EWTN Catholic Q&A
Question from Anthony on 08-20-2012:

I saw on TV that the popular athiest, Richard Dawkins, was doing an interview on the subject of Adam. He also said that the Catholic Church no longer proclaims that Adam was God's first human creation. I haven't heard this in my Church and I attend every Sunday and Holy Day. Is he just trying to discredit the Catholic Church or has this been proclaimed by the hierarchy?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 08-22-2012:

Dear Anthony,

Dawkins is mistaken. Adam is still the first human creation a far as the Church is concerned.
