Please do not preach so much that you hide the truth that you do
not understand. You are a pawn in life€s society and you need to find an
answer. The reality is that humans are the only animals that ask the
question, "Why are we here". The answer is EVOLUTION. Don€t find some
fake belief, its the easy way out.
