Talk about the age old question we humans have been asking since recorded history began.
If I can remember correctly, I believe this was the exact same question I presented to my first Sunday School teacher as a young lad. I received a
stern look and reply, "You don't ask those kind of questions." From that point on, I became a true skeptic to religion, and studied in earnest to
find the answer to that question.
Lo and behold, the answer was never found, unfortunately. Perhaps I didn't look hard enough and in the right places. However, all of the literature
and history books I scoured while growing up, eluded to the fact that no religion is supreme and absolute in knowledge, there are always certain
questions that "should not be asked" and certain things we should just have faith in, without any tangible, physical proof. No god, of the countless
thousands we creative humans have conjured up--that we have defined--would be the one responsible for us being on this satellite of the sun.
While I may believe in this:
Many others around here would follow this belief:
I personally, think this is one of the toughest questions our species has ever grappled with, and could very well last, unanswered, until our
extinction. Creator vs. creation... It's the toughest brain teasers like this that inspire humanity to further enlightenment.
