I don't like the idea that since something is unexplainable, it somehow proves or adds to the case for God. I'm a spiritual person, but when is
this nonsense going to stop? Science doesn't know everything at a given moment, so mentioning the suns would have ran out of hydrogen and things
like that I find juvenal. All throughout history it seems that "unexplainable" things have been used to support God. Science is the understanding
of reality through reception, and spirituality is the understanding of reality through bestowal.
Of course God could develop everything through thought, but I'd say that there is a will first to create.
How could we possibly understand something like that? How could we possibly know what something like that would want from us? How could we possibly
know anything of god? This makes (at least scientifically) every religion ever thought of completely wrong. It doesn’t mean there isn’t a god, it
just means we don’t know what or who god really is because god is far beyond our little brains.
God is bestowing in quality, that is scientifically sound. We are receiving in our quality through the ego, that is also sound. How is egoism
incongruent with God/spirituality, that's the question. It wants us to become bestowing in our qualities so to become like God, which is bestowal.
The concept really isn't that difficult if a person just thinks about the ego and human behavior. Considering how our egos will basically kill each
other if it benefits us, how is that going to fit in heaven? You're going to kill your brother in heaven? Yeah, don't think so....
Therefore distance really doesn’t matter at this level of thinking
What determines closeness or distance is egoism. If God is the opposite of that, total bestowal, and we're totally receiving, we feel total
separation from God. But when we develop that attribute of bestowal, then we move closer and have similarity of form.
Reduced to the smallest part, a person is an ego that seeks pleasure...something to consider.
I've read a lot of threads about creationism vs. evolution and it doesn't matter if we were instantly created or if humans developed from a long
line of mutations. As someone posted, God created the physical laws of the universe, so since “natural laws” come from God, how could evolution
not be seen as being entirely from God? If someone believes in a all encompassing God, then why are they afraid if we did develop through evolution
from God-created natural laws. Hate to say it, but it comes from stupid people that are "told" that the *poof* humans theory has to be true and
stupid people that hinge their faith upon believed impossibility observed through science.
