Look at a DNA strain, and look at matter at an atomic and molecular level with all the mathematics involved and say with certainty "it is an accident." That's one amazingly complex accident! Anyway.
A comment on Welfare. It should only be there long enough to get someone back on his feet. Then it's time to get a job or find some way to support yourself. Here is an idea I have for Welfare or whatever it would be more approprately called - You pick these people up, you help them out with food, shelter, etc., but you don't forget to set them straight, and "help them to help themselves" and then you put them back into the game of life ready to go. Don't let them become a parasite on society. Of course there may be some individuals who can't care for themselves, so in that case they would need help.
