Looks like Geese were Velociraptors. Maybe JesusClaus can comment?

Neanderthal Jesus would be floored by this discovery.

I put off a little too much sarcasm there but yes blasphemy is how I feel about the evolution process. If we are evolving into more complex creatures wouldn't we be slightly more "advanced" than the form Jesus came in? Did he come to save our primordial ancestors or only the state of creature he came as? Are we done evolving or did he come to save the next form of life we will become?
Butterflies appear before flowers to pollinate.
Day three all vegetation and day four all animals and I am the one giving darn fine blasphemy.

I don't think that the evolution process is "blasphemy", but I do think that it has its problematics — IOW, the hard demands of Reality-as-is won't dissolve into the Evolutionist framework without residue.

As you so wisely note, there has to be some "stable element" of Man — not only so that we can be the same nature ("the form of Man") as Jesus — but so that you can be the same nature as yer mom and so that we can all live on the earth as brothers. If we're not all brothers, unqualified nationalism and tribalism might start making sense.

As to your last point, it's not a 'might', but an 'absolutely'. This is the (evolutionary) logic that was chugging along full steam pre-1940s.

It is still chugging along. "Identity politics" is just a politically tolerable term for "racism."

There is a strange paradigm of "intersectionality" still thriving in our universities: It states that everyone is a racist, even if he doesn't know it. That dogma can only exist within a larger paradigm with rates every race, class, and gender as "more fit" or "less fit" for participation in society.
“The Declaration of Independence dogmatically bases all rights on the fact that God created all men equal; and it is right; for if they were not created equal, they were certainly evolved unequal. There is no basis for democracy except in a dogma about the divine origin of man.” ― G.K. Chesterton.

We're all created physically and mentally unequal, which surprise surprise is what one would expect from biological processes. You can dogmatically declare us all morally or spiritually equal wrt the Divine without stubbornly refusing to accept biological fact.
