The Creation

Why are we here?

It’s a question that has plagued some of the greatest minds of all time. The genesis of life on earth is hard to wrap one’s mind around. Can something so complex as life have come into being by chance? Can the amazingly intricate DNA molecule and the corresponding chemical processes involved in turning the genetic code into the building blocks of life just have spontaneously appeared? How can you explain consciousness without the aid of a creator? And if all these are possible without a prime mover, how does one account for the very existence of the universe?

Still, it is hard to justify the existence of a creator. Why would an all powerful being beyond space and time arbitrarily decide to create humanity? Did He just get bored one day? Why would a supreme being not be self sufficient and feel the need for company? And, even if there were a God, what would He be composed of? Electrons? Neutrinos? Love? And where would such a being come from? What is the cause of the first cause?

Contemplating where life came from can become a chicken and egg sort of process. However, I think I may have solved the riddle. Maybe, like, some space aliens came down to earth and were like, “lets make a new species and put them on this planet for some reason” ’cause they’d be really advanced, you know? And then they’d, like, make people and since they’d be really really advanced with lasers and stuff, I bet the first people to see them would be, like, “oh man, I bet these weird alien people are gods because they can fly and do stuff like that.” And then they probably left and, like, we kept on telling stories about them or something and that’s what became religions and stuff.

When you think about it, it’s the only logical explanation.

  1. i enjoy your use of the word like.

  2. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John 1:1-5
