Creation, Evolution, Faith, Fanaticism

Your faith or mine. Evolution vs. Creation.

Not Intelligent Design

Everyone has the right to believe whatever they want, as long as this does not become a danger, or affect negatively others. I prefer to believe in a Supreme Being creating us, maybe because I like the idea of an Intelligent Design.

Imagine yourself walking on Detroit when suddenly you hear several explosions! You look at the sky and see millions of pieces, from the surrounding automobile manufacturing plants, flying in the air. But to your amazement, they start to build by themselves, the explosion gave these pieces the right movement, and height, and not only that, even screws are getting tightened, and axles, tires, transmission, fluids, gasoline, tank, wheel, tires, it’s even getting some custom paint job. Can you imagine one in a zillion chance this explosions doing that, and at the end the car falling on the ground, starting itself and working fine for several years?

Everybody knows creation is mostly a religious matter, but most people do not know that evolution needs faith. Evolution is still a theory, and although is thought in schools as fact, nobody has ever proved this theory, in other words, if you believe in evolution, because you want to believe in these so called “scientists”, you need FAITH… yes, no matter how ugly it sounds to you, if you chose to believe in evolution, that needs faith on your part, because you are believing something nobody has ever proved. Thing is, religious people know that believing in creation is faith, but evolutionists believe they are very scientific. At the end of the day, you should have freedom to choose what to believe, the wrong thing to do would be to become a fanatic, either a religious fanatic or a “science” fanatic, prove it to yourself or have faith in it, but don’t become a fanatic. Oh, and do not teach theory as fact, please, be honest… and have some faith, any faith.

// Rattle and Hum // Love Rescue Me

Love rescue me
Come forth and speak to me
Raise me up
And don’t let me fall.
No man is my enemy
My own hands imprison me.
Love rescue me.

Many strangers have I met
On the road to my regret
Many lost who seek to find themselves in me.
They ask me to reveal
The very thoughts they would conceal.
Love, rescue me.

And the sun in the sky
Makes a shadow of you and I
Stretching out as the sun sinks in the sea.
I’m here without a name
In the palace of my shame
I said, love, rescue me.

In the cold mirror of a glass
I see my reflection pass
I see the dark shades of what I used to be.
I see the purple of her eyes
The scarlet of my lies.
Love, rescue me.

Yeah, though I walk
In the valley of the shadow
Yet, I will fear no evil.
I have cursed thy rod and staff
They no longer comfort me.
Love, rescue me.

Sha la la la etc.
I said love, love, rescue me.

Yeah, I’m here without a name
In the palace of my shame
I said love, rescue me.

I’ve conquered my past
The future is here at last
I stand at the entrance to a new world I can see.
The ruins to the right of me
Will soon have lost sight of me.
Love, rescue me.

I just wanted to share this song with all of you, it tells a story… it asks for help (duh!), but it does it in a very poetic way. Can you sing? Can you ask for help when you need help? When you need for someone to rescue you?

Thieves and Crosses

I’am currently reading the book “México Acribillado” (Mexico Riddled -as in riddled with bullets-) from author Francisco Martín Moreno. I like this book so much that I started looking for more books of his own at his editorial house called Alfaguara (México) and found this other book of the same author titled “México ante Dios” (Mexico in front of God). At the website they used the following quote for this book:

“En tiempos de las bárbaras legiones, de lo alto de las cruces colgaban a los ladrones… Hoy, en pleno siglo del progreso y de las luces, del pecho de los ladrones cuelgan las cruces”. Anónimo, siglo XIX.

Let me translate this to you as truthful as possible:

“In times of the barbaric legions at the top of the crosses thieves were hunged … Today, in full century of progress and lights, crosses hang from the chest of thieves.” Anonymous, XIX .

How truthful this is today. Just turn your TV on and watch. Almost every “religious” channel asks for money. And how about those “Pastors” that steal money off their congregation, aside from their salary, and use it for personal purposes.

If you have something to say about it, leave me a comment. Read me next time.
