I recently had a discussion on religion and the “all mighty God” with my psychiatrist and I asked him what his thoughts were on it. His conclusion was pretty much the same as mine, it is simply a crutch to lean on when there is nothing else. That is where “faith” comes in. You can’t be a believer in “god” without faith. You need faith to believe “God” exists. But even with faith, does he really exist beyond our minds?
I do not believe we were created by a greater power, I do believe we evolved into what we are today through natural processes, though I’m not ignorant enough to reject the possibilities that our evolutionary transformations were not influenced from sources beyond our own planet. No, not aliens /sigh… Then again… Some people make you wonder.
I’m talking about contamination from the outer regions of our galaxy, or even beyond. The human race knows very little about our own planet, let alone what’s floating around our solar system. We can only speculate with what we have seen. Everyday we are making new discoveries and rewriting what was taught as fact in the past. We know very little about where we came from or even more so, why we’re actually here. Are we just another form of parasite to the planet we call earth, trying to ravage it for all we can? It sometimes feels that way. What comes next, I often ponder about that too… I have little “faith” in the big picture of our evolution. The human race will be it’s own demise. It’s hard to believe in “our father” when there’s so much hate amongst his children.
PS. Upon writing this entry, a strange thing happened.. I wear a necklace with a crucifix on it. I received this as a gift around 20 years ago from a very religious friend. I have never taken it off since receiving it. I wear this because it symbolizes a time when someone believed in me enough to go out of their way, not only to buy it, but also get it blessed by a priest. It meant a lot to me, it still does.
But, on writing this entry, it fell off. Not the necklace, just the crucifix, the necklace is still clasped, unbroken, the link on the crucifix itself is still intact…… I hate it when things play with my mind like that… was it a message?. I’ve called to him many times, just to be ignored… Strange!…..
