[Quranic Reflection]: Evolution

[Quranic Reflection]: Evolution
One of the most haunting verses in the Quran is the statement of God that he taught humans how to speak:

Quote:Sura 55, The Quran:

https://quran.com/55/1?translations=20
Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

(1) The Most Compassionate
(2) taught the Quran,
(3) created humanity,
(4) ˹and˺ taught them speech.

Actually; speech was the turning point differing humankind from apes.
This verse haunted me very much because biologically this is what we know today: if we follow Evolution then human ancestors didn't know how to speak, but they were able to develop the skill.

God taught them, and his method might be so long or so short, depending on his will.

Nope.

So, while it's a nice "How did things get the way they are?"

It's a pale wraith compared to the long history reaching back into the past.

Not at work.

God, this was retarded, even by your own standard, and that already is as low a 1mm above the carpet.

Exactly. God's acts might take so many millenniums, his creation of things might even take millions of years.
Yes he taught our specie how to speak, the time it took is obsolete.

Judging by the conclusion is what matters.

There are plenty of mythologies in which a god or gods grants humans either the power of speech or diversity of speech.  I don't see this particular Quranic reflection as being notably unique.

So your claim that they developed speech on their own is wrong. Thanks for clarifying. Do you often make false claims like this?
How do you know he did this. Because your magic book says so?! Other magic books make the similar. Why are they wrong? I bet because their magic is bullshit....you know.

Like i said. Humans speak. Book claims invisible friend taught them so speak. Why is book corret? Because it says so, and because humans speak. Facepalm
Arent you the least bit embarrassed to make up such absurd bullshit. Hilarious How anyone can be so ignorant and waste his time with such nonsense is beyond me.
