Sin Is Evil, Right?

If sin is evil, then my belief that evolution is fundamentally evil, the survival of the strongest, is consistent. In evolution progress is made by war between species and within species and death is the recourse of the weaker species. So with this worldview, sin and evolution go hand in hand and sin has existed from the beginning.

My interpretation of the Adam & Eve parable is that the Garden of Eden is equivalent to heaven where there is no death, where souls exist. So god made souls before giving them physical bodies. The souls attached to human forms on earth at some point in evolution and the human forms suffered sin and death.

As far as the bible and evolution is concerned, the creation of the world according to Genesis is exactly the same as evolutionary theory if you interchange two of the days. Perhaps the Rabis did not remember it quite right, it was oral law for such a long time. Or perhaps god decided to let the mistake stand as a lesson to us to not take what men write down as literal truth. What do you think?
