How did the world come to be?
Where did humans come from? Why
are we here? What difference does it
make how these questions get
Every religion and culture has a
story about how the world was
formed and how and why humans
came to be. These stories help to
give meaning, purpose and direction
for humans to be in relationship with
each other and the earth they live
on. Many if not all of the stories
posit the existence of forces beyond
the earth and beyond humans that
shaped the world we live in. The
forces are called by different names
for God or Great Spirit or sometimes
seen as beings from other planets or
star systems. While there are
themes that run through all of the
stories, and sometimes marked
similarities, there are also subtle
differences that dramatically impact
how humans relate to the world
around them.
The creation myths of indigenous
cultures tend to place man in a
sacred relationship to both other
creatures and the earth itself. These
stories guide man to live in harmony
with the natural environment and to
see himself as part of a larger living
whole where everything is related.
Other stories, like the opening
chapters of Genesis, posit a
different relationship of human to
planet, where man is given
“dominion” over the animals and
seen in the image of God. Why is
this difference important? What are
the long-term consequences of
different points of view regarding our
place in the universe?
If we look at indigenous earth-
centered cultures through time, we
see that–if not interrupted by
European conquest or Colonization
—they remain immersed in the
cycles of the earth, sustaining a
lifestyle dependent on the seasons
and production of the earth around
them. Sometimes cultures—like
those in Papua New Guinea or the
Amazon Basin or the Kalahari—can
go for thousands of years with very
little change, maintaining their
existence as a part of nature.
But what happens when the
relationship of humans to the earth
and her creatures is seen as
dominion, where man is different
from the other creatures, somehow
above them and in charge of them?
A different pattern of evolution
appears to emerge. Jared Diamond
in his book Guns Germs and Steel
names animal husbandry and the
storing of grain for later use as the
seminal cultural change that created
the capacity for Europeans to
conquer the world. Perceiving
oneself as separate from one’s
surroundings, with the ability to
mold, shape, change and have
dominion over them, allows a
developmental sequence that has
created our modern world.
This separation, with its
accompanying power to observe as
if from the outside, was essential to
the development of the scientific
mindset that has allowed us to learn
about not only our own world but the
larger cosmos in which it is
embedded. The scientists
themselves furthered the
separation, especially in the
scientific revolution of the 16th
century, by beginning to see the
universe in mathematical terms and
to imagine its workings as
mechanical or dead.
Relating to the earth as a dead
object, a vast repository of
resources to be used by man for his
own purposes has, on the one hand,
vastly accelerated our knowledge of
the universe and produced lifestyles
unimaginable to earth-centric
cultures. On the other hand, it has
also created the situation we are in
now where we are behaving much
like a cancer that is outgrowing its
host body. Our way of life and
attitudes towards the earth are
threatening to kill the very thing that
sustains our life.
It is curious, and perhaps ironic, that
the same forces which have
culminated in the skills of the
world’s most revered scientists are
now guiding us, through them, back
into a relationship with the earth
and the cosmos more akin to
indigenous creation stories. We are
beginning to understand that the
earth is a living being and that we
are a part of, not separate from her
As we simultaneously probe the
cosmos through ever-larger
telescopes and the inner workings of
subatomic material through
immense accelerators, we begin to
discover that our bodies are made
up of stardust and that many of the
ancient creation stories tell the true
story, in metaphoric terms, of the
progression of our own creation.
Even the creation story in Genesis
aptly, though cryptically, names the
evolution of the universe and the
creatures within in. While there are
those who hotly debate the time
frame of whether a “day” is the 24-
hour version that we experience as
creatures of earth or a “cosmic day”
which describes an evolutionary
epoch spanning millions or billions
of years, the actual sequence is the
same. And if we pause for a moment
and behold the exquisitely fine-
tuned time sequences and
temperatures and pressures and
conditions that make life possible, it
becomes difficult not to experience
the forces that brought us into being
as something sacred and awe-
inspiring, whether or not we call
them God.
What difference would it make if
science brought us back into a
resonance with the ancient stories of
a living universe where all beings
are sacred, including the earth? How
would that change us or impact the
challenges of our time? What
happens when we imagine our
bodies to be primeval stars in a new
form or see the earth as alive and
sacred or recognize that we are the
latest result of a process 13.7 billion
years old?
We are coming to a time when the
way we have been living on the
earth cannot continue. Many of us
know or sense the impending crisis
brought on by the cascading
collapse of the systems–food, water,
energy and climate—that sustain us.
Our newly-gained understanding of
the evolution of the earth tells us
that the earth has hit several such
impossible predicaments throughout
its history resulting in quantum
leaps of innovations like
photosynthesis and oxygen eating
organisms. The earth itself—or
whatever forces guide evolution—
created these changes long before
humans came into being. These
same forces produced humans and
human consciousness. If we are at
the wall of change now, how is our
presence part of what happens next?
Are we to become extinct like so
many other species that were
unable to adapt to changing
conditions? Or is it possible that the
evolutionary impulse that developed
beings that could perceive the
development itself has us in some
way in a position to be co-creators
of our own next creation story?


Have you ever wondered how u where created!!!!!
But i hav n that made me to think abt the perfect master piece of god ....US...
What r the things that make us human!!
What makes us the superiour ones in this planet....
Or are we!!!!! Are we alone?????
All of this remained unanswered Question of all time but we still continue this tradition
But lets make a CHANGE discover what happens around u notice even the slighest changes in nature.
Dont just see OBSERVE
And b proud to say u know smthing abt the world ur living in
Follow a journey with The Science of Deduction
N Make A Difference
