THE POINT WHERE THE DARWINIAN THEORY OF EVOLUTION AND THE Vedanta Philosophy Coincides- PART 1
Namaste. This is my first blog I am writing after three or four attempts of starting a blog. I wasn’t actually sure about this before. So I kept procrastinating and now I feel like I got to do this. It is like a command to carry out from my masters I bow. I am really excited about starting my new blog and share my thoughts here, maybe because I am bored of an 8 to 8 work schedule these days.
Since childhood I used to wonder about death or why people die. As I grew I was actually scared to sleep at night thinking what if I won’t wake up. I believed people would be ignorant of the world after they die. As I grew up to be a nineteen year old I began to realize that death is not something to be scared of. It would be a very relaxing transition phase like sleeping after a tiresome day.
For me it is in fact an interesting thing to talk, think or conclude about birth, death, reincarnation, evolution or collectively called as life. Since I always enjoyed telling people stories here I am trying to put this in a story way. I sincerely request everybody to read the story with an open up attitude. Agreement or disagreement is solely your wish.
The Story Begins……
Long long ago, around 4.5 billion years before Earth was this molten sphere with volcanoes and all. Later it cooled over time. Even after the solidification there were no oxygen and were full of toxic gases and volcanoes. However after lots of chemical reactions eruptions and collisions of meteorites Earth has formed a layer of atmosphere suitable for the life to begin.
Whatsoever Earth’s formation is none of our business right now. But one thing to be remembered is that it was formed once long time ago.
The Real Beginning
The Earth without life is just like a school without students. There is no purpose for a school without students. It is just a building made of matter. That is why the beginning of life is called the real beginning of the story.
Some people believe that Earth and its life forms were created by God by waving his hands over the surface.
People who believe in Hinduism believes that Lord Brahma created life on Earth and the world is being maintained by Lord Vishnu and it will be destroyed by Lord Shiva. They are all considered as demigods in Hindu mythology.
Some other people believes life was being created by a Superhuman Alien by disintegrating his body.
Then there are people who believes it was all a natural process which happened as a result of certain chemical reactions paved the way for beginning of life on earth. They believe that a single celled organism was the first living thing on earth.
Whatsoever I don’t believe that some white bearded grandpa sitting over the clouds created the Earth and its life forms by waving his hand. But what the all other groups of people believes seems true to me. Maybe life was created on Earth by some alien superhuman. Maybe that superhuman alien would be the one called as Lord Brahma by religious people. After that was a slow and natural and beautiful process. Like the atheists and science guys believes, first life form on earth created was a single celled organism, but by the disintegration of the superhuman alien. The superhuman alien was from another planet. Since he was from another planet doesn’t make him the first life form on earth.
In one way or another all these theories have one thing in common. Every living thing on this planet are created from a single creature, which means we are all connected genetically.
