BioLogos site cracks down – on Canadian supporter too ready to cash in on the Christianity Today “ape Adam and Eve”article

Yes, this, one, on why there is no Adam or Eve. Just ancestral primates who happened to become us (and a key editor is mad at me (?) for complaining about the new spin.)
Meanwhile, Canadian Christian Darwinist Denis Lamoureux pffftt!! At BioLogos. No, really.
Here’s president Darrel Falk:
In general, our experience has been that theologians are in one of two camps. Either they work within the framework of a non-historical Adam and Eve or they believe the scientific conclusions will eventually prove to be deeply flawed and humans were not created through an evolutionary process after all.
Good strategy that. Backtrack after the damage is done.
Sources tell me Lamoureux wasn’t having any of that reasonable doubt stuff. Can’t reproduce what he wrote, as it has been sponged. So “beaglelady” wrote to ask,
Denis Lamoureux posted a very relevant comment on this thread and now it is gone! Do you know what happened to it?
Well, the answer came back:
beaglelady,Denis appeared to get carried away with demeaning or belittling comments toward Dr. Falk and his comments were removed. He apparently fares no better than the rest of us when our tone gets too edgy toward each other.
Whooo!! I remember Lamoureux trashing an award-winning science teacher on a TV program in Toronto. The teacher suffered from Doubts. Like a lot of us do.
Take heart. Real science goes on. A scientist friend wrote to say:
Of course, the denial of a historical Adam and Eve based on population genetics is a denial based purely on a questionable (and empirically uncorroborated) theory about the origin of species.
Yes, but hey, Big Guy. This row is all about BioLogos’s and Christianity Today’s “science,” not about actual science, like you do. Just go to work tomorrow and forget it.
