Just a heads up... Leave nasty or rude comments to yourself please. I'd gladly read thoughtful opinions though. And I'm not going to get into my opinion of science because that is a whole other issue I have.
I was outside this afternoon reading but I had my notebook with me just in case something struck me and boy was I struck. Here is what I was thinking:
I can't say for certain what's out there and what started us(but I'll have a better idea as I explore my thoughts.)
Creation? Evolution? Creatolution?
I believe in something larger than us. A higher power. God.
That belief alone has helped me more than any science book has.
Some, or many, would call me stupid for even questioning science. But what the hell do they know? What the hell do I know?
They call them "theories" for a reason, right?
How can we ever prove such a thing like where LIFE started?
I look back at my limited knowledge of history and the world and see less evolution but more progression.
We have progressed an incredible amount in science and technology.
We have progressed an incredible amount in human rights.
But has a telephone ever evolved into a car?
Or has a monkey ever evolved into anything that's not monkey like?
*Although my nice sweet baby kitten who fell asleep in the palm of my hand has evolved into a ferocious beast.*

The odds of a baby fully developing from fertilization to embryo to brand new baby are very small. There is so much that can go wrong in such a complex process. If an embryo(designed to grow into a person), in a safe womb(designed to hold this embryo and nurture it and provide it with what it needs to become a baby) has a small chance of surviving how on "earth" did we evolve from a little squiggle in some body of water in a continually volatile environment? Was each moment in time, each temperature change, each storm, each ANYTHING, exactly what that little squiggle needed to evolve into what made me today?
Was life a little zygote all those "millions of years ago" that was in the perfect environment for each stage to develop into what life is today?
Is Earth our womb?
Where we each have a certain percentage of making it out? Being born after we die? Are we all little zygotes fighting that percentage of "life miscariages" to hopefully be born into whatever comes after death?
Will what we believe in REALLY make a difference in the after instead of the now?
