In the beginning man created God…..
The Bible begins with the declaration “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” It goes on to describe God creating humans. For many Christians, this ancient text is accepted as fact. However, one cannot prove God created the universe in 7 days. Here’s an alternative view of creation. Isn’t it possible that this is the way it could have occurred?
1 In the beginning there was the matter which later formed heavens and the earth.
2 Over time, humankind evolved into modern day humans.
3 And humankind said, there is so much we do not understand. What is our origin? What is our purpose? What happens to us when we die? Let us make gods in the image of the heavens. And humankind created gods out of the sun, moon, and stars and worshiped them. That was the morning and evening of the first season.
4 Then humankind said, let us make gods in the image of woman, for she is the mother of all things and the creator of all that is living. And humankind created female gods and worshiped her. That was the morning and evening of the second season.
5 Then humankind said, let us make images of our gods that we can see and touch. And humankind created images of their gods and worshiped them. That was the morning and evening of the third season.
6 Then man said, men a physically stronger than woman so let us make male gods and male images of our gods. And man created male gods and images of their gods and worshiped them. That was the morning and evening of the fourth season.
7 Then man said, let us make a single male deity with whom we can personally relate and use him to justify our wars, genocides, and intolerances for other cultures. And man created a male deity with whom they could personally relate and used him to justify their wars, genocides, and intolerances for other cultures. That was the morning and evening of the fifth season.
8 Then man said, let us make newer versions of our gods to more fit our cultural advances and modern philosophical thought. And man updated their gods to fit their cultural advances and modern philosophical thought. That was the evening and morning of the sixth season.
9 Then humankind said, the gods we have created are dividing and destroying us. We are using our gods to wage wars, commit acts of terrorism, foster intolerance for others and to lead us down the path of destruction. Let us no longer believe in our gods. And humankind discarded their gods and focused on living lives of compassion and tolerance. And humankind rested and had peace. That was the evening and morning of the seventh season.
