Did we miss something on diversity?

A plausible explanation

Enjoyable, realistic, I don’t know enough science to confirm its claims but it makes much sense. One can claim many errors in theology as the movie doesn’t show a salvation scene, nor is prayer finished in Jesus name, but faith evolves, thought by thought; though salvation is a an instant ( prayer) lordship is a lifetime. Bottom line, I enjoyed movie and suspect creation from Gods‘ view, and mans’, may be just as stated in movie.
