            Creation or Evolution

How did we get here?

Is it by creation or by evolution?

If it is by creation, then was all things created from the beginning by God or Nature?

If it is by evolution, then has the evolution machinery stopped and why or is it still functioning?

Some people can ask has the creation machinery stopped.

If yes, then how come the current variations or new species discovered?

These two schools of thought, creationism, and evolutionism, are based on religion and science respectively.  Unfortunately, the father of evolution, Charles Darwin, was said to have received some religious teaching. That is he was not ignorant of the religious doctrine of creation before he put forward his theory.

In my unpublished work, in which I journeyed with an unborn child, I remember that it a mention was made about the biblical destruction of the world of which only Noah and his family were said to survived so it meant Noah’s ship contained all that God created in twos, even the now extinct species.

This is because it was not recorded that God created anything after the flood. The argument between creation and evolution will continue, although science has recorded that some species can change through gene mutation or other processes/factors. For instance some bacteria develop resistance to chemotherapeutic agents while some parasites avoid immune destruction by using antigenic variation mechanism through which the parasite is said to change their antigenic makeup or surface coat.

Both schools can agree that living things have innate/adaptive ability to fight for their survival in other for them to continue their existence, if the mechanism fails then the organism maybe at risk of extinction maybe because of diseases or other factors.

Homeostasis is one of such mechanism for humans. There are some birth defects/abnormalities which are recorded among humans and we do not know if we can attribute it to creation or to evolution, that occur as a result of mistakes in genes or other factors during the developmental stages as science teach.

 If evolution has stopped among human it maybe because we have device means of assisting the natural mechanism in their combat. This can be by application of drugs and other agents. However, let us imagine what would happen if there is a deadly epidemic and we cannot find a means of supporting our body defense mechanism. The sequelae, depending on the epidemiology of the disease, maybe a massive death and the fear of possible extinction of the human race except our natural defense finds a solution, of which we cannot tell the outcome of such solution.

For instance, it was said that before smallpox vaccine was discovered, most those that suffered smallpox and survived were somewhat disfigured.  It is also known that some agents in our environment like Veratrum californicum, a poison that cause cyclopia in animals, drugs like thalidomide which causes Amelia, and some micro-organism cause defects.

We have agents in our environment of which we have to confront at one point or the other; consequently there can be a changed environment. Therefore it can be said that God or some other forces, call it what you will, created all things and gave them ability to continue their existence even if it is by manipulating  their genes or life just evolved out of nothing and kept evolving as life tried to adjust to the environmental and biological challenges.

We may no longer doubt or question the possibilities of life originating from non-living matter because science has confirmed that prion, an infectious protein, which is less than a virus can cause diseases. And we know that proteins or nucleic acids are made up of elements which we find in our environment as non-living things and the bible rightly said that God created man from the dust which is a non-living thing.

Finally, we do not know how we came here or how we started because creation and evolution are theories and that is why they are in conflict. But we at least know that we are here.

 

 

She is everywhere

She is everywhere

Oh! I see her everywhere.

She is the only reason why I believe in mysteries although no mystery can explain how she appears everywhere.

I never saw her left because she has never walked out of my presence. She is always with me and she is her even as I pen down my humbly words for her to read.

I do not know how she does it but I see her everywhere.

Yes, she is everywhere. She is not an illusion and there is no omission of her presence in all that I see.

I cannot explain if it is a spell or a magic and I do not seek for an explanation of how she does it because my pains and sorrow are lost in her presence.

Even as I walk alone in the lonely street of love yet I am never alone.

She loves me just as I am.

She loves me because I choose to be me and no one else.

Money can’t buy her love that is why she loves me without looking for riches and glory even though men came with their riches to take her love away from me. I was empty but she made me whole with her true love.

She is everywhere.

Her presence gives me pleasure, a pleasure which I treasure and it can be measured.

She stole my heart, my soul, my mind, my spirit, and my body and I have nothing left yet I am whole because she carefully and wonderfully possessed all my being as if she is my maker.  Can she be my maker?

She took all that I have and I wish I have more to give to her.

Many kings pray for a queen like her yet I am not a king but I know she is a queen that has made me understand the happiness of kings that have no sorrow attached to their crown.

She raptures me to her world and her world is where I belong.

She is the only creature, the only thing I see, feel, and think.

Yes I am gladly obsessed and possessed by her and that is why she is everywhere.

Even though she is here with me as I pen down my words for her yet I know she is out there somewhere waiting for us to see and meet each other, maybe, for the first time and live in our world of love, a world which we shall create like no other world.

I shall wait for you because I know someday we shall meet to part no more.
