“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I am come that they may have life, and may have it more abundantly.” __ John 10:10
It is a fact that with all that science knows along with our knowledge of atoms, molecules, proteins, amino acids and all the stuff of life (the building blocks of what we like to call life), we have developed theories and models, that still only end up seeing life generated only from pre-existent life. Whether you believe in the science of evolution or the Creator that breathed life into the ‘stuff’ of all creation, man is unable to prove or to demonstrate in any way that they can create life. If the seeds of life on this planet hitched a ride from some distant galaxy in the universe on an asteroid to be deposited on this earth still does not explain how life is made without the progenitor or life being a form of life itself. It only places this Life Force somewhere else other than earth.
What is the seed of life or that which has life on its own; an uncreated life which shares life in its creations; handing this life on to develop and incubate all of its creation with its gift of life? It is nice to think of models and excuses to try to debunk the obvious but it does not actually accord to the scientific method itself. For everywhere we look from the single cell to sentient beings and even man himself that life is only produced from an existent life. So Who or What is this Progenitor of life; and why do people hate the word “God” that one might accord to this Intelligence that is uncreated and unformed by anything other than His very Own Is-ness or Being?
When science can reproduce an experiment that is repeatable and mixes the proper materials together and delivers a spark that infuses these Legos of creation into a moving, living and breathing entity I would at least say that there is a natural way for life to be generated from an unloving, unconscious material universe.
But then we still have the problem of the same kind when we contemplate the building blocks themselves and the laws which they adhere to; whether chemical laws, physics or mathematics. What proof has ever been witnessed of something created or being formed from complete emptiness and nothingness; the void. Where are the scientific explanations and experiments where from an empty container arises atoms or molecules or elements of this universe. They surely exist in this universe but there is no foundation for them before the Big Bang which we can explain mathematically back to milliseconds after that event. But the event itself and the instant before of that event are a mystery to science and they still wish to grapple with theories that can explain how something comes from nothing. So far their attempts fail and their ambition yields no results.
So from the created Legos of this universe to the instilling of life we have intelligent laws for the first bit, or the material formed from nothing and we have an equally unknown Self Existent Living Being that Breathed into His Creation His own Life. How interesting is it that so many thousands of years ago the scriptures describe man as made in the image and likeness of God. For what evolutionary purpose is it to wonder about our origin and our purpose in possessing life. To be a rock would be to possess existence but no experience of its existence and no desire or drive to perpetuate its existence or create other rocks so that rocks would never cease to be.
I am afraid that science will never stop trying to eliminate an eternal existence, fully Living, Intelligent, Good, Beautiful and wanting to share His Life with a creation that might find joy in their participation of His Life no matter how small. It is a conundrum for men that I fear will be with us until the end of the world.
Evolution it seems, has made a huge mistake to make the most perfected living organism on this earth that still, regardless of his immense intelligence in science, looks to a Beginning and an End for these questions. It seems counter-intuitive that we men are spiritual by nature and that science has been unable to eradicate faith which seems to be written in the heart or soul of men.
“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”
__ St. Thomas Aquinas
“ Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”
__ St. Thomas Aquinas
Perhaps the Legos of Creation is a simple misspelling for the Logos of the Creator.
