Was Adam an accident of nature or a deliberative, purposeful design?
While observations seem to validate evolutionary theory, long before Darwin, a man named David voiced a different view. And both men can’t be right.
Cutting-edge research presents new findings on:
- The hominid fossil record
- Junk DNA
- Human and chimp genetic similarity
Biochemist Fazale Rana and astronomer Hugh Ross discuss these discoveries and propose a new scientifically testable model for human origins. Can human evolution be declared a fact? Or does creation make more scientific sense?

This is a scholarly, in-depth scientific treatment of the origin of human beings from an old-earth creationist point of view that is based on a belief in the historicity and reliability of the Genesis record.
—Dr. Norman Geisler, dean, Southern Evangelical Seminary
Fazale Rana and Hugh Ross have produced a creation model on the origin of man that is at once as comprehensive in its data-gathering as it is challenging in the depth of its detail. Readers, regardless of their perspective on the matter of human origins, will be impressed with the fairness, balanced, and scope of the arguments. Who Was Adam takes the creationist/evolutionist debate to a whole new level but insists on grounding the debate in the new evidences from genetics, biochemistry, archaeology, geology, and even astrophysics and the biblical narrative of creation.
—Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., president, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Old Testament
