There are going to be many crude over-generalizations presented in my thread, it's not intentional, and I'm trying to refrain from it, but at least
I'm making it a point rather than just skipping over it like many other posts. Anyways, here goes trying to word this as best as I can.
Okay, so I would consider it a generally conceived notion that we, as a species, do not know where we came from, how we came about, when we came
about, why we came about, etc. What would generally be coined the 'big' questions that humanity has ever considered. Now, I know some of you are
going to feel absolutely certain in that you've found the answers to these questions. You're going to use cherry-picked scripture from your
cherry-picked holy book (there's quite a few out there), that's subjective, in order to prove an objective existence. I'll refrain from saying
more, but it clutters up a thread, is not the point here, and it's annoying.
Anyway, on to my main point. Space is freaking insane. I mean, mind-boggling is a crude understatement. I studied Astronomy for a very short period of
time, and the intricacies of motion, light, gravity; it is absolutely incredible. And to think, there are more planets than there are grains of sand
on this Earth. Ridiculous. The sheer scale of our cosmos, and to think we have barely scratched the surface as to the knowledge the stars hold. It's
such a beautiful creation, although I certainly will not discredit the notion that it is all some elaborate quantum illusion that is stranger than one
can begin to imagine. Well here's my point with this thread.
Where did it all come from? The Big Bang? God?
Well, personally, I have absolutely no idea. Sure, I have my beliefs, but they are that. BELIEFS. I do not entertain them as fact, or at least I
honestly try not to do so. But where did all this creation, literally the only thing we 'know' are the cosmos, our Earth, and the planets in our
solar system because they have always been there.
Now, I have a massive problem with this question. Well, I shouldn't say the question. It's more of the responses people give to this question. As I
briefly mentioned earlier, and although it is my opinion, our universe is such a magnificent place and as far as we know we are the only sentient life
out there. We are the definition of lucky, on a very objective scale (ignoring the corruption, murder, deceit that's devoured our world). Yet, when
it comes to appreciating this creation, and trying to become in touch with it so we can feel a part of something bigger than ourselves; people gloss
over their own intuition and give such blithe answers.
"God did it." And it may not be that simple, it's all too often that someone responds with some fluffed up 'esoteric' feel good garbage. And I
hate to call it garbage, because I'm all for love and spirituality (peace, brother.) but it gets so tiresome after awhile. Don't teach your
philosophy, embody it; live it. Well like I was saying, it's such a moot answer to a beautiful question.
Here's the kicker. We all know the very, very typical 'arguement' for the Big Bang Theory. "Something can't come from nothing."
So, where did God come from? I mean, you guys have said it yourself. Something cannot come from nothing. Why is God an exception to this? Is it
because it's God? How do you know what God is? Because a book told you so? Can you prove this book has any divinity in it? What about the countless
other Holy Books and supposed divine encounters? Do they not count? Are they wrong? Are they wrong for calling you wrong because they believe they're
right just as you believe you're right?
Why are none of these questions ever answered? What is God's will? Who gave you the authority to decipher and understand the will of a God, that you
so often allude to in sayings such as 'God works in mysterious ways?' Is that a direct contradiction, such as the something coming from nothing
example? Is God omnipotent/omniscient? If so, then why did he send his only son to save us? If true, before he created himself (?) and the universe,
he would have been aware of Adam and Eve, and sending his son (which is himself?) to save us, yes? My philosophy professor liked to call this the
"The man who throws the baby in the river then jumps in to save the baby; because you know, saving babies is cool!"
As I mentioned earlier, there are a lot of crude over-generalizations here. But my point still stands. People need to stop this madness with
proclaiming the truth of a God, salvation, Heaven, our existence, etc.
I am sorry to break it to you, BUT WE ARE NOT DONE ADVANCING AS A SPECIES. Well, with the way things are headed now, that is certainly questionable,
but I believe when all is said and done the human race will still be around. Has it ever occurred to you that there are endless possibilities of
monumental truths as well as monumental silences that exist in our reality? That ONE of MANY books that were written in a time that is nowhere even
relevant to the technological age we live in now, had the entire essence of existence already figured out and now it's our job to just blindly follow
our Shepard like mindless sheep?
And people wonder why no one cares about government corruption or illegal wars, because since thousands of years ago the human race has been
indoctrinated into passively accepting their situation because it's out of our control, and what matters is making ourselves happy because whatever
else happens is 'God's will.'
I went out to eat with a couple of friends a month or so back. They were discussing a meme depicting Jesus being hit with a handful of rocks. One of
them got past him, and it hit a kid and because of this he cried foul. They mentioned how Jesus died for our sins and we need to be grateful for what
Now, I'm going to hold my tongue more than I want to, but why doesn't Jesus get the... up and take a Hellfire missile for some of the children my
government is bombing in countless countries. Why didn't Jesus come down from the Heavens and save himself when a nuclear bomb was dropped on top of
innocent civilians; and then so again. Why doesn't Jesus come down and stop this nuclear disaster before we all pay the price.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, a lot of people combat this with fluffed up esoteric non--sense. "They are in God's kingdom now. It's so beautiful
there, and they are more happy than ever."
HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS? Does God talk to you and snapchat you pictures of Heaven? Did you trip so hard or astrally project through the Universe and talk
to the "Spirit Guides" or whatever the hell they're called now-a-days.
Anyone that says they hear God, they've seen Heaven, they know His will, anyone that says they've reached enlightenment, anyone that says that
God's word is absolute truth should NOT be taken seriously. I'm sorry, but the very steps leading up to this platform are absolutely RIDDLED with
logical inconsistencies and faith based reasoning. If you disagree with this, go back up to the point where I asked a series of questions. How many of
those can be answered with objective and tangible proof?
So, where did space come from? Did it come from nothing? Did it come from God? If it came from God, where did God come from? Where did the creator of
God come from? How deep does the rabbit hole go?
If something cannot come from nothing, if this is true; and I'm sorry to say it, but God is no exception. You cannot prove his existence nor his
