I thought that I made it obvious that I try not to believe in anything. Once a person commits to believing in something they close the door for further learning.
I have strong evidence through deep metaphysical thinking that there was not a moment of creation within the context of time that we live our daily lives in. I suspect that the replacement of empty space with "mass" brings into being all else. By "mass" I don't mean the physical definition of mass but simply "fully-occupied-space". This fully-occupied-space is an intrusion to completely-empty-space and behaves as though it should not be intruding -- i.e., a squeeze force or gravity. Also, time relates to the intrusions. Thus we have no time in existence at all when nothing is intruding and as soon as something is intruding we suddenly have "measurable" time. The more the displacement of empty space, the more inter-relations of time are at play and therefore the slower things take. I've probably totally lost you at this point, but I hope to write a book on the subject one day.
From there, evolution comprises the divine plan holistically of particle behavior -- sub-atomic, atomic, molecular, cellular, organisms, socially, globally, -- get the picture.
There, does that help you any?
