In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, the light, the dry land, vegetation, and only then (according to the biblical account) - as unbelievable to our evolution-framed minds as it may sound - the rest of the matter in the universe: the stars and other planets and the moons, then the fishes and birds, land animals, and finally, His crowning creation, man, took a rib from his side and made a woman from it. As outrageously bizarre as all that may sound to us, when God saw it, He begged to differ and deemed it "good."
It was a spotless, you might say just about perfect world, bubbling with the knowledge of good, the sheer evidence of a divine Creator as visible by His handiwork, truly deserving of this attribute: "good."
Then along came the first lie, well presented by the mind of an obiously skilled debater and "debunker," mind you, and as innocent and perhaps gullible and naive as the first human couple was, they swallowed it - hook line and sinker, introducing into that pure world the factor that would change everything - well, nearly everything: evil.
However long or short their existence in a good and perfect world had been, the difference between what had been and was now was as vast as night and day, as life and death itself. They may not have died physically, but was this really life? Not when you've known the real thing...
In the beginning was the Word - the Word so unlike those empty, hollow, vain and idle sounds proceeding from human mouths that may say one thing and mean another - the Word of truth, perhaps hard to believe for those who prefer a lie; and as scarce as it always has been in this world, the supply of that truth was always greater than the demand for it by a race that always seems to have had a greater knack for the darkness than the light, the lie, rather than the truth.
Along came Charles Darwin with a proposition of an idea and theory he would have meant to be perhaps carefully considered, but when people heard it, they immediately embraced it as their new truth: "This is IT!" they exclaimed! "This is going to be our new truth! Let us banish the old one and teach this teaching as the sole and principal foundation of all that shall be called knowledge from henceforth. From now on, our children will grow up being taught the new truth!"
Great men arose, basing their lives' philosophy on "The Origin of Species," names that would change the world as it had previously been known (similar to the way it had so drastically changed once before, millennia ago), names like Karl Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mao - only to name a few - who proved by their unprecedented slaughter of millions that truly, this was a world of "the survival of the fittest."
New sciences were created and billions and yet billions of dollars and other currencies were pumped into new "evidence" that would support the new paradigm and the abolition of the old, (for there was no illusion that enough money could not create and make it appear deceivingly real if it was being repeated often enough), simultaneously increasing the machinery that would continuously support the survival and domination of the fittest: ever more powerful weapons, capable of annihilating every breath that would dare to rise up against them.
Soon, mankind would be ready for the appearance of the dawn of a New Age and World Order, headed by the one in whom the mindset of liberation from the old truth would culminate, and who would fill mankind's atrocious need for a god by his own forceful assumption of that position: a time of triumph for some, and one of greater sorrow than they had ever known for those who refused to embrace this final manifestation of the "new truth."
In order to make a final statement underlining the universal paradigm of "the survival of the fittest," the new world leader at last declared all-out war on those who refused to bow down to him, and on the One Himself who dwells in the heavens, a time of great persecution, bloodshed and tribulation, culminating in one final battle, which was won with one great shout and yet another outrageous act of defying all that humans would have deemed possible or even thinkable, just as He had done it in the beginning.
In the new beginning, there was love. Love in the hearts of a people who had been saved from the darkness, from the lies and from the evil they had brought upon themselves by ever welcoming these things and preferring them to the light, to the truth, and over that which was good. Love that had been acquired from the painful lesson of where all these lies, the evil and the accompanying sins would lead. Love for a God, Who, in the End turned out to have known better than all the proclaimed wise men of ages past, and - as outrageously unbelievable as it may sound once again - love, at long last, for one another.
