Two views. Which is yours?

Man is no different than a pile of trash. In the end, useless, wasted away. Death is ultimately trash. No further purpose. Or.

That which is put in the ground like a bulb or potato, brings forth another life. One view is atheistic evolution, with man being no more relevant than a maggot. The other is a life of purpose with intention, useful as the crown of creation.

Can you defend your view with sanity?

    Cogito, ergo sum or, “I think, therefore I am.” This is the concept that separates man from other living things, and is the instinctual essence by which Nature, the Creator, etc. provided as a tool toward our continued existence. Yet we are just another life form in the vastness of the universe. The sudden assemblage of what Sagan termed as star stuff floating around since the Big Band, and meeting up here, now, and at this place in the universe.
    On the other hand… as humans being self-aware, we need to have faith and hope that there is in fact some sort of meaning to it all precisely because we value beauty in all aspects of our being. Spirituality is an assignment of beauty.

    Just my grandiose take. There is no right or wrong.

    Materialists argue all the time that there’s no evolutionary necessity for believing in concepts like God or an immortal soul. That to me is always one of the strongest arguments in favor of it. Disbelief has to be cultivated by education; belief is instinctual—but at the same time belief supposedly serves no purpose. It follows that these beliefs stem from the time of Creation: where we retain the instinct as part of our nature since it comes with all other factors of our being.

  4. Good stuff, Colorstorm. Jesus talks to us about the mustard seed, in part reminding us about how we need to think about the big picture, to contemplate the unseen world hidden in that tiny seed. If we take those bulbs in your pic at face value with no awareness of what lives inside of them, we’re liable to just toss them in the trash, never realizing their real life hasn’t even begun yet and they are actually flowers.

      Without purpose we are but trash. With purpose there is planning. With planning there is intelligence. With intelligence their is obviously a Maker of the brain.

      How hard can it be? For God’s sake, as we note, even a seed screams new life, a temporary inconvenience as it were……

      Or are people brain dead?

    Enjoyed this CS, short, sweet but very effective in getting your point across. Shattered glass to some is considered trash too, but when the pieces are picked up, lovingly cleaned off and rearranged the end result is something beautiful. Same pieces of glass, different results when a Creator is involved.
