The Bible has something in it that says, roughly, "It's pretty bad if you foul up. God doesn't like that. But if you put someone you're teaching
on the wrong path, boy, are you going to get your rear end kicked like you can't even imagine."
But, if you realize that I'm only a guy walking through life just like you are, maybe my thoughts might help break the boredom if nothing else.
Accepting the image of God as depicted by a religion, and accepting the teachings of a religion, were pretty big giant steps for me. I couldn't take
those steps, and since I assume everyone in the world is just like me, I don't understand how anyone else can either. (Including you and your dearly
My training, the way I think, my personality, all lead me to ask "where is the simplest, easiest place to start?" If I can take a step or two along
the trail, maybe I'll see something that makes the trail easier. I started with the surprising fact that I'm here. Or, rather, that anything's
I started with the question "How did this get started?" I'd heard all about the Big Bang theory, how the Cosmic Egg exploded in an incredible
explosion sending mass and energy out in all directions which led to the formation of planets and everything else. The "Egg" had all of the matter
of the Universe crammed into it. It was under great pressure, and when it blew, it was the largest explosion imaginable.
If I understand correctly, there are still scientists that think this is the best explanation available, although new ones are being explored.
After awhile, the question entered my head "And just where did this "Egg" come from? What "Cosmic Chicken" produced this "Cosmic Egg?"
That's when I got the answer from science that completely convinced me of the limitations of science and opened all sorts of new doors to another
world. Science said "We can tell you what happened one hundred billionth of a second after the Big Bang, but we can't tell you anything about what
was there before the Big Bang."
Here was the problem for me. How did the first particle, the first tiny bit of energy, come into the Universe. I was convinced that there was a time
when there was absolutely nothing. No energy, no matter, nothing. Then, there was something.
I can't tell you how big a shock to me that was. Visualizing it is very difficult, if not impossible. There was no space, no time, anything you can
think of, wasn't there. More barren and empty than any desert, or piece of space. There was no nature, no laws of physics or mathematics, the
emptiness was more complete than we can imagine.
And from that vast nothing, came something. Can you see that that violates every rule we have? There was nothing to cause that particular something
to come into being, and without a cause, things don't happen. The rule: matter can not be created or destroyed was instantly violated.
But those rules can't be violated, so another conclusion was drawn. We didn't have those rules until something came into being. How can there be
laws of physics when there are no particles moving or stationary. The idea that matter cannot be created or destroyed was waiting for there to be
some matter that it could apply to.
Through similar kinds of thoughts, I came to the conclusion that the cause for the Universe had to come from outside the Universe. Nature can't
create itself. The Universe can't create itself. And as far as parallel or multiple Universes go, none of those Universes could have created
themselves. Something had to start things going.
Can you see how big this is? There is "something" completely outside any existence we can imagine in our Universe or any Universe.
Well, I'm thirsty again, even if I didn't say a word about religion. I just talk to much. More later, if this sort of thing is of any value.
