The Doubting Thomas

It was in Karel Capek’s “Rossum's Universal Robots”, that the word robot was first used. And also in this play, the question on how the robot’s raised consciousness was likely to affect it’s creator: mankind. Today, we are experiencing the damning existence of that question and the phenomena of robots even seemingly more intelligent than anyone of us.

Deutoronomy 7:16: “Devour then all these peoples whom Yahweh your God delivers to you. Show them no pity, do not serve their gods, for otherwise, you shall be snared.”

There are so many accounts of unidentified flying objects (UFO) now called UFVs (Unidentified Flying Vehicles), but in our studies let us consider one of the most controversial ones; one which involved a high-ranking naval officer that one which involved Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd of the United States Navy.

Whenever Mohammed was confronted by throngs of unbelievers who doubt his prophetic claims, he would say that he was just sent to warn the people and not to perform miracles. There were even times that he would ask the provocateurs to wait and yet nothing ever happens. One can’t blame the Jews and Christians especially in Yathrib (Medina) because they knew the fact that real prophets can really perform miracles as recorded in their writings and oral traditions.

In recent years, the rise of the information age and the internet has brought forth renewed attention to a scientific hypothesis rooted in strict biblical fundamentalism from the early 19th century. The notion of a flat earth, fueled by the widespread use of social media, has gained immense popularity on platforms like Youtube, attracting hundreds of millions of views and giving rise to a fervent fascination with conspiracy theories. Although the concept of a flat earth may seem unfamiliar and peculiar to many, it originated in the 1830s as the brainchild of a quack doctor named Parallax.

Juan Luna's magnificent masterpiece "Hymen, oh Hyménée!" has resurfaced to the public and is now being exhibited at the Ayala Museum after 132 years. Luna thrived during a golden period of artistic success from 1884 to 1889, a mere 25 years after the publication of Charles Darwin's groundbreaking scientific treatise "The Origin of Species" which postulated the theory of evolution by natural selection. Later, we will try to see how the concept of multiverse plays within the Mystery of God’s Creation.

The reason why I chose the topic is that after watching the movie Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness by Marvel, I realized that it might be a good idea to discuss where all this madness is coming from. Obviously how it penetrated popular culture, film, comics, video games etc. Another interesting movie in a multiverse setting is Spiderman No Way Home also by Marvel, but for now we will focus on Dr. Strange. Later, we will try to see how the concept of multiverse plays within the Mystery of God’s Creation.

About The Doubting Thomas

Present day social media is full of podcasts, documentaries, panel discussions, debates on the different aspects of modernism. The internet surfer whose aim is to find the Truth will, at the current rate, find the waves tempestous enough for a ride. This platform channel will try to allow the reader some thinking time to seperate the truth from the false, as they are now expertly dissolved us in the formula: Truth + False = Trolls. Essay readings from this channel will allow the Doubting Thomas in us to consider the possible evidence at hand before assuming credence. It is hoped that the clearwater revival of said topics will allow all murky sediments to settle and allow the truth-seekers to see what more is in the water. Is it the water from the jaws of the Dragon or part of a sacramental immersion into Jordan, hoping that the journey will not end in the Dead Sea.
