Where is truth?

When I stop expecting truth in the public conversations of our time, this declaration in Psalm 57 directs my attention to where truth is.

"I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing to You among the nations.
For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens,
And Your truth unto the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all the earth."

Psalm 57:9-11

In the Beginning, What or Who?

Which statement is the more reasonable?

* In the beginning an impersonal force sometimes called "evolution" took nothing and made it into the present universe. Or,

* In the beginning a supernatural person whom we call "God" created the heavens and the earth.

On a simpler level, is it more reasonable to maintain that the device we call "smartphone" came into existence with or without the intervention of human hands and minds?
