Theology Cannot - Does Not - Resolve Itself in Darwinian Exposition

Many apologies, but this one was too hard to not comment on. If we read the heading, one would suppose that some form of theological expression of one's obedience to the LORD Almighty God was in the offing, but nay, a Darwinian exposition is found instead. Whether one follows Jesus Christ, or claims the tenets of the Islamic Prophet, are we to understand that a comparison of mankind is to be made with a rationalization that apes can demonstrate human reasoning, and not just act on the impulses the Creator has instilled? Every animal has the instinct to search out and forage for its sustenance; only man can make the assessment as to whether today he wants an orange, or would prefer the apple because it is in season.

Now as to the axiomatic notion of self existence, this is patently against the Hebrew Holy Bible, and philosophically unsupportable except in evolutionary dialogue. By making such supposition, there is yet to be found any truly inarguable evidence that can withstand the Biblical witness of a Creator and His control of a world in rebellion.

Now, it is the realm of Islam that tries to negate the Truth of the Hebrew Holy Bible, doing so with the demonically inspired efforts of those who deny Almighty God and His right to be called the Most High, for true Christians will declare the truth of Jesus Christ as LORD, and rightfully so. This does not change, even though there is the maximum effort by the anti-Christian coalition to influence societies weakened by their consorted denial of Almighty God against His witness of Jesus Christ. Hence, there is the debate on whether or not one needs niqabs and burkhas, to be answered only if Islam becomes the reigning theology before the return of Jesus Christ as the King of Israel.

In that vein it is asked, does one come to Europe (or any other location for that matter) to teach Arabic for multi-cultural reasons, or to define the practical reasoning for wanting to learn Arabic because it is the purist Islamic contention that the Quran can only be fully understood in its original language of Arabic? How important will that be when Jesus Christ is in Jerusalem?

In looking back at the original point of the previous writer's opening premise, let us be reminded that a reasoning man did take a fruit from a tree that was forbidden, in doing so causing the immediate demise of his spiritual identity, that of death and separation from Almighty God. In the plan following the fall in Genesis, the Creator provided His Son, Jesus Christ as a ransom for the ensuing sinfulness of humanity, that His death on the cross would be the payment of the death penalty for all who would pray and ask for forgiveness in His Name. No such provision was made for the apes, for they have no such soul, neither the need to ride on the back of an ass to reach for their sustenance, demonstrated by the design of the hand-like shape of their feet to allow them to reach places somewhat more difficult for a human. How's that for Supernatural design!
