Jim I can agree with you on some of the points you mention here. But I also base my belief on history and as the old saying goes those who forget history are doomed to repeat it! But more importantly in this context we speak of historical evidence that exists and is being added to all the time! So in a sense our perspective of the facts and truth is evolving as we move forward, but not because we control that fact, but rather that we have been given the opportunity to find eternal life by seeking God and all the truth that is God! Without God there is no truth, light or eternal life! Without God there is total separation from that all knowing truth and eternal life! I agree that we face an apocalyptic juncture not far ahead, but there are opposing forces in this dilemma that will be the reason for this event to occur in the first place. I for one don’t see this plane of existence as permanent or eternal, as we know from Einstein and others all matter has a half-life or finality build in. I also agree that the matter of our existence is growing critical and the opposing forces are becoming frenetic which is increasing the misinformation and diversionary factors exponentially. As you know well, that in this world there are no absolutes and humans are incapable of their own volition of identifying and then securing absolutism by all available means, as we are in a constant state of imperfection, locked into it if you will, and that absolutism can only be achieved by a power outside of our orbit, and even I dare say, beyond our comprehension. To think otherwise is foolhardy and even wreak-less as that would be like the toy telling the toy maker it knows more than its creator! Arrogance or rebelliousness can only yield disaster in this kind of affair, and again I reflect on Einstein’s theories of relativity and the time space continuum which has been expanded on since his time here on earth to include Dark matter and Dark energy theories that already with mathematical certainty have disclosed to our modern upstanding that there is matter and energy of the Dark Order or unseen dimension, outside of materialism, that far exceeds all matter and energy in the entire universe of this plane of existence! And we are limited by this reality we live in to only have the capability to decipher the things of this world not any other! I want to add that something very profound about this concept was said back thousands of years ago by none other than Jesus Christ. He stated to the Apostles, “Verily I say to you that there is more in the unseen world than these is in the seen.” This tells me that man’s collective consciousness and knowledge is now only catching up with something said thousands of years ago! I conclude from that, that He Jesus was who He claimed to be and was more than a messenger of God, that He was God and came to earth in the flesh to make an everlasting covenant for mankind, to provide the true path to everlasting and perfect Life! Jesus Christ was the only figure in all of history that can lay claim to what he spoke of and promised to do for all humans who will seek His truth and Salvation. No other historical figure had been prophesied and lived out those prophecies like Jesus the Christ actually did! I will conclude that I see our modern time being filled with diversion and confusion like no other before, and this will continue to lead to disaster for individuals and most probably the human race! You mention evolution but that is not going to achieve neither perfection nor everlastingness, as what will we evolve to if using this material world as the building blocks? Remember there is no capacity for any humans to achieve absolutism by their own merit or limited capability! Even realizing more fully our spiritual connection to all of existence will not be in and of itself enough to transcend all imperfection, which would be an absolute!
