I have no real position on this topic. I wasn't there. I don't know. It doesn't affect me a whole lot either way. The various fields of study certainly seem to indicate that naturalistic evolution is more probable (without remotely explaining abiogenesis), but evolutionary theory definitely has some evidentiary holes/problems that aren't often discussed (which explains my hesitancy to embrace either theory). Thankfully, the Church has abstained from the question, stating only that we must believe with Divine and Holy Faith that we had two first parents (and not a common group -- which makes perfect logical sense even under a Darwinian account) and that God directly imbued these parents with immortal souls (which also makes sense -- a simple spiritual substance can't "evolve").

That said, here are some talks (thanks to Phil Porvaznik) for those interested in the topic:
