Every time anyone presents the concept of Big Bang and Evolution, there is only one question that can’t be
resolved.  Assume that the somehow amino acids were created and these amino acids combine and presto, an
amoeba is formed, life has begun.  However, there is a problem.

In order for life to continue, it requires very few needs, food being one of the most important.  Now consider, if
this is the first life, then there are no other organic materials for this simple life to use as a food source because
no other life exists at the same time.  All carbon based life forms, including the amoeba, create energy by
‘burning’ (oxidizing) organic material, using oxygen to create carbon dioxide.  The first life form would not be
capable of converting CO2 into starches with all of the sunlight because of the need for chlorophyll which surely
was not part of the amino acids and simple DNA structure.  So, how did the first life form survive?

While it is easy to accept the concept of evolution, the first of each species both plant and animal did not
happen by accident.  The species of all life forms are based on unique DNA which defines the species.  The
concept that DNA can generate randomly, to create the DNA for an amoeba species is impossible.  Man, with all
of the technology available has never been able to recreate the first spark of life, under the same conditions
that are in place after the Big Bang.  Then, on top of all of that, it is proposed that the DNA of the amoeba
evolved over time, not into a single big cell or a single species but instead into every single plant, animal,
insect, reptile, fish or bird.

The Big Bang may have created the opportunity for the formation of Earth and all of the pretty pictures show
how it happened, however, how did it start without any organic materials?  When we consider the world today
and provide options of that first fish coming out of the ocean, that possibility does not exist because there was
no organic material in the water and none on the land.

Here is an interesting concept, living creatures ranging from the smallest single cell bacteria to the largest
animal on the planet, must have organic materials to exist.  Of course, plants have developed photosynthesis
(another function in the plant capability) that is beyond the ability of man to duplicate.  While those that refuse
to recognize a Supreme Being, there is no other explanation for the circle of life.

There is always the possibility that was presented in the books “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” where a
manufacturing company built a fully formed Earth to replace the one that was destroyed by accident.  In this
scenario, there was no fish crawling out of the water.  But this scenario explains how the Earth came to be, a
fun read.  

Plants exist because of the CO2 in the atmosphere and without the CO2 the plants could not survive because
this is the primary component in the creation of starches.  CO2 is created by animals (just breathing) and the
burning of dead plants.  Animals exist thanks to the output of plants, creating CO2 in the process, which plants
use to create starches that animals can’t create.  Round and round we go and it could not have happened
unless life existed to create the first organic compounds.

Let’s draw a conclusion, in order for life to burst forth spontaneously, organic material must exist.  So what are
the options: 1) it can’t happen, 2) organic material existed prior to the moment that life burst forth MEANING
there was existing life before the life burst forth.  So, where did this organic material come from?  

The physical world around us is filled with surprises.  Did it start with Newton and the dropping of an apple
allowing a single mind to visualize gravity?  Imagine, the human eye of one man watched the same action that
had been seen millions of times in the past and yet this once, the mind captured that moment and all of the
implications.  Gravity was the single most influential natural force on Earth, at that moment in time, and no one
had stopped to consider what caused that apple to fall from the tree until the mind of one man captured the
moment and sketched out the implications and the ramifications.  

Newton was only one in a long line of humans that observed, documented and drew conclusions which changed
the course of human understanding of the universe.  Galileo observed that, contrary to the religious doctrine of
the time, the Earth was not the center of universe and proved that the Sun was the center of the Solar System
with the Earth being a supporting character in the drama of the universe.  However, this discovery had
ramifications well beyond the order of the planets orbiting the Sun, this discovery displaced humans as the
center of all creation.  It had been easy to believe that Man, God's creation, was the center of the universe for
anyone that did not have greater knowledge than wishful thinking.  

Don't forget about the contributions of a woman, Marie Curie, in the discovery of invisible fingers of death in the
discovery of radiation, proving that there were those things that we could not see and could not control.  The
discovery of radiation lead to her death due to the damage of radiation poisoning but this discovery opened up
new avenues of discovery, branching from the understanding of the stars to the smallest particles of matter.

There are thousands of other discoveries or theories that changed the course of man, one small step at a time
and each discovery is a stepping stone for the next discovery.  All of the previous discoveries lead to a clerk in
a patent office to begin exploring the theory of relativity, leading from the theoretical vision of the composition of
matter to the development of the most destructive weapon ever devised.  Surprisingly, this step to the discovery
of destruction lead to even greater discoveries of the make-up of the universe.  However, the course of the
future discoveries starts not with the observation of a physical action but instead in the visualization in the mind
by starting with a question.  We have learned enough to begin asking questions that can't be answered with
physical verification but instead are proven based on mathematics, formulas and equations.  So much of the
understanding of the physics of the universe are based on 'faith' in mathematics.

If we can believe in mathematics, are there other concepts that exist but, at this time, cannot be proven with
mathematics?  Stephen Hawkings, a mind that can visualize a world beyond the scope of most men, has
provided a physics theory of the structure of the universe and having difficulty understanding the theory is
normal for everyone else.  However, one of the concepts proposed is that the universe extends far beyond the
limits of the senses of man.

