Thank You David Attenborough

For so eloquently explaining why so many people like myself have difficulty in believing in an all loving god.

In an interview where he said he gets hate mail from creationists for not crediting god, he said

"They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds. I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator."
