Evolution – Man and the Ape

  • A man has free choice to elevate himself above the ape through religion.
  • A man can be lower than an animal when he uses his intellect for destruction.
  • Following a Code of Ethics and Morality will gain for you a share in the afterlife.

The bible encourages mankind to prove in their lives that they are not homo sapiens evolved from the Ape. Religion came into the world to make this distinction. There is a great similarity between Man and the Ape. Both have similar physical stature. Both have hair on their bodies. Man the ape is also called Homo sapiens. Some say the main spiritual work of man and woman is to find how they are distinguished from the Ape.

The Bible describes the creation of the world. On the six day was created the Ape and Man. The Ape was created before man on the sixth day. The last of creations of God was man Adam and Eve. When a human being behaves like an animal; an angel in heaven says your source is in the Ape who was created before you. When a human being acts in a Godly way displaying all his positive characteristics, the angel in heaven says there is no relationship between man and the ape like black and white; night and day. The distinction between man and the ape is that God blew into the nostrils of a man the breath of life. Man was created from the dust. God blew into his nostrils the breath of life. The ape was created alive from the beginning. Man was given a special soul.

Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden. They were worshipped by all the creatures of the world because their physical bodies were transparent without any feeling of self only feeling the spirit within them. The snake in the Garden of Eden stood on two feet like man. Unlike the Ape the snake had intelligence and the ability to speak. The snake hugged Eve with great affection. She felt physical love for the first time in her life. He touched her in sensitive spots. She learned from the snake these sensitive spots on her body and went to give Adam the pleasure she felt from the gentle touch of the snake. They both felt for the first time their animal souls. They now knew that they were both Godly and an animal with two consciousness. As it says, And Adam knew Eve. He knew her through physical love.

The animal soul of man is very similar to the ape. The ape seeks a companion for love. A man seeks a companion for love. The ape is primarily interested in survival of its species and its own self. The part of man which is the animal soul can be visualized as a walking ape. Smoking pot for the first time may give the realization that we are all animals. Man is a different animal more sophisticated in intelligence and speech communication than the ape and other animals. Animals show sometimes qualities that are admirable like dogs that show loyalty to its master, cats are known for their modesty, ants build together homes. Animals also have a touch of Godliness in them.

The Bible refutes evolution of man. After the sin of eating from the tree of knowledge Adam and Eve had children who were more similar to apes or chimpanzees than they were. Man can sink lower than the ape; or elevate himself to higher levels of service of man and God. God gave two plans for improving the status of man that he should be distinguished from the ape and not be called homo-sapiens to refute evolution. These two approaches are through following the law of God a code of ethics or through denying the animal instincts through fasting and celibacy.

Guru Janardan devoted himself to Yoga to elevate himself and others above the animal man.

Judaism is a plan for Jews in which they live by a Code of Ethics. The Torah also called the Old Testament made the Jewish people into a Torah nation following the Biblical Law of Moses. The forefathers of the Jewish people Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived moral lives each one had a wife or wives and family educating their children in the way of morality distinguishing them from the ape.

A Jew lives his life with a wife, the mother of his children and they build a family. The family unit distinguishes man from the ape not only for Jews but for all people. The family man is not enough of a distinction between man and the ape because families can build nations which commit genocide. It may be necessary through war to build a nation but once the nation has become established it should no longer be necessary to employ genocide but only to defend the nation and its borders.

Nations which thrive on genocide for their survival sink lower than the ape. Hitler, Stalin, other dictators who may have been family men lived on lower levels of consciousness than the ape. This type of human life does not refute evolution. Only human life living according to a Code of Ethics and morality the law of God, the Ten Commandments refutes evolution.

Before the giving of the Ten Commandments and the Exodus from Egypt described in the bible, there were exceptional men in each generation who exemplified higher spiritual consciousness. Noah lived on a higher plain of spiritual consciousness. Also in Genesis is mentioned that Abraham visited the King of the Supernal God who some claim was Shem the son of Noah. These men connected their lives to Adam before the sin of the tree of knowledge. Christianity connects to Adam before the sin of the tree of knowledge as women nuns, and priests. They do not demand this type of self-affliction for everyone but encourage the way of family following a Code of Ethics and morality to distinguish man from the ape.

Men and Women who in their lives distinguish themselves from the animal and ape are guaranteed by God to return to the Garden of Eden to receive their reward in the afterlife.
