Matthew 19:4 and even Genesis 1:26-27 dib't tell _how_ God created mankind,
but does Genesis 2:7 sound like evolution, or personal, loving creation?
And Genesis 2:21-23 -- again personal, and very creative, showing us that
God's thoughts and His ways are very different from what we might imagine
(Isaiah 55:8-9).

He does not deceive us, in fact He tells us, in every way possible, that
we are dependent on Him, not just on time or chance or algorithms.
