Natural Law in Romans 2:14-15?

Some intimate here, and state elsewhere, that “The concept of Natural Law evolved purely from Christianity,” appealing to Romans 2:14-15.

They say “all men have the “law [of God] written in their hearts” Rom 2:15.” In no way does Scripture say that.

The verses, if they were to quote them properly, read:

“14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;”

In fact, the Greek NT reads: “τὸ ἔργον τοῦ νόμου γραπτὸν ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις αὐτῶν.”

It does NOT say, as they erroneously claim, “ὁ νόμος [τοῦ θεοῦ] γραπτὸν ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις αὐτῶν.”
