Intelligence in life (2)
“Evolution and Creation”
Evolution means it is a process by which different kinds of living organism are believed to have developed from earlier forms during the history of the earth. It is the gradual development of something.
Creation means the action or process of bringing something into existence. Therefore, the two words ‘evolution’ and ‘creation’ imply the same meaning.
The question is, what is the process or action that brings about either evolution or creation? The intelligence in life in the moment is evolution or creation, because the moment is always there in life.
The moment in life needs to be present for evolution and its process to be present in the moment. The moment in life needs to be present for creation and its actions to be present in the moment.
The moment cannot always be present just by itself to include either evolution or creation. Therefore, it is important to understand what evolution and creation is which is always present by itself as the moment.Every atom is energy, because an atom is energy. Energy is light. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Energy just transforms from one form to another. Light too has no cause, but yet light is everywhere.
Every atom of whatever that exists is energy or light. This signifies that light or energy is evolution or creation. In other words, evolution is light and creation is light as well.
This signifies that light is the omnipresent intelligence in life that manifests evolution or creation in the moment, including the moment in life. This further signifies that the moment is light and, as light is everywhere, it substantiates that the moment is light or intelligence.
Evolution is the truth to science and creation is the truth to religion. If evolution is the truth to science, then the truth suggests that religion has evolved and will continue to evolve as well.
If creation by God is the truth to religion, then the truth suggests that science is a creation of God. The truth also suggests that the future state of science would be a creation of God as well.
Any moment in life can have within it only one entity either as an evolution or as a creation and not two entities. But any entity in any moment is both an evolution and a creation, because both imply the same.
The intelligence in life in the moment has manifested energy that appears as evolution and creation to knowledge. But the human intellect as knowledge neither manifests evolution nor creation. The wisdom in this revelation reveals that the intelligence in life brings both science and religion together as one through human intellect as wisdom.

Men and women have commonly regarded the study of science and the precepts of religion as offering different pathways in their daily life. Perhaps even incompatible pathways. The understanding by the wise, however, presented in this article, that science and religion have both been manifested for the benefit of mankind in the same moment by the intelligence in life as one entity is a supreme revelation. Understanding this not only closes the illusory gap in human understanding between science and religion, but it also reveals unity.
