MUSINGS 9 JUNE 2019

Myths are born from humans using relatively little information and weaving it into a story which keeps fear at bay, or at least to manageable proportions – to make us feel as if we have a significant impact on the outcome of our existence.

Scientists explain that primitive religions began thus, with sacrifices and the creation of gods who – though powerful to control the elements – could be influenced or mollified through sacrifices and worship. These beliefs were bolstered by the confluence of desires and occurrences which, from the perspective of the scientist, were manipulated by the power-hungry to represent cause and effect.

And yet atheist scientists do not see that – with relatively little information on a cosmic scale – they have created but another story of creation which they were content to call a theory for a while, but now insist to be the only reality … even though it contradicts their own rubric of empiricism.

After about a quarter century of denial while we warmed ourselves around the fire of the First Industrial Revolution, we begin to realize that we a ecological and environmental primitives compared to Neanderthal – the species we eclipsed and probably murdered – and that the blaze of technology burns out of control, fed by the wrong fuel – greed and hydrocarbons.
