Atom and Evolution

“To be, or not to be: that is the question…”
– Shakespeare…Obliviously…


I came across a thought provoking discussion on a YouTube clip of the film “The Devil’s Advocate.”


Since those many months ago, this idea has been lying in the back of my mind for days without end; reminding me constantly on nights when I am unable to sleep that the universe is not as it seems. We often think of religion being what ancient peoples created and used to describe as a “normal scientific event” that happened in their time that they had no other way, shape or form of explaining. Which is what the Adam and Eve = Atom and Evolution theory is loosly based upon. But the idea that both could be fact is a mind-blowing topic to consider. To show that there is no right or wrong, and “God could exist, and essentially all religions worship the same creator.”

Does Adam and Eve really stand instead for Atom and Evolution? I like to think so. But I also like to believe in the opposing side of the story – that there were actually beings named Adam and Eve and a God being omnipresent. Could religion and science work together? Yes, they can. Is there actually a God, a single entity watching us or did we simply create him only because we found no other way to comprehend the things that happened in the universe? Maybe its both. All I gotta say is it’d be pretty damn nice to know the real truth if there is one.


Here’s the rest of Shakesphere’s “To be or not to be
The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark”

Hamlet – Act 3, Scene 1

“Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.–Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remember’d!”

I’ll leave you with this:

  1. A thought-provoking post. 🙂

    I think the mere fact that we ask ourselves “Where do we come from? Where are we going? Is this all there is?” means that this world is not all there is.

    Why would we ask “Is this all there is?” if we did not know, somewhere deep down in the core of our being, that the world is not as it should be — if we did not know, deep down in some ancient part of us, that we were created for more than we can currently see with our eyes, feel with our fingers and toes, hear with our ears, smell with our nose, taste with our tongue, and imagine with our mind?

    Why would we say to ourselves “Life isn’t fair!” if we didn’t know, deep down, what it meant for life *to* be fair?

    1. Right. There’s even evidence and scientific proof that this universe, this life is a hologram. So, anything’s possible. If only humanity would start gearing towards a society similar to Star Trek – minus some of the aspects of the Federation of course – rather than continually fight over who’s opinion is correct or incorrect because non of us, not even scientists themselves even know what the hell we actually are.
