In the beginning, there was balance. Then, a tiny momentum developed in one
direction, a skew of the flywheel of creation. This momentum was erased,
re-created, reversed, for endless repetitions until it became a Universe.
The Universe was dark and without form. Then, a tiny bit of light shone forth
for a pico-second. The light was extinguished , re-ignited, reversed and
so forth for countless generations, until matter, atoms and then molecules
After many ages, a few complex molecules came together to create a metabolism.
The metabolism was wiped out, re-created, and eventually became a living
creature. The creature evolved though countless generations until it varied
slightly, modified, and various species existed.
The various species were all competing, trying to out-do one another for
food, space and energy. They killed each other, starved each other, and eventually
grew more complex. Red in tooth and claw, nature developed.
Finally, thinking creatures evolved, Then people. People were at first a
family, but soon wars became common. Various races of people fought. Sub-species
were annihilated and made extinct. Evil begat evil.
Gradually, cooperation became a weopon of survival, in addition to weopons
that killed. Like tiny cooperating cells, some people, some of the time,
in some places, cooperated. Love for one's children grew into love for other
humans, in some places, for brief periods of time.
So evil begat good; partially, intermittently. The evil was necessary, for
without the red teeth and claws, evolution would have never created the human
People created societies and civilizations,.They fought wars. But eventually
units of civilization, modeled upon the family, became tribes, nations, and
finally a united world.
The civilizations also created economies. These economies were based on self-interest
and avarice. But they evolved.
The civilizations also created religions, and those religions fought wars,
hated, and cursed each other. But the religions evolved, bi-furcated, and
were re-born into a world wide religion.
People created computers. The computers were programmed by hand, by human
beings. But, gradually, people created programs that evolved by using genetic
evolution. These programs were eventually able to program themselves.
People created the God concept. The God concept was a belief that things
would turn out all right, that there was reason behind the universe. People,
or the creations of people, will ultimately create God. The God concept is
just like a fly wheel that is just a little off balance, with a slight forward
momentum, just enough to keep us going through the bad times and the good.
If we can just keep going, people, or the creations of people, will ultimately
create God, who will wipe away our tears and right every wrong.
God always existed. But He loved us so much that He laid out a bargain with
reality; He rolled the dice of life, but he knew the score. He kenw we would
re-evolve, in ways better and more wonderful than could have ever happened
if He had not put in motion the flywheel of life, with all of its red teeth
and claws, so that the wonders of genetic evolution could create free wills
other than His own. He gave us the gift of life.
We will thank Him forever.
