GOD, THE UNIVERSE, LIFE AND MAN

• FOR ME, MAN CREATED GOD, AND NOT THE INVERSE. I EXPLAIN:
• MAN IS CONSCIOUS OF HIS FINITUDE, AND ASKS WHY AM I MORTAL?
• WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO BE FULLY AWARE OF OUR INEVITABLE DEATH, OF BEING TEMPORARY, AND OF MANY OTHER THINGS …
• HOWEVER, WE CAN NOT FIND THE ANSWERS TO ALL THESE ISSUES
• THAT IS QUITE STRESSFUL, SO MAN INVENTED FAITH IN THE EXISTANCE OF A SUPREME BEING, WHO KNOWS THE ANSWERS…
• IF WE BELIEVE IN THIS BEING, WE ARE RELAXED. IT IS BETTER TO HAVE FAITH THAN TO HAVE ANGST
• SO GOD IS THE ANSWER. BUT SCIENCE IS ADVANCING, AND EVERY TIME WE KNOW A LITTLE MORE. WE KNOW NOW, THAT THERE EXISTS – EFFECTIVELY, A “GREAT DESIGN” BOTH AT “MACRO” (COSMIC) AND “MICRO” (PARTICLES) LEVELS. PHYSICS AND QUANTUM MECHANICS
• IT IS AMAZING, THAT THERE IS NO CHAOS … THERE ARE FORCES, VERY SUPERIOR TO MAN THAT REGULATE THE UNIVERSE. WE CAN CALL THE DESIGNER “GOD,” THIS DOES’NT MEANS THAT DESIGNER CAN DISTINGUISH GOOD FROM EVIL, ESPECIALLY SINCE LIFE ON THIS PLANET IS REALLY INSIGNIFICANT ON A UNIVERSE LEVEL, AND MAYBE THERE ARE 10,000 PLANETS WITH LIFE ON THEM. BUT EVEN IF TRUE, LIFE ITSELF IS INSIGNIFICANT ON A COSMIC SCALE SINCE THE UNIVERSE IS NOT “ALIVE”.
• WITHOUT DOUBT THE DESIGN OF LIFE IS AMAZING, BUT WHAT PURPOSE DOES IT HAVE?
• ACCORDING TO DARWIN, “PERPETUATING THE BEST SPECIES THROUGH NATURAL SELECTION”. BUT WHAT SENSE DOES THAT HAVE, SEEN AT A COSMIC SCALE?
• IT IS SAID, AND IT SEEMS LOGOCAL, THAT MAN COMPENSATES PART OF HIS OWN FINITUDE, WITH THE LEGACY HE WANTS TO LEAVE TO THE HUMAN RACE, AFTER HIS DEATH. SPECIALLY YOUR GENES (TO YOUR BIOLOGICAL DESCENDANTS, IF YOU HAVE THEM) AND SOMETIMES PHILANTHROPIC WORKS THAT PRESERVE YOUR NAME IN THE COLLECTIVE HUMAN MEMORY
• BUT AGAIN, ON A COSMIC SCALE, WHAT SENSE DOES THAT HAVE? Our offspring, our race and perhaps all life, may disappear in the future, and even may not be repeated – that is, life as we know it has been an “accident”. YET THIS AMAZING DESIGN EXIST, IN ALL ITS FORMS … BUT DON’T CHEAT YOURSELF – THAT DOES MEAN AT ALL THAT THE DESIGNER IS EVEN AWARE OF MAN, OR THAT IT HAS TAKEN LIFE INTO ACCOUNT
• COEXISTENCE THROUGH THE ORDER (THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE PRIZE, THE PUNISHMENT, Paradise, HELL, purgatory, soul … ARE ALL INGREDIENTS NECESSARY TO REGULATE HUMAN SOCIAL COEXISTENCE – BUT THIS IS PURE human logic, NOTHING TO DO WITH REALITY AND THE COSMIC SCALE.
• GIVEN THE TIME SCALE OF HUMANS (maximum 100 YEARS OF LIFE, AND FEW THOUSAND YEARS OF COLLECTIVE MEMORY) IS NEGLIGIBLE WITH RESPECT TO THE COSMIC SCALE, that MAN HAS BEEN ABLE TO DISCOVER AND SEEMS EVEN ABLE TO EXPLAIN (ALTHOUGH NOT UNDERSTAND) BILLIONS OF YEARS (FROM THE BIG BANG OR FROM THE CREATION OF THE EARTH), OR FEW HUNDRED MILLIONS (since life) or even few million – since there EXISTS THE SPECIES OF HUMANS. THE DIFFERENCE IS SO HUGE,IT IS NOT COMPREHENSIBLE, AND OUR ATTEMPT TO EXTEND LIFE A FEW THOUSANDS OF YEARS, DOES NOT CHANGE THIS PARADOX.
• EVEN IF WE LIVED 500 OR UP TO A THOUSAND YEARS, IT WILL STILL BE AN INSIGNIFICANT FRACTION WITH RESPECT TO THAT COSMIC UNIVERSAL TIME THAT SURROUNDS US. THAT IS THE PARADOX – OF FINDING SENSE TO THE HUMAN, IN A VAST, COLD AND HOSTILE UNIVERSE IN INFINITE EXPANSION
