With all the improvements in science and scientific research and space exploration, how much do we know… perhaps 10% of what is in our universe? With the large telescopes on earth and in space, how much do we see… perhaps another 10% of our universe?
Actually, we know less than 1% of what is in our universe and probably much less than 1%. The visible universe is less than 4% of what is included in the universe and probably much less than 4%, especially if the universe is an ellipse and we can only view it to its horizon. And even if the visible universe is 4%, we know just a fraction of what is in that visible universe.
So, how much do we know? Not much at all. We don’t know much about dark matter and don’t know anything about dark energy. In fact, we can say with certainty: we are pretty much in the dark.
We don’t even know that much about what is right in front of us. The invisible quantum world is right next to us, but we have only scratched its surface. There are unexplored deep oceans. There still are many mysteries deep inside the earth’s core.
We, humans, think very highly of ourselves, but actually we are a miserable lot. We can’t take care of our environment. We are responsible for a current mass extinction that may end up being worse than the Permian extinction. Our emotions make us more violent and unpredictable than any other animals.
We don’t even know much about ourselves and why we exist. Why do we think about our existence? If we didn’t have that nagging awareness, we could be like all the other animals, living through basic instincts without emotional interplay. But our consciousness and consciences make us different from other animals… and not necessarily different better. We murder based on hate, greed, sex, desire, jealousy, and anger. No other animals do that. We want gold, silver, diamonds, and currency. Other animals don’t care about these things. We want luxury automobiles and huge homes with the best furniture. Other animals could care less.
So, why are we different and what is our purpose? Well, logically there must be a reason for us to have free will and make choices based on our unique consciousness and consciences. And the only reason that makes sense is that we are being tested. Why else would we be able to make choices? Life with free will would be quite absurd without consequences for our choices. Existentialism rules our world.
Homo sapiens could have been like any other animal with no awareness or conscience, but we were given free will that no other animals have. Why? It has to be because something or somebody will examine these decisions that we have made. And, of course, there will be consequences. You cannot judge an animal that acts based on inherent instincts, but you can provide punishment for bad choices made by Homo sapiens.
So, how much do we know about a future judgment? My guess is that we know less than 1% and probably substantially less than 1%.
