Black heart: All life was created by one force,
Black heart: all de many diverse living n non living organisms were created by dis one force n de force is Jah.
Our ancestors wanted to understand this force. So what did they do? They studied the works. They studied nature. They were all trying to understand. So some of them divided the force into a small number of gods/powers that represented the more primordial forces of nature. And then others broke those down into the products of those forces and they became gods too. One force was divided into many forces like splitting white light through a prism into all the colors of the rainbow. Some of our ancestors used personification to help teach this early understanding of science. They made the forces of nature into "persons". This blended logic/reason with the more artistic side of mythology and literature. Some of our ancestors attempted to fuse all of these forces back into the original but still have it as a "person". And why people? Because people have certain characteristics; but mainly that a person can hear and respond to requests. And so the notion of "spirits" prevailed because humans needed help. It wasn't enough to try and simply understand the forces of nature. Humans wanted to influence them. This is why many nations and people all had similar systems for sacrifice and oblation. However, people at different levels of the knowledge spectrum understood spirit to mean energy rather than a ghost-like person or all-powerful superhero. Humans who wanted control made this one force into one person that they or their priests could speak for. This was a reaction to different people being influenced by different gods. You can see this in the bible with the story of Laban, but later on in Kemet(Egypt), Akhenaten failed to bring about the same monotheist revolution.
Whether you see this... Force... as one or many it is still true that the many came from the one. All these gods and their stories all EVOLVED from the same idea that traveled into different parts of the world and further changed in isolation. The same thing happened to humans and thus created different cultures. Many find this hard to understand because their minds were grown in an isolated culture and so it's like that's all there is. If you study different cultures and history that's how you can follow all these separate strings back into the original "genetic" rope. Everything split off from one. This is why all life on this planet has cells and DNA. And that's how we can read that DNA like a map to see where everyone and everything came from.
No human understands the origins of life itself. A big part of this, I think, is because we are biased against what we believe life is. So we look at simple forms of life and don't classify them as alive, Therefore we don't see all the states in between energy and sentient biological life. What if the energy was already sentient? Or what if there are such grades of life and sentience that would render many forms undetectable? Either way, I think one can either call this one Force Jah or just call it "The Force". And to say that it created everything... at that point... is really just semantics. For example... we can clearly see many ancients worshipped the sun even if they thought sun was a lesser product of the Force (which makes sense because it wasn't always visible). Seeing that life grows in the light and less so in the darkness this also sets up stories between light/dark, good vs evil, etc.
If you just want to believe dogma that's fine. It's all love. I just wanted to give you a little window into ancient thinking and philosophy so you could understand why everyone didn't take everything literally. The people who wrote all these "answers" were themselves the ones asking the questions. The answers are exactly what they believed to be the answers rather than scientifically proven fact.
black heart: Fo de fact dat scientist found dat all living things have DNA so they blieve dat all evolved from one organism. Not true. Jah created d many defferent organisms with d DNA in deir cells. Mutation is also effected by Jah.
I understand why you think this way. I really do. But as a computer scientist, someone who handles code for my job, I can tell you that I would not make the same errors in the same place in a bunch of separate files. If a bunch of separate files has the same error in the same place it is because those files were copied from the oldest copy that contains that error. Looking at the genetic code is a lot like looking at the different strata of the earth where you can clearly see changes in the environment at different times that affected that layer of the soil differently from the prior layer.
As far as Jah affecting mutation I don't think I would blame that on Jah. Most people would blame mutation on "Sin". However, imho, mutations are probably caused by the body trying to adapt to changes in environment in a way that the mutation isn't bred out but isn't necessarily functional or useful either. Hence, "junk DNA"
