It is a strange feeling to find myself in general agreement with you. Although I can't jump in with both feet on every detail of your posting, your juxtaposition of spirit, mind and body is critical to any deeper understanding of the human condition beyond Honey Boo-Boo, SNL and the Boy Messiah.<quoted text> You're spot on bro. There were a few different types of prototype humanoid beings that lacked the brain capacity to survive the wilderness, weather, & eachother.
You're also spot on about the Bible. The Bible was written by the greatest minds of primitive people, to tell a story to the not so great minds of primitive people. Written in fairytale form, it actually speaks the truth. People read it wrong, & assume it's nonsense. One must first understand that the Bible was written by more than 1 person, from more than 1 place, by people of more than 1 culture. This why most people see contradiction throughout the Bible. It's not actually contradictions, but 2 different people, from 2 different places, under the intense pressure of 2 didn't laws from 2 different cultures!
The concept of good & evil (God & the devil) is the struggle of man between our mind & spirit. The human soul wants to co exist with the rest of nature, all working on 1 frequency. That's the good in you (the God in you).
Our minds control our bodies, but can't overcome temptations. Like an unconscious belief that we're God, master of the universe! This concept between the 2(spirit & mind) is God vs the devil, with the devil leading the way in most of our lives. Until we as a civilization learn to put our spirit before our minds, we will continue to think of aliens as supreme beings. We will continue to remain in this loop of destruction (hell of our own creation)!
We once were led by our spirits, which allowed us to create some of the worlds anomalies. The pyramids of Egypt, the Mayan structures, the Nasca lines ect... At some point, we put our minds in front of our spirits & we've been misguided since.
Jesus (God in the flesh) is the symbol of inspiration for humanity to put our spirits back in front of our minds. His return symbolizes humanities return to spirit guided beings.
Now read the Bible from that stand point. You'll have a better understanding!
Entertaining Spirituality without acknowledging the Secular is foolhardy and visa versa. A totally Secular world with no regard for human spirituality is cold, shallow and terminal.
Whatever the driving forces are behind human Life and evolution, pursuing it in only a secular, mechanized fashion is like attempting the reduction of motherly love to DNA Coding and DNA Coding to mathematics and reducing Ontology to simple building blocks of Physics.
The Spiritual will always be the shadow cast by our discoveries.
