Surely you must have a thought on what you believe is the truth behind our creation. I understand that its nearly impossible to know for sure.
However, since you have been researching this for years, and I have not, I would like to know if I am in anyway on the right path.
That's a good question. I will share my personal insight with you about this.
Belief is based entirely upon faith and assumption when there is a lack of evidence.
Knowing is based upon direct observation and experience.
Beliefs are almost certainly going to be found incorrect, if even partially. That is the most common pattern in history, that we discover our
"beliefs" were wrong. So this is a clear warning to me that I should be extremely careful with my "beliefs" and attempt to temper them through
questioning them and attempting to fact check them.
It is inevitable that you will come across ideas or claims that you will mentally reject outright for no reason other than that we have been
programmed by society to reject such notions/suggestions. This is a critical aspect because we must be careful to avoid rejecting things outright
based purely upon our "belief" not agreeing with it.
Questioning one's own beliefs is the key to unlocking your mind from the hold they have upon you. Of course no one is perfect, no matter how hard I
try every day I fall prey to more unfounded beliefs and spurious assumptions. The key here is to recognize one's own folly and bravely admit to it,
than take corrective action to readjust your mental disposition accordingly.
When it comes to "creation" there are many possibilities and all of them must be considered carefully and questioned deeply.
Did we merely evolve in an isolated system? Was it aliens who came down and seeded life on Earth? Was it humans from the future or humans from Mars
who did it rather than aliens? Is there a universal power which manifested everything in an instant? Or did aliens come down into an already naturally
evolved system and make a few genetic alterations thus creating humans? Or is it another possibility we haven't considered yet?
Anyone can pick one of these possibilities and "believe in it", however there is also the chance they are picking the wrong answer and will end up
being incorrect factually. Therefore the most advantageous position in my estimation is to simply consider all points of view, research them and
question them, find correlations or clarifications, etc.
Indeed remaining open to all possibilities until individual possibilities can be eliminated through evidence or otherwise extremely convincing
logical/philosophical arguments is a powerful tactic in seeking answers.
When it comes to "creation" it is exceptionally difficult to eliminate possibilities due to the lack of pertinent data. So in reality, all of these
possibilities including ones I failed to mention, are on the table and are viable candidates for explanation.
Hopefully that should be helpful. Thanks for caring.
