Comment: I believe in evolution

(See in situ)

I believe in evolution

to an extent, or maybe adaptation. For example, a pack of dogs get stranded in a remote freezing island, decades later, they are found to have "adapted" to the different climate by "evolving" into a thicker haired breed. But what I cannot seem to understand is if Man is here because of evolution, why is he the only creature on this rock that can do math? Or heck, something much simpler, starting a fire? Why is it that only man has "evolved" to the point we were able to harness fire?
