Can Scientists Explain Away God?
Can Science Explain Religion?

Robert Wright’s “The Evolution of God” both surveys the history of religion and offers a new theory to explain why this history unfolded as it did.

Robert Wright is not afraid to think big thoughts. Wright, who contributes regularly to a host of magazines including Slate and Time and who edits the Web site Bloggingheads.tv, has written several intellectually ambitious books. In TheMoral Animal (1997), for example, he considered the young (and controversial) science of evolutionary psychology. And in Nonzero (2001), he offered a heady tour of human history and argued that ideas from the mathematical field of game theory reveal how much of that history was driven by the mutual benefits that accrue from human cooperation. In his latest book, Wright takes on an even grander subject: religion. In The Evolution of God, he both surveys the history of religion and, more important, offers a new theory to explain why this history unfolded as it did.

According to Wright’s theory, although religion may seem otherworldly—a realm of revelation and spirituality—its history has, like that of much else, been driven by mundane “facts on the ground.” Religion, that is, changes through time primarily because it responds to changing circumstances in the real world: economics, politics, and war. Wright thus offers what he emphasizes is a materialist account of religion. As he further emphasizes, the ways in which religion responds to the world make sense. Like organisms, religions respond adaptively to the world.

More formally, Wright argues that religious responses to reality are generally explained by game theory and evolutionary psychology, the subjects of his previous books...

Electricity is neither created nor destroyed. It takes other shapes. Science has also decided your dead when your brain no longer makes Electricity. That Electricity is your soul or concious so to speak. It must go somewhere. I believe back to the source....or God. Not that nutbag in the Bible. The source.

Not all of us do. Though I do think most religion is false. God(s) I consider a matter separate from religion.

Re: Can Scientists Explain Away God?
I don't see why we can't have it both ways.

Something we consider God might be a natural effect. It might be a cause onto itself. It might be a scientific fact. It could be self-created. It could be as natural as whatever this earth is capable of producing without any help from us. It would exist as a natural way. We just place too much of our own likeness on it.

No they cannot.. but this dark shit needs to go.. its totally make believe and as real as Easter Bunny. Actually the Easter Bunny is at least NICE.. but that Santa Character brings lumps of coal to bad little boys and girls. This crap has to stop on this EVOLVING planet and replaced by Cosmic Truth which includes God the Trinity.

NOT GOD

Science does not equal atheism and Evolution does not mean there isn't a god.

Good science just observes what it can.

**With Respect To Robert Wright's "Theory" Of The Roots & Origins Of "Religion" & "God" ... & In Relationship To The Understanding Of "Science" .... It Is Conjecture, They Weren't There Of This "Happening", WE Were ... Of Which Is A Sad & Painful Reminder, Of The Conditions Existing On The Living Conscious World Terra/Earth !!

**To Summarize .... It Is I Ea/Enki In That Look/Form, A Timelord, A Time Traveler, Who You Would Call An Extraterrestrial Being, As I Was Not From/Of Terra/Earth .... Who With Colleges, Beings, (Also Not Of/Terra/Earth)... That Were Experimenting, In Creating Bodies/Containers, Where "ET Energies" Could Exist In, Live/Experience In, On Terra/Earth !!

**This "Work" Had Begun, Previously With Those Of The "Old Experiments" Who Quarantined Terra/Earth, & Set Up Enclosures, Staging Grounds, Of Various Climatic Conditions, Places Throughout Terra/Earth, To See Which Bodies Were Most Adaptable, & Could Be Altered, To Accept More Then One Type/Series Of Living Environments !!

**The Testing/Staging Ground Of The Land Which You Call "Africa" Was One Of Many Such Places Throughout Terra/Earth, Which Comprised Of (2) Beings, A Female & Male Or One Of Either Party, If Working/Testing Individually !!

**It Is I, Ea/Enki, Who With Our Original Landing Party, Of The Anunnaki (Those Under The Auspices, The Leadership Of Lord Anu, The Head Of The Council Of Worlds/Association Of Worlds), That Accidentally Wandered Into A "Restricted/Controlled Environment" & Communicated With The Female That Was There, This Was Of Test Enclosure Of "Africa" !!

**Suffice To Say, Those Of "The Original Experiments" Were NOT PLEASED !!, However, Of The Outcome, Of This "Accidental Inference", As Ruled Upon (But Getting Together Of Our Specialists Before The Main Ruling), "The Council" (Of Worlds), It Was "Encouraged" For Both Sides To Share & Pool Resources/Information, Which WE Did ... Of A Further "Attachment" To The Ruling, Was The Setting Up Of A "Frequency Barrier", That Which You Know As "The Van Allen Radiation Belt", A Barrier, To Prevent Outside Contact, & To Reestablish A Quarantine Field, Previously Unmarked In Space & On The Planet Terra/Earth !!

**I, As Ea/Enki Felt Personally Responsible For The "Accident" & Decided To Stay On Terra/Earth, Before "The Barrier" Went Up, & Contact Was Cut Off/Prevented With Our Traveling World, Of Nibiru !! ... Some Of The Specialists Stayed, Many Left To Return To Our "Home" !!

