Where Have All the Scholars Gone?

Back in the 1960’s the folk song trio, Peter, Paul and Mary, took a Pete Seeger song, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and made it a popular protest song for that decade.  After watching the YouTube interview with Dr. Bruce Waltke I am asking the same question (with the same emotion of protest).  First, Tremper Longman questions the historical Adam (see my earlier post) and now an outstanding OT scholar such as Waltke suggests that if the church does not embrace evolution, the church could legitimately be considered a cult!  Waltke believes that the evidence for evolution is overwhelming (although he does not cite any evidence that would move a scholar away from a literal understanding of Genesis 1-3). Where have all the scholars gone—not back to the Bible.
