Has Man Outlived God's Plan?
Adam and Eve
It is said that God created everything on Earth.
All things on Earth whether it is plant, insect or animal fit uniquely into its own ecosystem and become part of that ecosystem, except for man.
Each ecosystem comprises plants and animals that have evolved in such a way as to ensure the survival of the whole system.
Man however, lives across many of these ecosystems and is not intrinsically attached to any. In fact man often breaks up these unique self supporting systems.
At first man was a hunter gatherer and would have been a part of the original ecosystem within the area where he lived. He would have hunted and been hunted. He would have reaped from nature without sowing, but that all changed.
Man began to breed animals for his own food and also began to plant crops. These were both in fairly small groups widely separated and so still had little effect on the rest of the ecosystem.
Then though came technology and with this came change.
Man began to congregate in the same place. These towns had devastating effects on the fragile ecosystem of the area. Man started to grow crops in large tracts across the lands, again to devastating effects.
Today we have the capability to irrigate the deserts, yet we continue to create more desertification of areas.
Today we have the capability to plant trees, yet we continue to create deforestation.
Today we have the capability to clean up our rivers and oceans, yet we continue to pollute them.
Is it really conceivable, that considering the millions of years that it took to build these self sustaining systems, that man was put on this Earth to destroy them?
Is it not more conceivable that man was put on this Earth as a hunter, gatherer to enhance and become part of these systems?
Is it possible that God gave man his intellect, in order that he may recognize the importance of self sufficient ecosystems and thereby use his advanced intellect to help protect the systems?
Would God be pleased with what man has become?
Is it possible that God foresaw this outcome and so that is why he blessed some people with the prophecies of an Armageddon, an eventual extermination of mankind in order to save the rest of the planet, with its interwoven evolution for self sufficiency?
When will we learn that just because we can do something, doesn’t mean that we have to do it?
When will we unselfishly realize that our God given intellect perhaps was not given to us for our own personal egomaniacal gratification but for the protection of the whole planet?
Have our own advances in technology brought us into conflict with God’s original plan?
Is it already too late for man to change and avoid his own inevitable demise?
- Eating Our Way to Extinction
Scientists admit it will be at least 200 years before we step on another planet. Today millions are starving on our planet, yet the population rapidly increases. Will our food supplies last till we can find new habitats?
- Solution to Greenhouse Effect
The problem of the greenhouse effects can only be solved with global co-operation, but how? This suggests one solution that could also rectify some inequalities in the world.
- The Ecological War
There is a war going on between environmentalists and the multinational energy giants. Is it time to change the tactics and why?
- Are Humans the Result of Alien Colonization?
Some scientists believe that colonization of space has already happened. Does this mean that we have been colonized? If so then what happened to the colonizers?
