Evolution states that man evolved

From the lower forms of animal. Is this true.

Theology states that we are the children

Of Adam and Eve, I haven’t a clue

To sell an idea or concept of importance,

Only means that the brains of the

World rule with assurance.

Scientific theory explains away

The beauty of it all,

And so the temptation of man brought

About a mystical fall.

Did Darwin’s theory appeal to

Only the intellectual classes

Was the Garden of Eden just an

Example of the angelic masses?

The logic of the scientist

And the theologian of nature devout,

Are the saleman of today

With plenty of clout?
