Good grief.
You have an actual theory? Or do you think the string theory can give you some insight.
You sound a little vexed.
I found that usefull information T0 +400,000
Means i have to maybe review. bummer.

It's hard anough keeping up with all the theories and develop an understanding since sooner or later it's all about maths.
But i learned not to underestimate posters. They may seem so jolly innocent but brains sharp as knifes. Sometimes you just have to wait a bit.

Why Eve hadn`t be as adam?why she has different DNA? that`s the exat question God want us to ask,in order we may know that there are an intelligance that has caused this differentiation,for we can reproduce.And there are sigh everywere: the plants,animalsin couple ...the mounts,the diversity,intrractions and colors of all things as if to tell us they are originated by something all-able in this univers;but we choose to blind ourseves for that we can follow our lusts and desires.
Like i said, that is what you think now. And how everybody told you to understand it.
But that is not what was written. And something we can not deduce from the names in their original meaning.
Okey let's go with hmans.
What if they had been listening and the serpent just wandered about eating insects in the rainforest.
Well than you wouldnot be around.
So that can not have been the meaning of the story.
The prototypes eyes were opened like the open eyes of the gods (still elohym-the consortium), so then they know abot consequences. It's not shame, but the veil taken away i.o.w. they became aware of their nakedness.
They got knurd (Terry Pratchett) which is when you are so sober that you can not deal with the sudden realisation of waht life is actualy about. So they try to shut the harsh reality out again. Or get un-knurd, in the book this is achieved with a small glass of alcohol. So reality becomes bearable.
The difference is that god does not need a small glass of alcohol.
Ultimate dispenser of justice. So fertile soil and wide birth will live exposed and will feel pain and see death.
Who, in the face of these great truths gives a jot about trifles like lusts and desires!
Therefore we find no mention whatsoever.

That's like saying 42 is the answer to everything, life, and the universe. So what exactly is T0 +400,000 with no point of location.

Time zero + 400,000 years, location everywhere.

But yes i sometimes also like to read a bit more. Read a lot from others, contributed a lot, but i was absent for months so always curious whats new.

You started great..long posts very informative.

2 quotes (other forum long philosophical discussions about the awareness process of humans, and half a year later it bears fruit)
Evolution as a process of revelation and self-manifestation.

I think of that underlying One in immanent terms, a being or life force that dwells within the universe and all its forms, rather than a Creator from beyond who forms a world that is "other" and separate from its own Self.

So you had to take some post on some board to deal with everyday bureaucratic issues, and found your niche?
Usually people run away screaming. That would be plants..eh democrats.

How do you know God could be outside his creations and then became his creations? Ever heard of Pandeism? I'm somewhat a Pandeist.

I believe in this claim:

"It is therefore most particularly the belief that the creator of the universe actually became the universe, and so ceased to exist as a separate and conscious entity."

but I don't agree with the concept of Deism alone:

Deism (that the creator-god who designed the universe no longer exists in a status where it can be reached, and can instead be confirmed only by reason)

Why do you believe this? is there any indication that this might be true? did it just sound cool?
