Had some questions about evolution.
I know very, very little about this topic. Never took a class on it. (Why is for another thread.) That is probably why I still don't totally rule out the fact that a God could exist, but I've been doing some studying on this subject and I'm sorry in advance if some of these questions sound totally stupid. I litreally just a few minutes ago began looking at some youtube clips on it:
So we have all these different types of animals (humans included) and it took a few million years for all living creatures to evolve? Is this correct?
If that is correct, does that mean in...say....another million years we humans are going to look different and that animals may look different as well?
Does it ever stop? Meaning will we humans and animals ever settle into one form or are we going to forever be growing?
Are we humans going to get smarter? I am guessing yes because when we look back on our past, we probably see the way people lived as being cave manish compared to what we have today and if you study history, you clearly see as time goes by, things get better and better.
Final question: Do you think it's possible that a God of some sort is the one doing all this? Or is this just all happening on it's own? I don't mean the Christian God by the way. I think that's a man made concept, but could it be some type of higher power out there with some type of plan?
I know some believe that in a billon years, the world will blow up and maybe that is a good thing because if we keep growing and growing without someone to push the "stop" button, who knows what will happen.
It is an interesting idea: Some believe the world started with a big bang and maybe it will end with a big bang too. That right there does leave me open to the idea that a higher power or aliens or something out there is doing all this. It just seems too weird to be doing it to itself. Like maybe after this world blows up, another chapter for humankind will begin and ALL this right here will just erase.
....In fact, maybe that's already happened a few times. Maybe there was a whole other history of humankind before us and maybe this "God" is doing all this because he's trying to find a perfect society? Or it could just be happening on it's own. Like a giant clock that just goes around in circles over and over again.
Err....I am getting WAY too deep now. These are all pretty crazy thoughts. I'll shut up so the smart people can respond.
