THE ORIGIN OF MANKIND
"Genetic evidence indicates that all living people are closely related and share a recent common ancestor." Dr. Stringer contends that this common ancestor "probably lived in Africa" and that from this ancester "all the living peoples of the world originated". Dr. Christopher Stringer, Natural History Museum of London. From Evolution of Early Humans, Steve Jones et al. (editors.), The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Evolution, Cambridge University Press, 1992, p. 249.
Genesis 1:26-27: "Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image,in the image of God he created him;male and female he created them.
Genesis 2:10-14: A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. The name of the first is the Pishon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there. The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush. And the name of the third river is the Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. (Africa)
