We are limited to our understanding of Awareness and we can only view this reality from a very limited perspective. Because we can't "talk" to the Earth does no mean it is not Alive. The Earth gives life to all organisms. Could a mother give birth to a child if it was not a conscious living being?
Actually, the first Pagan Creation story is the Akkadian Enuma Elish. The Enuma Elish is basically the same creation story as told in Genesis. en.wikipedia.org...ûma_Eliš
Most Pagan Creation stories have a 'father' and 'mother' dropped to earth by one or multiple gods to procreate on the earth. Most of the stories involve siblings who have rivalry and most of them also have a world deluge as part of the story.
I haven't seen yet a Pagan Creation story that encompasses an evolutionary process.
am, however, very confused as to why 'Christians' cannot reconcile evolution with creationism. After all, God IS the greatest scientist, having created everything from atoms, to chemicals, to molecules to planetary systems that all work and interrelate together scientifically and symbiotically.
My thought is that early man (whom the Bible was originally written for) could not grasp complex scientific principles and so a story was developed that allowed these early people to grasp the idea and easily re-tell the story. With the understanding that man would increase in intellect and scientific understanding with time and finally be able to grasp the REALY miraculous way the earth formed and evolved. The God I envision is fully capable of such complex a
Evolution as an element of religious belief is MUCH more impressive and mind boggling than two humans being dropped fully formed onto the earth and encouraged to rut like dogs.
And why would you equate Science with the Devil?
Would you want your children to grow in understanding of the world or remain in darkness and ignorance?
From her own scorched crust, Earth can create life.
That is enough evidence for me to be convinced that Earth is a living being.
