Evolution Or Creation? (Darwin Versus Haydn)

Rating: 5.0
It was a discourse that went through the night
With both insisting that their views were right

Man was adamant that Darwin was wrong
That all were lies without evidence strong
Man's beginnings came from Adam and Eve
And evolution were just tall tales weaved
The problems first came with an apple tree
Then Cain killed Abel out of jealousy
Banished from Eden for the guilt he bore
And all these be truth from biblical lore

Thanks Tom, Strife is in all species, but can be said to be the survival of the fittest.

The picture is an evidence that the man shown in it can.t be a descendant of the animal shown in it. Perhaps there are two types of lives on this planet, one is naturally evolved and other one is a planted life.
