It seems that participants in this forum take great assumptions that creationists are christian. For some like me, a non-christian, creation theory is different. My take on creation has a much simpler perspective compared to the christian persuation.

I believe that creation does not rely on deity but more on arrangement. The whole premise of the christian deity is based around intervention. God created the universe based on some emotional whim or a strict purpose that we are unsure about. Some say love, others boredom. It seems that the deity the christians believe has an all too human behavior. For me, I find this to be the first indication of a biased conception of thought and reality. We are unfortunately limited by our humanity and trying to find any form to answers any questions will always have our so called "objectiveness" as an obstacle. The christian counter to this is by empowering humanity with the thought of being the specie granted with the image of the creator.

Being a Taoist, I believe in the yin and the yang. I believe that the opposite things give birth to each other. The creator (whatever it is) in one end and us (the universe et all) in the other. His existence reliant on ours. He(it) is the void, we are what fills it or the opposite(depending on your point of view). This is the equation, circumstance or arrangement that seems to dictate everything. From the variable temperature in the secondlaw of thermodynamics, man/woman, good/evil, etc. In short, the creator is our opposite.

I find it strange that we use the wrong branch of science to truly understand the questions we pose and answers we assume in this forum. I guess this is bound to happen when religion is in the fray.The methods of behavioral sciences, such as anthropology and psychology, is so relevant on understanding our social construction our reality. If we can't understand our reality, then how can we truly understand the relevance of the questions and answers we put forth on anything?