**It Was Found Necessary To Fill In A Little Bit Of Background Before Proceeding To "Religion", "God", "Science" !!
____________________________________________________________

**Note: There Is A Difference In Thought/Idea Of The Changed Word 'Science" !! ... Originally This Was Pronounced: "Sense Eee Ence", The Use Of The Senses Of The Physical Form, To Determine One's Understandings, Their "Reality" !! ... When Pronounced As "Sigh Ance", This Is Of Using "Collected Data" To Form A "Generalized Consensus", A "Belief", On How Things Are & Of This "Belief" To Form, To Shape, To Understand Of Their "Reality" !! **
____________________________________________________________

**In The Joining Of The "Ones Of The Original Experiments" With The Anunnaki, (A Consortium Of "ET Specialists" From Many Worlds, Many Systems, Galaxies, Dimensions, Places, Who Have Volunteered To Reside Upon Nibiru, The Traveling World/Space Vessel, Of Those That Create & Maintain Life Throughout The Cosmos) ... We Blended Our Knowledge & Created Many Life/Lifeforms !! .... One These Were What WE Called "The Created Beings" !!

**The "Created Beings" Was A Variation Of Those Of "The Original Experiments" In Creating As Adaptable As Possible Bioforms/Units, In Order For ETs To Live/Exist, Experience In, While On Terra/Earth !!

**In Doing So, We Created Many Secular/Single Beings, That Later Grouped Together Into A Kind/Type Of "Tribal Relationship", Of Their Needs, Wants, Desires !!

**Of This "Handful Of Beings", Lets Say For A Number "25", They Were Physically Created, Of Design To Acclimate To Various Climatic Conditions, Which Seemed To Work Out !!, However, In A Further Stage/State Of Testing, Was Of The Need To Live/Exist In These Bodies, Within A "Tribal/Group Environment" !!

**The Created Being Were Educated & Taught Many Skills Needed For Their Survival, Including The Ability To Craft Objects Of Various Uses, Bowls, Plates, Cutlery, Tools For Preparing Of The Soil, Other Things !!

**Of The Creation Of Objects, What You Would Call "Personal Art", In Of Least One Occasion, The Attraction To A Piece Or Pieces, Caused Breaking In & Stealing, To Possess Such Items !!

**On One Specific Occasion, One That Broke In, Was "Caught In The Act", A Physical Pushing, Shoving, Fighting Broke Out, Of The (2) Men Involved, In Which By Accident, Of One's Head Hitting The Hard Ground, Life Of That Person Ceased !!

**This Very Act, Of Breaking In, Of Stealing/Thefting Objects Of Attraction, Led To The Discovery Of Murder, Where It Was Discovered, By Force, By Killing, One Could Acquire Such Objects !!

**The Inevitable Happened/Occurred !!, This "Illness" Spread Like Wildfire !! .... Break In's, With Material Objects Disappearing, Physical Injuries, Deaths Occurring When The Theft Was Either Discovered, Or Of Knowledge Who Stole, & The One Stole From, Enacted Revenge, By Visiting The Thief !!

**Of These Actions, It Was Not Enough To Have The Items Returned & Apologies/Forgiveness .... But There Was A Need, A Feeling That "Retribution" Was Called For !! ... Of This, Each & Every Adverse Action Taken, Any Words, Any "Injustice" Would Have To Be Paid Back, Not Of Evenness, To Balance The Scales, But Of Doing Something Even More, To Have "Personal Control" Over This Encounter & It's Final Outcome !!

**Unfortunately, The Need For "Retribution" Was Just One Of Many "Psychological Defects", That Only Was Discovered, After The "Created Beings" Lived/Existed In Those Bodies, Which Meant, The Energy Energy Encodings, The "Instructions" Inlaid & Infused/Incorporated Within The Bodies/Units Were Not In Harmony, In Sync, Not Working Together !! .... This Meant There Was Not Only "Psychological Defects", But Genetic DNA/RNA & Other Chemical Encodings That Were Also Out Of Balance, Of Errors/Defects, Which Needed To Be Corrected !!

**The Deaths, The Murders Escalated, In Which A Conclave ("Get Together"), An "Emergency Meeting" Was Called, Of Those Of The "Original Experiments" & Those Of The Anunnaki, Who Were Working With Them)!!

**The Topic/Subject Was, What To Do About Our 'Created Beings" Of Their Killing/Murdering One Another ??

**ET Telepathic Thought Was Musing, Was Trying To Figure Out What Do Do About This Situation !!

**It Was "Suggested", That The Problem Lies With, Needing To Unite These Individuals, These Tribes Under One Roof, As One !! ... To Give Them A "Central Focus" That Was Greater Then Them, Of Which They Would Listen To & Obey !!

**One ET Being Suggested, Why Not Create A "Worship Of The Creator Beings" ??

**I As Ea/Enki, Telepathically Brought Up, (Being A Time Lord, Time Traveler, Who Could "See" Various Timelines & Their Outcomes) .... Of What A "Worship Of The Creator Beings", Of What Would Happen !!

