The equations regarding humans are the most difficult to solve. Humankind is unpredictable and its behavior very controversial. Why are we humans such an enigma?

Humans never end with their questions. The way of Theology is a possibility to find real answers.

Humans never end with their questions. The way of Theology is a possibility to find real answers.

Humans with their unbridled imagination and ingenuity have managed to involve themselves in just about everything that affects our planet. The sacred book (if there is one) must answer questions about this interplay between us humans and the surrounding world we live in and depend upon.

What follows is an outline of the second book of The Explanation series, Audit of the Universe, in the form of social network hashtags (used on FB, T, G+ and Pin). The hashtags are accompanied by one article dealing with that subject and a universal question for which humankind sits around and debates possible solutions (plural). THE sacred book must give us THE answer and ALL these answers must be pieces that fit together to form the coherent complete puzzle picture.

You can find the hashtag outline for the series The Explanation at this page.
You can find the hashtags with hundreds of articles with my comments about The Explanation here. And, when you’re reading an interesting article in any media you can use these hashtags to enhance the library of information of how humankind functions and affects our Universe.

Frequency dependence limits divergent #evolution by favoring rare immigrants over residents http://buff.ly/2rpQdVN This is a very short introduction to a complex aspect of evolution.

New concerns raised over value of #genome-wide disease studies http://buff.ly/2uxz5QJ This article states: These ‘peripheral’ #DNA variants probably act through complex biochemical regulatory networks to influence the activity of a few ‘core’ #genes that are more directly connected to an illness.

2) #AuditPhilosophy
Why the Five Stages of Grief Are Wrong https://buff.ly/2hWTbBy They were somewhat designed to soften some of the #stigma associated with #death and ended up changing the way much of the #world thought about death.

Who can answer all these ethereal but real questions? Can humans? The conclusion of Audit of the Universe shows that humans can NOT answer them. So we have two options:

  1. The questions remain unanswered.
  2. We look to another s/Source for answers. It is this latter channel we’re following. That is the role of Theology: To find the s/Source’s answers–not what humans might imagine or interpret regarding this s/Source.
