Stranger Than Fiction

Scientists have discovered Adam’s grandmother, whom they named “Lucy” and was a approximately one hundred generations removed. What is stranger than fiction, scientists have never discovered Adam’s mother, who would have been about six thousand years old at about the same time Adam appeared on the scene. I think it is safe to say that Adam’s mother will never surface, in fact, he had no mother. Since he had no mother, who then would have been most likely to teach him to read and write.

The plot deepens in mystery. Since the origin of language is not known outside of biblical history, how was it that Adam had no need of a tutor. The strangest mystery of all is how is it we know so much about Lucy, but so little about Adam’s predecessors? The creation story is all about faith and “though I have all knowledge“, without faith it profiteth me nothing. Faith, hope and charity but the greatest of all is charity, without which, no man can see God.

(J. Frank Norris would have opposed any form of the Darwinian evolution).
