Is evolution part of buddhism, or can evolution explain buddhism. I'm finding it difficult to express my question so l'll give examples. The buddhists reasons given by me here might be wrong because I'm an amateur learning it, but I have given them to better express my question.
1. Why do we have feeling of lust?
Evolution reason: Simply to reproduce
Buddhism reason: Due to our ignorant mind
2. Why do we like to have big luxurious items, and get praise and respect from society?
E reason: More people like us mean better chance we have of survival
B reason: Due to the constant cravings of our mind
3. Why are we constantly been reborn and suffering?
E reason- Because all the things we do is to ensure reproduction continues to occur
B reason- Due to our ignorant mind
See where I am going here. Is buddhism and evolution just 2 different ways of expressing the same idea or are they different. Examples I find some concepts easier to understand via evolution than buddhism, vise versa also for some other concepts. Thanks a lot
