Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) studies in the 1980’s and ’90’s, nicknamed the “Eve Theory,” showed that there must have been a common human parent from which humans came. Since there is no genetic recombination (because males make no mtDNA contribution to the unborn), then all mtDNA comes from mothers through their daughters. So then all humans had to have come from a first mother! This establishes the Bible claim in Genesis 3:20 NJKV: “Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.” Jesus said: “He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’” the genders mentioned in Genesis 1:27 and said, “a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife.” These words occur, historically, only once: Genesis 2:24. Scientific face proves Scripture true!
