Question of trust

In God we Trust: I ask in what, and why do you trust? Is this just something to say without meaning? Or is there a real sense that the trust is deserved? Is there is really any evidence for the existence of God anyway? Religion asks you not to question, after all, that is what faith is.

And yet we are asked to hang this broad brush and meaningless slogan in the city of Santa Clarita's logo.

Meaningless? Consider: We have yet to trust in God to eliminate war, genocide, poverty, race hatred, cancer, AIDs, dementia, child mortality, child pornography, child abduction, gender discrimination, infidelity, the devil, false gods, atheism, weapons of mass destruction, terrorist-like behavior, drug trades, drug abuse, global warming, homicide, shoplifting, tagging, house burglary, home repossession, speeding, death through drunk driving, baldness, ad infinitum.

God certainly doesnt deserve trust for not stopping the destruction of the World Trade Centers including 3,017 dead; the extermination of 6 million Jews and 70 million Allied and Axis deaths during World War II; more than 4,600 deaths of coalition soldiers and of one million Iraqi civilians during the current conflict; 191 deaths in the Madrid train bombing; 1,174,000 deaths in the Rwandan genocide; the current financial recession; GM going bankrupt, the sinking of the Titanic, Britney Spears and so on.

Man fabricated Creation as stated in Genesis, only to lose out to Charles Darwin and his Theory of Evolution that is accepted by all except those that believe the Earth is flat. There is as much proof of evolution as there is that the Earth is a near oblate spheroid.

If these people fabricated the Bible to control the minds of humanity, if these people made it up, should we really trust them when they say we'll survive our own deaths?

I challenge anyone to state something that can be attributed to an entity that cannot be proven to exist, one in whom or which we can really, truly trust.
