How was the man created?
Hot debates around different theoriesthe origin of man does not subside to this day: Darwinists argue that man has descended from a monkey; religious people believe that all things, including man, were created by God; but there is an opinion that people have arisen due to the activity of extraterrestrial intelligence. Who of them is right? Everyone chooses the theory that is closest to him. Let's take a closer look at theories of creating people.
Creationism is the concept that allforms of life, including people, were created by God or the Creator. The theory that man appeared due to divine power arose much earlier than the materialistic view that humans evolved from monkeys. In all ancient religions there are myths in which God or gods create people in various ways. In anthropogenical myths, people are usually created from natural materials: clay, water, wood, etc. For example, in ancient Egyptian mythology, the demigur god (that is, the creator) Khnum molds people on a potter's wheel, and then breathes life into them. The ancient Sumerians believed that Marduk and other gods killed the monster Tiamat and her husband Abzu, mixed the blood of the latter with clay and from this mixture the first man appeared.
Adam and Eve are the first people
In the Bible, the Torah, and the Koran, it is described how God the Fathercreated Adam's first man on the sixth day of creation. God created Adam in the image and likeness of his own. According to the second story in the Book of Genesis, Adam was fashioned "out of the dust of the earth", clay. Then God breathed life into him and placed Eden in the Garden of Eden, where all the plants and animals created by divine power appeared before Adam. After that, God put Adam to death, took one of his ribs and created the first woman, Eve. Eve became a wife to Adam. The first people lived happily in the Garden of Eden, until they were expelled from there for their fall.
Judaism and Islam also recognize the theory of divine creation, Darwin's evolutionary theory is severely criticized.
In addition to purely theological creationismthere is also a scientific one. The concept of "Reasonable Design" tries to substantiate scientifically the theory of divine creation. The followers of this concept believe that the perfection of the structure of the universe and living beings is explained by the design of the higher mind, that is, God. They seek to confirm the texts of the Bible with scientific evidence, and also refute the facts of Darwin's evolutionary theory.
Theory of external intervention
To date, there are manyalternative theories of creating living beings. The theory of external intervention answers the question of how man was created. In accordance with this theory, a person is none other than a direct descendant of aliens. This topic is often discussed in popular science literature and in fantasy films. For example, writers Stanislaw Lem and Robert Sheckley devoted their books to the topic of extraterrestrial intervention.
The theory of external intervention is gaining todaymore and more supporters. There is controversy about whether the ancient pyramids of Egypt and Mexico could be built by humans, or it is evidence of the presence of aliens on Earth.
There are several versions of how the aliens started the human race. Consider the options, how people could be created by aliens.
- Perhaps people are direct descendants of aliens who landed on Earth in ancient times and lost contact with their planet.
- A highly developed alien civilization has deduced by breeding or grown in vitro a population of intelligent beings.
- Humanoids interbred with higher primates, the first people appeared after generations.
- The aliens deduced the first people by the method of genetic engineering.
- Evolution of great apes was, but it occurred according to the plan of the alien mind.
