Evolution is basically what we humans have discovered for ourselves. We look around and make conclusions from our surroundings. That's what science is, foundational empiricism, no bias i.e. ancient scriptures/sunday school.

"Eat and drink and be merry. For tomorrow we die."
How true. I suppose that is a downside to believing that you evolved from a speck of dust, but how could you fool yourself otherwise? There is some truth in the phrase 'Ignorance is bliss'. I sometimes wish that i had been born stupid, perhaps then I wouldn't have such a terrible fear of death. There is a fate worse than hell, and that is to cease to exist as if nothing ever happened.
I envy a religious person who has not yet been exposed to the truth, they still have purpose in their lives [though perhaps misplaced]. For me, it is just as likely that God is evil as it is that God is good or that there is no God. The only thing that I know, is that I cannot know, or at least perhaps until after death which is why i believe in nothing.

Yes, I misused the word truth. Perhaps we are all merely figments of our own imaginations!
