Science Proves that We Are All Descended from Adam

We are all ONE!

How many times have you heard that statement? How many times have you dismissed it? Maybe we truly are ONE people, one big family, connected through our DNA, related to each other.

The National Geographic’s documentary, The Search for Adam, provides DNA information that links all of us – and by all of us, I mean every single person on this planet, to one man, a man the documentary refers to as Scientific Adam.

The documentary is broken up into approximately four 10-minute segments and one 7-minute segment. I guarantee you, that if you have not seen this documentary yet, you will be amazed by the difference between what we perceive Adam must have looked like and what he most probably looked like.

Spencer Wells, a leading geneticist who is conducting experiments that will continue for many years, walks the viewer through the process of locating genetic markers on the Y chromosome that link us all together. As he travels around the world gathering DNA samples and following a lineage that takes us back 60,000 years he discovers, using forensic anthropological methods, that Michelangelo’s depiction of Adam is not accurate.

Be prepared for some surprises as you watch The Search for Adam.
