ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the real existence of God. He cites his confusion concerning God's presence on the Earth and rather believes in the theory of naturalist Charles Darwin pertaining to fossils as the origin of man. The author admits being an atheist and believes that his life has a purpose in a Darwinian sense, which is to preserve or prolong the survival of the human race, as well as to help awaken others particularly the young people from the dangerous nightmare of religion.
