I think one valid question would be regarding why God has not weighed in on this matter and how that affects the confidence form of knowledge that is the basis of theology.

Charles Lee Irons

It may be true, given a less literal exegesis of certain key texts (which I'm not convinced of yet), that God has not weighed in directly on the matter. Nevertheless, even granting that exegesis for the sake of the argument, I think God has revealed some important theological principles in Genesis and in the New Testament concerning Adam (as having a unique role at the headwaters of the human race and as one through whom sin entered the world) that would require Christians who wish to adopt an evolutionary scenario for the origin of man to do so cautiously and with some important qualifications.
