2001: you can't just type an entire question into Google and expect what you're looking for to come back...you need to use keywords
2020: millions of videos and thousands of channels asking hyperbolic, 'shower-thought' questions and then answering them

HATE HOW THEY NEVER GIVE GLORY TO GOD! Evolution is still a theory buddy so stop shoving that stuff around like it's law. God is provable it's just people don't want HIM to be real so they ignore any facts in thier willful ignorance.
