    Maybe when you look at the way the whole world works, nature, life, reproduction, death, every nuance of Earth, it always strikes me that it takes a great deal more faith to not believe that God created our universe than to believe in God. I know many scientists and nearly all of them actually believe very much in God. Many actyually believe that when life went from single cell to complex multi-cell reproduction was the time when God put his head above the parapet, so to speak. Just to look at a single cell and see that it knows how to join together with other cells to produce a heart, arm, leg, part of the body waste system etc is mind boggling. And you really think this all developed by chance? What faith you have in randomness.

    Good points Viggy.
    I'm a believer in simple evolution, given enough chimps and typewriters one could re-write the complete works of Shakespeare.
    How we got to chimps and typewriters is a whole other conversation about the possibilities of an infinate universe lol

    Seriously though, what people tend to forget now that Western religion seems to be fading is the divinity of the individual.
    By divinity I mean that which we cannot explain, the agnostic view not the atheistic, the spark that makes humans so different.
    We have forgotten that we are such a rare and fragile thing, that those who have corrupted the ideals of individual divinity for personal gain now rule us.
    We have forgotten that each and every one of us needs to not get caught up in our own self importance or needs.
    As JFK said, "But wherever we are, we must all, in our daily lives, live up to the age-old faith that peace and freedom walk together."
