So How Did We Get Here?

Monday, January 23, 2012
Posted in: random musings

This is a debate that gets tackled in our house regularly. Did we get here by way of that mystical bloke who lives in the sky, who sees fit to let babies get raped and murdered, or did we spawn from bacteria, which eventually evolved?

If we were monkeys, how did the first monkey get here?

I know that there are a million theories, but I find that this morning, I’m fairly fascinated by the subject.

Anyway, what do you guys think?

    I think it is both.


  • Angela Low.. nice quote.

    I’m Christian… I believe we were put here by God. Sadly, as long as free will exists, brutality, grief, pain and suffering will as well. God could take all of that away, but he’d be doing so by stripping away free will.


  • I’ve got a couple of quotes that I think are fitting:

    “Both religion and natural science require a belief in God for their activities, to the former He is the starting point, and to the latter the goal of every thought process. To the former He is the foundation, to the latter, the crown of the edifice of every generalized world view.”

    And then:

    “It is not the possession of truth, but the success which attends the seeking after it, that enriches the seeker and brings happiness to him.”

    Both by Max Planck


  • Frankly, I don’t know. But I’m a skeptic and an atheist, so I fully admit I don’t know and relish the quest to discover the answer.

    Or to be simple, I believe we are all star stuff.
