The World is Not Ours

More thoughts on religion

with 2 comments

If you have any slight interest in psychology and the religions of the world, then you should know that many say that religion ‘started’ because of man being a social animal. So isolated people would ‘imagine’ something and basically came up with religion. I am not going to deny your views, nor will I affirm them, for I am not an agnostic, nor am I atheist, yet I also don’t believe in any religion. I am merely a human. If you’ve read my previous post regarding religion, you already know this. So my hypothesis on religion is that the fact that everything we know of in this world was made by something. So, similarly, religious folk will tend to believe that the only plausible explanation for life on Earth, and for the universe and for anything material is that God, or the gods, created it. Ever since we grew up, we have always known something being built ultimately by someone else. That toy you played with, made in a factory run by people. The carpet you walked on was made by someone. The computer you are reading this on was made by someone in Taiwan. So naturally, some extremely bored people must have wondered where life in general came from? Where did the cosmos, as they said back in the day, come from? So evolution is often ruled out here, because many will say that the chances of us just so happening to come around are slim, and the possibility that we evolved from a monkey is apparently terrifying. To put it simply of course.

Oh, so in case you were wondering if there is intelligent life elsewhere, I say yes. Many religions will say that we are the only ones. The possibility of this is utterly non-existent. Not to mention it would be a waste of space, both literally and figuratively. So where did life come from? Well, I for one don’t know. My theory is that life started deep in the ocean, on the ocean floor. While the atmosphere of the Earth was inhabitable, deep in the ocean life started. Eventually came up the water column, and evolved into the current life forms we know today. Where the planets came from? I agree with the Big Bang Theory. It’s a quite sound theory if you’re willing to listen to it. The major question in that is where the initial particles came from. That is a question I could not answer, and if you attempt to think to long about it, your mind will probably go insane. Space and time is a concept we humans can’t quite grasp.

So basically religion stemmed from man’s social attitude and man’s arrogant belief that everything was ultimately made by someone.

  1. You started and finished with the same point here, which you bring up at the beginning in the context of it being widely known. And most of what’s in between is summary. So that’re the ‘thoughts’ here?
    Sorry 🙂

    • Oh no problem at all! Actually those are my thoughts… I just agree with the widely known standard… although I’m not quite certain if ‘everything being made by someone’ is really a widely known standard.
