Comment: Evolution occurs at the intersection of the interaction of two forces: positive and negative. Scientists say that the explosion of a small cluster of energy, which was smaller than an atom, led to the formation of what we see around us. This, in my opinion, is harder to believe than that God created everything by some single act.
My Response: Yes, indeed, it seems incredible.
I remember the times before the Big Bang theory was accepted. People believed that the universe existed indefinitely and was unlimited in size. This is what they told us at school. Why? That was simply the way it was, without any connection to a person.
Humans were considered an accidental formation of life on Earth as a result of the coincidence of some properties. This is how we develop, this is how we live, this is life. That is, a purely mechanical theory was recognized.
In parallel, there was, of course, the so-called divine theory (creationism), which stated that an upper force created all this because it wanted to.
Question: What does Kabbalah say?
Answer: Kabbalah says that neither one or the other is wrong. We simply need to understand what is happening to our world based on what reveals to a person studying Kabbalah.
One reveals that there is a program of creation based on a positive upper force that develops everything and governs this program. We can call this force “our Maker,” “the Creator,” or “God”—it does not matter.
This force controls everything. It has a program, a preset goal, and we develop along this path, whether we want to or not. No one asks us about this at all.
We have a given starting point of our development and its end so we can go through this whole path, develop, and comprehend ourselves. Based on this, we would comprehend our source, the Creator, the upper force of nature, to such an extent that we would absolutely and completely identify, connect, and merge with this force.
