would you agree that life evolves from ignorance to intelligence? please point out to me a life form that goes from intelligence to ignorance. the universe we live in has sculpted us into existence. one factor that is stopping this theory is the fact that we have not found other intelligent life in the universe... YET. which would signify that evolution happens the same way on other planets/solar systems/galaxies. i am not sure of the reasoning as to why our species picked to stay on land, but i am glad they did, it seems that it has propelled us into deeper thoughts/thinking than those counterparts in the ocean. not saying that life in the ocean cant one day do the same things we do eventually, but we seem to have got there faster. and by "got there faster" i mean we got to "intelligence" faster. so, in my eyes, intelligence is more than likely inevitable in this universe. in other words it is not a random fluke if it happens more than once. other animals seem intelligent on this planet, just not as intelligent as humans.why should it stop with our planet?
another thing, why did there have to be so many species? why werent the first single cell organisms the last species of anything on this planet? why did it multiply into thousands of different species on our planet? if single cell organisms thrived, then what was the point of evolving any further at all? if mutation or other biological factors are your argument then you have only proven my point and beliefs. the very fact that this universe has molded us into what we are today... is a hint of "design". why are we as smart as we are now? why are we not still trying to hide from predators?
now look down into the quantum realm. you have particles that come into existence simply by observing them or measuring them (double slit experiment). these particles also change their properties and/or paths depending on WHEN AND WHERE they are observed or measured (Delayed Choice Quantum Eraser). now i am no scientist, but it sure seems like the particle itself, or whatever function that particle resides in, knows we are observing it. like i said, i am agnostic and i do believe in a creator. i do not need or want to worship this creator. i do not want to sacrifice any animals in celebration of this creator lol.
i would like to point out that one of dr tysons biggest arguements is against those who believe in a creator. he is just the other side of the "scale" because you have people that say "oh its all just randomness" and get tired and stop learning about our environment/universe. the same can be said about those who believe to strongly in a "god", they see something they cant explain and say "oh god is wonderful". one can still go on in both scenarios and make scientific discoveries. for either side to sit back and try to mke the other side look ignorant, is ignorant itself. how about you spill your beans instead of spilling other peoples beans. you can quote a charming phrase, but that does not mean it should be the only path to intelligence.
