I'm interested in hearing everyones opinion on how we came to be on this planet, and perhaps debate about it. Feel free to answer anyone!:)

We came to be through evolution. And the planet was created mostly through the ignition of the sun, and to some part through a distant supernova.

Renee, that takes years of study. There are plenty of books on the subject.

While some believe we were created by a God [various faiths give various answers] scientifically we evolved. Personally I follow the scientific answer and feel the deities watched over us, over time they spoke to us. I've never really bought into a bearded man pointing and POOF there's the earth POOF there's the moon POOF there's the plants...

Right on, Nekoshema! God didn't make Man. Man made God!

Brysing,don't transform your "beliefs" as an absolute fact :P

Just because you don't believe something it doesn't mean is not true.

I don't want to say that I believe a god create us,but there are still people who do and is fine to be alright with what you believe then to try to said that what you believe is true.

But man did make god! I have this theory that all ancient gods and even god himself are ancient thoughtforms.

If you don't know what a thoughtform is, it is basically creating an idea and then giving energy to that idea.

Slyspider, what I have stated is a fact! Gods are beliefs, not facts!

I have to say I do agree with Brysing to a certain extent. If you want to believe in a spiritual universe that is all well and good, but different civilisations have interpreted this in different ways, and thus have different Gods.

Man made God in an image which was 1. meaningful to him (sorry for the sexist language, but such is English) 2. Easily identified with.

For example the dying sun god. People used to believe the sun died each day and rose again each morning, they translated this into a myth and composed a deity. From their perspective this is what was happening. Now I am not saying that people who believe in Gods are fooling themselves, far from it! I am simply pointing out Ra did not exist until the Egyptians named him such, in a spiritual specific god-sense.

(That makes sense in my mind, but is difficult to communicate).

What I dislike is when people discard evolution simply because it 'is only a theory'. Well, yes. But it is a theory backed by factual evidence, enough for me to certainly conclude it is true. And the theory of a creation myth is much less supported and therefore less likely to be true.

An interesting fact about evolution, back when we had fish ancestors, we had gills. Certain scientists theorise that these gills slowly evolved and became the three ear bones.....just throwing that in there to share what my geeky self thinks is interesting!

Just remember, the theory of evolution is just a theory.
