I believe there is a creator, as I think that design of a
living thing is too complex to just have started. But I have serious doubts
about the concept of god as described in the various scriptures.
It’s possible there
was a creator. The question is, if there was, then why did he create
everything? What purpose did creation serve?
Is it possible that a creator, created everything, just
because “HE COULD”? No purpose whatsoever?
If you’ve seen the movie Prometheus, an AI Robot that was
created by humans was asking a human why they wanted to meet their creators.
The reply was, “To meet our makers, get answers,
ask why they made us in the first place”
The AI Robot asked the human; “Why did you people make me?”
The Human replied; “Because we could”
The AI Robot replied;
“Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you, to hear the same
thing from your Creator?”
Think about reality, what we see with our eyes. The planet
earth functions because the life on it is predatory. In order for life to
exist, there is a food chain. Humans being on the very top, all the way down to
the cell. Everything eats everything in order for life to survive. Do you enjoy
a good steak, or how about some fried chicken. Then you are part of the food
chain. Even if you decide to be a vegetarian, a lion will not care, and if you get
in his way, you will be his dinner for the day.
Think about what kind of Creator would deliberately design a
Wasp that injects its eggs inside a caterpillar so that in a matter of days,
the eggs hatch and then start eating the caterpillar from the inside out till eventually they
eat their way out, but being careful not to kill the caterpillar as they burst
themselves out. Once out, the caterpillar loses brain function and starts
spinning a cocoon to protect the larva that breaks out of the caterpillar. There
are literally hundreds of examples like this. And nowhere in the bible does it
say animals are suffering as the result of man’s sin. It’s just the way they
were “Designed”---or evolved.
A wise, loving Creator could certainly do a better job in
designing life without the necessary pain and suffering. Plants can grow and
flourish with just soil, rain and sun.Why couldn't he design animals and humans without the pain and suffering?
There is also another possibility that has to be considered
if a person wants to believe in a Creator. That being that the Creator died. He
was not eternal like we have been led to believe. And thus we are on our own.
That would be another explanation why he has not interfered in human activities
and stopped all the suffering.
Perhaps if there was a Creator or Creators, that lived, they
created successively. One dying and another replacing and finishing the work of
our local physical universe.
For example think about how many times humans started a
project like the Golden Gate Bridge. The original planners and creators could
easily die and another group could take over and finish the project. Perhaps
something like that happened.
It is said that in another 100 years humans will finally
create life. Either Artificial machine or organic. We are already in the
process of building or growing body organs. Many of the ones that started in
this endeavor have died, but the project continues and new scientist and
doctors pick up where the last left off.
If we do create life,
what would be the purpose—TO BE WORSHIPED---I doubt it. The reason would be
BECAUSE WE COULD CREATE!
So it is possible that we were created by someone or the
process was started by something and they died. Then another group took over
and either lost interest and started another project in another part of the
universe or the project continues. We personally will probably never know.
And as hard as it is to imagine, it’s possible that all
creation was created for the simple reason that;
