Before i start my rant, i am not part of any religion, i am studying a bioscience degree, and i like pie. Ok, here we go.
-There is evidence to show that the big bang happened.
-There is evidence to show that evolution happens.
But what science can't tell us is HOW or WHY. it appauls me when i see people (like the thread starter) claim that science has all the answers and
everyone else, whether they be religious, ID'er or creationist should just sit down and accept "defeat".
Science has not proven anything. All science has done is end up with a dollar sign on itself, along with everything else on this planet
initial goal was to quantitize the individual building blocks of reality, where we came from, where are we going, and so forth. But science has lost
its focus on these objectives, and swayed more towards making profits for big pharma companies etc.
Don't get me wrong, science has helped mankind, but science is not THE answer. Science is no different from religion IMHO, it is nothing more than a
train of consciousness, where it is used to directly bash those who believe in a religion or other theory regarding our origins. Slowly but surely we
are seeing the media mention science and telling celebrities not to state things unless they know the "scientific facts". This is dangerous. It is
now being used as a tool to close peoples minds off from other possiblilties without having actually demonstrated without a doubt that there is no God
or other explanation for our origins.
One should ask why science has ended up being bashed against religion, instead of working TOGETHER to find answers. Does the motto "Divide and
Conquer" mean anything to anyone anymore?..
In regards to the big bang and evolution, two of the most important ideas ever realised; Is it so hard to believe that there may actually be a purpose
to both of these ideas? Cause and effect? If the big bang was everything exploding from nothing, into nothing, what triggered it? My own
interpretation is that the big bang was similar to the birth of an organism, the birth of consciousness into this dimension. I find it stupid that
people believe something like the big bang could just happen for no reason, and there was nothing before it...what kind of explanation is that?!
And evolution...I don't think people realise just how amazing DNA itself really is! Something so small containing a complex code..are we to believe
that by "chance" the various pieces just fell together? I know its been demonstrated that you CAN create the various pieces in a controlled
experiement by using electrical discharges and various gases, but that doesn't explain HOW they just came together to form a code. Even if you bashed
the pieces together for all eternity, would you ever come up with a code for life? I doubt it.
And "junk DNA"...that just shows science in a nutshell. They haven't (or can't) work out what this portion of DNA does, so they just brand it as
nothing important, when infact i believe it may be more important than anything realised previously about DNA, and it could hold the answer to
The fact is, science has done NOTHING to answer where we came from, how we came from that origin, and where we are heading.
Science, im afraid, is nothing but a "best guess". Even one of my University lecturers stated "the mechanism of evolution is not understood at
all". In order for science to prove anything it must first realise that we, human consciousness, is the most important part of the equation. The
"observer" of any experiement is as important as the results obtained, and until science factors in consciousness, it will get no where.
The answers are not "out there", but "in here" *points to myself*. Funny thing is, even the Shamans can tell you where we came from, what reality
is all about, yet, they did no experiements other than with their own consciousness using various mind bending drugs...
