                                4:21 "evolution cracked the nanotechnology billions of years before us" that's dumb. you can't crack science by chance without an aware being. biology did never eliminate God from existence. It is only proving his existence over and over. BTW, Discovering that something could have happened by chance doesn't mean it DID happen by chance.

                                              El tamaño y el peso no importan, es la aerodinámica, esto es como tirar un lápiz a la misma altura y a la misma vez que un perro, caerán igual, con la única diferencia que el lápiz no se partirá, el perro sí, aparte de la posibilidad de morir.
