Have you any explanations for existence that don't sound just as looney. You haven't provided anything that doesn't sound just as looney to me or to yourself. Is this semantics or just me ?
No your not unworthy. Forgive me if my home life shows up in my posting at times . Apologies.
No problem, we all have our moments. You don't strike me as being a spiteful person. There's enough of that in the World and I'm sure neither you nor I want to add to it.

Evolution is an observable fact, it didn't happen overnight, the planet is over 4 billion years old. That's a massive amount of time for our evolution from single cell organisms to occur.

I doubt anyone really knows the ultimate truth of how or why existence came about. We do know that the old testament/genesis account is basically codswallop, however.
This is why people disregard genesis, without giving better explanation. They see one for the completely unsupported and ridiculous nonsense it is, without knowing the real answers.
A better question mighty be, how could otherwise nice, intelligent and sane people believe the genesis account? There is an answer to that, I believe (indoctrination).

The problem is the lack of education in third world countries and America has created a breeding ground for religious fanatics to come to the fore and exert their influence in others. Nobody has any evidence for a god but religion is an old tool that still works in controlling the masses apart from people with free minds such as you and I.

Are you absolutely retarded? I think it is more likely that deep down you actually know that there is no god. Blind faith is a very flimsy ideology.
can appreciate how atheists can come across as smug and condescending but when we hear and read some of the complete and utter jaw dropping garbage religious people spew from their mouths I'm afraid it is easy to feel that we have the higher ground. After all our beliefs our based on heavily researched proven facts which is the complete opposite of the bible.
