When have we ever been right in the past about creation and the universe? I'd say just about never. So the idea that we're suddenly right doesn't sit
well with me.
Personlly, I'm not sure we'll ever know. Maybe when we're so advanced that we're CONFINED by this universe then we'll actually know something about
all this. Otherwise, it's foolspeak.
I won't stop people from searching and arguing about creation theories or the big theory of everything. We wouldn't have science if people didn't do
this. But at the same time, I privately think we're just as dumb as we've ever been. Everytime we make progress we bloat with confidence and start
shooting off lofty theories to explain everything. This has happened in almost every era. The era of enlightenment was popular for over-confident
know-it-alls. We're fools, but that's ok.
I'm more fascinated by astronomy and what kinds of life or extinct life are out here. Maybe there're alien artifacts drifting in space alone or on
planetary bodies. Awesome possibility.
Or... just being fascinated with what's in front of us here on earth. Every day I'm fascinating by many things, some of which are natural and some of
which are man-made.
Just learn to appreciate the things that're closer to being real. We know there're stars, for example. We observe our own. And we're fairly certain
there're others. And where there're other stars, there're probably other planets. And we've seen those too - or think we have. This invites lots of
impressive possibility. But if we go much further than that, we start to mimic a preacher at the pulpit because so much of it's limited by our
observational reach. Hell, we haven't even traveled to another star yet and we're ready to explain the whole universe. That's, in my eyes, bordering
Don't be too confident or future people will think you're a blithering fool, if they somehow come across things you wrote or recorded. Honestly,
people in the past were usually wrong.
Why would we be any different? We'll probably be wrong too.
