It was a huge explosion, according to scientist. That explosion created the universe. That is the theory of the Big Bang! The question will always stand and challenge modern minds: HOW DID THAT EXPLOSION STARTED? “RANDOMLY” could be the answer. But many scientists do not think so. They see an order in the whole creation: From the great galaxies to the ADN. This brings to the table THE INTELLIGENCE DESIGN THEORY. There is another theory related to the creation: THE STRING THEORY.
Modern scientist cannot answer the question: WHO STARTED THE FIRE? How can a piece of dynamite explode by itself? We have to admit it has to be something behind that explosion: IT HAS TO BE AN INTELLIGENCE! Neither Inti nor Huehueteotl had human forms; but that form represents that intelligence: IT HAS HUMAN ATTRIBUTES LIKE A HEAD AND A HEART!
The Creator was always depicted as an old man as Hueheteotl is depicted and the Christian Creator too. No one has a human form, they are not humans; but the human shape is just a symbol of intelligence and love (Head and Heart), the power to create (Hands) and the power to move (Feet), etc.
The Creator is a force, but an intelligent force aware of itself and able to think before creating. The Creator of the universe made the gods or angels (for Christians). These gods made humans with the form of them. The same bible, in Genesis, says “LET’S MAKE MEN WITH OUR RESEMBLANCE”… Please note this: “LET’S MAKE…” It does not say: “I WILL MAKE” and check Psalm 82 where written is: “GOD IS AMONG THE GODS IN THE DIVINE TRIBUNAL…” Please do not forget that Angels are many, some of them: Michael, Raphael, Anael, Gabriel (Hermes for the Greeks), etc.
Well, this is not a religion discussion. I just try to explain the meaning of THE CREATOR as the ancient cultures saw him…. Or should I say “saw her”?…
The more science is developed the more we understand the mysteries of the universe. I believe our science and technology are just babies at this point (Year 2012), but science is moving fast! The problem is: SICIENCE IS MOVING FASTER THAN MEN! We might discuss this point some day, it could be too long now.
INTI the great INCA god of the fire, that shining star, was a way to symbolize the INTELLIGENT FORCE WHICH CREATED THE UNIVERSE. The Aztecs used to call it: THE LIFE GIVER! It is a real truth, whatever you believe it or no, whatever you agree or not.
All cultures worshiped the Sun, this is a fact. But they did now worshiped the physical sun, but a spiritual sun. In other words, they were aware of an INTELLIGENT FORCE symbolized on the sun.
We must accept that many things exist beyond our understanding. We could mock at the ancient people if we take the ancient symbols in a literal way; but when we understand the symbols and we grab the meaning then things change.
Our ancestors had a great wisdom and they knew a lot more than we do. They understood life. We do not understand life and that is the reason why our planet is a mess!
There are more things beyond this material world. Where is the source of energy of everything,? where everything comes from? the origin is not here in this universe, the universe is the outcome from something beyond the material world. The root of everything is INTI, the super fire that creates life. THAT GREAT FIRE, INTI, WAS REPRESENTED AS THE BURNING BUSH WHICH TALKED TO MOSES. Yes, that INTELLIGENT FIRE!
The Sun and the Moon were sacred to ancient people, but again not as those spheres we see with our eyes, but as the meaning of a superior and intelligent force which does not need you, but we all need.
The Sun was the father and the Moon was the mother. We all know that energy needs two poles, one positive and the other negative. Well, check any battery or study the basis of electricity. Energy needs those two poles: The sun is the positive pole and the Moon the negative pole.
Now we understand the need of THE FEMININE DIVINITY!
The moon was always the representation of that Feminine Divinity. It was in every single culture: Isis, Hathor, Sekmet, Venus, Minerva, Ceres, Freiya, Saraswaty, Devi, Durga, etc. Christians tried to erase the divine Feminine, probably because of machismo. Machismo, believing women are inferior than men and therefore they most submit their will to the arrogance of men, is ignorance. Anyway, the goddesses of Christians survived in the form of: Mary, Fatima, Guadalupe, etc. They are called VIRGINS. Now days Christians do not see them as goddesses as they do not see the angels as gods, but... what else are they? They are still worshiping them as our ancestors worshiped the goddesses and the gods.
Sometimes you will see stars around them and, in some cases, the moon. Check under the feet of the virgin of Guadalupe for example.
All civilizations had goddesses and without they (The negative aspect of the energy) the universe could not exist! Can the positive energy exist alone? No, energy needs both poles.
