Since the dawn of religion, an arguement has exsisted. Is there, or is there not, a God? Is there an architect of the universe, and all life in it? A God who is concerned with the affairs of man, omniscient and omnipotent, and who can read your thoughts? Or, is Earth just a result of an event that occurred billions of years ago that has gradually evolved and adapted to its given conditions? And in turn, grew to house the ability to support life. Being an Agnostic of sorts i tend to lean towards the latter, but if proof to the contrary arose i would gladly convert. It seems its Evolution vs Creation or more commonly known as Science vs Religion.
This may basically be the entire arguement. But I say we're not asking the right questions. What if, for example, there is such thing as monotheistic God who did create the universe? Who's to say he didn't create it for the purpose of evolution? A God poured etheric energy (meaning, In ancient cosmology, the element that filled all space beyond the sphere of the moon, constituting the substance of the stars and planets. Conceived of as a purer form of fire or air, or as a fifth element relative to 'otherworldly energy') into some sort of containment for it, and over billions of years it evolves to take the form of planets and stars and other physical entities which in turn evolve to house there own forms of life? The ultimate creation. Until the time when the product of his creation, being of its own mind and body, takes his initial creation and does what it does best and destroys it like a parasite. Who's to say this hasn't happened previously to our current occurance? And maybe it was God who held unconditional love and faith in his creation to one day, hopefully, evolve into something beautiful or even perfect. Molded in his image? These are things we do not understand. But this most definately does not mean that they're inconceivable.
Another perspective; throughout time man has been given evidence (whether it is considered substantial is debatable) to the exsistance of alien life. UFO's, so-called abductions, sightings of humanoid beings etc. All evidence pointing to an elusive, but still plausible, race of higher intelligence. Assuming these UFO's are machines (as opposed to a living organism) we must apply the rule 'a creation is only as complex as its creator'. Besides the Roswell, New Mexico, incident* there has been little to say much about the actual physical evidence. But im sure we can safely say that these constructions are presently beyond our grasp. therefore, being unable to understand something, for these beings, as simple as a form of transport , its almost certain that they're that of a higher intelligence. Furthermore, in light of the fact that we currently have no knowledge of another form of life in our immadiate galaxy, we can ask: are they from this galaxy? are they even from this universe? or, taking a leap, this dimension??
So, lets investigate the basics behind dimensions. We've been categorised into the 3rd, taking a step back in intelligence and ability (basically) is the 2nd and obviously the opposite (i.e. going forward in intelligence and ability, BASICALLY) is the 4th and it continues forward through even higher planes of awareness. Ive also read that the 4th dimension is timeless, which implies its inhabitants would be also. Would it be so wrong to suppose that maybe this 'race of higher intelligence', being timeless and therefore much more omniscient, conducted an experiment of evolution in a lower plane? and/or in the very, very early stages of homosapien developement, maybe they intervened to point us in the right direction, the right direction being to follow in their own foot steps (molded in THEIR image?) as depicted by the mayans, who worshipped Gods very similar in image and description to our modern day extraterrestrials. Maybe it was these beings who could see our wayward and illogical (or emotional) capacity and decided to abandon the experiment, losing faith and ceasing to support and guide us. Essentially, they realised a poor investment and cut their losses (not suggesting humanity was initially a business to be manipulated!)
I am no academic, I've never been one. Im inquisitive into the origins of man and our purpose here presently, or in the future. These words are no more than simple observations and speculation. I put no stock or faith in them unless they can be proven accurate. I'd love some constructive criticism to fill the holes, and some elaboration for maybe a bit of illumination.
