Evolution was not the issue of Luther's day. The geocentric earth model
was still in vogue in theological circles and Luther came down on the
wrong side of that, stating that Joshua made the sun stand still not the
earth. Which just shows that in issues of Bible and science, theologians
rarely get it right, even famous ones.
