Good Evening ATS members.
In my Introduction post as some of my new found Philosophical friends will remember, i did say i would post some of my theories of Christian Atheism
and what i have learned and started to theorize based on my own thoughts and feelings on the journey i have taken trying to find answers to my
questions. In this post i will explain my belief on the Amalgamate Theory of Creation and Evolution and why both can exist.
Many of the posts i have read here in my years of observing, i have seen allot of difference of opinions on these two separate subjects and for the
next ten minutes if you please, i would like you to take the time to read my theory with an open mind and not just read a few sentences and decide "I
must post my views and feelings and take this down" As stated this is only a theory and i would please ask you to respect it as such and not bash it.
It's only an idea of explanation to one of the many many questions we ask.
Feedback, Constructive Criticism and Objections are welcomed. Please be polite.
Let's clear some things up before we begin. If you missed my introduction thread i stated the following.
I believe in God who is an all powerful creator.
I believe in Evolution
I believe in Aliens
I believe in some sort of after life
I believe in the advancement of the Human race and that we will all unite one day.
My beliefs have led me to be mocked and outcast, which is why i fit in with all you other nutters that don't follow the norm. Anyway let's begin.
Creation and Evolution - The Amalgamate Theory
Two opposing sides of completely different ideas can be made when we realize i few truths.
Number 1: Evolution through scientific means has proven the Earth was born over millions and millions of years and yet Religion tells us that the
Universe and all creation was born in a mere seven days. How can each be correct and made to be Unified? Two words which sound stupid together but can
be meaningful if thought of logically. "God Days" - We see time as much as our minds can handle, Time is not measured in any means. You may say
clocks measure time but the objective measure of a clock, is another clock. Using the cycle of day and night in our little corner of the universe in a
vast galaxy where time exists differently. We measure our time, What we know and are used to. Why do we so arrogantly assume an all powerful creator
uses the same time we do? To an all powerful God millions of years to us may indeed be only 7 days for this creator. What we know and how long we have
been around is only a blink of an eye for our creator. Time is meaningless in the vast darkness that surrounds us and we are still so young compared
to what lays around us.
Number 2: Separation in species. So fish walked on land and evolved into species one after another over millions of years to create what we now know
as humans. One thing is missing from this theory and that is the link between Ape and Man. Let's take a further look back into this through and do
not compare these two species for every species is unique and also has missing links. Creationists always use that argument that because we can't
find the link it means it's false as evolutionists think logically how can we just appear in existence? both of these theories however are correct.
The reason we can't find the link is the same reason we can't find the link between Shark and Dolphin, Snakes and Lizards, Lions and Tigers. Where
is the link to show how one species evolved into two? There isn't one, just as their isn't a link between Ape and Man. My Theory is we were all
created and we all take our evolution separately. One species does not change into another, It grows separate. The bird becomes the Eagle through
evolution just ask the mouse becomes the rat dealing with harsher conditions. Black skin becomes white skin as we explore our planet and man rockets
to the moon as our mind evolves. We don't turn from one species into another, we become a greater species in ourselves. No links exist, We just adapt
and appear different.
Number 3: When i was younger i was watching a documentary between an Atheist and a Catholic, The Atheist said "If we we're here first, Who made the
Dinosaurs?" The Catholic replied "They were put here to test our faith" (I do believe that was my first ever face palm) As i pondered on this
question my journey lead me to the same answer as truth two. Evolution. A species before us did evolve one by one. Not from one to another but
differently and then a huge rock from space came and destroyed them all leaving behind evidence which we now call fossils. Creation and Evolution can
explain what happened next. If an all powerful creator knew of this event then why would they place such beautiful and intelligent creations to be
killed? Instead this all powerful God waited until the Earth was ready before we placed us here in "The Garden of Eden" now imagine if we could
observe a planet over billions of years, A meteor strikes and we watch what happens next. I bet the planet would be as beautiful as Earth and so lush
with greenery and be a Paradise and an Eden to behold in all it's glory. Then Place Man and Women to live on this planet knowing disaster would not
come until the point we could defend from it. Our logic compared to an all powerful creator is not even close. Grand plans were set into place and in
our Creation we continued with Evolution. Why are their fossils? Because they were here before us. Creationists need to learn this. We were not the
first and most likely were not the last either. (Alien Theory, Different topic)
Creation and Evolution can work together if we don't fight and think for a moment. There's so many great minds here on ATS and it should be clear to
an educated and logical thinker that both can work together if you ask the question "How?" and find the answers. We were created and we are
Evolving, We were never Apes we were just allot less intelligent than we are now. In one million years a spider monkey will not evolve into a
chimpanzee, They will evolves separably into two amazing more intelligent special just as we will evolve into a better species. It's evolution at
work governed by an all powerful creator. We are not alone so never feel we are. There's so much more than this little rock in space. We need to stop
thinking that we know so much when we really know so little. The answers will come, But in God time not ours, We can't even begin to fathom what's
in store for us but i hope we will all face it together.
I hope you enjoyed my theory and as always I'm looking forward to your answers as it helps me open up my mind to more possibilities and helps with my
research and journey to find answers.
Time is precious and i thank you for sharing yours with me.
The Christian Atheist.
