Being an athiest, I dismiss 'God' pretty easily. This is based mainly on the fact that I am an engineer and scientist at heart, so I like to see evidence. In a nutshell, I see plenty of evidence supporting darwin, and none supporting the bible. I was bought up as a roman catholic, when to private catholic schools so have been surrounded by this crap all my life. However, to this date, I have never really sat down and pondered the whole philosophical 'God has a master plan' thing and 'God knows each and every one' and the praying to god thing. I never did get it, but never really put much though into it, I was far more interested in the amazing things that we see in evolutionary biology, and I can see those progressive links that darwin discusses. Anyway, I was on my yacht the other day, anchored up of moreton island having a few quite rums by myself and marvelling at the dophins swimming around my boat. I started thinking about the religious argument. The more I think about now, the more stupid is seems. I just cant get over the fact that people actually beleive this stuff. Something like 7 billion people on this planet and some person has a plan for each and every one, as well as listening to prayers and crap. Seriously, give me a break. I just dont get how people can worship something as a person, when that thing does not exist. I then got to thinking about darwin and how so many stupid people survive these days, and breed. Flies in the face of darwin i though. But no, because evolution will run its course, and you and I will never see it. The human race will indeed become extinct one day, and there is not a single thing you or anyone else can do to stop it. We are the smartest creatures so far, but we are not smarter than evolutionary biology. Someone should point this out to the greens too.
