“I do not regard Adam as related to – certainly not as descended from – the Neanderthal, Cro-Magnon, the Peking, or the Piltdown man. Adam came as divinely directed, created and empowered and stands as the patriarchal head of his posterity … He is born in the lineage of Deity, not in the posterity of the brute creation.”

James E. Talmage – 9 August 1931, Earth and Man (from the compilation: Science and Mormonism 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man, Salt Lake City, UT: Eborn Books, 2016, 344 & 348); Address Delivered in the Tabernacle, Salt Lake City, Utah, Sunday, August 9, 1931.
