This is one failed...entry to Uplift Universe CGS Challenge. I just couldn't decide to join the contest because of tons of work on my desk and besides it - I just installed brand new doors in our flat But once I joined the challenge I did produce two images.Here's the first one as a result of some questions been on my mind while reading some fragments of Brin's book here on CGS (my copy of book is on the way) I wonder if the book will answer my questions ,I doubt it but we will see about that. One of these question is are we happier Uplifted (considering we've been uplifted by some inteligent civilization,god or whatever in our past ) personally I think I could be much more happy if I were just left alone in the middle of grassy green field with my love just as we been created.
Ok we have another story here , two theories of creation and eveolution been struggling for years -who has right? in my opinion one doesn't have to exclude the other - we could be engeenered to evolve from monkeys to homo errectus then "created" to intelligent homosaphiens,that way the theory of God's creation is a missing link in ..eveolution theory's missing link ... there you go , the mistery of all times been explained ,from now on the God and Science walks the same path ..he he
Am I crazy , talking rubbish ? SURE -but what the hell , after all questioning our existence is the main reason for life...plus those which already been explained by "Month Python's flying circus" ..
" And I looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, a great cloud, with a fire flashing up, so that a brightness was round about it; and out of the midst thereof as the colour of electrum, out of the midst of the fire.
And out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man."
Ezekiel 1:4-5

I always thinked like yourself, Religion and Science can walk together, The missing link in human evolution is God direct intervention in evolution.

"Am I crazy , talking rubbish ?" - no you are not crazy, no you are not speaking rubbish. I believe in that also! And the picture... it is incredible! A futuristic/traditional fusion of the Biblical story and sci-fi.

Or maybe The Serpent came down from his throne to share his "fruit of knowledge" with the innocent human race. That knowledge being the ideas of power and pride.

I think you're right but I don't know if humans evolved from apes a really long time ago or if apes devolved from humans.
It can go either way right?
*is christian and doesn't really think humans evolved from apes but my guess is as good as the next random person's*

Oh shi- SPOILERS START HERE

Yeah it does kind of remind of Assassin's Creed 2. In the game they discover that there was no god/s, but rather there was a very advanced species called "the ones who came before" that created human beings as we are today, presumably using highly advanced technology.

SPOILERS END.

Awesome piece.

We, didn't evolve from monkeys, we share the same ancestor, which is why we are apes. The theory of evolution doesn't say anything that there can't be 2 or more paths in evolution for an species to take. Take the birds Darwins studied, one remained the same, the ones that migrated adapted to their enviroment and became different from the original that remained in the other island.

It's not my fault that you think evolution is like in the X-men, that to evolve we need wings or telepathy. Evolution means change over time, which we observe everyday.

But if you want super powerds, there are humans that can see UV light, a family in Connecticut has super dense bones, and there was this kid that was born with fully developed muscles, while others have echolocalization.

The reason the entire human race doesn't have this is cause is aislated and even though they are benefical there are too many individuals and too much migration to notice big changes.

just becuase we share some charactaristics does not mean we evolved from apes, "birds Darwins studied, one remained the same, the ones that migrated adapted to their enviroment and became different from the original"
yet they still birds bound by somelimits, unlike humans we have no boudries when u compare us to apes, we are far superior in every possible way.

its still a theory , and what you said doesnt prove anything , apes are animals and they evolve as apes, humans are BORN human we evolve as humans. Darwin's theory is closer to a fairytale.
God made humans, and made us highest among all living things. one who says we were animals once befor is only assuming without proof.

it seems im talking to an athiest here thinking all thing are created by chance , well there is a creator , a mighty all knowing one and only,and he created humans and distincted them among all others, so says all the scriptures, and the information given in one of those scriptures has only been proven by modern science then how were they revealed 1400 years ago? how can someone who has none of todays technology seethrough to the stars and many other things and has only been proven ? there is a creator and that creator says that HE made a MAN...NOT an ape....u would never be able to prove me wronge because u base ur facts on assumptions and false theories.

We evolved from apes adn we ARE apes, we are part of that side of the animal kingdom.

Theory in science is different from the theory you use in the books os Sherlock Holms which is why people get confused, and no it's not aprt of an evil plan to deceive people, youa re just ignorant. Or what? Cells are just a theory, like gravity too.

You assume there was a creation, just like people assume God was always there, we can just say the universe was always there in different states, the big bang only created the current one. Aside from the fact that all the scientific "facts" the bibles has are vague and mostly inacurate, even older civilizations that had nothing to do with christ knew things more advanced, mayans and greeks for example.

There is no creator, and even if it were, you have absolutelly no proof it's the one of the Christian fate.
