"If we take human evolution seriously, and can no longer appeal to an historical Fall and the accompanying idea of Original Sin, then what is human sin and where does come from?"

I know this is just a blurb, but that question conflates several problems. Taking human evolution seriously doesn't necessarily negate any kind of historical Fall. And original sin is hardly the only way to conceive of such a fall's consequences. A more troubling and pertinent question, to me, is what evolutionary theory means for the origin of evil on earth. That is, I think you can have evolved humans experiencing some kind of historical fall, but I don't think that fall can explain adverse weather, disease, carnivorous animal species, and so on.
