Darwin - Crane Operator

I don't find Darwin's theory bleak or pessimistic at all. I can see how it can even be used in conjunction with the theory of God. If you see Him as the Deists of the Enlightenment Age saw Him, as the great clockmaker, then it's not a big leap to say that He created Life in the form of a single-celled organism and then sat back and watched the course it took.

Personally, I don't believe in God. I like evidence (what can I say? I'm a crane lover, not a skyhook lover - cranes are real, you can count on them being there), and there's not much evidence that I can see to support His existence.
