Consciousness

“We gotta make a change…It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes. Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live and let’s change the way we treat each other.You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do what we gotta do, to survive.” (Tupac Shakur).

Science has come a long way from what it used to be. I would argue that it has come full circle. Once an institution that had no time for the soul, mind, spirituality or any such notions it is now turning over a new leaf. Science started this whole concept of “if I cannot see, collect or measure it then it doesn’t exist”. This school of thought argued that the concept of the soul or consciousness was myth. We are basically higher thinking computers or robots controlled by our brains.

The issue at hand was that science wanted to be able to have man fit into its concept of the natural world. One that could be calculated and explained by mathematical equations, to translate loosely. Thus, science abandoned the concept of the soul or consciousness because it just didn’t fit. The greatest irony in all of this is that to be human one had to have choices and decisions, fall in love or even hate. In other words to study the human, science tried to destroy the very thing that made us human.

Thankfully, this ridiculous notion is being abandoned and the result is that scores of scientists are meeting with religious leaders around the world to try and come up with other concepts of trying to study and understand human beings. Good luck with all of that.

The point I am trying to make is that human beings have always historically tried to be in control. All the ugliness of past wars, racism, sexism, slavery, and even in sports, the prevalent concept has remained control. Adolf Hitler wanted to control the world, Osama bin Laden wants to control Israel and the United States, the Enron executives wanted to control more money, even Roger Clemens wanted to regain control of his fastball at 40 (okay maybe I went too far but you see where I am going with this).

This is why most people refuse the concept of a God or a maker. We would rather have that God show himself to us on our own terms or else He doesn’t exist. This control is what science craved so badly that they wrote goodness and love out of the script.

Some things just don’t need explaining. When you close your eyes and you get that certain feeling inside you, maybe you should just take it for what it is. We don’t need to know why we feel very protective of little children or why we prefer certain kinds of music over others or why flowers are so pretty. Or maybe we already know and we just don’t want to accept it.

  2. A World Full of Hypocrites
    The most popular TV shows are CSI – Law & Order – Criminal Minds – Forensic Files – and numerous daytime shows of courts and law such as Judge Judy and Court TV. The fact that the world loves these shows illustrates how much of a hypocrite most people really are. They love law and justice until it applies to them.

    “Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness” -Romans 2:15

    When you do something wrong you know it is wrong because God’s law (Ten Commandments)are written on your heart. This illustrates why the teaching of evolution is a complete lie since animals do not have a conscience and nor do they have the ability to reason. God inscribed everyone with his moral code whether or not a person owns up to it or not.

  3. great piece, brother.

    the recovery of the possibilities of “God within” each of us is something I see happening in science today…string theory, the concept of multiple universes, the idea that Design is scientific…all point to a recovery of that which is essential to true humanity…the Great Sacred dimension innate.

    what we see within we look for beyond ourselves.

    keep up the beautiful, poignant writing.

    LOVE CONQUERS ALL!

  4. Blood for oil has always been the policy of the United States.

    Who knows if our supreme imperial bully nature is worse than the others.

    In any case, people will die so others can steal precious resources.

    That is human nature—greed and lust.
