Whom to believe?

In a previous post I stated that if I ran across an article that I couldn’t comment on it at the time, I would bookmark it for future reference.

Today, since I didn’t know what to beef about I went to my bookmarks. I found this
Almost every man alive can trace his origins to one man who lived about 135,000 years ago, new research suggests. And that ancient man likely shared the planet with the mother of all women.

The findings, detailed Thursday, Aug. 1, in the journal Science, come from the most complete analysis of the male sex chromosome, or the Y chromosome, to date. The results overturn earlier research, which suggested that men's most recent common ancestor lived just 50,000 to 60,000 years ago.
Now I know that a lot of people have lost faith because some preachers' actions away from the pulpit have cast doubts on them and indeed religion as a whole. The lies and misinterpretation of some verses of the Bible have not helped. But if your faith is deep enough, by reading the article quoted above, you will not be deterred from what science has claimed to have discovered using DNA. Because what they apparently have discovered goes against what is written in the Bible.

These days it’s hard to believe what anyone says - especially when it comes to science. I’m not going to use the same words as they did but how can two people mate when they don’t know each other and live apart from each other? I will say even though I don’t believe what they have supposedly discovered it’s still interesting to read.
