi-region origins theory. If you've read some of RTB's earlier books on their origins model, this is a must read.


    11. Excellent book for a non-sciencey person like me. They explain the basics of evolution and then present their model -- made perfect sense. Though I didn't get to finish it yet, I would highly recommend this one to those who see the gaps in the theory of evolution all by itself and believe or are curious about Intelligent Design.


    12. This one was really closer to 2.5 stars for meI felt the overall narrative was one of fitting facts into their desired model and not the otherway around.