Man has five senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell.  Using these senses, man can classify and
recognize the world around him.  There is another impact on our world that is outside of the reach of the five
senses – time.  The five physical senses allow man to exist in a world comprised of three dimensions: height,
width and depth.  Now if we throw in 'time', then there is a fourth dimension because of the nature of time.

It has been hypothesized that time is actually a dimension all its own and each moment of time creates a new
time line exploring all of the optional choices that can be made.  This was developed in a Star Trek – Next
Generation episode in which the Enterprise from multiple time lines came together to solve the crisis in the time
line, keeping the universe from imploding.  Each person has their own opinion of the likelihood of this scenario,
but it is brought into the discussion to present the concept of dimensions beyond the three dimensions and time
dimension, it has been proposed that there are ten or more dimensions.  

It is impossible for most people to visualize ten dimensions because most people have trouble keeping their
clocks with the correct time.  However, the potential existence of other dimensions provides variables that allow
explanations of that which cannot be seen.

No one has ever, actually, seen an atom or a molecule or a quark or electron or string or God Particle.  Science
has provided the means to provide an expression of the existence of these particles but the human eye has too
many failings to actually see these particles just as Madame Curie could not see the radiation that was killing
her.  We accept these particles on 'faith', a faith that is much stronger than the mathematics of physics because
each of us wake up each morning and brush teeth and eat food, all in an effort to keep these particles tied

Here's a thought, what if God actually had a plan for all of those extra dimensions...

Think about it, seriously, what is holding you together?  Is there a particle glue that is much stronger than
gravity?  How do you keep from just sinking into the ground with each step?

If you know anything about physics these are not stupid questions for one simple reason – everything is made
up of something much smaller, actually a bunch of 'somethings' all bound together.  A drop of water is
comprised of millions of 'water molecules' and each molecule is comprised of three atoms: one oxygen atom
and two hydrogen atoms bound together.  However, each atom is comprised of a combination of Electrons,
Protons and Neutrons, depending on the atomic structure of the atom.  The Hydrogen atom is comprised of a
Proton and Electron (one of each) and the Oxygen atom is comprised of eight Electrons, eight Protons and
eight Neutrons.  The interaction of the electrons binds the atoms together into a stable molecule of water.

However, this is not the end, current theory holds that each electron, proton and neutron are comprised of
smaller particles, quarks and other stuff (need to discuss with a particle physicist for more information) but this
is one of the reasons why they split atoms in various research facilities, they are trying to identify the little tiny
stuff that makes up all matter.  

But the really exciting part is that something holds all of the tiny stuff together so that electrons, protons,
neutrons, strings and particles all come together to form EVERYTHING and allow the interaction to occur.  Stuff
that is too small to see come together to form bodies made up of organs and skin and muscle and bone and, in
most cases, brains.  If you want to have sleepless nights, consider this concept: you breathe air to survive but
that air is made up of the same atomic particles you are made of.  

Just a change of pace for a moment: ask any physicist one simple question: “How can the atoms, electrons,
protons and neutrons create a thought in the brain?”  This sounds like a silly question but the issue is that
these atomic structures come together and a new thought occurs.  Just a distraction.

The point is that this is not an accident.  The molecular interaction, the bonds that are formed between atoms
and molecules, can explain the formation of rocks and water and air.  But it is far bigger than that, atomic
particles come together and form a body but where does the spark of life come from?  What is it that turns that
lump of atomic particles into a living and breathing entity?  Yes, back to the Primordial Soup, but this time with
purpose – it was not an accident.

If we consider that the interaction of the atomic particles is not an accident then the next logical step is that
somehow, life was bestowed on atomic particles and then a detailed blueprint for the construction of a living
entity was followed to build that life.  But consider the process, life starts at the moment of conception and from
this beginning it is not a process of building the body, then the head, then the arms, followed by the legs.  This
is a construction process that not any builder would use but will not work for a living entity, the process for a
living entity is growth from conception to a fully developed body, adding cell by cell, extending and expanding,
developing the internal organs while expanding the head and brain, reaching with the arms and legs.  The
entity is self-aware, possibly from the moment of conception, knowing what must be done to form the living body
of the entity.  Most interesting is the development of the senses occurs at the same time as the development of
the entire entity.  The entity can feel, hear, react long before the moment of birth, long before the first breath.  
Most important, can the entity think before birth?  At the moment of conception, the entity is directing the
development of the body that house the entity and if this is done through the brain, is it possible to imagine the
scope of knowledge that is used during this process and then lost at the moment of birth?

The point is that there is something greater, something beyond the scope of our understanding that developed
this relationship with matter.  And then beyond that, the simple spark of life that infused a lump of atomic
particles to desire to breathe and eat and touch and move, explore, seek, reach.  

