God geralt

The other day, me and my nine year-old were having an interesting conversation at the dinner table.  We have a lot of interesting conversations; mainly because he’s so interesting.

In our discussion, he was describing how he noticed that certain people just know how to do things and do them well.  Things like advanced math, science, music.

“They’re called geniuses,” I said.

I continued and shared with him a story about a young boy who has no real exposure to classical music.  Neither one of his parents played and instrument;  nor did any of his grandparents.  However, this elementary school kid walked into a music one day, picked up an instrument, and began playing as if he played as if he was an accomplished musician.  He later went on to write several symphonies.

“How?” my son asked.

“I don’t know,” I added.  “However, Uncle Clay and I came up with a theory one night in college.

“No civilization lasts forever,” I explained.  “Eventually, no matter how advanced, they seem to crumble.  The genius, Uncle Clay and I, hypothesized is a fail-safe to rebuilt society after in falls.”

I gave him a few examples…

“The Roman civilization was extremely advanced,” I said.  “We make things out of cement today, but it’s not the same cement the Romans used.  We have to use rebar when we build with cement, so it holds shape and form.  However, the Coliseum in Rome is still standing today without the use of any steel re-enforcing bars.   Historians even believed they had the understandings of Nanotechnology.

“The Roman Empire fell in 476.  But soon, the Arab world rose.  Why? …  Because of the genius. we hypothesized….

“From the Dark Ages came Western Civilization.  Why?  Because of the genius….

“Civilizations rise and fall.  After they fall, it’s the genius that steps in and saves the human race, over and over again….

“That night, Uncle Clay and I came to a conclusion:  For the genius to exist, it has to be programmed into our collective DNA.”

“What DNA?” he asked.

“You know how you program a computer? Well, your DNA is a computer program just for you.  But here’s where it gets cool….

“You and your most distant relative share 99.6% of DNA.  There’s only a 0.4% difference between your DNA — your personal “computer program” — and the person on the planet who is the most-different from you.”

To my surprise, he was still listening.  So, I continued.

“We thought, for the genius to exist, there has to be some kind of genetic memory.  Today, with epigenetics, scientists have recently discovered that genetic memory truly exist!

“So, we were right!

“However, we further theorized, for the genius to be part of our Human genome, for a genius to have evolved, there had to be some kind of knowledge of the future that all civilizations would eventually come to a destructive end….

“And, there’s only one thing that has knowledge of the future…”

“What?” he enthusiastically asked.  At least I want to believe he was enthusiastic.

“Well, it’s not what, but Who?”

“God!?” he replied.

“Yes, God! And that’s the story about the night Uncle Clay and I proved that God exists.”

“Cool,” he calmly added.  “Can I watch EvanTube HD?”
