Do you understand how human life was formed?

There once were just very simple cells, all by themselves, performing all necessary functions as individuals, alone. Slowly, over the course of billions of years, these cells started coming together instinctually, naturally forming multicellular organisms. Once they began working together, because they no longer had to perform all life sustaining processes alone, specialization became possible. Work, life's necessary functions, was efficiently divided.

See, cells, even on the individual level, breathe--they move, they sense what is around, they ingest and digest, they reproduce, they are born and they die. It is no coincidence that the human body, and all living organisms, do these same things. We are a community of cells, we are made of the things we do, we are individuals made of individuals.

Cells, all by themselves, have a form of intelligence. As they combine, as they work together, that intelligence expands, it multiplies, and so we are pretty smart. This is evolution; it happened by input and output as one with the surroundings, an exquisite jive. We don't live by breathing oxygen by some miraculous happenstance, we live by it because we grew along with it--we, oxygen and humanity, made each other and it is the same with everything else. Life, all of its parts, comprise one machine which has developed, not by something seperate from what is, but rather by life itself. The very beginning may be unknown, but the thereafter is a work of logical art. Biological art.

Cells have come so far as to create an awareness of themselves; another name for this is humanity. We've forgotten, though, how we made it to this advanced state, how we developed our astounding awareness, our intelligence, our conscience, and now we fight our natural progression instead of continuing our work together. Survival may be for the fittest, but to be fit is to be unconflicted. We could work with what our specialized cells have created, what has been given to us, but instead there is fighting. Conflict is everywhere--humans won't let themselves grow. I hope it's a passing phase.

Think. Your brain is in your head, but your mind is throughout your body and even outside of yourself. Your mind is everywhere you know, it is all that you can imagine and it is many things you can't even conceive.

I respect your POV

Yet I was told this by public unionized teachers in public schools. Forgive me for being skeptical.

Btw, the dump the 'tea' in public teachers.

Hey, I just believe what

Hey, I just believe what makes most sense to me. Believe it or not, my post was not a result of anything I learned in school. Maybe it's what they tried to teach me there, but I don't know because I didn't really learn anything from my public indoctrination center.

Actually I came to this understanding from a book I read recently called 'The Biology of Belief'. The author became a believer in God after his life long study in biology. I definitely am not in line with the whole message of the book, but the guy got me to view cells very differently than I had before. He placed a great deal of emphasis on how environment and belief has a great deal to do with the very makeup of our physical self.

To simplify. A lump of clay was somehow inspired.

Remember man you art dust and unto dust you will return.

The Last Objectivism blames an actor for a given Act.

"In the beginning heaven and earth were created." That establishes a logical necessity. What is, is.

I would say cells have instincts, they react to the environment.

At some point the organism freed itself in some degree and became aware of itself as a self with a past to be understood, a present ever in the making and a future to care about.

It is a subjective question to wonder how inspiration was created in me. How did I become free enough to consider how I became free enough to wonder.

Oral tradition comes to us, that Adam wondered the same, and asked questions about the past, present and future.

Free includes debt-free!

personally

I do not believe in evolution, I am a young earth creationist. God is from out side of this universe since he created time space and matter, so since none of those things have a hold on him and almost all of my understanding has to do with time space and matter I really can not even begin to comprehend God.

Different perspective

My take is that god is not outside the universe. God is very much here and humans are its finest creation. It makes the rain fall and the plants grow. Walk through a forest, visit a museum, fly an airplane, be intimate with a loved one... The wonders of life and consciousness are too interesting for a universe without a spirit or force driving it, or maybe pulling it. How individuals interpret that force is up to them and will be respected by me.

I agree with your assertion about not being able to comprehend god, however I am of the opinion that the study of psychedelic plants and their relation to humans through shamanism is the important step in getting as close as we can to an understanding of what is referred to as the afterlife. Of course shamanism is supposed to be an ancient tradition which contradicts the young earth theory, but I just though I'd share a different point of view. Good day to you!

