Much is being said in the media these days about the Pope’s comments on the Big Bang Theory and creation. Interestingly, the Pope was quoted as saying that creation and evolution have worked together for eons to bring the universe to the point it is at today. These two forces have worked hand in hand, rather than being notions that are mutually exclusive.
Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that it was a clergy member in the Catholic Church that first proposed the idea of what we know as the Big Bang. Evolution and the scientific study of such have shown that all living creatures have grown and changed over time into what we now see in existence. Further still, all living creatures continue to grow and change with the forces of evolution. This is not a static force.
In terms of spiritual growth and spiritual awareness, a current has also been flowing through the human race since the beginning of time, with a gradual and unrelenting force. This has caused conscious awareness in humans beyond the self and beyond the five senses. Just as physical changes have occurred with
evolution, so have spiritual changes. We are now in an era with a vast number of humans who are consciously aware and participating in reality with their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. The time as arrived.
