This comment is for Jwan Lopez and any others who decide to read this.
There are many possible answers to complicated questions such as evolution
and when the earth was made. I am a devote christian, but believe in these
things and many other controversial topics. First off....evolution. We are
still evolving, and everything else is evolving, the only problem is that
it is a very long process. When i mean long i mean over millions of years.
We can find evidence in this such as natural selection and fossil records.
For example, there are no more short-neck giraffes because long-neck
giraffes because a)they have a more dominant trait and b)the short-neck
giraffe was unable to survive in the environment it was in whilst the
long-neck was not. These however are just part of a grand design, but I
will address this later. The creation of the Earth has so much evidence
that it is hard for me to comprehend how it could not be over 10 billion
years old. First off, whos to say our time and God's time are the same. if
you seriously think about it, God's time is eternity and who is to say his
day is the same as ours. Also, archeologists and scientists can date back
rocks and meteorites over billions of years. Most importantly, the Big
Bang. If you believe in the Big Bang, you are most likely to believe the
Earth was created 16 billion years ago. Anyway, I will address no argument
on the Big Bang and assume everyone believes are at the least acknowledges
it as a possibility. So, recent scientists and researches have determined
to the thousandth of a millisecond back to the Big Bang. There is no other
explanation of this amazing event to have occured unless someone or
something sparked it off. That being an intelligent designer or God. Next,
s homosexuality. I don't like to address this subject because it effects
peoples emotions, however, I would like to reduce the ignorance of some
people. There is in fact a zoo in Africa that holds 2 gay vultures. They
have researched with these animals and they both seem to hold a homosexual
culture. If an egg is placed for them to care, they will both tend to it.
if they are placed seperately with female vultures, they will not respond.
And yes, they do try to reproduce. Now, with this evidence and the fact
that 11% of the country is gay, how can you not agree that there are
homosexuals. I tell you this, in my words, homosexuality is almost
completely psychological. It involves ones environment and how they were
raised as a child. For example if a ministers son is raised to live in a
harsh environment where he is told that being gay is a sin and he will go
to hell, on reaction of the son is to rebel, and become in fact gay. Also,
this is only one reason. There is also more biological evidence that backs
up certain gay qualities. But, Im not to familiar of the process, so if
you wish to know more of your brain and the neuron, i advise you to take a
psychology class. One more thing, being gay is also a peer pressure effect.
Many teens I know become gay or experiment to be different, and I believe
they are just aiding to the stereotypes people produce. One thing i will
say though is I am sorry for posting this comment. I fully understand that
this blog is for commenting on this poem, however i disagree with some of
the comments Jwan made and refuse to just stand by. I will pray for all of
you to find the answers to your questions, be it God or Science. Thankyou
for your time.

Although Whitman has many Hebraic references, I feel like this poem is
using "God" and "Creation" as a symbol for the macrocosm of existence and
the fact that he uses the word "I" puts himself as the microcosm
(observer). This poem asks significant questions about what it is to exist
in the society we run in, whether in direction or no direction. I feel that
this poem pays tribute to human existence in this society, and Whitman
wrote this to wake people's senses during the Industrialization era... to
bring people out of the modern experience and into a deeper one. It is
ignorant to say this poem is "Christian" and to determine Christianity as
the right path is completely biased (especially since we live in a world of
many diverse cultures, beliefs, religions, and philosophies. WAKE UP!).
This poem isn't meant for religion. It's meant for spirituality.
Spirituality is something we feel within and religion is a set of laws that
guide's the believer. Whitman creates a dualism of matter in laws in our
society with spirit to ratify a new American dream. Personally, I believe
that the ideas in this poem could exist if people in our society would open
their eyes and hearts to the corruption that filters through our nation but
is masked by the insanely material addictions our government is force
feeding our blind brothers and sisters. We are all here NOW. Whitman
provokes these questions for a reason. Find it within yourselves. Find

well im a firm beliver in christ and for all of you woh dont believe in
christ but do believe in nothing or another god than please answer sone of
these questions... of you believe in evloution when yall said that
everything revolves into diffrent things and that we all came from monkey
than why arnt we still revolving now? And for all of you who believe in
homosexuality why dont you see animals going around chasing after the same
sex? And finaly, for all of you woh dont believe in Jesus Christ How was
this earth created and how did every thing get here? In the bible GOD days
that he knew you before you were. why would GOD send his son to die on the
cross for you and that he shed his blood for you to just waste it like it
is nothing to you.And your probally thinking of all of these good questions
about what I just posted, and its true and all that you have to do is ask
Jesus Christ to come into your heart and forgive you of all of your sins so
that you can be in heaven with me someday. Hoplfully when I die that I will
see whoever reads this message in Heaven. Thank you so very much for taking
time out of your day to hopefully become a beliver in Jesus Christ.

I think hes trying to say... no offense though.. that God did not create
society, but we ourselves did because we all have a God in our soul, we
created what is now today.

I like this poem. It truly reveals the "god" in all of us. It also pays
tribute to human life itself. It's a small insight into the super-concious

i think he is saying that you can be your own god, a highly contraversial
thought during the time.
