I'd rather put it as; "less intelligent people likely to believe in religion, but wise people likely to follow its wisdom".
When speaking about God one must consider which God we are talking about as it is a term meaning different things to a multitude of different
Atheists tend to think of God as a giant bearded man in a robe who is supposed to have created the Universe, Earth and finally Mankind in his own
image. However this notion of God is entirely based upon paintings depicting God as such, but in almost every religious tradition, at least as far as
I know, God is infact not a physical being but a Holy Spirit.
Considering this as actuality one must consider what the literall meanings of both "holy" and "spirit" are.
"Holy" derives directly from "divine", "divine" being the natural "force/power" of a "diety", "diety" being a non physical "entity" and "entity" being
a "consciousness" and "consciousness", the "source" of "thought", is as any intelligent human being would know not visible.
The "spirit" basically comes down to the same thing in the end. It is a non physical conscious "force".
In other words, "God, the Holy Spirit" literally means "God, the conscious force" and not "God, the bearded man in a robe who is pointing fingers".
Now with that out of the way one must consider what creationists believe to be the truth about the creation and what the "divine plan" is all
First of all, God should always be considered to be a Trinity of Holy Spirits; the Mother, Father and the Son.
Now, instantly a picture of a woman, a man and their male child appears in your imagination, correct?
But understant that a "trinity" is three essential parts of a singular cell allowing symbiosis to occur and harmony to be maintained, thus one part
cannot survive without the other two and the cell which they create through harmonious coexistence would not exist at all.
What does this have to do with anything you ask? And the answer is "everything".
Why? Becuase scientific research suggests that in the creation of the Universe; in the beginning all that was was an infinite space of "nothing" but
suddenly out of "nothing" an infinitely concentrated mass of infinite energy, which is "everything", appeared and through the nuclear reaction between
"nothing" and "everything" what followed was a "big bang" through which the Universe was born.
How is this significant? Ask yourself this; "if there was no consciousness to experience the existence of existence would existence exist?"
After you have come to a conclusion I ask you to meditate upon this; "nothing is "nothing" thus it is always something".
And if this doesn't make any sense either, read this carefully and let it soak in; "the empty nothingness of space is full of everything of it".
Now, you probably sit there looking like the definition of confusion but remember what a trinity is and it will all make a lot more sense.
There is no such thing as "nothing" and "never" in infinity, thus, infinity is always infinitely everything.
If you still don't comprehend what I am explaining to you then let me spell it out for you; "existence", "universe", "reality" and "infinity".
Foundation, creation, construct.
Mother, Father and Son.
The Holy Trinity of God.
Have you ever heard about the theory regarding parallel realities?
If you have then you have probably had it explained for you that in every instant of time every action creates a seperate alternativ parallel reality,
in which the same process is repeated and this natural phenomenon continues infinitely.
And you have probably heard about "thought, visualization and realization" as well?
That is how you function in a conscious state of existence.
Your consciousness creates a command, your mind visualizes it and then your body, the physical manifestation of you carries out the command in the
In the reality in which you experience existence you experience existence in the present, not past, present and future which is a concept man
constructed to keep track of time but in reality only allows you to keep track of the present and help you plan the future.
You do not travel back in time and you do not travel forward into the future. You are always in the present and manifests a reality consciously so
theoretically speaking; if you were to "travel back in time" what you really would be doing would be to manifest a present reality of existence in
which you would create a present reality, based upon the foundation of another present reality that you would consider as "the past", in which you
would fool yourself into thinking was a previous moment of existence.
The same principle applies to future travel. You simply create a present reality in which you manifest your image of the future.
Time should rather be considered as "previously continuesly, present reality and thought, visualization, realization in present reality" or simple as
I like to call this "the infinite consciousness realization".
You still don't get it do you?
God, is the universal consciousness of existence and you are but an extension/thought/experience of the universal "mind's" existence.
What is the "divine plan" then? Evolution. Trial and error in search of perfection.
The original and still on going divine plan is to find peace of mind and harmony in existence.
Look at it this way and imagine this in regards to "and God said, let us create man in our own image";
God is the mind of a meditating monk who since the beginning of everything realized the infinite consciousness realization or ultimate truth of
existence and the reality of infinity.
This came to the monk as a "big bang" of revelation and the Universe in which we exist was born out of the thought of nothing always being
Since then, approximetly about 13.7 billion years ago this poor monk has tried desperatly to find peace of mind because this realization is nothing
short of infinitely chaotic, but, through conscious evolution it can theorietically be achieved.
Find a way to evolve this thought into a perfect state of being and allow it to simply be.
Now ask yourself; am I less intelligent for believing in a Creator, as the simple thought of the Universe?
Theism, aetheism and agnosticism is equally stuck in their tracks.
Let your consciousness and God sort out this in peace. Meanwhile, go out there and appreciate life.
What can I do? I am not the source. I'm just happy to be here.
