What does being mean? Is there even any real meaning behind being?
"Why?", is the perennial question on the lips of every learning little child. They ask it of everything. It's how they learn. Scripture told mankind to teach children in right ways and they will not depart from it. Satan told mankind to teach children in wrong ways and they will not depart from it.
So the child has before it the Truth, and the Lie. So does all mankind.
The question of all questions is what, exactly, is reality? This life and everything involved in it is real; you can see it, touch it, measure it, examine it, perform experiments on it, etc., etc., etc. You can learn about it. But there are limits to your learning.
When you ask the Why Question of material itself, of matter, meaning all matter, as in what is it, what's it doing here, where did it come from; that's when you hit the absolute limit of human learning and understanding.
Because if man didn't create it, then man can never fully understand it.
And mankind, too, like all matter, had to have a beginning.
But - we have before us two major competing claims regarding Being.
We have the religious theory, the secular theory and various theories born of blending the religious and the secular theories in various ways.
Material Science and Theological Science split apart from each other in the "Enlightenment" breaking apart of Philosophical Science by the advance of Modernism. Since then Material and Theological sciences have grown farther and farther apart to the point of opposing, antagonizing, attacking and even hating each other. Not all practitioners of the two schools, but a clear and massive majority of them completely oppose their opposite numbers in the now-opposing other science.Today's overwhelming majority of TTRSTF4 and TTRSPTF5 who are in charge of teaching the rest of us about "Being" and everything else, are solidly in the Secular camp, radically and unreasonably opposed to belief in God and opposed to all forms of religion and religious belief and faith. For the most part, they consider themselves to be members of an elite class of academics and scientists and they hold theologians in contempt. Nevertheless, there are among them no small number of TTRSCBTF20 and other clerics who "bend" Revealed Truth to make it fit into "combination" blendings of materialistic and theological explanations of being. Thereby they, too, seek membership in the new self-adulating "elite" class of academics and material scientists.
Darwinism became material science's holy grail for explaining life forms, if not the beginning of all life, and it was modified to provide explanations for matter, which is now held (by them) to "evolve" from simple to complex forms. Again, without explaining the beginning of all matter.
Similarly, Freudianism became material science's holy grail for explaining the human mind's ability to relate to being, or reality.
And those supposedly scientific explanations got set in academic stone. They became immovable and unassailable in the Modernist elite class.
But the problem with all of that is that
Unable to deal honestly with entropy the pseudo-elitist materialist class largely abandoned the scientific method in favor of good-old-boy scientifically-credentialed Consensus-Science, or, Scientism. They simply declare what is scientific and what is not, and then take a vote on it.
The more scientist signatures they can get on a theory, the more scientific is is held to be. Forget everything other than peer review. All they do is approve of each other's claims, with drinks and cigars all around. Challenge any of their accepted theories, and the response will always be
Once upon a time Philosphers sought Truth, by studying material things, and by studying and seeking the causes of material things, including the primal first cause of all other causes. Modernism effectively ended the truly scientific seeking of Truth by dividing those who studied things from those who studied causes of things, and set them against each other.
And here we are. Caught in the middle. Wondering what's true.
And, child-like, still asking, Why?
Well, with all the major holdings of material science destroyed by undeniable entropy, maybe it's time to take another look at theological science.
Most credentialed scientists may hate this; nevertheless, another name for Reality is Creation.
Furthermore, another name for Reality is Truth, and another name for Truth is, God.
All anyone ever had to do was to read His Word.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
