Philosophical Moment: Are Certain Historical Events and Actions Part of Our Ancestry?

Landscape with Milky Way in Background

Are certain historical events and actions just as much a part of our makeup as ┬áthe DNA of our ancestors? I think so…I would not exist if it were not for –> the creation of the universe –> The explosion of countless stars which led to the creation of all the elements –> the creation of our sun and solar system –> the collision of planets –> the creation of the earth –> the impact of meteors –> extinction of the dinosaurs –> the rise of our genetic Adam and Eve –> the rise of civilization –> the rise of world empires –> the exploration of men –> the slave trade and it’s ugly, brutal cruelty –> The revolutionary war –> the civil war –> emancipation –> the lack of funding that prevented my 3rd great grandfather, John Miller, from emigrating to Liberia –> The loss of over 400 acres of land by my 2nd great grandfather, Isaac Miller, which cause the move of my great grandfather and grandmother (Daniel and Mary Beal) to Valdosta –> The move of my grandfather, Bennie Jackson from Sylvester Georgia to Valdosta –> The meeting of my mother and father –> the one sperm that beat out millions which led to fertilization and my birth. Although I’m 44 years old, it took billions of years to make me!!! You and I are very special.
