It is very easy to see where Humanity has come from when you look at our collective Histories all over Planet Earth. We as a species, through evolution have gradually evolved from the weakest, the slowest, the most defenseless creatures, to now the most destructive, brutal and heartless, but all by choice.
Through the use of larger brains we have the ability to reason in the moment and in the future, and because of this we are capable of projecting thought. We can see past the present moment and question what comes next. Next minute, next hour, next day, next year, next decade. No other animal does this!
Understanding that our past was one that in essense we barely survived and that our competition did not, only by a slime margin. Our brain size enabled Humans to create language, thought, tools,weapons all in order so that we can move forward, having no other fate than simple existence, no different than today.
Our ability to think also came with a lot of unnecessary baggage, the ability to believe in the make believe. The reasons are many but mainly because this ability to ponder all questions also meant that there must be answers to each question and as we evolved we had no answers to anything, so we had to invent answers.
Along comes our make believe World, of Spirits, Gods, Superstition, luck, miracles. At the time this fit nicely because one did not have to have facts to use these make believe answers, only that one believes in the answers.
Fast forward to 2010 A.D., the World as we know it has given us the many answers to the many questions we have asked through the different areas of Science. We now know that we can prove without a doubt many of the same things we could not prove in our past. We now know that the Sun does not revolve around the Earth. We now now that there are billions of Stars in Billions of Galaxies, each having billions of planets orbiting them. We now know that the Earth is not flat, we now know that that Earth is some 4.5 Billion years in the making and that the Universe and Solar system since the big Bang is roughly 14.4 Billion years old. We now know that the Dinosaurs were wiped out from the impact of a 9 mile across Comet/ Asteroid/ Meteor, some 63 Million years ago along the coast of the the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. We now know about plate tectonics and why we have Earth quakes, We now know why Hurricanes in the Atlantic evolve from the dry desert winds coming from the African Continent, onto a small Island chain that eventually creates the right conditions to form weather patterns that become Hurricanes. We now know why Tornadoes form. We now know the mechanics of the body we have in order to stay healthy.
We now know that cause and effect rules the Universe in every aspect.
We now know that a make believe God has nothing to do with anything.
We now know so much of what we did not know in only a short time ago, and yet we still have this need to believe in the make believe - religion.
With all that we now know, how can anyone continue to actually believe or think that there is a floating cloud man in the sky making decisions for all things?
Religion itself is all belief and no facts.
All hearsay, and no proof.
Why do we allow ourselves to use what is not there, only to justify our existence anymore.
We have the answers people!
There are no miracles.
There is no luck.
There are no Gods, and never were!
The World is at a tipping point because of the need by religion to impose it's own ignorance on all creatures of the Planet.
The Human race is destroying itself and Planet Earth, and it is doing so in the name of religion and a make believe God, that has never existed, and never will exist.
Wake up Human race, there is still time to right this catastrophic wrong that we have created for ourselves.
There is no End Days coming, no Apocalypse, no Heaven and no Hell, no reincarnation.
There is only Humankind's need to make up answers to justify War, to justify greed, to justify racism, to justify ignorance, to justify bigotry, to justify intolerance, to justify, hate and fear, this, when the real answers are right there in front of us, both physically and visually!
What we now know is that everything is made up of energy, at different wave lengths, different speeds. That we have a Spirit, and that this Spirit has a fate that is determined only by our collective actions and not by the Super Natural Being.
Your life, and my life, from the conception of sperm and egg to the last breath is not determined. You and I will determine the outcome by our own choices, and the interactions of billions of variables happening all the time.
Your fate and mine is what "we" will make of it.
This means your life and mine can take one of many courses and journeys, and the limitations will be by our own choosing.
Choice, consequence, and responsibility.
The gift of life, is life.
It is precious, and it will only come once.
Don't waste it.
Every day that you wake up again, is a good day!
Peace to all.
