For years they have been gravely advising their fellow Christians that science rules out belief in a historical first pair of human beings.

There are conflicting evidences, a lack of details, opposing hypotheses held with great confidence, and a wide range of explanatory mechanisms that are routinely used as needed.
Research into human origins, we mean the entire field, is a mess.
You’d likely predict: This will largely be about the timing of our primordial fire use. There will be comparisons with chimps.
