Evolution and God.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


How can evolution and God coexist? For millions of years there was no life at all on earth, and if we use the 24 hour clock analogy for the existence of life on earth, only in the last few seconds did man come onto the scene. Based on these facts, why would a creator go through all these lengths to make sure evolution took its natural process, and by that I mean close to 5 billion years later, to finally have man on earth? I guess my question is, can science and God coexist, or is God just a 'God of the gaps' as Dawkins puts it? In other words, to fill in what few holes we have left in our understanding of life on earth and where we came from, we still use a conscious creator. Of course in my heart of hearts I'd like to believe in intelligent design…:)


From the Vedic perspective, the process of creation and evolution not only coexist, they are aspects of the same universal process of existence unfolding and awakening to its true nature. In this view, fundamental reality and human existence is universal consciousness, not merely atoms. Creation does not have to be from a personal creator, it is also understood as an impersonal process of creation. Evolution is also seen to be more than just a species’ genetic adaptation for self-perpetuation, it is also the inherent movement of life toward greater self-expression of its potential emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.

    Another way of describing it is this: Why does a creator create if not to explore?(whether that is a conscious choice or not). Evolution makes logical sense, if you consider it`s progression. Beginning with simple life forms in the ocean, to ones capable of crawling>walking on land and flying, and then a transition from subconscious instinct to more conscious thinking. An exploration of different and advancing ways of "being". I don`t think the exploration is finished either, it may be more subtle and unexpected than you might think. At least that was what flashed into my mind during a spiritual experience, I only started reading spiritual books after that experience. Haven`t got to Deepak`s works yet, just getting started. The point being though, that the real book is already there inside you, you just have to learn how to open it.
