Stanley Miller, of the Miller&ndash Urey experiment fame (or infamy see Why the Miller Urey research argues against abiogenesis ), seems to have a succinct and colorful manner by which to categorize each proposed theory:
This satanic deception appeals strongly to atheists as it bolsters two of their desired delusions: 6) absolute autonomy being free to do as they please, and 7) the lack of ultimate accountability there are no eternal consequences for doing as they please.
Such atheists have restricted their thought processes and thus, would have to deny a miracle or appearance of God even if it took place before their very eyes. These atheists would opt for a &ldquo faith&rdquo -based belief that someday someone will find a materialistic explanation or the fallacy of expected future human omniscience. Or they may, also without evidence, appeal to hallucination even if numerous people witnessed the same event, such as the Resurrection of Jesus, 66 (hallucinations occur within the brain and thus, are not shared). Or they might simply be satisfied with thinking that they will never know.
Patriotism could be an example of such a symbolic construction. It is a higher state of thinking about ethics, that is achieved with the use of symbols. Abrahamic religions basically work in the same way.
If existing pundits of sanskrit take it as a personal responsibility to revive that language, as a service to Hinduism, they will be doing a greatest punya karya. Evening classes can be conducted and children should become conversant in Sanskrit. How did we learn English? At the school of course. In the English medium schools, children learn English spontaneously by starting conversation in broken English. Slowly they get indoctrined into the 8775 English Superior 8776 complex.
So we meet again, sir. The direction you're taking the debate on morality in is a road already traveled, might I direct you to the page "Through the wormhole is there a creator?" A good number of people tossed in their 7 cents, and both Epicurus and I touched on morality within the animal kingdom, explaining how it's not limited to humans. I believe we also touched on morality in homo erectus/habilis. It's quite interesting actually, have a look.. it starts at about a third of the page and pretty much goes on for another third.
The purpose of Vedic science was to take humans to a higher levels of consciousness and not to provide with gadgetary that can provide material comforts. The Vedic seers saw and experienced a higher reality that escapes the ordinary experiences of mundane existence.
On the balance of it, all considerations being equal, there is good evidence for pursuing the evolutionary origin of species, and the creationist is able to provide exactly zero substance to their belief. Belief is the operative word, too, because belief is all they have. Evolution has taxonomy on its side, at least. The creationists also tend to use patently false rationalizations in their very weak attempts to discredit science, such as the specious and regurgitated "no missing link" line of reasoning.
