I'd say that I have confidence that a rational explantion exists. I leave faith and belief to the folks who believe in ghosts and magic.
I always use lightning and thunder, that is say 500 or1000 years ago humans did not know what caused them so we attributed it to the gods / god, now days we know exactly what causes them.
everything else is just like that, we simply dont know, YET, what causes some things but there is no evidence that the gods / god caused them
For a while I had the misconception that Natural Selection ended and humans were the finalists. Nature continues its quest for perfection through genetic alterations and mutations. The only difference is that humans interfere with nature to maintain the status quo. I heard that dolphins were once land animals that returned to the sea. I don't know if that's true or theory, but it's possible that if humans didn't invent medicine, we might be an entirely different looking animal. Once in a while, nature produced a horrific mutation, often with the help of humans, that proves devastating to the environment.
Xians have for decades been trying to replace evolution in public school science courses with the Genesis account: creation in six days, etc. The courts keep on rejecting their attempts.
The few xians who keep up with real science say that not-yet-explained events are the work of their god. Some evolutionists say these xians are plugging gaps in scientific knowledge with a "god of the gaps."
Xians have tried creationism, scientific creationism, intelligent design, 'teach the controversy' and more. We can be sure of one thing: their explanations will evolve further.
Well, when the animals were dying off, I assumed it was some new superbug killing them off. >.> After all, new diseases are always occurring.
As for when weird shiznit happens in my life, I will joke that "if there is a god, I'm clearly his personal sitcom." But I just think it's an annoying coincidence. I'm trying to think of something that clearly cannot be explained for me that I witnessed firsthand... But I can't think of anything right now.
