In the beginning


Some say that given the vastness, the beyond infinity of the universe there must be other intelligence somewhere else besides earth. Then they add, if this is so statistically, why have we not detected such life? The answer, my friend, is that we have, and it is right here all about us. What is it that the founders of our great religions and our philosophers are talking about if not intelligence that is communicating with us from beyond here and now? Intelligence exists through out the universe in the relationships binding matter together and in the laws of physics. Jews, Christians and Muslims call that intelligence God, Hindus Ishta Devata, Buddhists call their divine beings devas. Who is to say elsewhere in the universe other intelligent life have not found the same underlying intelligence and are more interested in communicating with it than with us? We are a young life form on a young planet circling a young small star. Older civilizations may be more interested in seeking God than in seeking us. It is our vanity and our ‘science’ that holds us back from enlightenment and true knowledge.

“Asking what came before the Big Bang is meaningless, according to the no-boundary proposal, because there is no notion of time available to refer to,” Hawking said in a lecture at the Pontifical Academy in 2016, a year and a half before his death. “It would be like asking what lies south of the South Pole.” Sounds to me that Hawking is saying there was no beginning. I am not a physicist but in a paper by Turok, Job Feldbrugge of the Perimeter Institute, and Jean-Luc Lehners of the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics wrote: “We discovered that it just failed miserably,” Turok said. “It was just not possible quantum mechanically for a universe to start in the way they imagined.” The trio checked their math and queried their underlying assumptions before going public, but “unfortunately,” Turok said, “it just seemed to be inescapable that the Hartle-Hawking proposal was a disaster.” If our Perimeter Institute says this who am I to argue. I accept the Bible’s “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. [2] And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

I also accept that We did not evolve from other lower forms of life. We were created directly by God to represent Him on the earth and have dominion over every other creation in His name). And Proverbs 8:22-30: “The LORD created me as the beginning of his works, before his deeds of long ago. From eternity I was appointed, from the beginning, from before the world existed. When there were no deep oceans I was born, when there were no springs overflowing with water; before the mountains were set in place – before the hills – I was born, before he made the earth and its fields, or the beginning of the dust of the world. When he established the heavens, I was there; when he marked out the horizon over the face of the deep, when he established the clouds above, when the fountains of the deep grew strong, when he gave the sea his decree that the waters should not pass over his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth, then I was beside him as a master craftsman, and I was his delight day by day, rejoicing before him at all times, rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth, and delighting in its people.”

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
