THE EVOLUTION REVOLUTION
You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
Like it or not we homo sapiens are riding the crest of a tsunamic wave of change that is part of the Information Revolution. Like the Agricultural, Copernican or Industrial Revolutions this progression is causing an upheaval in the world of mankind.
Not since the acceptance of the fact that the Earth revolves around the Sun, have so many of our conceited, anchaic, worldviews been bombarded with such overwhelming scientific evidence that we need to rethink and revise who and what we actually are. I don't have to point out that the answer to this debate affects every aspect of our lives..or do I?
HA! I know that for many people this debate about our origins is pointless, annoying or ridiculous.
Some human beings could care less either way. However the vast majority of Earthlings operate their lives on the notion that a supreme deity(s) has devised, executed and maintained a plan for each and every individual..on a practical level we need to ask the right questions instead of assuming that our forefathers knew the answer.
The fact that in the 21st Century we still cling to deities that our ancestors either subconsciously or deliberately developed with such obvious and pathetic anthropomorphic qualities is troubling to many. Queries such as these are unwelcome and in many instances such 'attacks' on the status quo automatically ensure fierce retaliations..even murderous so-called justifiable revenge!
I explored the Monotheistic worldview for over a decade during the 80s. I abandoned it as the decade concluded and have never looked back. Believe it or not, I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to examine this issue from both sides.
Aside from all of the obvious inconsistencies and predictable shortcomings of meshing human nature with ancient mythological guilt-ridden unprovable ideologies (developed to explain a pre-scientific, unexplored world I might add)...
my cerebral struggle to salvage anything applicable from the literal interpretations of the book of Genesis, were eventually obliterated...and Amen to that.
That absolute here is the answer before you ask the question method of philosophical conflict resolution became untenable for me. Apparently only a select few are privy to understanding the answers to the really, really big questions. To each his own.
As far as I am concerned there has never been a more exciting time to be alive. To actually watch the universe unfold as it should is beyond my wildest expectations. The inevitable succession of Science and Reason over Myth and Superstition will be hardfought, but like past confrontations, Science will eventually win the battle..but probably not in my lifetime.
The freedom and sharing of information is dismantling the power from the various Estates that have enslaved the common man for centuries..
Knowledge is Power.
This knowledge Genie is out of the bottle and thanks to catalysts like the Internet, it cannot be put back.
Sadly, we still witness the effects of the extremist elements of our dominant religions colliding and wrestling for supremecy. Every single day you will find evidence of this in the media.
Unfortunately little has changed for thousands of years, with the exception of how much more efficient we are at killing each other...we have nearly perfected it.
The opportunity to put this argument to rest is at hand.
We must continue to keep the avenues of exploration and discussion wide open! As we explore the human genome, connect the dots with every other species on the planet, we will detail and formulate a rational explanation of
WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE and HOW
we humans became what we are.
The WHY is outside of our present capabilities..but first we have to break some eggs to make that omelette.
The Evolution Revolution is not going to disappear even if you ignore it.
It is presently building steam and the volcanic blast of humans accepting their place in the great scheme of things is about to erupt. A bona fide paradigm shift..One Giant Leap..after so many baby steps.
It won't be an easy transition. There are many individuals and institutions that have everything to lose and they will fight this to the death..literally.
You need to ask yourself ,
Why wouldn't you want to know as much as possible about who you are?
Shouldn't the truth have nothing to fear from even the harshest examination?
Does any of this matter to YOU?
