Re: Oliver Sacks Believes Religion is a Human Invention
I wanna say that there's alot of unexplored science behind Creationism, first of all, because in no possible way could you say anything to contradict the theory I have. I have alot of respect for psychologists but it makes me sad when they deny the possibility of creationism, especially when it comes from someone who thinks they know how to analyze behaviour when in fact they simply cut off possibility instead of embracing it, thus failing to see their own behavioural flaw.
It's simply the fact that we live in a copy world. If you have ever read the Secret Book of John, it sheds completely different light on creation, and there is alot of things in that book that (Well, I believe) accurately describe Genetic Memory taking an active role in it. Whatever it says about anything else is moot for this discussion, but I believe that in a metaphorical way the rest of the text describes (To a tee) the physical dimensions of our universe, both material and immaterial. It all depends on how you look at different levels of existing and understanding them all can be tricky.
In essence, wherever our world existed before, it most certainly was created from memory of it. Using this as a backbone, can you really deny either concept (Creation versus Evolution)?

The 21st century is experiencing an Asianization of politics, business, and culture.
- Our theories about the world, even about history or the geopolitics of the present, tend to be shaped by Anglo perspectives of the Western industrial democracies, particularly those in the United States and the United Kingdom.
- The West, however, is not united. Canada, for instance, acts in many ways that are not in line with American or British policies, particularly in regard to populism. Even if it were united, though, it would not represent most of the world's population.
- European ideas, such as parliamentary democracy and civil service, spread across the world in the 19th century. In the 20th century, American values such as entrepreneurialism went global. In the 21st century, however, what we're seeing now is an Asianization — an Asian confidence that they can determine their own political systems, their own models, and adapt to their own circumstances.
Research has shown that men today have less testosterone than they used to. What's happening?
- Several studies have confirmed that testosterone counts in men are lower than what they used to be just a few decades ago.
- While most men still have perfectly healthy testosterone levels, its reduction puts men at risk for many negative health outcomes.
- The cause of this drop in testosterone isn't entirely clear, but evidence suggests that it is a multifaceted result of modern, industrialized life.
Can sensitive coral reefs survive another human generation?
- Coral reefs may not be able to survive another human decade because of the environmental stress we have placed on them, says author David Wallace-Wells. He posits that without meaningful changes to policies, the trend of them dying out, even in light of recent advances, will continue.
- The World Wildlife Fund says that 60 percent of all vertebrate mammals have died since just 1970. On top of this, recent studies suggest that insect populations may have fallen by as much as 75 percent over the last few decades.
- If it were not for our oceans, the planet would probably be already several degrees warmer than it is today due to the emissions we've expelled into the atmosphere.
