Our statement of faith says it all.
That's where we stand.

  It is well known that ASA once issued an unambiguous statement: 'We believe in creation!' Would ASA be willing to follow that important, courageous clarification up with a further statement: 'We believe in Adam and Eve!'? This is one of my main questions for all theistic evolutionists (TE's).

  Here are some quotations by ASA list voices on the thread 'question to all the TE's' raised by G.Morton:

  "IOG must do something useful other than be a name. And while I agree, that no one can PROVE what it is, one can offer interesting possibilities." - Glenn M.

  "I don't claim to know who THE Adam & Eve were, except that the Bible says there were such people.I don't think Adam has to be neolithic; and indeed, I think the principle of accommodation can help explain the anachronisms in where the Bible seems to locate Adam in time." - David O.

  "There are of course different views on this, but I think the most consistent 'accommodation' view, gets rid of a historical Adam altogether." - Jack H.

  "If we discount the Genesis narrative as to place and time, (Mesopotamia, 7,000 years ago) why attach any credibility to the man named - Adam? Let's just say we don't believe any of it and that 'Adam' didn't exist at all." - Dick F. (tongue in cheek!)
