Creationism-Life

  1. profile image0
    Deborah Sextonposted 8 years ago

    Everything exists because something or someone else existed before  it. I exist because my mother existed. Without her I would never have been born. A tree lives because there was a tree before it.

    Even things that divide could not exist without the life it divided from.

    Pigs, cows, humans did not just crawl out of water and grow by without something before it.

    A creating force, that which we call Absolute, God, Natural forces
    must be a life in order to create one.

    We sustain life:
    The plants give off oxygen which we breathe, we then give off carbon dioxide and the plants take it in and produce more oxygen.
    All things run in cycles and are in perfect order.

    GOD LIVES!!

      So, who created God? He would need a creator as well.

            Yet you did not answer the question. In this theory you hold to, if everything comes from something or has a cause then God too, would have to have an origin or creator if you will, and that origin another creator and so on. I am well read on the Laws of causality, and the law of cause and effect both in Newton's view and in relating to Quantum Mechanics, and physics. All reiterate the relationship between an event and its cause or origin, and in turn the relationship of cause to its own cause.

            In science and in religion there is a consensus that this Law works well as it is universal and unbiased in its effect and application up to a point then we simply do not know. For instance the Big bang that is so talked about is the most accepted origin of this current Universe and existence, not of existence itself. mathematical equations point to the existence of something before the big bang which from a physics point of view would make since and follow this law. Yet people bend this theory and express it to say something it never did, just as evolution is used to express something it never did. Evolution as Darwin himself stated does not believe men came from Apes, yet popular creationist will tell you this is exactly what it advocates. In Biology We have learned something quite different. In Physics, Chemistry, and geology we learn that under pressure heat and violence that three elements, specifically carbon, Nitrogen, and Oxygen will combine to form Amino Acids, the basic building block of life. We learn all kinds of thing that do not line up with a literal interpretation of the Bible. What does this mean for the Bible then? Nothing because it is a book of moral fables, examples, rules, and suggestions handed down and written by an ancient people to unite them in a common and shared ideology and belief and to guide them in centuries to come. Most of the things we read in the Bible are just good common sense, that someone was bright enough to observe it and write it down is no big mystery.

            The day the Bible become the substance of your faith as a believer, and the backbone of it then you have become an idolater and lost. Take away the Bible and belief remains, as should faith, all this insistence on a book is sad and only denying many from experiencing a life, a life that is a gift. This constant need and obsession with labeling enemies and passing on condemnation is only going to find you in a life filled with hate and anger.

            There is a plausible idea that when the universe began (Big Bang, I guess, though I am no cosmologist -- I assume that is still the best explanation), this was when *time* came into being. So, at a certain point (the "beginning") there is no "before."

            Of course a Christian probably wouldn't like this idea, as I am suggesting God came into being at the same time as the first instant of "Creation", rather than him actually *doing* the creating.....

        Sorry to burst you're bubble here Deborah, but I beg to differ.

        The Universe came to be. The Earth then came to be. Then environmental changes occurred, hence created Human life.

        Nothing created Human life, before there was human life. That's what makes US-the Human Race- UNIQUE!

        I can see how you arrived at your conclusions, however, it is unfortunate that you have based your conclusions on an untruth.

        How I know this untruth, because I've lived through it, practiced it and studied it, in and out, and when all said and done- It's a lie or hoax. However, you choose to look it.

        The doctrinations of religions is exclusively meant to enforce a set of unachieveable goals, so that those who follow, will willingly give up their own free will and fight against their own true nature. All because, a higher cause, such as a mystical supposed God.

        I've been down that road and I can honestly say, in GOOD conscience, there is no god. There is NO higher power looking out for humans. And, it's really sad to learn of the understanding that Jesus' teachings were specifically driven to get people to be their own GOD in their own life and NOT follow religion's false God. And, That's the truth.

        It's sad. Thank you for your time.

                I'm confused. If it is so private why have you been broadcasting it all evening? All I am saying is that, because there exists a word "abolute" with the definition "without limitation" is not proof that there is an Absolute - there *might* be, and there might not (seriously - I am not disputing the possibility); I was just defending the accurate statement of the other poster, that it is a matter of faith, ie unprovable

          If you're a kabbalist as you claim to be, you should know God doesn't have any gender. He's beyond that in Kabbalah.
          He's beyond  Ain, Ain Sof, Ain sof Aur.
          It's never appropiate to say God's 'He'

        In fact the belief that the belief in evolution and the belief in God are mutually exclusive is simply not accurate. For a start, Darwin never suggested this, and he should know! But there are countless thousands (millions) of people who believe in both, some extremely educated, some not...

