Evolution of Man?

April 30, 2009

Hm, the evolution of man.

This is a topic I have not thought alot on.
I have though been fascinated about the way we’ve evolved throughout the years that have been documented in history.

The idea that we stem from the cave men who once lived, is purely fascinating. Whether we’ve evolved from any form of monkey species before that – I’m not sure. And it is not something I will take a side on as I don’t know enough to make an educated guess.

But all that is known to us, after that point, is great. How is it that man could adapt from what we were to what we are now? How it is that originally the skins of animals we killed which served as the only thing that was worn, evolve to a society of fashion and glamour?

Fascinating really. But when I look at the development we’ve made in the last few years, I can see how such an evolvement is possible. I mean, look at the latest technology for example! The ipod! What an additive to our technological society. Fantastic.
And laptops? Brilliant. They get smaller by the day.

Hm. Found a funny little clip on youtube. It explores the evolvement of man and weapon. Its so true its funny.

Enjoy.

I question God.

April 26, 2009

God.
Real? Existent? I don’t quite think so.

Before I begin, I should reiternate my religious status – I am agnostic. I DO believe there may be a God. Sure, why not? Anything is possible. But is THE God real? That’s another matter altogether.

From discussions this week in my science and religion classes, other students have proposed the idea that God is all good and all knowing. He’s a saint. A dear at heart. He can’t created evil within our world. He has just allowed humans free will. And from that, we humans have condemned the fate of evil on ourselves. Absolutely not God’s fault.

But I say, how ISN’T it his fault? If God was all knowing, then he should’ve KNOWN that he was creating a kind of animal who could enforce such evil into the perfect world he made. Is this not contradictory then, that he has done this and yet still is considered all good? Does this make God not as fantastically pure and happy happy as we all thought he was to be?

Another thing. Jesus. If God was all good, and lovely, and a darl; why in the WORLD would he create a man – his own son for that matter, and send him to his death? Why mould a being to be killed by its kind? Yes, Jesus was born and sacrificed to clear others for their sins. But in doing so, God would’ve condemned a man to pain and suffering! How is God then considered the wondered being he is? How can he sit back and watch his son be nailed to a cross!

If I were God, I would’ve just discreetly forgiven everyone’s sins. Rather than bothering to put a man in pain just to prove my point that I’m here, watching their every move.

Yet another thing. If God was supposedly wanting to be discreet about his influences on our world – the butterfly effect, why would he allow religion to exist? Why be discreet on what he does, yet have people be educated about him and have us humans know of his existence?

I question God. I question his way of working his magic. I question his existence. I question all these contradictions that occur in regards to a being that’s supposed to be perfect!

Maybe this is why I can’t stand to believe in a single god. There is no way I cannot question their methods. I am a believer of the existence of Gods. But I’m not a believer of God’s existence.

God is in the stars!

April 16, 2009

Anyone read the Telegraph today? Interesting story.

Is God gracing our stars? So far, the Hubble Telescope has found two very interesting forms of energy within our stars – one only just found recently!
The “hand of God” is a combination of lights emitting from the remains of a supernova, creating a whole image that resembles the a hand.

It’s calculated that this star phenomenon is approximately 17000 light years away – that means that this would’ve occurred 17000 years ago! The span of it is approximately 150 light years!

Does this suggest anything? Was this one of the first glimpses of God in our Universe? Did he make himself evident 17000 years ago?
To brush this wispy questions aside, would those of strong religious backgrounds use this to promote their religion? Try and use it to manipulate others who are more ignorant?

Guess we’ll wait and see.

This is another that was taken awhile ago – the eye of God.

5 mins with God

April 10, 2009

I found this really interesting video!!

It shows God in a pretty bad light, but its a pretty interesting video. It’s an animated clip of a conversation between a Yak of a journalist and God – depicted Michaelangelo style (hope that’s how you spell his name).

It’s a pretty good watch…

Was Jesus real?

April 5, 2009

I’ve always wondered…. was Jesus real?
Was there ever a man that stood out to sacrifice himself in the name of “cleansing” others of their wrongdoing? If so, that’s very brave.

But even so… was this man really the son of God?

I’ve always wondered whether there was really a man called Jesus or whether there was really a man that stood for Jesus and was just named that afterwards. It’s hard to think that there is a God truly intervening in our lives. Just the fact that many don’t SEE or have any personal contact is already getting me to be a bit iffy.

I relate this idea to another religion that I’m more familiar with and have come to a conclusion – my personal opinion on the existence of Jesus.

Like Buddha, I believe that Jesus was in fact a man that lived within the age told by the Bible. He was most of a very nice man – a man who sacrificed alot for his surrounding people. He was most probably one of the best, loving men you could ever find. He might have even sacrificed himself at the stake, for a reason which is similar to that stated in the Bible.

But all that stuff about him being the son of God? I don’t think I’ll believe unless there’s stark, solid evidence sitting right in front of me screaming “PICK ME UP AND BELIEVE YOU IGNORANT GIRL!”

It is the same for what I believe of Buddha himself. I do believe that there was a man who tried to make himself more enlightened by starving etc. But in thinking about a whole heaven built in the clouds above us, supporting a family of Gods and Goddesses…. I’m not quite ready to think that’s the truth – just yet.

Maybe I’ll be convinced later on in life. May I’ll meet them after I die & they’ll say something like “They told you so!”

But until then, Jesus and Buddha would be legends to me. But the whole intervention of spiritual life stuff? That will remain a myth.
