If we look at other organisms still, such as salamanders, the atria are not separated but ventricles are. Still in others, neither are separated and if we look at even more, there are none of these yet circulation of blood and gases still occurs. These are all found in modern, living organisms. So saying everything came about by a freak accident is a bit ridiculous but it's perfectly plausible for things to have gradually changed in a way that was as beneficial as possible, as well as within reason.
Yes, I do think that 'things,' for lack of a better word, could have slowly 'evolved' over time. However, how did they start? You agreed that a freak accident wasn't very plausible, how do you think life started? Or do you believe life has always been?

hehe it worked (The quoting God thing)

Is that passage Jesus tells us that, once we believe in Him, he will reveal His presence to us. Therefore, those of us who are Christians would be able to sense Him around us more easily, while those who aren't would have a much more difficult time feeling Him.

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven


"The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost."

A friend is one who knows you, but loves you anyway.
