Evolution seem's to be a religion of Anarchy to me. I mean, if I can trick you, steal from you, get you in your sleep, etc..... Then I win. My
gene's get past on to the next generation, which must become even more ruthless to survive. I guess there's a part of me that say's, "you're well
armed/trained, you would do well against most of these patsy's". That's the animal qualitie's of the flesh I believe.
I think there's something more to us than that. I for one can't remember where I was before I was born. That's disturbing to me
because I have a feeling that this little life is just so small in the face of Eternity and the Universe. Likewise, I feel like I'm not just going to
end when this body die's. I guess it's like the wind, not knowing where it comes from or where it's going.
Having said that, I personally asked myself, what was the major mean's of communicating information throughout most of human
history? It seem's to me that the written word has been the great communicator/preserver. So then I asked myself, What is the best-selling book of
all time? This of couse led to the Bible (still top's the list every year).
As I studied, I found that the book was being verified with more and more archeological find's. Something that wasn't happening
with the many god's and no god's religion's. I also found the chronology of event's quite interesting, again not found in other's.
One thing I've noticed about a good portion of the world's population is that they find their basic moral guidance from this root.
Judaism stop's with the Old Testament, Christian's embrace the New and Old Testament, and Islam claim's acceptance of both as well, as long as you
take their book first, which contradict's them
At any rate, I think the most important thing about Truth is that one seek's it. Second hand information and generalitie's don't
serve us well in this endeavor. Neither do laziness and out of hand dismissal's. Unless all side's have been THOROUGHLY studied, how can we come to
an informed decision.
So, my take is that the Truth will Reign on this earth, but not through mankind.
