I do not believe…

I do not believe in evolution; at least not as it is understood by science today, nor do I believe in any religion or spiritual being. What is apparent to me is that we are dust; we breathe, we die, we rot; just as every other being does on this planet we share. It's a simple fact to see that air alone has us connected and this goes for those in the sea, the air, and the land. We all need this one essential element a long with so many other factors that keep each and every one of us alive.
Now where does humanity stand in a world where even the plankton in the sea is needed for our very existence? Are we better than one species or another simply because of our minds and capabilities? Is there more to the apes in the trees? Do they know what we know, but choose to live in a coexisting manner where war is not a creation utilized for greed?
If we could only see the universe is in each and every molecule that creates us, creates the animals, creates the plants; then and only then can we see each of us must unite with neighbor and friends to see we are a whole. Together and only together are we the almighty god so many have created fiction over.

Saying "I do not believe in evolution; at least not as it is understood by science today" is like saying "I do not believe in gravity; at least not as it is understood by science today."

The theory and fact of evolution as understood by science today in no way precludes or refutes anything else you said in the post—one can believe that we are "dust," completely interconnected with every other living thing through air, yet still recognize that the mechanism of evolution is what produced the wide variety of amazing life forms on this planet—flora and fauna, plankton and human—of which you speak.
