Now this is going to be a bit of a ramble, I tried to go to bed and sleep, but yet another night of insomnia…..
So where to begin? I don’t know really….But here goes….
My dad has always been a very upright religious man who basically believes the Bible, verbatim, precisely and faithfully, to the letter. That is it,
in a nutshell. Nothing will sway his belief, what he reads he believes and anything else outside the box (bible), he has no interest in. No matter
what argument/discussion you put to him he will always refer you back to bible for the answers even if he has no idea where the answers are within the
pages of the book..
As a child growing up I got quite bored of this, I wanted to discuss many topics that obviously bombarded a young man’s growing mind, but my father
was unable to do so. I suppose the other side to this is the fact that since the day I was born all I knew was the church and everybody associated
with my parents had something to do with the church. Even the other children that I grew up with within the church had not been given the opportunity
to work things out for themselves because they had also been brought up in much the same way as I had since the day they were also born…
I suppose the only way I can describe it really is a kind of indoctrination/brainwashing to believe in something that you have not had the
opportunity to really work out whether it is something that you wish to follow of your own free will, or not. But I will say that by the time I
reached the age of 13, I had come to my own conclusions and lost interest in the church/bible, and started to search for my own reasoning’s behind
such ideas as to why and how men/women came to wander the earth. This was obviously followed by me leaving the family home as quickly as I possibly
could when I got to a certain age to escape that particular lifestyle, but that’s another story…
Anyway, one of the main topics of interest to me which I tried to talk to my dad about was the person/being/creature/item/character he referred to as
God. Obviously the only reasoning I got behind Gods existence from my dad was that he was the creator of everything that we are aware of around
us.fullstop/period, that’s all he had to say. But I found this very hard to believe….
I have always in some ways believed that the name God was just a name that people wrote about in the bible because they had no other term for him.
Apparently and according to the bible, God referred to himself as God. Now when God stated his name was God, did he mean the name to represent a
deity/spirit/supernatural being and something to be idolized? Or was his name actually God, in a similar way as to some of us are called Frank, Benny
For some reason I have always had the belief/idea that the world and everything else evolved by chance, a chance happening that developed and
developed over millions of years with certain molecules and this that and the other mixing up by chance and getting to where we are today, without
getting too scientific or technical. This is just what I conjured up in my mind even as a small child in much the same way as evolution. The idea of a
God always being there I thought to be totally improbable and was just an imaginary/fantasy option for people to write about in order to give the
whole reason as to why man is on the earth some kind of reasoning. I see it as no different today where there are things that we are not too sure
about so people make up reasons or stories as to what they believe the answers to be. Such things as the Yeti, Loch Ness Monster, fairies, orbs,
ghosts etc, which nobody has any real answers to, so they just try and make up some kind of sense in order to give a theory as to what they believe it
could or couldn’t be…
Now my dad believes unequivocally that God did and still does exist, even though he has no proof whatsoever that God has ever been seen by anybody
that ever stood upon this earth apart from the writings within the Bible...
Now when I asked my dad about such things as Unidentified Flying Craft or life on other worlds, or even alien beings being present here on earth
today, he just laughs and totally dismisses the idea entirely without any hesitation, even though there have been many books written, filmed sightings
and numerous documentaries and movies out there for all to see...
Now in my own mind, the theory that I came to when I was a child was this, you may not agree with it, but this is just my thoughts and opinion...
I believe that the earth had been going for a long, long time and man was upon the earth that had evolved from my chance theory that I explained
earlier. Anyway, for some reason this planet of ours was visited by other beings from somewhere out there. These beings were obviously advanced in
science and technology and came across to the people upon the earth as far superior beings. Now I don’t believe that these beings came to hurt us
because that would have been far too easy, but I believe that they came to assist us in some way to advance in certain ways. I believe that these
beings had sexual contact with members of the Earth’s community and the children that were born from these relationships advanced better than what
others did who had no VISITOR parent…
Now I tried to put my theory forward to my Dad, but obviously he was having none of it. I also tried to toy him with the idea that these visitors were
actually called God, or something attached to them with the word God, be it the name of the place that they came from, or the name of a race of people
or maybe even the king/queen/leader/emperor of these beings was in fact called God…
Now eventually when these beings ascended back to where they came from (some of which I believe stayed upon the Earth, some of which were children)
the only way that man could describe the stories to future generations within the Bible, was to refer to a being called God, because this is a word
that they heard when they were upon the earth. Now over time of course you have the Chinese Whispers that occur and certain things get diluted and
changed around and probably end up being totally different as to what really occurred all those thousands of years ago, people do like to crank things
up a little to give it a bit of umph…
Obviously over time some evidence has been lost or interpreted in a totally different way to the way in which events really did occur. I am sure in
time more will come to the fore that will enable us as a race of people to have more knowledge as we progress scientifically…
Now I don’t know whether this all makes sense to people out there, or if I have actually described my thoughts in a confusing way, after all we all
have our own ideas of how we came to be and thoughts of other beings other than ourselves being present then and at this moment in time…
These were some of my thoughts as a child growing up and they have always been there in my mind and this is a kind of belief that I cling to. I
believe one day we will find out, maybe not in our lifetime, but one day it will all become clear. When it does happen I think man will be totally
gobsmacked of the spectacle that he will witness and it will be something that will just blow minds, something I can’t even put into writing and
probably not even have the words to describe even if it was to happen today…
