The Shards is the only religion that truly reconciles "creation" and "evolution". This is because Darwinism is too cut and dried. It's true the strong will survive, however, that's much too simplistic.
The desire to ameliorate (to get better), and the desire towards perfection are passed on from generation to generation. The Shards explains instinct, and collective consciousness.
The Shards are species specific. This means that if a cow dies I don't suddenly get the desire to go out munching grass in a field. If you consider species as branches, this would mean "branch specific". And since the part of the branch which originally connected us to the "evolutionary tree" is no longer in existence, we have been "cut off".
What happened, what happens, and what is happening with evolution is that Desire causes evolutionary change, and this holds true for all other life as well. If an animal desires something, this desire (although perhaps not fulfilled within that certain creature's lifespan) is transmitted at that being's death to the hundreds of thousands of members of his/her own species who retain that desire and in turn transmit that on to the after-siblings.
We're talking about things that Darwinism can't easily explain. Why do butterflies have those particular colors, why does the archer fish choose to spit at his prey, why do salmon go back to the same place every single year? A lot of these questions cannot be answered by Darwinism, most religions simply say, "Well, that's the way God planned it". True, but God planned it from the inside.
There's no difference between evolution and creation,
If we trace all the branches of evolution back to the very beginning, we will find that all plants and all animals come from a common fore-sibling.
So that no matter what Shards you have, these are all traced directly back to the MOTHER SHARD, which originally multiplied, and each one of these splits created a branch and often each one of the branches created a sub-branch etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.
As time goes on these links, while becoming more and varied, cease to exist. When an animal or plant goes off in a certain distinct evolutionary direction, its connection with other animals or plants that it may have been related to in former times before doesn't exist anymore, so the Shards can't transfer over any more.
Any evolutionary branch that is isolated for the amount of time required to become a distinct species, doesn't transmit Shards to members of the formerly related species because of the differences of evolutionary directions and because the original link between the two species has died out a long time before. Because the branch has been cut, the "new" branch is no longer connected back to that link. By becoming more and more specialized, each branch of organism becomes more different from other similar species.
The new species is a separate entity, the Shards only travel between members of the same species. This means that the Shards of mankind only travel among mankind because we are a separate branch. Racism is totally wrong because we really are all brothers and sisters here together.
Shards are transferred every single day, every single second between all races of man. This is why we are all brothers and sisters.
The world has stumbled along so poorly is because no one ever realized this before the Shardal Revelation.
Everyone seems to think that they're their own little package and that they are somehow be unrelated to the rest of humanity. Where in fact no matter how much you want to deny it, everyone is very much a member of humanity.
We have positive desire, which is what we want to cultivate in our own lives. Because by making ourselves, each and every one of us, i.e. by making ME better on the inside, and by passing on those positive desires, I make the entire world, eventually, a better place. It's one thing to make the world a better place on the outside, but it's another thing to make the world a better place on the inside. And that's where evolution really happens.
You may be thinking, "Are you saying that we can change our DNA simply by desiring to?" Yes, that's absolutely correct.
There are obviously other physical factors which take place in the shaping of anyone's psyche or even physical being. It's clear that you're not going to become muscular just by sitting around desiring to have big muscles, you're not going to do a lot of things just by sitting in your armchair and wishing for them.
Everything is related, and yet unique. God's interior desires have caused you/us to evolve into this stage of development. A bird desires to fly. The earliest birds (pterodactyls) desired to take flight long before they evolved wings. Without the desire to fly, the bird would have never convinced its DNA structure to sprout wings. And yes, I am saying that you can cause mutation in the DNA chain simply by desiring to do so, although it may take an eon to complete an evolutionary wish.
Studies with cancer patients show that the power of positive thinking can raise the level of anti-bodies in the organism, I'm saying that we can do even more than that.
On the other side of the coin, negative whirlpool thoughts can cause many psychosomatic illnesses which eventually become disabling or may even result in death. Changing a DNA chain through constant negativism remains a plausible explanation for the root cause many modern diseases.
We all know that mutation exists, but what we haven't known up till now is how we can use this to our benefit. If you have a positive desire to change something / anything, that's great.
But there's only so much we can change. If everyone decided to grow a sixth finger by common consensus, it still might not come about. Desire is very closely related to what we need for our survival. We don't need six fingers to survive.
We're building on our fore-siblings' foundations, and at the same time fulfilling our fore-siblings' desires. This means the more you/we excel the more you/we will be able to excel, and consequently this means the whole human race from here to eternity. If people just laid down and took whatever comes, evolution would come to a screeching halt.
The goal is a healthy mind in a healthy body. One can make physical changes in the being, which can also be later transmitted genetically.
Evolution is effected by the desires of the orgasnism to move in a certain direction.
Our psychological stumbling blocks prevent us from achieving our true potential, they slow us down. What we need to do is eliminate these neurotic obstacles from the human psyche. We may not be able to do it in one lifetime, Rome was not built in a day. Still we have to begin somewhere and if we all work together - someday, maybe after thousands of years of "conscious evolution", we'll have finally cleared ourselves of our unwanted and unneeded psychological baggage.
But unless we become aware, and start trying to really change ourselves first, adding positive action to positive desire, we'll be straddled with these problems forever, and I do mean forever.
The only way around this is to do what we have to do in order to get ourselves clear on the inside, and at the same time not forget to do what we have to do in the exterior world in order to build and make this planet someplace that's good to live on for all peoples, and not just the privileged few. This sounds like a lot of work, and it is.
The Shards says that if you truly believe it possible, we can harness the forces of evolution to eventually make the Earth a place where peace, happiness and true justice prevail for all of humankind.
You are not only composed of whatever Shards may have been present at the time surrounding your birth, you are also composed of genetic characteristics, there's no disputing that.
You're also composed of linguistic, cultural, etc features that typify any geographical or political region. Both nature and nurture have a great effect on the myriad of characteristics that make up what we term "an individual's personality".
The question has often been asked:
The answer is "Shards, Nature & Nurture".
