I have no proof to back this up but this is what I have believed since I was a very young boy (6 to 8 years old).
Religion as we know it is a farce. There is a "higher" existence but the Gods we worship are physical beings that created us.
Before humans, this earth was occupied by a harsher race of beings. Think of the planet as are meat farm. As these harsher being continued their war
with what we regard as the enlightened beings, the keepers of this planet had to abandon it.
The creatures were left to fend for themselves; absent of their "Gods."
For some time, this solar sytem was left to it's own devices.
Later (much later in human terms), this rogue planet was "discovered" by the enlightened beings. In much the same sense, it was like Columbus
discovering America, despite the Vikings before him and despite the natives that already lived there.
Realizing who was here before them, they cleansed this planet, in much the same way that the American colonists whiped out the native-Indians.
There is your end to the dino age.
Afterwards, they placed their own beings here. Maybe it was their version of a meat farm or maybe it was their version of a paradise.
But in the event that they had to leave and the harsher race returned, they created a hybrid race in their likeness. This is how our God created
In the beginning, there were many gods; some tended to the sky, some to the water, some to the land, ect. ect. The oldest religions support this
But in time, the war removed more and more Gods until there were only afew left.
The younger religions support the mono-God theory but I believe they are all connected.
The last Gods could have been the Christian God, Allah, et al. With so few gods, it became impossible to tend to the small issues so attention to man
was less and less.
In the end, the last God left. I believe this happened in the last few hundred years.
Like the dinos before us, we are now Godless. As they fight their wars, we fight ours.
Very soon, one of these two types of beings will return. Every religion teaches that the harsher beings are our anti-Gods. It is embedded in us to
But at some point, one of them will return. Will it be our own creators? And how will we respond when they pull up to our planet in their space ship
and say, "Time for the rapture. All aboard."
At that point, what are we to believe? Since they created us, our they are true light to be followed or are they deceptive liars that should not be
trusted? Should we stay or should we go?
If we stay, then what? What happens when the harsher beings arrive. We have been programmed to hate and fear them so how is our first contact with
them going to go? Do we join the dark side (pun intended)? Do we fight them to?
Will THEY be looking for new recruits or will we be in the way of their progress?
And what of the true Gods? If we all have souls and spirits and we move on to that plain after our physical death, will it be anything like what we
have read in our religious books?
Or will it be something we cant begin to comprehend until after we "graduate?"
So thats what I believe. Just my luck, all this does is raise many, many more questions then it answers.
In my opinion, neither should be trusted but we arent capable of surviving on our own either. What a situation.
Whats even more scarey then this is that fact that I was sober when I came up with it (and pretty young).
Trust your instinct, not your illogic.
