Firstly your understanding of evolutionary theory is flawed (I'm being very polite). Evolution doesn't work the way you describe in your post, this does not prove that god exists, it merely proves that you don't understand evolution.

Evolution is based upon the reproductive advantange conferred by random changes in the genome of an organism. It doesn't necessarily result in increased intelligence or superior emotions or even self awareness. And trust me, about 10% or more of the human race doesn't possess those traits either. It does however tend to create animals that are well suited to grow, reproduce and survive in their appropriate environment. And I think we can all agree that the rat as well as another old organism the roach, survive very well in their respective niches. And they do it Much better than we do.

As a race we devolve, because Science has negated many selective pressures. A good example of this is that the number of deaf people is on an exponential increase, now that society provides a means for them to meet and communicate. (since the invention of sign language.) Prior to sign language there was no practical way for deaf person to ever reproduce. Another example is familial hypercholesteremia (sp?). A person homozygous for this would be lucky to live past the age of 20, in the premedicine age. Now days such a person could live to have kids through the wonders of medical science, thus passing on the trait in spades.


And actually to answer a question you asked, and I just recently read the answer. Humans may be the way they are because of meat consumption. Apes are vegetarians, and this is a critical difference between apes and hominids. For some reason an anciet ancestor began eating meat. Now hominids didn't have any specialized traits for catching prey the way other carnivores do. So intellingence became a reproductive advantage. Because it conferred the ability to make tools and weapons. It's also reasonable to assume that some basic intelligence was already present at this stage, since it can be evidenced in our closest relative the chimp, who can learn words. So apparently this inttelligienc was used to forage meat. Otherwise we would have evolved differently and more along the lines of other predators who have basic animal intelligence, and make up for with other traits specialized for hunting. Additionally a longer developmental cycle and lifespan also became standard issue because of the time needed to master survival. There is also synergism here because adopting a meat based diet allowed for more leisure time, since meat is a more efficient meal, less time is spent foraging and eating.

Now I'm gonna use your crutch against you. If you beleive the "you can't make something out of nothing" excuse, that I hear so many christians ranting about. Then who created god? Because clearly you can't have something from nothing. Or can you?

There is no proof that god had anything to do with the bible. So I have no reason to beleive anything it says.

And frankly your whole diatribe about wanting more, even when you supposedly have it all, is a pretty standard christian thing. I hear this all the time from christians, and frankly I don't get it. All the non christians I know don't feel this way. I beleive it has something to do with the christian mindset. Maybe there a gene for being christian? It's plausible considering the historical christian desire to execute anyone that didn't agree with them.

And in fact I can't usually find stuff I'm looking for, until I stop looking for it.
