I pause and truly am amazed as I look down from above, as if I am a space-traveller, from my `space-ship' gazing down at planet earth, and zooming down on `man' - the ruling species on earth!
Over six billion of them, male and female - of diverse colour and creed, but still basically the same species [monkey has 70 over species] - mankind is ONE, one single species. Over six billion people, living in over 160 + countries all over the world, in 6 continents [or seven if we count Antartica!] - the dominant species, the intelligent species, the only upright walking, talking species - and MANY OF THEM LOVE TO PLAY A GAME WITH STICKS AND A WHITE BALL, HITTING IT INTO A HOLE! [Man! What are they doing.....the space traveller wonders!]
They have built huge metropolitan cities. They have created amazing flying objects. They have produced great creations from the phone, the computer to great weapons of destruction.
Man, that includes you and me, is certainly an amazing creature, and ruling supreme on Planet Earth. Where did he come from and where is he heading? You pause to ask some of them, and they do not have the answer! They know not their origin. Some believe they evolved over billion of years from some carbon particles. Others believe in a Creator. Some others believe in a super-intelligent being, from other planets, passing by.
Down here on earth, I conclude that : "It cannot be all just by chance!" or "Unexplainable!"
I begin to search, seek, ask, research, about this possibility of a Creator! That is on for tomorrow!
[While waiting for the next blog, if you are reading this, let me pose you with a great puzzling question, which I hope will provoke your comments. Imagine you are a space traveller, flying over earth....in your space ship....GOOGLE EARTH....you look down on earth in 1945...just after the 2nd world war......you see poverty, old buildings, broken buildings....nothing exciting......people seem simple, poor and few are overweight or obese. And , on the old roads are cars, some cars.....and many parts of earth do not have many cars.
You fly off to visit Mars and Jupiter....and return to gaze at the blue planet....and it is now 2008.......What a change in 60+ years!: you noticed.
QUESTION: Where did all that change come from? I mean materially, and structurally. From dirty brown, bricks in 1945 to dashing steel and all the amazing things you can see in 2008. After all, the earth is a closed system. Nothing dropped in from the sky or Universe.
Is the question understood? i am not referring to the intelligence of man and his amazing creatons. I am referring to a situation eg. an orphanage where there is no food in the fridge, and there are twenty starving kids. And, In a flash of a moment, there's food on the table. Where did it all come from?]