Our offspring inherit some of

Our offspring inherit some of our characteristics, yet they are also quite unique. A child evolves from his or her parents. As a great deal of time passes, as these changes accumulate, the general attributes of a population change. This argument, to me, is seperate from an argument about god. In other words, what I'm saying does not preclude, nor does it willfully exclude, god.

I have my own spiritual ideas, and while I don't share your image of the supernatural, my thinking does not include the belief that there is absolutely no god. I think it would be accurate to say that we see god in different places, or in different ways, in a different light, or maybe in the same light but from different angles, or...

Goofy Atheism posing as logical 'deduction' LOL!

Where did those 1st single celled organisms get their internal super computers(DNA strands found in every cell of every living organism)?

The bible claims that men are living in a fallen state, Atheists claim we are risen.

Atheists also USED to claim that the archaeology would verify their straight line monkey-------man evolutionary hypothesis...oops again! LOL Now they show a tree with hominid dead ends and NO missing link between monkeys and modern humanity.

100 years ago another deducer said that 'pilt-down' man was fossil evidence of evolution, for over 40 years the 'scientific' community accepted pilt-down man as 'settled' 'science'. Not until 40 years later was this hoax exposed.

Ever since then, 'naturalist' after 'naturalist' has proclaimed to have found fossil evidence of our evolutionary past, with the greatest 'naturalist' of them all, well after Darwin of course, Louis Leakey actually claimed to have found two pre-human species.

But within just ONE year of each of these events other jealous 'naturalists' have destroyed each and every one of these claims.

With 'naturalists' having such a pitiful record, it is easy to see why the 'deducer' has been so easily confused. HAHA

I'm having a hard time

I'm having a hard time understanding how your reply relates to my post. I'm not trying to claim that there is no god.

What ARE you trying to prove then?

Obviously cells didn't 'evolve' from nothing, and like I said every cell of every organism that has ever lived has or had a strand of DNA.

Also my post directly challenges your assertion that humans have ever 'evolved', the bible says we have 'devolved'.

naturalists claimed they found proof of your claims that organisms evolve. But then other naturalists disproved them.

You say we evolved, I say that is goofy.

Not an atheist? Sorry, but you are making the atheist argument so forgive me for jumping to THAT conclusion.

I'd rather

have a mind opened by wonder, than closed by belief.
(not my quote but I love it)

Relax. Enjoy the beauty of humanity, which includes all kinds of different wonders. You can't prove your belief either my friend:)

I'm not trying to prove

I'm not trying to prove anything, just offering my perspective, my interpretation of things. I certainly don't expect everyone to adopt my view, especially if you believe what's written in the Bible. I just had something in mind that I wanted to express, a new and satisfying personal discovery that I wanted to share, it's as simple as that.

We can agree on one thing, though--I am definitely goofy.

Folks 'round here, and

Folks 'round here, and everywhere else too, can get a little emotional about their belief systems sometimes. Not everyone enjoys discussing and comparing their own to others. Some people enjoy it such as myself. Some just want theirs to be the one right way. I think the ability to critically analyze and even possibly alter one's own belief system is important for psychological growth. Keep letting us know what's in your head so we can choose to read it or ignore it.

Thanks, you're definitely

Thanks, you're definitely right about that. To me, there is nothing more satisfying than a brand new belief.

Thanks for sharing your

thoughts on this I found it interesting. I have many questions but having difficulty finding the words to put forth a concise question sentence.

I have the same hope as yourself that we humans can find a way to get along peacefully.

"Life, all of its parts, comprise one machine"

When has a machine ever been made without a maker?

Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

Tao Te Ching

The Tao Te Ching's take on your question is Chapter 4. It's the eternal mystery.

Tao is a depthless vessel;
Used by the Self, it is not filled by the World;
It cannot be cut, knotted, dimmed or stilled;
Its depths are hidden, ubiquitous and eternal;
I don't know where it came from;
It came before Nature.

I don't know

Nor do I pretend to or belittle believers of either theory.