        The bottom line is this: God could have used evolution to perform creation. (I am not sure I believe this, but I mean, of course he/she/it could have, right?)

                No one was arguing. You said you don't use scripture because you are a Pantheist which means a doctrine that identifies God with the universe. So that means because I study ancient scripture (Not the English Bible) that I don't identify God with the universe.

      If God exists and "wants a relationship with us" then, given that we are all pretty damn different, it makes most sense that "he" would provide lots of different ways to get to "him." I mean, at least this has some kind of consistency to it as an idea -- rather than the "believe my sh*t or else..." line.

      So, the winner... is: The Bahai's wink

        Funny how little the God said it was okay defense holds up in a court of law and facts. Then again religion will just counter with something about persecution and agents of this Satan controlled world and on and on.

I have noticed a surge recently of so called followers of "faith" trying to quote poorly twisted scientific data to somehow prove their faith, and legitimize their own beliefs, and its just puzzling to me. If this is a belief based on faith why the need to prove it using science?

              This is odd. I have noticed the same thing lately. In fact - I asked a question recently:

              http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/28272

              What is wrong with believing in something by Faith? Copyright Mark Knowles wink

              Because I was (and am) genuinely puzzled. And - no one really answered the question. What I got was 11 pages of people trying to persuade me that they had "proof" or "evidence" and their "faith" was the same as my "faith" in my car brakes working when I had just had them serviced.

              I honestly feel that this is where a lot of the ill feeling towards religion is coming from at the moment.

              Take this religionist here as an example. It (don't think it is actually female)  has twisted the meaning of evolution, used semantics to try and prove an unprovable point and created nothing but ill will and arguments.

              Why? because if its/her "interpretation" of science is right - that means my education was wasted and all the knowledge I have garnered is a lie.

              She is telling everyone here they are idiots. No wonder there is ill will. wink

              All to shout it's point that GOD LIVES!, which is meaningless.

                We live in an age where faith is derided and where so many 'authorities' insist that science is the only path to truth. It's not the religious who are persecuting unbelievers these days its the unbelievers who are persecuting those with faith in their religions. The rationalists have set the agenda hence the craving for proof and certainty.

                Sadly you are part of that, Mark.

                If you were to take issue with those Christians who want to ban the teaching of Darwin in biology classes, you would get my full support. If you had points to argue in favour of abortion, sex education for teenagers or any other locus for fundamentalist Christian activity, I'm sure you would get a decent hearing.

                When you round on all Christians and suggest there is something dangerous, unhealthy or crazy about them you leave me far behind.

                Attacking Christians as a group is no better than attacking any other group (race, religion, ethnic group) simply for being who they are.

                    Your attacks on Christians are similar. They are a group you feel safe in attacking. The question is why do you need any group to attack?

                    Usually, this kind of thing is do with splitting and projection (I am all goodness so they must be all badness). Sometimes it is a self worth issue. (I'm not worth much but at least I am British, German, American, White, a member of some master race or other).

                    It's disturbing, like some horrible echo from the thirties and forties.

          Yes according to the bible you cannot show your body. As one other religionist has said here many times, you risk rape wearing a bikini. (No doubt from some sexually bent religionist)
          God does not care if anyone is raped so I guess that scares the bejeezuz out of them!

          From the bible.

            If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

      Creation and separation are a part of Yesod in Malkuth. Not in God. Elohim has no beginning or end. Just unity. El is not a human. Elohim can not be compared to humans. We are small. Elohim is the light. When the universe was created God did not have to separate from anyone. Ain Sof is the Absolute. Keter is unity. The law of separation began only after creation. Below God.
      Because we have to come from someone in our 3 dimensional world is the nature of mankind not God.
      Belief has nothing to do with it. Many people believe but it doesn't mean they work to rise above their true nature. I go by the Hebrew scripture not the English Bible. Semantics does matter.
      Humans are animals with egos. Everything was unity until creation then everything emanated from God. Because of creation (natural laws) everything separated from each other. A woman can not create another human until it is separated from her body. Male from female, complimentary opposites. You can't have one without the other. Up from down also complimentary opposites.
      Elohim the giver humans the receiver.
      Man can not receive the light of AhoVah, because they want to only receive pleasure.
      Mankind is the real creation and all the other things are made for man. The animals go by natural instinct and the thing that separates us from animals is that we can receive illumination, but the ego stands in the way, pleasure and urges. In other words we want to receive but for our own pleasure not for illumination or unity with AhoVah.

