Do you believe that over 14 billion years ago everything in the universe came from a single point in space called the big bang? Do you believe in a multiverse? The theory of there being several universes is very far fetched. Astronomers and physicists have their math that they rely on it to prove everything. If it can’t be written in a formula it can’t be. Well, I know these scientists and physicists are all very intelligent and have there math and their algorithms to play with. I simply wonder who’s right or for that matter who really cares?
Most people just want to make it from one day to the next without getting something that will kill them and hope life will be kind with age. But we often do look up at the stars and wonder about things. Will a comet hit the Earth and kill everyone? You can watch it on YouTube or see it in movies if you want to. But, the fact is, nobody can tell you because these N.E.O.s Near Earth Objects are too small to be seen until they are too close to do anything about it. In other words, asteroids that are getting picked up by Jupiter’s gravity in the process get sling shot to a new orbit that sometimes means being placed right into the orbit of Earth. Some of these astral bodies are big as a bus. Scientists on shows like “Cosmos” and “Nova” and “Space Rip” to name a few, tell us that there have been about 5 E.L.Es Extinction Level Events of which the most recent was the demise of the Dinosaur some 65 million years ago when a huge Asteroid that weight around a trillion tons was the Extinction Level Event that paved the way for humans eventually.
Some people actually think that humans lived the same time as the dinosaur and that humans have only lived around 6,000 years and that the paintings of dragons in mythology are depictions of actual flying reptiles that coexisted with man. How can there be such variation between science and one specific form of religious order? I would like to have a pet pterodactyl and fly to work on it’s back.
The thing is mainly that I don’t think the universe came from nothing. The big bang theory is nothing but a theory, not a fact. Math is abstract. I mean, it’s natural to think that since stars are so far away that they could be zillions of miles away. Light travels at such and such a speed and so on. I know that. Everyone knows about this stuff. But when I look up at the moon sometimes after a rain and the sky is clear enough to see it, I think it’s kind of funny that the moon don’t just get caught in some gravity force and either fly into the sun or fall back into the Earth and that would be the end of everything.
If man (Homo erectus) has been around 1.8 million years since the last mass extinction when the dinosaur were all killed off along with practically every other living thing on the planet, then could it be that humans might have co-evolved on Mars or Venus millions of years ago, when either planet were likely habitable and flew in spaceships to Earth to take up new lives on a planet that seemed to be more suitable for long term human occupation? Now they say Mars is desolate with barely an atmosphere and Venus got out of control with CO2. Maybe they had too many cars like we do now and global warming took it’s toll say, 2 billion years ago?
Theories are just ways science plays with numbers and algorithms. If you believe in science then you will have to believe in people being rats a long time ago. I hate rats myself and if I am a descendant from such creatures why do they, the rats, that is, still exist? For that matter, if we evolved from the ape, then why do apes still walk around on all fours with no thumbs? It seems evolution must be a very slow process indeed.
It is true that all life on Earth is Bilaterally symmetrical. Every thing that crawls on the planet or flies in the air or swims in the ocean, with some exceptions, has sight, dexterity, hearing, ability to communicate, and independent mobility.
I think humans have been human like for billions of years. It is my belief that we are probably not of this world and that the reason we search for other worlds in the habitable zone using the Kepler space telescope is because we are looking back into our very past, into the distance from which we came. We don’t feel at home on Earth and Earth is a hostile and barbaric world. Chaos and turmoil are a human constant. The fact that we keep looking into space is because we want to know what’s really out there and who created us in the first place. I wonder that too myself sometimes.
But I respect science. It’s a pretty good start. But don’t forget that for every theory there is one to counter it and challenge it’s validity. Keeping an open mind is best. It would be easier if we could just take it all for granted like the rest of the life forms of this planet do, going about their daily lives looking for food and shelter and security, but it’s just not human nature for us to just take things for granted is it?
