Randomness

We are born on purpose.

I am not a believer in randomness but rather a proponent of “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”. Newton’s Third Law: Action & Reaction. His third law states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction. If object A exerts a force on object B, object B also exerts an equal and opposite force on object A. In other words, forces result from interactions.

Thus, as far as our existence it is my belief that every action from the beginning of the universe has resulted in the creation of all things, including the birth and evolution of humans. Some may attribute this to their God(s) others may attribute it to the universal laws of nature. In any case, as far as humans every event from the creation and development of our gametes to the combining of the male and female gametes to form a zygote which becomes an embryo invitro, developing into a viable embryo and child capable of surviving outside the womb, to finally the birth of a living human, is not by accident or randomness. This could certainly be thought of as miraculous and the odds of you and I even existing in this universe are so remote that it boggles the mind beyond numbers.

So this begs the unanswerable question of the initial beginning of this universe. Current theory is the big bang or cosmic inflation. But where did that come from, what created the material to compose the bang? What was before that? Of course religion and science will make their arguments but in fact they are not in conflict. Those of religious faith and belief are proponents of creationism but more importantly proponents of an ethical and moral life (mostly) and those who lean towards science believe in the laws of nature. These beliefs are not mutually exclusive, they co-exist quite well. And of course neither has definitive provable evidence and both may be true.

In any case existence is real and we are not here by accident or a random unexplainable event. Therefore we are here on purpose. Don’t squander the miracle.
