DID GOD EVOLVE ALSO?

in life •  4 months ago

Book of Genesis: Chapter 1
King James Version
1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Every now and then I read a book that forces me out of my daily routine thought process and puts life in a much different perspective…in this case…just how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things…

For this I thank “The Future of Humanity” by Michio Kaku for these humbling insights…after all….black holes…multi dimensions…dark energy…worm holes…laser travel…future space colonies built by robots…quarks….squarks….string theory….an expanding universe that someday tears itself apart…are just a small sampling of the concepts one wrestles with while reading this book…

And I couldn’t help but walk away thinking that despite how important we think we are as human beings…“small” does not come close to defining our place in this vast expansiveness….at our core…we are just an evolutionary anomaly….we are “animals” that in some point of the evolutionary progression obtained an ability to process and manipulate the information that our senses gather along with the ability to emote…feel…and more importantly…remember all of it...

So what was it about the evolutionary process that decided we needed these abilities to survive?…why did we need to “know” what we thought and felt? Was this the point in the timeline that “god” stepped in? Could a “god conscience” have been evolving parallel to the physical evolution of our planet? Could “humanness” have been a need to keep “animal” type beings from becoming extinct? Did “god” evolve to keep us alive?

As it turns out these evolutionary changes provided the instincts, insights and intuition necessary to keep the existing species from extinction....this new living species now gained the ability to assess and manipulate its environment as a way to survive…

So instead of a species that survived on pure instincts and had no greater perception than the exact moment it was in…we evolved to be walking, talking encyclopedias….we developed memories and emotions….we introduced values….standards….a road map to survival….”god” introduced us to humanity….

But our existence today is nothing more than just a train stop on a continuing time line that has its own force behind it…what we look like today….how we live today…will look nothing like this in one hundred…one thousand….one million….one billion years from now.

Michio Kaku offers many insights into what the future could look like….such as ways to extend lifespans….colonizing other planets by utilizing self-replicating intelligent robots…mining asteroids….dumping our minds into databases and transporting that knowledge by laser into other galaxies….bionic implants….just to note a few the many amazing possibilities he writes about in his book….

Meanwhile as it stands today.... we represent the best and worst of a “human” species developed over millions of years….in order to survive going forward I wonder whether “humanness” will outlive its usefulness as its replaced by a more “machinelike” species…and if it was a “god” that evolved to direct us onto the human path….whether it continues to evolve with us or also outlives its usefulness as “mankind” is replaced by “mindkind”….

God is from everlasting to everlasting, He did not change nor evolve. He is the same from the beginning, the almighty and loving God.

James 1:17
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

Amen @elizahfhaye! Arguably, the single most important sentence in the Bible, as without it, why would / should we care about what follows ...

Psalm 2:4

"He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them."

Always sobering to me how widespread the "theory" of evolution has come in its acceptance as established scientific fact.

NO! It is not! For one simple example, dear Steemians, if we adhere to the scientific method, the Second Law of Thermodynamics refutes it …

Isaiah 45:22

"Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other."

Thank you for this post @bobreedo. Should stimulate our thinking. Upvoted!!

If God is Mother Earth, than what does that make Jupiter, or Alpha Centauri?

·
·

yes!! Most times we think we can do it alone but without God we are nothing.

I read some of your articles and found them enjoyable...

Re vote me bro U are amazing

We are all "god".

Perhaps...thanks.

God does not evolve, it us who evolve our thinking of him.

·

I was leaning that way myself...thanks for that interesting point.

God doesn't evolve, he's perfect. Just as we don't "evolve", if anything we're trying our best to corrupt ourselves by merging with machines. Yet God predicted even this type of idiotic thinking as well Ezekiel 36:26"A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh." artificial hearts, anyone?
People worship science as a religion, don't be a fool - it is just another religious sect that came from the age of enlightenment and trans-humanism is nothing more than the worship of self.

Thanks for your thoughts.

i just gave you and upvote please upvote my last post also @limitray thanks

Nice article and probably a very interesting book but I personally do not agree with a lot of the ideas expressed. It all depends on what you view as 'God'. (An English word created very recently). 'God'is the primary source of everything in exisistence, no matter what you believe there would have to be something which fits the bill.

My personal belief is that 'mind' or 'consciousness' predates material life and has since the beginning actively designed better means for it's expression. Science tells us that 'Evolution' does this but it is not clear on how exactly. In order for evolution to work, there needs to be some level of consciousness overseeing this and deciding what will work better next time.

·

In the beginning there was the word...thanks for your powerful food for thought...

The almighty God is alive. He who believes in God is saved by his soul. Nice to meet you. I am a friend from today. I wish you all the best and healthy. Your friend lucky7777

·

No doubt...a lot of unanswered question on the way things have been taught for so many years in the school systems...definitely a lot to ponder...thanks.

·
·

No problem Bro, I have spent 56 years searching for the truth and I am just now 57 and still encounter the lies I have held onto too long. Smile. dont wait to long, truth will set you free. Shalom

The logical, scientific answer is yes. Everything evolves. Everything adapts. Everything changes. With that said, it is possible God has also devolved.

·

Hmmmm...a different but interesting spin on things...thanks.

·
·

The ultimate question I have is where does matter come from?

In other words, where did God come from? If you believe in science, then whatever substance God is made of, he would have had to come from somewhere.

Searching for answers to these questions make life more interesting.

Stay curious my friends!

Thank you.

Undoubtedly the mystery of life and the creation of the universe remain an enigma, I am still undecided between religious and scientific theory, greetings!

·

Greetings to you as well...I guess that's why we are "mortals"...thanks for sharing.

·

After you have seen Him, there's not denying Him :-)

I don't think so. Man evolved by choice and free will.

·

Some would argue whether we truly have "free will"...but I understand your point...thanks.

I think evolution is not real

·

It has been questioned...thanks for sharing.

Answer is yes, God is nothing but an image of supreme and sublime soul. and our ideas of supremacy and sublimity has evolved over time.

·

That they have and will continue to do so...thanks for sharing.

God iS GOD not change... He is inmutable He is complite and totally finished.

·

As it has been written...thanks for sharing.

Hola muy interesante tu post ,veo que ha generado muchas directrices un tema muy polémico,saludos,espero me visites pronto

·

Sorry I don't speak that language but thank you for commenting.

In my opinion i think religion and science dont fit together. U made an amazing post my dear friend.

·

Interesting opinion and thanks for kind words.

Religion is a thought with either no explanation or foolish explaination !!!

·

I understand your view...thanks for sharing.

·
·

wipe time, space and body entirely and find god

·

Sound easier said than done...thanks.
