Where did we come from?

I started several debates in TED and results are evolution can't be proven. SHORT OF CREATION and EVOLUTION is there another option?

I believe this is a fundamental question to be answered.

  • Oct 10 2012: Hi Brian,
    Thanks for the vid link. I don't have time just now to watch it completely but will try to get back to it.

    What is referred to about DMT creating hallucinatory phenomena is of no surprise to me. Psychedelic drugs do one thing that everyone experimenting with such drugs should be fully aware of. This thing hallucinagenic drugs do is push the soul / spirit element of our being out of the physical and life body. This is sort of a "simulated" death condition. Hallucinogenic drugs are just like climbing in through the window to get into a house. The "house" being the spiritual world. We get into it alright, but our experiences are so disoriented because we are not prepared for it. Our consciousness needs to be prepared through mental training and meditation.
    In ancient times, such people, in all cultures, had these experiences available to them. These people were called initiates. Initiates were "led" over the threshold by other initiates and into the spiritual world "fully conscious". They saw visions ... great visions ... They could sometimes see even everything that developed in the entire evolution of the planet earth.
    Chemicals are not the "experience" in themselves, chemicals are just a "catalyst" that pushes the soul and spirit out of the physical body and into the spiritual dimension.

    Such is it also with oxygen deprivation. Such is it with Jill Bolte Taylors stroke. Russian astronauts put on the G-force wheel have the same experience .. This is what the "god helmet" is also doing.

    Remember Brian, the brain is only like an antenna for your true being. Your true being is of a purely spiritual nature that is ... again .... totally "immaterial" You can damage the brain and point to it and say .. See, the brain is not working, that's why I can no long raise my arm ... but the truth is this, the brain is damaged and therefor my spirit cannot penetrate my nervous system to raise my arm
