I don't go to church anymore and really haven't for years. I do believe in a higher power. There is no way that things such as eye sight, nerve functions and a million other things evolved in a vacuum. It defies logic that something like the pancreas could just evolve knowing it's beta cells would need to release some substance called insulin to regulate blood sugar. You are retarded if you believe there is no inteligence behind all of this. What inteligence that is is up to you. Atheist are more idiotic than religious people.
