Africans, Asians, Europeans, etc, we are all humans. Period.
God is one, whether Allah, etc, he is just one. But the paramount thing is that, God is not violent. God is not a terrorist.

They can and they do, but mutation is still random and proof is not absolute, nor is the path of random mutation something that can be predicted.
The real problem is that Creationists demand absolute proof. The nature of the Theory of Evolution is such that proof would be like trying to balance a wet spaghetti noodle upright on your nose. In theory, it's doable. In reality, it's such an absurd notion to try that "Evolutionists"(whic h I prefer to call scientific agnostics) really see no reason to indulge creationists who won't be satisfied anyway.
The logic game is that creationists expect science to prove God does NOT exist and that is logically impossible. Even though not a single shred of actual empirical evidence exists that can define and/or demonstrate the existence of a divine being, the onus is on science to prove that the voices in some people's heads are just their own delusions.
If science were to approach the question, it would probably only address the psychological aspects of those who need a god. Science simply does not invent a god to explain that which it does not understand by observation and logic. Understand the human mind? Still only theory, and only defined by statistical analysis. There will always be random exceptions, because that is the nature of living things.
Do you still insist on being able to find some hidden message that explains your reason for being? That's too bad, because choosing your own reason for being has as much value as serving those you care for. If you EVER find yourself doubting your altruism and indulging your selfish nature, accept that you've still make your choices in life and you are still accountable for them. There is no "Get out of Hell Free" card for the living or the dead.
Perhaps it's best not to let others make your choices for you, served with a sprig of religious parsley. If I am to be damned, I fully expect to know the reason for my punishment or life never had meaning to begin with. If the only answer is "lack of faith", all I can say is "faith in what? What ever existed in my world to compel me to choices other than the ones I made?"
Is it that old "you were told about God's word so you have no excuses!" rhetoric? I've been told many contradictory things about "God's word". My only possible choice is to abandon "faith" and FIND what truth can be found in the natural world... and there is Evolution, showing us a detailed story about how things came to be. Evolution does not tell us that we are born killer apes and that is our destiny. It only tells us that we are limited beings in a limitless universe, and that the only absolute is change.
Dying is not part of that program but it can't be avoided. My advice? Don't spend your life preparing for a death whose terms you have no ability to negotiate. What happens next is anyone's guess.
Excellent post

And who put the Nazis in power? Were the British, the Poles and the French voting in those election? Get a grip.

I'm not going to suggest that the Allied Powers where always right nor we they always fair to Germany. But the German people need to own up to their own mistakes. They made their choices and they have to live with their sins.
