This book brings together into a plausible synthesis what we know about original sin as taught by the Catholic Church, and what paleontologists and philologists can tell us about our Adam and Eve. Doctrine teaches that original sin deprives us of the state of sanctifying grace at birth, which is restored through Baptism. Science appears to point to the actual commission of the sin perhaps 200,000 years ago by a Homo Sapiens couple.
