I’ve been thinking recently of Nature, of how it is so powerful. Sometimes I do believe Nature is more than just what we think it is, or what it looks like to us. It’s not just a sky, and an earth. It’s not just some seas with fish, lands with animals, and soil with micro-organisms. It’s not just physics and chemistry. It’s not just an evolutionary ladder where the strong survives while the weak collapses. It’s much more.
To me, Nature is God. While I do ‘believe’ in God as One and Only, I still think nature as a whole is God himself. Since I – nor others – could scientifically prove or deny the existence of God, what’s left for us is only mere belief. Though I don’t even recognize myself as religious or devout, I get tremendously astonished when I study, for instance, the anatomy of the Human body, not to mention that of just an eye. I find myself whispering words of gratitude to Whom have created such unbelieveably detailed and organized structures.
Now if you think about it in a scientific and logical way, Nature has made all the things it has or had in it. For instance, let’s talk about Evolution. This everlasting phenomenon is the tool by which all organisms, including us Humans, have emerged to what they are/were. The first form of life is Amoeba, which is a unicellular organism, have passed through thousands processes of natural selection till it reached the shape of Human. Evolution choose what’s suitable for the organism in its environment and augments this property, while what’s unsuitable or unneeded is eliminated. It’s as simple as that. In the past, for example, humans had moving ears. They could easily move it as a mammal does. That was because they dwelt in wild areas where danger is present, so they had to move their ears to the direction of sound to hear it better. Now being more civilized, humans do not need this property, so evolution eliminated it.
In the future, the human being is predicted to have a much smaller body, and a bigger brain, for the need of muscular power is getting less everyday, because mostly everything in our life today is automated. Humans as well are going to be even more civilized, and more rational, leading to increase of the size of the brain. These sorts of processes occur spontaneously, and this is how evolution works.
So I think that Nature is the real controller of our life. Somehow, and as days pass, I’ve been getting more and more sure that Nature is God. What we read in religious books of how God is a single figure, is – in my opinion – a way God is symbolized for the human mind to accept and believe in. In fact, God is an infinite entity. He was always there, and is still here, because simply, He’s more of a psychological power than a physical existence, and any powerful psychological ability shows up on other things, which are Nature and what it contains in this case.
