Evolution or Creation?

 

Brain and Mind

The Thinker

The Fundamental Question of Philosophy?
How The Universe started to exist?

A Method of Logic/A Case Study
To elaborate and clarify the issue via An Example:

The Relation Between Brain and Mind!

Let's talk definitions:

Philosophical Definitions

Matter is what you can sense with your 5 senses directly.
Energy is what you can sense with your 5 senses directly or indirectly (tools).
Spirit is what you cannot sense with your 5 senses.

Philosophical Formulas

Materialism = The belief that Matters and Energies have created the Spirits.
Idealism = The belief that Spirits have made the Matters and Energies.
Agnosticism = The philosophy of Doubt. You do not know which has made which!

Materislism => Evolution => Science
Idealism => Creation => Religion
Agnosticism => Doubt => Confusion

The Answers to The Question of Creation:

Science

The Conservation Law of the Matters and Energy in Physics
Matters and Energies have never been created, will never be destroyed, yet they always change from one form to another. The total amount of matters and energies in the universe stays the same.

Theory of Evolution
All elements in the universe has been evolved through millions of years of Evolution to the present form.

Theory of Relativity
All elements are in relation to one another, everything is connected and nothing is absolute.

The universe has formed as of its present form through millions of years of interaction between the inner and outer matter energies and matters transformation from one form to another, which has resulted in existence of all animated and inanimated objects and The Evolution of all life forms, also through millions of years of Evolution Time table. The universe has never been created and will never be destroyed; therefore, there was never a creator.

The limited mind of the average human is always in need to believe in a creator and a creation.

Religion

God is a spirit. God has always been here, is here now, and will always be here in the future. He created everything in the universe.

Agnosticism

We have no answer for the question of creation, we do not know what has happened!

Philosophical Terminology

According to Philosophical Terminology,
Brain: Is made of matter, you can sense it with your 5 senses, directly.
Brain Waves: are energy, you cannot sense them with your 5 senses directly, but you can sense them with scientific tools and measure it indirectly with machines, so still you can sense them with your 5 senses.
Mind: Is made of spirit, cause you cannot sense it with your 5 senses at all.

Above were the philosophical definition of all 3 elements.

An Experiment

Analysis
Now analyze this:
Mind cannot exist without brain.
There is no way that one can think without having a brain in the skull.

Brain can exist without the mind.
Imagine the situation that you are in deep sleep, without thinking or dreaming or having a nightmare, in this situation, your brain is in your skull yet you are not thinking at all; therefore, the mind does not exist. You are in a steady state of sleep with no thoughts.

Do not mix mind with brain-waves, brain-waves are there and can be measured.

So Brain can exist without the mind,
but Mind cannot exist without the brain.

Conclusion

Matters can "be" without the spirits but spirits "cannot be" without the matters. Furthermore, Expand this:

Mind is spirit. God is spirit
Brain is matter. I am matter.

I can be without the God, but God cannot be without me =>
God did not create me =>
I created God

This was a basic simple experiment, example and analysis in logic and philosophy about mind, Brain, Human being and God. This was a basic lesson in Philosophy for beginners, very simple to understand for all.

This called reasoning and logic for beginners. And it was in simple language so all could understand.

Now picture this,

After death, when body transfers to energy, it has nothing to do with unexplained elements or spirits. Actually when we die, eventually the body mass transfers to other simpler masses and also much energy gives away, true that is, but the spirit element which is Mind, totally dies. Remember Mind cannot exist without the Brain!

So there is nothing supernatural about it. Now if you want to call the inner and outer Energies in the body and in the ecology, which controls the whole universe: "Allah", "Lord", "Yahweh", "God" or whatever else, well you can call them anything you want, you can even call them Jane, or Joe, or Habib. But the fact is that they are not Spirits, they are Energies; therefore, technically they cannot be called Allah or God or ....... (A spiritual form). This right there rejects all the holy books! Because according to all holy books, God is a spirit.

Human being is simply too selfish to accept that there is no life or reincarnation in "Afterlife"! You will simply rot, deteriorate, turn to maggots, eventually to soil and then grass. Next thing you know, the cow will eat you and release you as feces. So your afterlife will be in feces form! There will be no rivers of milk and honey, no 70 naked houris Female Angels and 2 pretty pearly white boys, and for sure no heavenly beautiful afterlife or possibly Hellish suffrage! You were not created in God's image! You came from primates, your brothers and sisters were monkeys and you will turn to Cow Feces in your Afterlife. On the Judgment Day or as the results of Reincarnation, you will come back as Cow Feces, that's all. The sooner you face it, the sooner you will wake up from your colorful bubbly balloon life and will become a "Logical Being". Enjoy your life cause this will be the only life as a conscious human being as yourself that you will ever get!

The nightmare of confusion, duality and Agnosticism starts when one for instance is a believer of Dialectical Materialism and Evolutionism, yet also due to Cultural or traditional background he falls into the abyss of Philosophical Idealism or Creationism (Spiritualism)!

Have you ever seen the high level scientists or Doctors up to a scientific research, dealing with Evolution at work, yet as soon as they go to their private lives, you might find them at the Church, then you can understand this contradiction! A good example would be the element of "Evolutionist Christians", a contradiction in contradiction indeed! Now that is what is called an oxymoron!

One cannot prove any of the religious rhetorics, scientifically and via logic. Either, one must believe in logics and proofs, or one must believe in religion, holy books, and the prophets who wrote them, by pure faith.

Dialectical Materialism, Materialism, and Evolution are one entity.
Philosophical Idealism, Spiritualism, and Creation are another entity.

You cannot mix and match the above two, as you please or as you find it convenient!
State your position and make a stand:
Logic or Faith or Indecision?
Science or Religion or Doubt?

But please do not dodge through philosophical terminologies like a con artist!

Either you:

a) Believe in Science and Logic, then you are an Evolutionist.
b) Believe in Religion and Super Natural, then you are a Creationist.
c) Believe in Doubts and indecisions, then you are an Agnostic.

Yet you cannot create an abomination of above philosophies as you see fit and as it gets convenient!

Mind is a terrible thing to be wasted on the story books made for adults, called the holy books.

So, what will it be? Take a stand?


L. Thinker Then
R. Thinker Now

The hardest thing in life is for adult bodies with children's minds to accept that God is a fairy tale. But harder than that is to finally make a decision and stop your doubts as being an agnostic! Either believe in science or believe in faith. Stop dangling like a broken twig, hanging by a stem thread from the tree, blowing by the wind to the right and to the left! Make a stand in your life. Logic or Faith?

More power to all Thinking Minds
