Small problem, not to rib you about it ...
|here is what they found:|
|The results are based on analyses of mitochondrial DNA. Found in the energy-producing centers of cells, mitochondrial DNA is only passed down the maternal line, and can be traced back to one woman. |
the first true female was Eve Gen. 3:20 states-- "And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living...'
Here's another piece of information from genetic studies:
In human genetics, Y-chromosomal Adam (Y-MRCA) is the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) from whom all living people are descended patrilineally (tracing back along the paternal lines of their family tree only). Y-chromosomal Adam probably lived between 90,000 and 60,000 years ago in Africa and is the male counterpart of Mitochondrial Eve, although he lived much later than she did, possibly 50,000 to 80,000 years later.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitochondrial_Eve for similar wiki article on mDNA-Eve
Also see The Genetic Genealogist: Mitochondrial Eve and Y-chromosomal Adam ( July 20th, 2007)
So "Mitochondrial Eve" is older than "Y-chromosomal_Adam" ... much older ... way too much older to have lived at the same time, so how'd that rib thing work?
Science minded people (whether theistic or secular) pay attention to all the evidence, not just the evidence that suits their opinion/s.
