Invariably when an evolutionist speaks in such absolute terms ... right around the corner is another finding that further erodes the notion that evolution is a proven fact.
Jesus explains that salvation is rebirth as a spiritual creature. Such condition is decidedly not evolutional.
Prior to spiritual rebirth humans are mere animals, subject to all the laws of that fallen state, evolution chief among them.
There are, then, 2 states of existence. The one is animal consciousness. The other is God consciousness.
Those who choose to submit to the laws of evolution can not rise above them. Those who choose to submit to the laws of God are reborn as spiritual creatures, no longer subject to the laws of nature.
