According to this article here, some researchers don’t seem to think that we humans evolved here on Earth.
Mankind is supposedly the most highly developed species on the planet, yet is surprisingly unsuited and ill-equipped for Earth’s environment: harmed by sunlight, a strong dislike for naturally occurring foods, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and more. – (Source: Simple Capacity)
The bit about sunlight is quite inaccurate in my opinion. We may be harmed by sunlight in excess but we are not harmed by sunlight in moderation.
There are people who apparently get most of their nourishment from sunlight. It takes quite a bit of training, but sun gazing seems to be quite beneficial when done properly.
Apparently, if you master the art of sun gazing you could virtually live off of that alone.
Seems bizarre, I know, considering we’ve been brought up with materialist world views. But the truth is that food, after being digested by the body, becomes energy that sustains our human body.
Considering that sunlight can also be transformed into energy, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to conclude that humans who can processes and absorb that energy can live off of it. So then the question is, can a human be trained to absorb energy from things other than food? And it seems like the answer to that question is, yes.
You have people like Nikola Tesla talking some sort of energy field that surrounds us, which apparently humans can interact with.
Then there’s Buddhist philosophy, which teaches how one can be truly happy in life. And if true happiness is achieved, then a person probably doesn’t get overwhelmed with negative experiences here on Earth as described by the above mentioned article.
Then you got Jesus Christ.
According to Jesus, we humans need more than food to live. All throughout the recorded history of Jesus, it can be noted that he procured food and drink for a whole lot of people. As for Jesus himself, however, he didn’t eat much.
Then you’ve got writings in the Bible talking about how God will make you whole again and how an old man can have more vigor than a young man, it begs the question.. is there more to reality?
And now there’s this dude in Illinois, who built a replica pyramid in his back yard, coated it with gold, and was able to harness some sort of mysterious energy from it.
So did we evolve on Earth?
I don’t think this is relevant to leading a happy life here on Earth. I don’t think that this has anything to do with chronic disease or a dislike of some naturally occurring foods here on Earth.
I think with more knowledge about our history, our environment, and ourselves we can overcome these supposed inherent “bad traits”.
Modern day society, particularly Western society, places a near 100% emphasis on material existence though there’s more to life than material things.
