Title: How did sin enter the world? In dialogue with natural science

Author: Gunnar Innerdal

This article suggests an answer to how sin entered the world if current natural science makes it unlikely that it happened in the way told in traditional narratives of Adam and Eve. After reviewing some current alternatives, I argue that the best available way is to understand sin as a contingent historical reality arising through a process connected to the evolutionary rise of human beings.
