: yanniru: : The hidden meaning of the story of Noah is that humans are responsible for ensuring the survival of other species. : Greg: : I see the story of Noah as allegorically representing the global catastrophe that caused the iridium layer. This was an act or occurance that allowed the proliferation of the evolution of the mammals that inhabit the world today that was held in stasis by the evolutionary superiority of the reptiles of the Triassic and Jurassic Periods. I see this proliferation of evolution as the allegorical representation of the animals on Noah's Ark, and The Family of Man was also on this Ark. It is Satan in the Tree of Knowledge that has taught us that it is we who are responsible for ensuring the survival of other species, for it is the detrimental influence our knowledge has had on other forms of Life that has lead us to understand the Circle of Life and the Nature of Umbrella Species that are a part of the Circle of Life. This leads us to understand that we must consider the consequences of the use of our knowledge before we employ it and learn to employ it only when we can do so with consequences that benefit ALL Life, instead of just our own.


But can life be for life sake? Is life a perpetual momentum that has no cyclictic reset? Are the events happening caused not by our determination as a free-willed accomplise of god but a victim, an instrument of creation. Our existence affects, may it be good or evil – and that's a matter of perspective. Is the process of so-called destruction, another instrument of "earth" evolution? If it's not us, it might be another tool of nature to impose the "balance". Another iridium layer? Like the way of nature, evolution is essential. The earth is an organism that will not remain in it's unchange state for infinity. The Tao applies.