While you may not want to believe in something greater, that is a matter of choice but it is also a failure to
recognize the basic concepts of particle physics.  In the lab, atoms can be combined to form new and useful
materials but with all of the trying and formulating and testing, none of the resulting combinations can breathe,
cry, whimper.  

It is possible to 'clone' a living animal, however, it is important to understand how cloning is performed.  A living
cell from an existing animal is modified and introduced to another living cell and this is the moment of
conception.  Normally, the process would be the insertion of DNA into the egg cell of the female.  Notice that life
begets life, period.  That spark can be passed but only from life.  Man can manipulate that which he cannot

With all of the knowledge, with all of the theory, with all of the technology, man cannot create a spark of life.  
Man can take existing life and pretend like he is accomplishing something, but there is a line that cannot be

So there are two interesting concepts that bear further exploration: the concept of the dimensions of time and
space that exist in theory, and, the limitation on life as a divine spark.  But consider for a moment that divine
spark, here is the interesting part, what was once alive and has died cannot be re-started.  It is almost as if a
switch were turned off or, perhaps, the divine spark of life has left.  On the flip side, there are dimensions that
we cannot comprehend with utilization beyond our scope, could it be that God has a plan?

Perhaps, these two concepts are somehow inter-related.  Somehow these two concepts fit into that
aforementioned plan.  

Consider the human body, it is made up of thousands of cells, growing, splitting, dying, all part of a huge
organization.  But when the body dies, so do all of the cells, even the cells that could live off the decomposing
of other cells.  Nothing lives on.  No, this doesn't happen immediately, it takes time for the message to get to the
hair growing cells and the finger nail cells, but sooner or later, the message gets out and the body dies.

Isn't that an interesting concept – “When the body dies”?  What exactly is a ‘body’?  Science has proven that
the human body, like every other multi cell organism, is made up of cells.  Each cell has a dedicated purpose
based on the design provided by the organism DNA.  All of these cells together form the body but that is not
anything in particular other than the consolidated cells in the organism.  But still we refer to the ‘body’ like we
declare all of the trees in an area form a forest.  

So, the question is simple, if the body is made up of cells, what causes the body and all of the cells to die?  It is
almost like there is a master electrical switch someplace that is shut off, but where is it?  

The amoeba, along with bacteria and virus, is a single cell organism.  The amoeba can live on, a single cell, by
itself.  As long as there are nutrients and a livable environment, as long as nothing happens to force the
amoeba to die, it will live on, perhaps hibernating.  Bacteria and virus can live on surfaces until picked up by the
human hand and infecting the runny nose of a child.  Sure, if deprived of the essentials of life or nutrients,
these single cell organisms will die but if there are lots of nutrients, do they grow great big, a huge blob?  No, of
course not, they have prescribed limits in size and when the maximum is reached, the cell divides into two cells,
two separate and distinct single cell organisms.

But the human body dies and all of the cells slowly die also, like they are waiting to get the word passed down
to them.  Why is that?  Perhaps there is a switch or another control mechanism that has a global effect on the
body.  But even more interesting is the lack of effect from something else dying close by.  

During various wars or death camps, there are stories of a single individual that lay in the midst of others dying
and hung on to life.  The switch may have been flipped for many others, but that one life force continued to
hang on, to refuse to turn off.  From this, we can draw the conclusion that when one life force is turned off,
other life forces must make their own decision as to whether the switch is flipped on or off.  In other words, just
because a wave of death exists, that wave cannot force the decision of any life force that wishes to continue.

The body can absorb incredible damage and destruction and continue to live.  The brain has been damaged
and life continues.  Arms and legs have been damaged or removed and still the body lives on.  Medical
advances have developed the ability to exchange vital parts between two bodies and the vital parts operate
exactly as intended.  Hearts have been removed from one body and placed in an-other body and heart beats,
fulfilling a single minded task.  It can be concluded that each of these single vital parts is not the switch in itself
because if it were, when the bad one is removed then the receiving body would die.  Science has taught us how
to keep a body from dying but not how to restart a body that has died and, of course, there are levels of
damage that can’t be overcome with tricks and science.

Of course, the first objection is the impact of external damage like a bullet to the brain or being crushed in a car
accident and these incidents do occur but at the same time, in many incidents we see the moment the switch is
turned off, some will die but others will survive, why?

Of course, it should be considered that man has developed the ability to keep isolated parts of the body alive
by providing an environment to survive, for the short term, and then transplant the cells into another body.  
Many lives have been saved thanks to the technology to keep cells from dying only to be transplanted but this
does not change the original hypothesis, without the artificial environment, keeping the cells alive they would
die.  But this does prove that it is not the body that is tied to the soul, it is merely a biological environment for
the soul.  When the soul leaves the body, the cells are nothing more than cells and can be transplanted, to
another body.  But remember, these cells cannot be brought back to life, the cellular activity can only be

So, how would you classify this switch?  It seems like a pretty powerful force and seems to have a very long life
because it starts with the conception and remains with the body until the switch makes the choice to stop.
