Up until the time of David Hume and Arthur Schopenhauer, people believed in a Creator, because origins of life couldn't be proven through science i.e., without a supernatural force being responsible for the propagation of life. If science hadn't proven that organisms can reproduce themselves, then divine intervention wouldn't be so farfetched today, or would it?

Good answer. I'm a Christian, so I don't believe in evolution; I believe in God! Actually, you gave me an idea for another question.
You can be a Christian AND believe in evolution. Actually it is the Creationists that sometimes make me doubt the existence of a Creator with their fake science.
What i was trying to say is how can someone "really" believe in evolution, if all they've done is read it from books etc?..How does a person have an actual "realization" moment on a subject, when they've done no experiments themselves at all?.
God may be the missing link behind evolution. Who knows?
