Creationism and Evolution both require "Faith" or "confidence" or "belief".
If you believe in creationism then you are putting faith in the words and wisdom that have been passed down for centuries and heavily translated and
transcribed. (A personal choice)
Evolution requires the same in the discoveries of human beings who are testing things relative to the world as they know it. I'm sure to get ripped
for this but come on. Science is just as far fetched as creationism if you have a COMPLETELY open mind.
Science can ONLY prove what the observer sets out to prove.
Creationism can ONLY prove (In hypothetical ways) that someone at some point wrote this stuff down and it apparently gained enough popularity to
I think the real fascinating part of all of this that the ACTUAL truth (Should we ever be fortunate to discover it or be told of a key discovery with
regards to it..Something else similar to the Higgs Boson)
is that it is most likely a little bit of a mixture of both.
I know people bring up the fact that the story being told to Moses is handed down and this is vital.
Perhaps the science they had way back when brought forth a particular understanding much like the ones we have in our midst today. Back before written
languages were common and books and such were somewhat widely available. Most of these stories WOULD have been passed down and across from generation
to generation and perhaps ethnicity to ethnicity and so on and so forth.
From creationism to evolution. I prefer to think that the real truth is more Amazing that either and that both can be used and studied by an
intellectual person to develop their own deeply personal opinion of the matter. Whether or not that true opinion is allowed to be expressed outwardly
by the ego is a whole different matter. I do somewhat agree also with what the late and great Carl Sagan said.
"It seems to me what is called for is an exquisite balance between two conflicting needs: the most skeptical scrutiny of all hypotheses that are
served up to us and at the same time a great openness to new ideas . . . If you are only skeptical, then no new ideas make it through to you . . . On
the other hand, if you are open to the point of gullibility and have not an ounce of skeptical sense in you, then you cannot distinguish the useful
ideas from the worthless ones."
Because when you really look at it. The real truth will be the newest most unthinkable perhaps unattainable truth their is. The question then
becomes.. are we better off never knowing completely?
To me the stories are so similar. Reading older gospels such as that of Bartholomew and Mary..ones not typically in the western christian cannon.
Reading Bartholomew (Nathaniel) describe witnessing Satan and how he was cast out of heaven makes it seem as if there are two stories to creation as
far fetched as it seems. The "Creation" was the universe in the beginning. The casting out of Satan brought about the "Universe" which is a simulation
and copied version of the creator (God/Singularity). Almost like a self starting weather system that began when the right elements were formed. Missed
by a lot who are "Christians" and even believers is the fact that technically if those stories are true than "Earth" belongs to Satan. God is both
Good and Evil. He is everything.
Satan is Pepsi to God's Coca Cola.
God has the monopoly but Satan will constantly try to counter.
Even evolution in my opinion lends itself to a creator or creation system through the laws of the universe in some fashion. Just considering how
science works (from what we believe to know or have hypothesized) from photo-synthesis to and jet engines, cell phones and lasers to space travel to
satellites in space to the variety of animals and humans and plants it almost seems as if the main purpose of the Universe is merely to exist. We can
know that there must be some reason because we can see it, if there was none everyone would perhaps be blind. (CS Lewis) Also the universe is punched
by got and countered by Satan at every point of the universe.
I don't know what the real truth is but the fact is it is most likely more spectacular (as I've previously mentioned) than any simple human is able to
At the end of the day.. singularity or God or nothing. We are still even less than nothing.
The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory
and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.
Whatever it is. Open minds to all. I do believe as I've said before. With God.. the only thing he would be truly intolerable of... is intolerance of
others and differing opinions. This..Is perhaps why the Universe is so F'n big.
