In the stories and traditions of religion it explains how god created evil yet if you don't take these specified foundations of religion seriously or literally I wonder why you are even religious at all.
Since the foundation of religion is stories or myth that means language is the insight into god yet obviously somehow you want me to go beyond language which you know I can't do.
It's stories and traditions that have helped to maintain a level of control over man. If he fears a God or fears doing evil because God can see all he does, then some will actually not do evil. Religions have been the fall of man not the raising of man. It's what we all still fight about today... and No, I'm not religious. That doesn't mean that I think doing evil is OK either. Religion is defined by man. Nature and creation by God, (again, perception of God).
Even without a god as a atheistic determinist I could say evolution or the big bang created man where destruction became a ingrained integral part of his nature.
There's another label created by man, "atheistic determinist". You just are. The label may describe a belief or a dogmatic way of thought, but you just are and the greatest of all man and scientist have been unable to explain this one.
The assertion of big bang theory is a guess so you could say that. However, whether it happened or not, what difference does it make in your tomorrow?... or mine.
So even with that I would say that destruction is not somthing beyond man that he comes to embrace by choice but instead is somthing born with him biologically.
If you believe this statement to be true, then you are absolutely 100% correct. Likewise if you believe it untrue you are absolutely 100% correct.
I have come to the understanding that destruction and evil is present in every man just as the still light of God and love is also present. We have a choice of which to embrace and that choice is based on how we perceive the world, our lives and this notion of God. Much of this has to do with what we see and how we respond to what we see. If we look deep enough past the sight of our eyes into the very depths of who and what we are, we may discover a light in man that goes unrecognized otherwise.
There's a thing called balance and no matter what, there is going to be balance in creation whether we like it or not. We as spiritual ether are balanced by the body of men. Do we recognize ourselves as all man or do we look deeper into the who and what we are? Man identifying himself as body will naturally lean towards the evil and selfish ways of the body. When man recognizes himself as spiritual, then the desires of the flesh are less present if at all.
One thing leads to another... These are my thoughts and not directed towards anyone in particular. Just thoughts based on the current discussion.
