The story of the Garden of eden and how humans came to know good and evil kind of shows that they evolved to higher thinking.

of course, i understand that the common definition of evolution is random genetic mutations within a population over a long period of time being passed on through sexual selection.

With this reading, it would mean evolution is the direct result of Satan.

I'm okay with this.

Genesis doesn't prove anything, because there's no way to independently verify the things that happen within it.

Topic title should read: "This thread proves Wu_Zonghai has no clue about the basics of evolution?"

First post should read: "Yes."

The story of the Garden of eden and how humans came to know good and evil kind of shows that they evolved to higher thinking.

They already possessed higher cognitive abilities like speech, Theory of Mind, memory, et cetera. According to most evolutionary biologists and/or neuroscientists (de Waal and Dennett just to name some), this would already mean they possessed sense of morality.

Also, Genesis never has and never will prove anything. Ever.

Well, it proves, to an extent, that some humans are capable of believing that a talking serpent convinced a woman to eat fruit and get kicked out of a magical garden.

Eating an apple VS natural selection

You're right, Wu. They're exactly the same thing. No relevant differences at all.

Since when was natural selection ever natural? Since when was it accepted that the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil an apple?

What if it was really mushrooms or some other psychedelic?
