Humans, Apes and Swine.

    I had a thought while pouring over my thoughts in a science thread the theory of devolution page 4 being the reason I am on the religion forum.  http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/13135

    So I wanted to discuss something with my Muslim and Christian friends about something I read in the Qu'ran and the things being discussed on the science forum.

    In the Qu'ran I have read a couple times that God changed some humans into Apes and Swines.  We know that Apes and Pigs are two animals with brain functions remarkably close to humans.

    Now from the discussion there we were talking about the hobbit woman (18,000 years old), who is an new species who is or was a modern human living along side the homosapein. 

    The homosapein of course being descendant of the great apes...

    While my thoughts aren't so clear something about it seems astonishing to me in that the Qu'ran was written 1400 years ago and it does talk about God's people having evolved but also about God changing degraded humans into apes and swines.

    And from the Bible it talks about two different types of humans, the spiritual from God and the animal ones.

    However bizarre my thoughts might be at the moment and however controversial they may be when I was going over my thoughts on why humans could not have evolved from one common ancestor



    However, is it possible that there are two types of human-ish species that did not evolve from one common ancestor?  I mean... from what I understand in the Bible there are God's people and there are people of this world. 

    And in the Qu'ran there is a God's people and a animal like human. 

    Sorry if this is too overly controversial and I am hoping that we can have a peaceful conversation here while I am trying to sort out my thoughts. 

    I am trying to make order of them but I am not certain what I am trying to say yet. big_smile

    Thanks.

      During all this evolving that has been going on over the past so many thousands of years you would think that we humans had evolved past the point where we need our science to justify our myths and fables.  There you go, thought complete!

      Now on to tackling the tough stuff, like ending world hunger or stabilizing the rain forests or saving the ailing Madagascar evolutionary chain...  But that's just my two cents..  I'll probably go to hell for it..  LOL

    Good. I am a Catholic and eating bacon is not a taboo.
    I never heard this story about people being turned to pigs and apes. Are you a vegetarian?

    You know, Sandra. This isn't as controversial as you think it is. I happened to believe that the US government are biologically developing an army of deformed creatures, somewhere either in the deserts of Utah,Arizona or Nevada. These beast-like creatures are critical to the army formation of the New Age of Aquarius. Now thats controversial. I've gathered facts on this, but I would rather not discuss it now. Maybe I'll write a hub on it later. Its part of a novel I'm writing though. THE REMNANT.

      This reminds me of the tv series Dark Angel.
      A show about transgenic human/ animal hybrids.

        Sadist!  They do turkey 'bacon' and beef 'bacon' but neither is remotely bacon-like.

          LOL

          I have tried those. Nothing vaguely bacon like about them.

          You should try those American dog treats. "Bacon strips," or something like that. They look like bacon, to a dog they supposedly taste like bacon - but they are something else. Not sure what but might be worth a try? Perhaps one of our American friends will send you a packet? lol

    That is a fine looking bacon sandwich though. Bacon sandwiches are not a big thing in the US.

    Always said there was something wrong with American culture........... big_smile

      Love BLT sandwich, I don't feel guilty eating the grease and all dripping from the bacon because of the lettuce and tomato on it.  :-)

      I know! Isn't that true! I had never heard of them until I moved to England and when I got back I was questioning the logic behind not having bacon sandwiches! Now *I'm* hungry too!
