    Just pointing out yet another Christian that has never actually read the bible, a point completely obvious to everyone with an IQ above 50.

    —So yes, a theory that requires me to somehow believe that the ability
    for sentience or sapience simply “happened out of nowhere” rather than
    we descended from a creature, or a being—

    Plato never appealed to scientific or materialistic arguments for dualism. You seriously need to take at least one philosophical course. Plato’s reasoning for dualism was based on reason and rationalism. Try also reading F.C. Copleston, for he addresses the distinction between Platonic dualism and St. Thomas Aquinas’s position on the soul (hylomorphic).

    There are Christians who accept the theory of evolution. You try and make a dichotomy between evolution and God by postulating why people believe in God over evolution. This is a misleading statement. You might also try reading St. Augustine or Origen.
