Which would be pretty darned hard.
I couldn't even begin to say how we got here or where we came from but i do have one thing that is driving me crazy and that is if you go by evolution how did man get the EGO?
It seems (just my opinion) is the biggest problem for mankind is the EGO.
If we go with evolution how did this come about to progress at such a rate that man will cut off his nose to spite his face so to speak for the sake of his EGO?
If we go with God then why would God give man an EGO knowing that it is self destructive and his creation is doomed from the beginning and how could he not see the outcome of his creation if he is all knowing? so why create something to see it destroy itself?
I am just a simple person trying to understand and never asked to be here and given a choice i would prefer to have never existed but i am here not of my own free will so if God gave man free will how is it that i don't have a choice to be here or not from the very beginning? Why are we forced to enter this existence?
If we go back to evolution when and why did the same cells that created man just stop and when and why did fish stop coming out of the water turning into apes and when and why did apes stop becoming man?

I think you're correct to criticize those who claim absolutely certainty, but I don't think that they are the ones we should pay much attention to when it comes to these discussions.
