Creation and evolution are absolutely against each other. Creation means completion, evolution means constant growth. Growth is possible only if things are imperfect, and they remain imperfect. However they grow, there is always a possibility of growing more. There are a few other things which had to be considered.
If you are created, it cannot have freedom. Have you seen any machine having freedom, anything having freedom? anything that is created is in the hand of the creator, just like a puppet. He has the strings in his hands, he pulls one string….. you must have seen a puppet show. The strings are pulled – the man is behind the screen, you don’t see him, you simply see the puppets – and the puppets dance and they fight, but it is all false. The puppeteer is the reality.
These puppets cannot have freedom to fight, to love, to get married – all these things happen in a puppet show. To dance or not to dance, or when they don’t want to dance, to say, ” No! I am not going to dance. ” The puppet cannot say no and all the religions have been teaching you not to say no: Don’t say no to God, to his messiah, to his holy book, never, never think in terms of saying no.
Why? If you cannot say no, what is the meaning of yes? it is a corollary – yes has meaning only when you are capable of saying no. If you have to say Yes, then there is no other alternative except yes. I have heard that when ford first started manufacturing cars, he himself used to go to showroom and take interest in the customers talk to them. He would say to them, ” You can choose any color provided it is black” – because at that time only black cars were available. You are free, provided your answer is yes. What kind of freedom is this?
Puppets cannot have freedom. And if God has simply made you, you are a puppet. It is better to revolt against God and be a being than to submit and be a part of puppet show, because the moment you accept yourself as a puppet, you have committed suicide.
