Life started as single cell organisms. Life evolved in order to adapt to the changing world. Mutations changed DNA, DNA changed certain species
slowly, the species with mutations that made it hard for them to survive died out. Those whose mutations made it easier to survive and replicated
passed on their DNA. Humans soon formed. Humans relied on each other to help get food, to fight invaders, etc. Soon, humans started showing emotion:
love, lust, hate, anger, etc. Thought to stem from one universal primitive emotion, pleasure. Maybe those that caused pleasure caused more pleasure.
Things that caused pain didn't really cause pain, it caused less pleasure. Throughout life we started understanding that one thing causes more
pleasure, another thing doesn't. But because we are still a young species relative to the history of the rest of our planet there are still many
things in the world we ourselves have little or no concept of. Somethings are just too hard to wrap our young minds around. Like the concept of
infinity. We say, well there has to be some kind of end to the world. There has to be some kind of beginning to everything. Why? Who says there has to
be some kind of beginning or end to anything? According to chemistry nothing is created or destroyed. It's the Conservation of Mass.
People have a hard time understanding these things because our time here on Earth is so limited. Because we have such a limited understanding of life,
we have a limited understanding of everything that governs life. It causes pleasure inside of ourselves knowing that there is a reason to live. It
causes a pleasure inside of ourselves knowing that there is a invisible being looking after us and waiting for us to receive eternal life. Life after
life. Because if this is all there is, it wouldn't be rational to waste our life on nothing. Right? It gives us pleasure to believe so we believe.
When in reality, it doesn't have to be just because we want it to be. It is just what it is, nothing more.
