-The only thing the theory of Evolution is missing? The idea of "intelligent design" being behind the seemingly playful and frivolously diverse varieties of organisms living within a single eco-system. There is no evidence that any form of life (besides Man perhaps..) seeks to become a "perfect being" or that there is some sort of race to a form of "evolutionary supremacy" and hence "survival of the fittest" cannot be the whole picture..

I don't believe in Evolution, or Creationism completely. Creationism seems to be trying to use science to explain God, which is OK I guess. You just can't be surprised when science fails and leaves you wanting. I am of the belief that Evolution is flawed. It has some good ideas, but people only have part of the puzzle. Instead of looking for the other parts, Evolutionists often simply sit back, and let others do the heavy lifting. Both types hang their beliefs on what other people tell them, as opposed to forming their own opinion with the evidence at hand. Which, is what I did.
What folks have to remember, is that creation, and the creator, are two different yet linked entities. They 'meet' where infinity crosses itself at the crux, where one flows into the other. I don't think we will ever truly define our universe, mostly, because it doesn't want to be defined.
Rather, I believe that Darwin was suggesting that surviving, in and of itself, was the desired goal.
One could go as far as stating God could actually not exist. That the only Oneness that exist is You. Take it a step future and everything you see, people are just aspects of yourself playing out roles you created in the first place. That would now Make you God since you are creating everything, you just do not know it!
How can one find something protected by a Box? We spend so much time naming things so our minds can understand it. There is in no way possible to understand it all! Who came up with the idea anyways? Right now as you are reading my blass-full-me, that is it! Regret the past, change the future.
Of course, this philosophy then follows a slippery slope to justifying the acts of murders and pedophiles as "misunderstood" and the disturbing thing is that i cannot deny this..
What this leads to is what I call the "My God" syndrome.The basis is everyones belief system makes themselves God EVEN if they don't think they believe it.If "their God" is a perception of something "outside" themselves it is merely a projection made in their image.That is mankind's nature.
That is at the core of the great illusion/delusion .That is mans "matrix" they "live in.In a sense a virtual projection of "their " world.Fortunately it is not Agent Smiths doing the projection nor is there a Neo to save the day to "wake you up".
At the present time there is ZERO mankind can do to "change" this universe.It is where they live.Most are completely blind to their "condition".In one sense it is a "good" blindness. Contemplating your "near nothingness" doesn't do much for "your" perception of reality.Better to bury your head in the sand than "perceive" the near nothingness of your world.
This world is a "shadow mirror" of reality a mist of sorts...I call it what somone else called it..the valley of the shadow of death.I know that sounds ominous (and it is) however in the long run a good way.Our reality is we are in the process of being "conceived"...no one has been "born" yet (regardless of anyone's belief in their religion).
The solid world is not fantasy at all except to those in the empty world looking blindly out of the Matrix.
