How old is the earth? Billions of years or just thousands of years?
In the beginning God created... how long ago was it that God created? In the 1990's, studying mitochondrial DNA, scientists determined Eve lived 200,000 years ago. But by the end of the 1990's they had learned more about the mutation rate of DNA, and that number dropped down to 6000 years. God created Eve on day six, 6000 years ago,
Here is what happened: Originally it was thought that our DNA was composed of 80% junk... leftovers from failed mutations that did not produce a benefit. But, in the late 1990's it was found that the junk DNA was not junk, but performed important functions. This dramatically changed the DNA mutation rate, and resulting in the date of the first human woman being revised to be in the range of 6,000 years.
It's now been nearly 20 years since junk DNA was debunked by secular geneticists, but this has largely been ignored by believers in evolution. Why? Because it proves evolution is impossible. Anything that shows evolution is impossible must be attacked, and if it can't be attacked it is ignored.
It is important to note that Mitochondrial DNA does not scientifically prove that Eve was the first woman. It only shows that everyone alive today descends from one woman who lived about 6,000 years ago. The facts of mitochondrial DNA alone allow for other women to have existed before Eve, or at the same time as Eve, but their children did not survive to leave evidence of their existence. Mitochondrial DNA is consistent with the Biblical account, but on it's own it does not rule out evolution. However, as shown in another of our videos, that "junk" DNA is actually functional means we are not only not evolving, we are heading for extinction.
