I must admit that most of the content of the book Intelligent Designs was interesting and logical. Fascinated by the annual formation of complex crop circles, UFO sightings and the understanding of the infinite size of the universe that it is impossible to assume that we are alone in the universe.
Even we human are now inventing tools/technology to create life and travel beyond our planet. In that respect yes I do want to believe that creation on earth must have originated from higher intelligence. That higher intelligence whom created the universe is our God. Or as Quantum Physics put it, did we create it all – where we are the Gods.
However, I'm disappointed with a comment on page 208 of the book 'Intelligent Design' where the author presumably Rael wrote;
“The East has nothing to teach the West about wisdom and awakening the mind. Rather the opposite is true. How can you find wisdom amongst the people who die from hunger as they watch herds of sacred cows go by?
On the contrary, it is the West with its intellect and its science that comes to help people who, for ages, have been shackled by primitive and murderous beliefs. It is not by chance that countries in the West no longer face the same problems as those of the Third World. Where the minds rules, the body does not die of hunger. Where obscurantism prevails, the body cannot survive. Can primitive people solve the problems of femine in the world and give food to those who are starving? They already have enough difficulties trying to feed themselves, and you expect to find wisdom there?”
His opinion on the East is typical of white supremacist of demagogue mentality. Failing to appreciate that the east thousand years ago were living in balance and respect with nature, taking only what is necessary to survive. Until came the west colonizing the east in the pretext of instituting civilized culture, yet only instituted greed and ego.
Most of the things we learn from Quantum Physics today goes back to what the eastern ancestors have taught, which the west once label them as myth, hocus-pocus and mambo-jumbo.
If so, how can one regard Rael, or his movement as well as his claims to be intelligent?
Unlikely the supreme beings would elect such white supremacists that stole lands from others and wiped out the native inhabitants. Explored and colonized foreign lands for greed in the name of false exploration and institutionalizing civilized culture.
