More Walke on Evolution

Bruce Waltke has given several clarifying points concerning the recent Biologos Foundation video on evolution and the church. I, for one, am thankful that Waltke was given the opportunity to clarify the things said in the video (knowing that organizations often takes things out of context), but am still wondering how any Reformed man can say that "creation by the process of evolution is a tenable Biblical position." I thought that Theistic Evolution was not a viable option for ministers who accept the principles of analogia fidei and analogia Scriptura. On what basis can you affirm a single historical Adam that comes about by process of evolution? How can you distinguish between man and animal in this system? How can you say that man will not become something other than what he is now? How can you say that one man is the representative for the entire human race, if he came into being by process of creation by evolution? Does only one animal evolve at such a rate that a single man appeared so that God stopped the evolutionary process from occurring any further with regard to other animals becoming man? These are the questions I still am left with, and the reason why I am adamantly against the suggestion that "creation by the process of evolution is a tenable Biblical position."
