It’s early, you’re sipping your coffee, you want something odd to pique your interest and make you realize that maybe your boss isn’t the biggest screwball on the planet. I’m happy to oblige with a few words of wisdom from a sagacious UK writer.
I would like to suggest that recent arguments from readers should not be about creationism versus evolution.
There is much evidence that humankind was created and then evolved, and that we are in a constant state of evolution.
Created and evolved? Two sentences in, and I’m confused.
The Biblical Adam and Eve story is most likely an allegory about the progress from innocence to knowledge.
But now I’m reassured. Reason my yet rule. Yes, the book of Genesis is allegorical for something, it is not a literal account of creation. Now if only we could get more people to comprehend that … wait. What looms ahead?
Not only is there an afterlife, there is a before life. Life is a continuum. We are spirits dipping in and out of incarnation as part of the evolutionary process.
Aaiieeee! Whipsawed into lunacy! My brain hurts!
Readers should read books by regressionists such as Michael Newton, Brian Weiss, Diane Cannon [who?] and others to see the fascinating stories of not only past lives, but lives-between-lives. Plus the books on near-death-experiences by Raymond Moody and others. The evidence for life before and after death is too great to be ignored.
Oh, sweet Isis. Sure, that’ll resolve the evolution/creation controversy: we all just have to accept reincarnation, past-life regression, and out-of-body phantasms. Hey, do you think we could convince Matt Nisbet to fire up his crusade against these wackos, instead of nice, rational atheists? I’m willing to pin the blame for the creationists on weebly New Age twitterings. Look! There’s even “New” in the name! And they sell more books than the “New Atheists”!
