In response to, "So can you tell us where you're coming from, Magyka? Just curious."
When I look at the moon at night, I see a perfect sphere. When I took geology courses in college, my professor told me the earth is a near perfect sphere. It seems most planets are spherical shaped. It just seems to me that if a planet was created from particles and naturally, it would not be spherical, but rather mutilated in some sort of odd-formed shape, like a crater or star.
I have a question for all of you:
Should the universe and life have been created "naturally" from science, how do human beings and other forms of life have such things as "feelings", "love", "dreams", and have such complicated things such as hearts, brains, immune systems, digestive systems, etc... Of course there is the theory of evolution, which makes sense, from the evolution of an ape to the human. Perhaps that is accurate and true, but that brings up my next point: If humans evolved from apes, then "we" are the same as other animals like deer, cats, and bears, just with different features and abilities.
I like to talk about this stuff, and I respect everybody's opinion, but I will state what I feel is not possible:
Universe is created from the collapsing of dark matter, etc..
Universe expands and eventually craters and other forms of matter come into existence.
Planets develop, having specific features based on location in the atmosphere. The sun happens to be a big ball of flame that never stops burning, the earth allows life because of its "perfect" location, and the other planets just fall into place without much ado..
As earth is created, a very complicated process allows layers, mountains, water, lakes, and other features to develop thru time.
(I haven't studied this much) Basic life begins, such as bacteria.
Bacteria mutates and expands into more complicated forms of life such as animals and trees.
Eventually the human being takes over the planet.. and most humans/animals have things such as hearts, brains, can talk, make friends, learn, etc... Fine, the brain and heart were created naturally, but to talk and think and feel, are non-physical features of life. How could that have happened naturally?
I do believe life has evolved, but not from nothing.
Other things I ponder:
The sun is in the perfect spot, not to burn us, not to keep us cold, but just right to allow life to exist.
The earth has remained in the perfect distance from the sun, never moving away or closer, at least enough to end life.
Even if the universe was created naturally, and everything happened from the big bang, one ultimate question remains: What about before that? One could say there was nothing. You can't have space without time and time without space. But there had to be something before that which has allowed the "big bang" to occur.
I know I probably made some innaccurate statements, but I'm not a scientist. I just want to talk about things, not make any serious arguments.
And another question, on Unsolved Mysteries from a long time ago, I remember seeing an episode that showed aliens being found on earth and the CIA/FBI/Government covered up the findings. I really don't believe the story, but I'm curious if this really happened and what the real story on this is. I mean, isn't that funny that the aliens landed in USA and not somewhere else on this enormous planet. But I find the story possibly believable, at least from the way Robert Stack made it seem.
And one last teaser: Obviously man doesn't know everything there is to know. Perhaps there some things in life we will never know until we die. No matter how intelligent life becomes, there will always be the unthinkable, the unknowable, and the impossible. For example, there still remains a lot of mystery to dreams, spirituality, and non-physical being. What do you think?
REMEMBER, this is SCIENCE as someone explained above. Please respect everybody's opinions!
