I personally find it hard to believe that such complex biological life forms could evolve out of a primordial soup. Life evolved from single celled organisms. Yeah right!

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

The Judeo/Christian/Muslim God is not the only possible God there is.
Many cultures (and other people) believe in a supreme creator of the universe. This supreme creator may be a little more hands-off that the God from the Judeo-Christian-Muslim Bible...
...i.e., this God set the universe in motion -- the WHOLE universe -- and isn't specifically "creating" dinosaurs, rabbits, human, space aliens, etc. Those are just by-products of the universe that this particular God created.
In this model of "God as the hands off, yet supreme creator", there can still be a mystical aspect and an afterlife (just like the Judeo-Chritian-Muslim model) -- or not.
