I do not understand how people religious or not can not accept the fact that evolution is real that is how we created? How do you believe and waste your time preying to a God that does not exist?

Well for one thing I can't recall ever "preying" on a God. I leave that to the predators. Now sometimes when I feel like I am over come with things or people I care about are overcome with things I do "pray" to God for a little strength and help.

A God or Gods may or may not exist. But since it's not a scientific concept there's no way to tell. So it's no more valid than the Matrix, Flying Spaghetti Monster or Cosmic Sheep.

Either way evolution happened. However while many theists have no problem with evolution, some prefer to place limits on their allegedly all-powerful Creator.

Just an observation but lately I'd say your placebo appears to be wearing off. I suggest you increase your regime of putting your hands together in your attempt to convince your deity to change its mind.

Or alternatively you could try thinking.

May the Great Fart of the Cosmic Sheep bless you and your hands!

I think we are part of a 10 trillion dollars experiment. To see what we all want. To see what is worth your time. To see what you need.