**The Created Being, Would Be United, At Least Of First, But Then This Would Dissolve, Their Psychological & Genetic Problems Not Corrected, They & Their Descents Would Keep Of The Same Actions, The Same "Traits", Expanding Upon These, & Of These "Actions", These 'Decisions", To Do As They Pleased, Their Explanation Was, That Their "Particular "Creator Being(s), Of "God(s)" Supported & Backed Their Thoughts & Applications !!

**My (As Ea/Enki) Thought Was, In Order To Make The Necessary Corrections, To Start Again, & This Time Fix The Defects, The Only Solution Would Be, To Let "Our Creations" Kill & Murder Each Other, Of Which Then It Was Only (For A Number 25 Units/Bodies Created, Rather Then Billions Of Your Day/Age !!

**Ea/Enki's Thoughts Were Considered .... & A Vote Was Taken !! ... The Outcome Was, A "Short Term Fix", To Deal With The Immediate Problem Of The Killing/Murders Was Passed/Enacted !! ... & The Response To Fixing The Problem Was ... We'll Deal With That, At A Later Time !!! ... This "Later Time" Never Occurred .... And The Defects, The Madness, Was Passed Down To & Through Successive Lineages, "Down The Line", Where The Illnesses Spread Throughout Terra/Earth !!

**It Was Depressing, Of A True, Damn If You Do, Damn If You Don't Situation, Where If A "Worship Of The Creator Beings" ... (Later To Be Watered Down Of Words/Meanings To Become .... "Worship of The Creators", "Worship Of The Gods" & Finally, "Worship Of God" !!) ... If Enacted, There Would Be Great Suffering, Great Destruction On Terra/Earth !! .... And If My Plan Was Approved, Then Our "Created Beings", Of That Model Would All Die !!

**If One Is Talking "Numbers", Yes, My Plan To Let The "Created Beings" Kill Each Other Off, Then Start Again .... Of "25" Versus Billions .... It Was A Bargain !!, Yet The Loss Of One Life, Was A Sadness !!, Yet, These Genetic Fixes, Could Only Be Done, If One "Starts From Scratch", Creating A "New Improved Model/Version" !!

**Of My Depression Then, A Friend Who I've Shared Many Lives & Lifetimes With .... Anpu/Anubis, The Dogon (Dog Headed Being From The Sirius Star System) Consoled Me !! .... He Did Not "Vote" As He Felt Both "Solutions" Were Not The Answer !!, Still He Helped To Cheer Me Up, Telling Me Telepathically That "One Day" Beings On Terra/Earth Would Consider The Word "God" To Be Important !! .... Of This, If One Reads From Right To Left, It Spells "Dog" !! ... & I'm One Of The Most "Dog Gone Beings Here" (Highly Intelligent, Yet Balanced Of Being Ornery/Silly !!, Hee Hee Hee !!!!)

**Anpu/Anubis, My Close & Dear Friend/Traveling Companion, Broke Through My Depression & Had Me Laughing !! ... Which He Too Was "Laugh Barking" !!, He Further Stated That Of Discovering That "God" = "Dog" ... Then The Later Ones, Of Descendants May Discover & Question .... What Does This Mean ?? ... That "God" Is A "Dog" ?? ... & Then Finding Out, The Real Roots & Origins Of The Word, That They Have Been Repeating & Using, Without Understanding, Without Meaning !! ... It Will Only Be Then, Of Going Back To Their Very Origins, Their Very DNA Roots, Of The Creation Of These Beings, & What Came About After, That Ones There Will Truly Understand !!

**Now As To Their "Science" & "Sciences", Suffice To Say, This Too, Beings On That World Have Misunderstood, Not Understood !!

**Rather Then Simply Watching/Observing Of Nature & Natural Things, The Use Of "Artificiality", Of "Data Collecting" (Which Starting Out Being Used Properly In Combination With Natural Studies/Observation) Has Taken An Exclusivity, That Is To Say, That The "Numbers Part" Has Taken Over, & The Base Goal, To Understand Through Watching/Observing Natural, Natural Things, Has Taken "A Back Seat" Or Become As Non-Existent, Only Stated As A Title/Heading, With Computer Numbers Beneath !!

**From This, "Data Collecting", Misunderstandings, Mis-Interpretations Of Data & Information, Have Taken Place, That Have Drawn To Ones To Wrong Conclusions, These "Wrong Conclusions", Have Created Their "Beliefs" Of Accuracy, Then By Stating Over & Again These "Beliefs", They Gain Acceptance As "Facts", When Truly They Are Only "Theories/Beliefs", Of Guesswork/Suppositions !!

**WE As ETs Know How To Properly Combine The Disciplines Though It Is True, That WE Have Been At This, For Millions Upon Millions ++++ Of "Years", Where In Your "Time", It Can Be Said, That You Are Not Even Approaching The Ocean, To Get Your Feet Wet !!

**And So, This Is Our Attempt To Clarify Certain
"Beliefs" & Understandings .... To Make "Corrections" Of The Current Biological Edition, & Prepare For The "New Editions" That Are To Come !!

Farewell For Now !!
