I could be wrong, but if man came from a common ancestor we share with apes then that means the story of Adam and Eve being created ex nihilo is false. If Adam and Eve is false, then the Fall of Man is false, if the Fall of Man is false, then there was no reason for Christ to die..

Archeology + Evolution, yes. Evolution in itself does not.

Obvoiusly there needs to be some serious dancing around interpretations to make it fit. Of course it doesn't fit. but this ones just not fair. They must hate you. They hate me for me sure. They the change profiles and say sh!t to me, and challenge me on nonesone, our, try for senamatic cheats. Do you get that kind of backlash Rational? or is it just me. Am I really hard on them??
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

Even with a non-literal interpretation there is still the notion of humans, and only humans, have a soul, implying a distinct line between humans and non-humans, which evolution demolishes by placing all life on a spectrum.
