Is there anyone fundamentalist religious that only believe in Adam and Eve as a true creation of God? If so, what do they think about paleantology and our ancestrals bones?

The story of Adam and Eve is a rather sad fairy tale created thousands of years ago by bronze age tribesmen. They had not a whit of knowledge about the origin of man or of life. The story of the Adam and Eve was the best they could come up with at the time. It is the height of silliness to continue to embrace it. The story of this universe, this planet and the life on it is full of wonder and magic. Evolution is only part of the story but it is a wonderful and amazing part. How silly to reject hard-won knowledge in favour of a fairy tale thousands of years old.

To my knowledge most Christians all over the world do not have problem with scientific findings. It's mostly some Christians in the US that has problem with evolution. By the way, am a Christian and I believe in evolution. There are many others. For example, Francis Collins, the National Director of Human Genome Project is a Christian and he believes in evolution.

The most diplomatic answer is nothing is proven... and what is not proven, it can be true, as the opposite of it didn't proven either. As for me, I don't believe in the story about Adam and Eve, because it doesn't give answer to how the other people come to alive after them, but maybe from the point of view of the Bible it doesn't matter. Maybe you only need the meaning behind the story. As for paleontology... who knows, it's just another story. The similarity itself just doesn't approve that we came from something else.
