You do not become moral by taming the wild.
You do not become moral by bearing a child.
Moral beings are those who by God understand
whether matter or manner is left by their hand.
And the power to do so by Adam began.
He was made to see everything present in man,
to see heaven and earth, to see growth and see beast,
to see fish and fowl urging him, to say the least.
God created the man from the grounds of the earth.
Adam learned what both matter and manner was worth.
I think he was not one but that God did let fall
as The Lord did see proper to discipline all.

But Adam was the one who "got it". Never doubt the Old Testament wisdom.
