Dear John Misasi,

Basically we must accept the unity of the human race, not only on the basis of
Gen. 1-5, but also because of Rom.5:18. Therefor all men are involved in the
sin of Adam.

Secondly, the difference is not fact or myth, but that truth may be expressed in
diffrent forms. A scientific report is not a poem, or a polemical article, or .
. .. Therfor, even if Gen.1 and 2 are not written in scientific language, they
may express Truth in biblical sense, not necessarily in Greek philosophical
sense. A poem, expressing truth in a poetical way is therfor not scientific
