    Reading vs 21, I began to think what was that wisdom of God by which d world was supposed to know God as God? Then it dawned on me that d Bible was referring to d wisdom of creation. Romans Chp 1 says "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.20 For the invisible things of him from d creation of the world are clearly seen". Evolution is satanic.
