Without getting too technical at this point, the Bible teaches that
salvation pertains to the whole creation, ie., see John 3:16. Human
beings, a part of that creation, will also share in cosmic salvation. The
work of Jesus encompasses the whole of created reality. Perhaps, the point
in human evolution when a recognition of God and a response to God's call
could be made was the point when humankind began to know God.
