And God Created
Dec 24, 2011
We come now to perhaps the most controversial of all topics. Did life evolve on earth? If so, did it evolve with or without God as its first cause? If God created life on earth, as we believe, then what was the mechanism by which He did this?
In the past I imagined that God snapped His fingers, and suddenly things appeared out of nowhere. In my early life, I believed that God created things ex nihilo, "out of nothing." And then I came to understand Romans 11:36 and heard about the "God Particle," technically known as the Higgs Boson particle. A high-tech experiment was done a few months ago in which they were attempting to find definitive proof of the Higgs Boson particle. They found evidence, but it is still elusive to them.
To me, the God Particle is the basic unit of matter out of which God created the universe. It is the zero point where spirit meets matter. Whether this is the Higgs Boson particle or if we must look to a yet smaller particle is not yet known.
The point is that if you break down matter far enough, you come to God. God is NOT the sum total of the created universe, of course. God is far more than that. But whatever we do see in the universe, I believe, came "from" or "out of" God as Paul says, even if it all just part of God's little finger.
Moving on from there, we next can ask how God created. Is it possible for science to get some idea of the creative mechanism without resorting to "natural evolution" apart from God? David Wilcock makes some interesting observations in regard to the suppression of any evidence back in the 1800's that contradicted the Darwinian model of evolution:
"In his noteworthy book, Sparks of Life, Harvard professor James Strick revealed that there was an extensive conspiracy in the 1800s to suppress any scientific discoveries of microbes that appeared spontaneously, from nonliving material, rather than through allegedly 'random Darwinian mutation'. Dr. Strick clarified his position at a 2003 conference held by the Wilhelm Reich institute, and it was written up and published online by Jack Flannel." [The Source Field Investigations, p. 189]
Remember the ignorant people from past centuries who believed in spontaneous generation? Garbage suddenly produced flies, and bananas spontaneously produced tiny fruit flies, they thought, not knowing that the fruit fly eggs had just hatched from the banana peelings.
Well, it appears that we have to revisit this old ignorant idea. In 1837 Andrew Crosse was excited about this new thing called electricity. He wanted to grow rock crystals using chemicals and electricity. So he put some silicate of potash into hydrochloric acid, along with a chunk of iron oxide rock, and then zapped it with a low electrical current.
After two weeks, he observed some specks growing. After another two weeks, he found something even more astounding. In his report to the London Electrical Society in 1837, he wrote (quoted by Wilcox):
"On the 26th day of the experiment, the objects assumed the form of perfect insects, standing erect on the bristles which they were growing. Although I regarded this as most unusual, I attached no singular significance to it until two days later, the 28th day of the experiment, when the magnifying lens showed that these things were moving their legs. I must say now that I was quite astonished. After a few more days, they detached themselves from the stone and moved about through the caustic acid solution. In the course of a few weeks, more than a hundred of them made their appearance on the oxide of iron." [pp. 190, 191]
"... Under a microscope I [Crosse] examined them, and found that the smaller ones had six legs, the larger ones had eight. Others who have examined them pronounced them to be of the genus acari, but some say they are an entirely new species."
Knowing that he would be attacked by his colleagues, Crosse repeated the experiment after first sterilizing all the ingredients in a closed container. He got the same results.
"Other scientists repeated Crosse's experiment and got the same results, but according to the 1959 article by Frank Edwards that we pulled the above quotes from, they were too afraid to speak out about it. This finally changed when the legendary Michael Faraday reported to the Royal Institution that he, too, had gotten these small creatures to grow under the same conditions. He was not sure whether they were actually created spontaneously in the sterile solutions, or brought back to life by the electricity--but either result is a total challenge to mainstream science and biology as we now know it." [p. 190]
Wilhelm Reich, mentioned in an earlier blog, researched orgone energy, which, he concluded, filled all space in the universe but yet did not possess any mass. Yet it has a pulsating energy that can be measured. Reich found that by accumulating orgone energy through his "orgone accumulator," wounds and burns would heal much faster. Likewise, seeds grew plants that were much larger and healthier.
"Reich also found evidence of spontaneous generation in sterile environments. He saw what he felt to be bluish points of light under the microscope, which appeared before the life-forms themselves were created--and he called these bursts of light 'bions.' This theory was widely ridiculed.... Nonetheless, Professor Ignacio Pacheco successfully replicated Reich's results in 2000--and the photographs of what grew in his test tube are quite stunning. Pacheco heated ordinary sand from a nonpolluted beach to white-hot levels--namely 1400 C. . . The sand was then cooled off in a sterile environment. . .
"Amazingly, a variety of different structures appeared in the water that looked like complex living organisms--capable of growth and division. They were actively moving around in the solution, and Pacheco videotaped the results. Although Pacheco has not yet identified whether these structures have DNA in them, he feels 'these bions can be considered living structures in almost every sense.' Some of them look like simple microorganisms, but others were much more complex.
. . . My favorite photograph, as you can see on the next page, is of what looks like a critter with an obvious head, and roughly spherical body that is covered with spikes for self-defense. Pacheco believes these are 'transitional forms from the inorganic stage of organization to the organic and living condition of evolution.' Interestingly, if he did not sterilize the beach sand first, none of these little things would grow. It seems that the purity of the molecules was a very important element that allowed life to form. When we look at these little guys, the obvious question is this: Where did their DNA come from?" [pp. 191, 192]
Yes, where did their DNA come from? The logical conclusion is that the spiritual DNA from an "energetic duplicate" caused the physical creature to form and presumably to program its physical DNA as well. Which came first? Obviously, God came first, and from the spiritual realm came the Word: "Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures" (Gen. 1:20). And it was so.
