I believe that there is a higher power, God, who at least started evolution. Scientists say that humans eventually evolved from bacteria found on Earth in "the beginning", but how did the bacteria, let alone Earth, first get here? There is evidence that the people who wrote and were in the Bible really lived and proof that the stories were real, so there must be some truth as to what it says. In Genesis, it says that God created everything in "6 days"- but that is what it translates to in English. There could've been another meaning in the Bible's original language, but also days to God could be different than days to humans, therefore I choose to also believe in what it says. What other explanation is there for "the great beginning"? I think that, as humans, even though we have a great capacity to think and do things, we will probably never know. There will always be a "why?", always a "how?", and although we are quite smart, I don't think there will ever be a full explanation of the world because there is always another dimesion and another before.

Exactly! There has to be a start somewhere.

"It makes me happy when I see teenage girls who clearly don't fit in, gives me hope that the future might still have personality" - Haley Williams

“You are not your bra-size, nor are you the width of your waist, nor are you the slenderness of your calves. You are not your hair color, your skin color, nor are you a shade of lipstick. Your shoe-size is of no consequence. You are not defined by the amount of attention you get from males, females, or any combination thereof. You are not the number of sit-ups you can do, nor are you the number of calories in a day. You are not your mustache. You are not the hair on your legs. You are not a little red dress. You are no amalgam of these things. You are the content of your character. You are the ambitions that drive you. You are the goals that you set. You are the things that you laugh at and the words that you say. You are the thoughts you think and the things you wonder. You are beautiful and desirable not for the clique you attend, but for the spark of life within you that compels you to make your life a full and meaningful one. You are beautiful not for the shape of the vessel, but for the volume of the soul it carries.”

I agree one hundred percent. Although I don't believe in god necessarily, there has to be some sort of higher power out there. How else would all of the meteorites and stars and galaxies that were there before earth and the big bang even come to be?
