Do Moderate Christians Need an "Adam"?

Jesus and Adam  Previously, I discussed the idea that we can now definitively show that there was no single couple from which all of humanity descended, and discussed a few points made by ProfMTH, namely that Paul references Adam in same way he references Jesus.
