Out of Babel—not Africa: genetic evidence for a biblical model of human origins

In Journal of Creation 34 (1): 79-85, April 2020

The recent human evolution story is a quagmire of ever-changing speculations that vary and conflict in their dates and geographical specifics with each new paleoanthropological or archaic DNA sequence discovery. The current general consensus is often termed the recent out-of-Africa model that postulates anatomically modern humans migrated out of Africa about 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. While various versions of the hypothetical evolutionary story exist, an increasing body of research in both the creationist and secular spheres is vindicating the Bible’s timeline of a global-Flood-based genetic bottleneck about 4,500 years ago and a recent creation about 6,000 years ago. In this review, I cover the overwhelming evidence from genetics research of various flavors that fully vindicates a biblical picture of human origins.
