I am not exactly a creationist. There is no way I believe the earth is only 6 thousands years old when we have fossils millions of years
So technically, your not a fundamentalist, but still a creationist as you still subscribe to a created universe by external intelligent means.
I believe there is an intelligent consciousness, but does that mean a god formed man from clay? I don't think so. I believe life is an an
evolutionary process with maybe interference.
Let's play with this for a moment, let's assume human evolution was interfered with... Does this necessarily have to mean is was supernaturally
interfered with based upon your beliefs created by humans lacking modern knowledge thousands of years ago, or could it mean that some extraterrestrial
race that arose naturally conducted experiments on early Earth that eventually led to humanity thus negating any possible supernatural entity having
any role whatsoever?
Everything should be backed up by science, but some things cannot yet be backed up by science.
Yes, this is one of the limitations of science, of any human really. We can only answer question in which we have discovered the answers to. If I ask
you to build me an antimatter fueled interstellar spacecraft, you couldn't personally do it, but never would I assume that it can never be done based
on your own limitations. Just as we should never assume that there should be supernatural explanations to our universe just because science does not
currently have all the answers.
Have I known there is a higher consciousness we can attain? Yes, absolutely. Man does NOT know fully what he is yet.
A higher consciousness? I'm confused... How could we be more self aware? Not know what we are? That statement just makes no sense. We're a primate
species that naturally evolved on this little rock that are capable of advanced tool use and language faculties compared to other primates on our
I believe science and spirituality will merge one day.
Perhaps someday if spirits are ever scientifically proven. I'm going to guess that this is improbable considering the "theory" of spirit has a
thousands of years now running history and has never once yet been proven true and for all intents and purposes appears to be just as it is, an
explanation for what happens when we die first conceived by primitive peoples who lacked current modern day knowledge and instruments to properly
answer questions of that regard.
Yes, I do believe myth has some truth to it. Dinosaurs have been found with feathers.
I don't get it... For many years now it's been hypothesized and predicted that we would find dinosaurs with feathers. I don't recall a time where
it was considered a myth.
