Where Did We Come From?
5/29/2012 11:30:33 AM
The obvious answer is that we came from our motherís womb. We exist because during the sexual act of intercourse, our father provided sperm which fertilized an egg from our mother and nine months later we were born? In other words we were conceived by a miracle of sexual, and we hope loving, unity. Is this the whole story?
For many people who do not believe in God, this is the entire story. But is it? If we go back to the Creation 5,772 years ago, God breathed a living soul into Adam and Adam was created from the stardust of the four corners of the earth and perhaps the heavens to become a living being. Adam was already a full grown youth when he was ďbornĒ and did not come from his motherís womb. A most fascinating story that truly is unbelievable. To further this incredulous tale, God created Eve from one of Adamís ribs. God thus became the first genetic engineer as He cloned Eve from Adam. By all rights, Adam and Eve should be identical twins but they were not because Adam was male and Eve was female. Then in a sexual union Eveís egg was fertilized by Adamís sperm and she gave birth to twin sons, Cain and Abel who had very different personalities and likely different DNA.
Skeptics will tell you that the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is hogwash. Less skeptical individuals will tell you that the story is simply a metaphor. And then you have the Orthodox Jews and Evangelical Christians who will fervently insist that this biblical description is absolute truth. They will also tell you that this is the way manís origins came to be and that Evolution is just a theory and itís the real metaphor not Creation. Your author, Jerry Pollock, believes that God fashioned Adam from the stardust, breathed a living soul into him to give him life, and created Eve from Adamís rib. Where I differ with devout religious people is I do believe in Evolution and that God is the omnipotent Creator of both Evolution and Creation and that both existed in different time frames. Some of us therefore are descendants of Creation and some of us are descendants of Evolution even though evolution of modern humans have been around for tens of thousands of years while Adam only dates back shy of six thousand years. We shall discuss Creation and Evolution in a later Blog Post. It is also worth noting that there is both a Christian and Jewish belief that the End of Days and the Messianic Age begins close to or at the end of six thousand years since Adamís birth. But this too is the subject of a further Blog Post.
Even if you donít believe in the story of Adam and Eve, do you believe that the soul that God gave you, your Divine Soul gives your body life? Of course an atheist would definitely veto that suggestion because there is no God for them. And the agnostics sitting on the fence have subliminal fear that they might need to call on God in a crisis so they arenít willing to take a stand one way or the other. Think about the soul as a vitality factor like the blood as we continue on in our next writing. And while you are at it, think about whether you just might want to take the next step to believe in God. If you canít make this leap of faith then you wonít be able to take the next step. However even if you are stuck where you are, we welcome you to our website and invite your comments to our postings. We also wish you the best for a joyous life.
Before closing, I wanted to share with you a quote from a biblical commentator, ďEven the most objective people have blind spots where their own interests and opinions are concerned.Ē I too am guilty of having blind spots.
