Creation Theories

Published by Stacey T Pollock
Creation is one topic that has been well studied for many centuries. Not just one viewpoint on creation has been devised but so many that it would take pages to outline their individual approaches. Looking back into history in the times where gods were formed in the stars, to present day theories of god creating life through spiritual ideology and also to extend to a more physical approach of life being created materially through an evolutionary approach, from cells to formation of all life on earth from one core form. Each theory has its own viewpoint and approach that looks at life to suit its own goals and objectives.

Creation theories
Creation is one topic that has been well studied for many centuries. Not just one viewpoint oncreation has been devised but so many that it would take pages to outline their individualapproaches. Looking back into history in the times where gods were formed in the stars, to present day theories of god creating life through spiritual ideology and also to extend to amore physical approach of life being created materially through an evolutionary approach,from cells to formation of all life on earth from one core form. Each theory has its ownviewpoint and approach that looks at life to suit its own goals and objectives.When we look at creation there is one thing that is undeniable and that is that we really do nothave it wrapped up around our little finger, on how to pinpoint an exact time and place whencreation was formed. We follow belief structures with full understanding that we are but thecreation and not the all knowing of why it exists.Each theory has its own logical approach, looking at creation from its own creative andsubjective methodology, with the essence of each theory focusing on the human body andhow the earth is formed. Some theories also extend to the mind and seek truth in romanticand poetic stories that relate to love, light and just generally being happy and content with theoverall position that we are all placed within. Except for a lot of scientific approaches eachorganized creation theory stems mostly from a story form approach, each showing a line of creation that is formed by an ideal of the human mind.I suppose the real question to ask when viewing all the individual approaches of creation:what was the original intention of this viewpoint? Whether that be to acknowledge that thereis an omnipresent being that created us from a place far more divine than anything that wecould even comprehend, or that we are merely formed but of matter that changes as the yearsgo by. Each method of viewing creation definitely has its own beauty and individual creativeapproach, none without a fault in trying to find the reason for existence.All theories stand on their own podium of strong opinion and purpose, not one with limit toreach a desire to understand and justify its approach. The only downfall that could be noted iswhen each theory comes into contact with one another. It is then that the podiums start tocrumble. Instead of finding undeniable links between each approach, we choose to debateeach limited ideal until the end of time, even after we find that such passion can lead tofighting and viewing creation from the opposite viewpoint to which we seek. How can suchthings be overcome? Will we ever find an agreeable approach that does not have to hinge onan individuals creative potential.
 
One thing that is seen when viewing many of the approaches of finding reason in creation isthat our focus is as time goes by limiting itself to ideals of human social acceptance. Manythings are forced to the wayside if they do not fit into a group acceptance instead of beingseen subjectively and in its own beauty and form. Rules and guidelines are setup so stringentthat the makers also feel themselves forced into a cage of redemption, leading to their ownindividual undoing. They wish to hold to their beliefs so strong without questioning their original purpose, but only to enforce without first contemplation and solution. Their ideal becomes then their purpose and when they are under attack they seize up and protectthemselves with shields of rigid viewpoint to push away new concepts and approaches.Sometimes also these new concepts and approaches have also their own basis of crumbling podiums. They too are looking for ways to build themselves up to achieve understanding, anda strong undeniable truth, that they hope will be still standing at the end of the day after all thework that has have done to try and convince others of their purpose.What if creation itself was not in the individuals desire to create purpose for themselves? Weall seek answers that we hope is the only truth standing from viewing each individualstandpoint. The only other thing that we can really know to be truth is also that we willinevitably die one day out of the body to which we are formed. These two truths are all thatwe have to hold us up. They are our right and left foot, the only thing that we can be certainof. We all seek answers at some point in our life, but what are we really asking for?One thing is for sure, individually we are not really seeking an answer for why creation isformed, but really an answer to what is our purpose as humans. We want to know what weare to be doing and what we are to be achieving. Every person has the desire within them towant to know why they should even exist in the first place, but not to only acknowledge the beauty of the creation itself but to know why we endure all that we experience. What if creation had no real foundational purpose, would we then want to know the truth?The foundational elements of creation really would not in all essence have the same goals asthe creation itself. These elements have a place outside the human physical world. They arenot the creation but the creator. When people base ideas on creation they know that thefoundation elements are this ‘creator’ and draw in on human ideals in order to form their formational model. It makes perfect sense to see creation this way. Seeing as we as humansonly know so far the basis of this world alone and what we see with our eyes around us. Theonly thing that could be seen as lacking is that we cannot see beyond such limited concepts.We base all on our own self focus and think that we are but the center of all, but is this so?If we were to draw on all creation theory and look at creation for its foundation rather than its purpose how would it then be viewed? It would for sure have a basis far outside this singular limited world that we now know and isolate ourselves within. Would creation not be far reaching beyond even human reasoning and incorporate all possibility?One thing is for sure, the elements that created us, are not us, but the foundationalembodiments to which we are made from. It would be very logical to see creation in such away. Such a viewpoint would never change in its approach, because the ‘created’ is always a product from the ‘creator’. This would have to be a simple foundation fact. If this were to beso then how would we ascertain what this creator is and how creation is formed?
