well, I believe that there is some greater force out there. but it certainly did not create us; in fact, to be technical, it created nothing.

any attempt to put this greater force (a la the Tao or God) into words will inevitably scar the totality of the force; after all, we are but small waves in a greater harmony. hence, in that respect, men have created many gods through the formation of many different religions, and none of these truly express "God" as I see him/her/it.

Peace and love,
Tim.

i agree with alot of what was said but i would like to add something.

i think that we made god so we would have someone else to blame when things went wrong all throughout history this has beent the case. im more primitive days if there was a drought people would think that the gods were mad and just messing with them. nowadays this appears in the form of fanatical musilums(sp?) they say that the reason they kill americans and jews is because its gods will. in other words dont blame me blame gods. id just like to point out that im not racist and i was just using that as an example i have nothing against peaceful musilums. thats just my take. peace

*also do u post at yahooka enotake2 whats ur name over there? i ask cause the same post just showed up like 2 days ago there.*

i agree w/ blaze i think a lot of people just make up religion and god so that we can feel better about ourselves and so people can think that not everything is up to them and there is soemthing else controlling their life. so in that sense we kind of created god. i am a full believer in some sort of evolution and darwinism, but then i start to think about why i am even here... and then i have to admit that there has to be some higher power. am i the only one who always thinks about that? isnt it weird that we are just living out our life here, and we have no idea how we got here?? i duno, i always get shit scared when i think about that.

Yeah I also believe that humans are de-evolving, or that human evolution has stopped

i fail to see how you come to this conclusion. evolution is too slow a process for us to be able to say something like that.
we are still physically adapting and evolving to fit our environment. i remember reading somewhere that finger length and shape is changing to cope with keyboards better. which makes sense. the average male and females body shape and size is changing as well. you only have to look at really old houses in england (houses from the 1600's etc) to see that we are much taller now, every door in these houses is about 5' 9" high or something.

i do take your point about survival of the fittest though, thats a pretty worthless concept now, to some degree. i'm am actually worried about the dumbing down of our societies though, people dont need to think for themselves anymore, you can walk through life. the evolution of our consciousness is interesting. i wonder if anyone knows of any articles on the evolution/de-evolution of the brain?