        'Creation and separation are a part of Yesod in Malkuth.'
        Wrong. Creation and separation are part of Hod in Malkuth
        If we are talking of material creation
        Of course not in God. that's obvious!


        ' When the universe was created God did not have to separate from anyone. '

        that statement doesn't make sense at all. If you think it does, explain.


        'Ain Sof is the Absolute'
        Wrong
        Ain, Ain sof and Ain sof Aur are. the three of them. They are also the Void.


        'Keter is unity.'
        Kether is more than that.

        'The law of separation began only after creation.'
        Wrong
        It begins in  the emanation of Kether in Binah.
        If we are talking of divine creation

        'Because we have to come from someone in our 3 dimensional world is the nature of mankind not God.'
        Wrong
        Mankind is one of the creations of God.


        'Everything was unity until creation then everything emanated from God.'
        Wrong
        Separation began in  Binah , After the comprehension of Chokmah, just before Creation .


        'A woman can not create another human until it is separated from her body'
        Wrong. Women don't create. God does.


        'Man can not receive the light of AhoVah, because they want to only receive pleasure.'
        Aho Vah is not a Kabbalistic word. It's not even hebrew.
        It's a vulgar translation  to latin

        Maybe you mean Yod He Vauh He ?

            And If you're ill,  does that give you a right to offend ?

              Nothing I said was wrong. If you knew the Kabbalah you wouldn't express dislike of everyone as you do.
              I haven't copied anything.
              You say I offend.
              Where, because I have freedom to speak? because I defend myself? Everyone defends themselves. Even after you said it is the last post to me, you come back to defend yourself and to try to offend me. Why do you expect more from me? I see double standards here on the forums all the time.
              You go to every forum and say unkind things to everyone.

              All you guys here want to be who you are. I have a right to start a forum for those interested, You have a right not to read what I post. I don't understand your problem (everyone's) When I see a topic an atheist posts, I don't go in and tell them they  are wrong. It is always the other way around.
              None of you will run me off.

This forum is full of different people then I am use to. People who have no respect for people's opinions.

          This is utter nonsense and merely serves to demonstrate that you have absolutely no understanding of the beliefs you shout out as true. Regurgitated garbage - as usual from some one with minimal understanding and insight.

          GOD DOES NOT LIVE!!!

          Plus - you are a thief and incapable of apologizing - or backing up your attack on me. Charlatan. I do now see you have credited a link to the work you stole.

          What a shame - now you have probably pushed a large group of people away from what I find to be an interesting if difficult to decipher religion.

          I would stick to the Tarot if I were you, although I very much doubt your readings would be of any value as your ego is so large. No doubt you would tell a client all about you.

          Your "interpretations" are contradictory and based solely on your own personal opinions. Any way - you were telling us we had stopped evolving - now it seems you do not understand how we evolved.

          Please explain the theory of evolution and then you can explain why the theory must be rejected if there was a developmental destination.

          Tribal thinking that will be the downfall of humanity.

            And yes Karma, Kabbalah didn't want to teach the Kabbalah because they knew anyone who used it could be hurt by it. Same Ideal as Karma, use it for evil, reap evil. Cause and effect, reap what you sow..all the same concept. Gagging at a gnat and swallowing at a camel?

            No. It is because umpteen evangelicals have come before you -- and their message is normally that non-believers are going to hell, are sinners, are debauched, and so on, often for believing such things as the geological record of the earth's true age, and other "horrors" -- you probably weren't to know, but any whiff of dogmatism can't help but remind of that...

            It looks to me like it started out as you baiting the trap which worked and it was sprung as intended.
            Saying that after 90 posts its time to fight back is a little misleadig that you werent fighting back from the start.

            Please. This is an internet debate. You cant make someone else look bad or prove someone's beliefs are wrong. You can only make yourself look good or bad and show everyone your own character.

        There are a lot of codes in Kabbalah. I Don't acknowledge yours.

        Anyway, you know ,I'm sure  ,that codes are rather personal,so I assume that's not a code at all. If not you're making a very bad mistake.
        As codes in the Kabbalah  refer to different parts and different learnings, could you please tell me where that code belongs ?
        If that code has to do with your personal researches ,of course I will never know what you're talking about.

        And anyway ,codes in the Kabbalah are written in Hebrew.
