Cosmic Religion

Every religion from the beginning of recorded history has attempted to connect human beings with the gods.

  • According to ancient Sumerian religion the god Enki or Enlil create human beings out of clay and [their own] blood.
  • In the Egyptian religion the god Khnum creates human children from clay before placing them into their mother’s womb.
  • In Genesis 2:7 of the Hebrew and Christian Bible, God formed man from the dust and “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
  • In Ancient Greek religion human beings are born from the soot left over from the remains of the immortal Titans that Zeus had destroyed with lightening.

Every religious mythology has had some reference of how we human beings are the offspring of God or the gods.

The Old and New Testament of the Bible are replete with references of how we are the Children of God. One of the most interesting and mysterious Bible passages is a quote from Yeshua where he is himself quoting Psalm 82:6 when he answers the Judeans with, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’?”

Christianity bares the brunt of this in modern America, being that it was the most prevalent faith since the founding of the country until the 1950s. But is Christianity, along with numerous other historical religions, deficient? Does religion really detract from enjoyment of life? Does religion seek to control us as has often been claimed by Materialists and/or Atheist?

One thing that modern Materialism has left many people with is a longing for something greater than themselves. A greater connection to a higher purpose. Some have attempted to fulfill this deep hunger with hedonism, drugs, political causes, social movements, and extremism in multitudinous forms. And for all the awesomeness of modern technological society, Facebook and Twitter just don’t cut it!

Now being a natural psychic and mystic, I have never had trouble connecting to the Other Side or the Divine. I may not have had the verbal acumen, the contextual insight or necessary discipline to maximize that connection, but it has been with me from the time I was a small child. And in many ways, I believe this extrasensory perception, this ‘gift’ as some put it, saved me from the existential crisis suffered by many of my friends and family throughout life.

I could see Divinity’s hand everywhere I looked from the smallest blade of grass, to the vast expanse of interstellar space and the Milky Way’s spiral arm stretching across the night sky.

From our brain with it’s over 100 trillion neuronal connections, to a baby’s growth in it’s mother’s womb, to the incredible ability of our body to repair itself from crippling damage with the right resources. There is an old mystical adage that I’m sure you’ve heard before: As Above, So Below. As Below, So Above. We find this reflected no where more than in the inner cosmos of the human body. We truly are remarkable beings.

As we look further and further into space, we find more earth-like planets as well as a likelihood of finding extraterrestrial life in our solar system; on Mars or the moons of Jupiter or Saturn. Indeed, from everything we can observe, the universe is most likely, teeming with life. Just in the last year Astronomers have found a potentially habitable planet around Proxima Centauri and 7 earth-like planets around a star called TRAPPIST-1. And at least 3 of those planets are in the habitable zone!

As Physicists have looked further into the mysteries of sub-atomic particles, they are completely baffled by the way the laws of the universe are set up, because there is no reason the laws should be set up this way. Why didn’t these laws develop some other way if there is no Creator and supposedly no purpose behind them? It is as if they were set up only to give rise to consciousness!

Think about that for a second. Let it sink in.

The elements of our bodies and planet are made of the remnants of ancient exploded stars. We are the children of the stars. We are, as Carl Sagan said, “made of star stuff.”

Are we moving toward a Cosmic religion of the future as our understanding of the universe increases? One that takes into account the vast mysteries of space and time, human beings, creation and our place in it? I believe the answer is yes!

“A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge. ~ Carl Sagan

  1. Our DNA is beyond mans ability it is contains books written with just four letters on a ladder of a double helix and in it are our ancestors All this is beyond the ability of humanity and the ability of every religion. No one understands who God is or his plan but 99% of all life is extinct and we may be next.
