Our Oneness in Adam

"And therefore God created only one single man, not, certainly, that he might be a solitary bereft of all society, but that by this means the unity of society and the bond of concord might be more effectually commended to him, men being bound together not only by similarity of nature, but by family affection," quotes Bonald — Saint Augustine on the unity of the human race in Adam.

True. But don't expect it to carry any weight against those informed by the genetic sciences where the discussion dismisses such 'fables' out of hand.

For the polygenicists their attempts at understanding places the sciences as the better known master where the Faith must be explained in light of the master. Where understanding explains away the Faith versus using using the sciences to understand Faith and science as both creatures of God.

Such is backwards world we live in.

Indeed. There is, of course, much scientific and linguistic support for the idea of monogenism that these people dismiss outright because it does not gel with their materialist worldview.
