TBD on Ning

hey guys and gals,
the following is
in response to
contemplating the impact
of 'believing' in god
and all that that connotes,
has had on humanity.
this is a rant of rants
if ever i went on a rant.
so i figured i'd fly it your way
just to see what walls it sticks on.

and what a better place than here.

... goes like this ...

You Are Here (& this matter of god)

ancient chinese proverb say:
he who go to bed with itchy hiney
wake up with stinky fingers.

that was just my first response.
if i were to apply
some 'serious' thought to the matter …

this whole god thing is pretty perplexing.
i mean, people who believe in god
are generally ok by me.
until that is, they start killing
in the name of said invisible
all powerful entity.
then some of the motivating factors
may have to be brought under scrutiny.

if you find yourself in the act of war
because of limited resources,
and there's no diplomatic recourse …
after much exhaustive dialog,
the truth is revealed =
in order for our species to thrive
some will have to die.

and what better way to prove
who is more worth their salt
& most likely to survive
the next turn of events
in order to see
our ultimately sublime gestalt.
then to battle!

that said;
if you must equate an almighty being
into your reasons for slaughter,
then i have to ask you:
"if i am such a blight
upon this creation,
why don't the guy
you allegedly work for
do me in himself"?
you know … do it right.

does he have something to prove,
using you as his lightning rod?
is it a test you must pass
to gain entrance to his kingdom
in all it's imaginary glory?

look around you.
if you think about it
just a little bit
you'd realize
what we got
is pretty amazing.
even that there is
anything at all
to see.
let alone stand on.
not to mention
to be aware of the sensation that;
'you are here'.

there are so many flavors to savor of god.
in fact even if you don't subscribe
to any concept at all,
life can still be pretty enjoyable
and purpose full.

life is in abundance all about you.
of which you are only
one tiny little incy miniscule part
that has become so obsessed with
right from wrong
that you can not think straight.

and therefore,
for all you belief systems
you don't even get to appreciate
the wonder of it all.
where is the value in that?

holywar is just a monicker for murder,
in bad taste and a poor excuse
for not facing yourself
when you pass the responsibility
for your own actions
off onto your illustrious god.

to that end
i can see
god is an impedance.
and i for one
won't live my life in fear.
simply put,
the very light within you
is asking you to dance.
you are here.

that was just my second thought
and i certainly do not mean to offend
but i don't know that i got
a third thought in me.
as you can see
i'm running out of steam.
when i used the word 'end'.
it had a subliminal effect on me
and i lost focus.
my only hope is
a second wind of O2
to all cooperating neurons and synapses.
but that's another story.

i know you'll make the right decision eventually.
peace. MJM.

PS. no, i do not care to sniff your digits.

Very well said Michael.....I often wondered...If this life is supposed to be such hell compared to this heaven the religious speak of (the place they have a standing invitation),..why don't they just live and die at Gods will?...Why do they stockpile killing weapons? why do they want to stop the poor from getting health care? Why do they have operations to keep themselves living longer? Why do they think about killing to preserve their lives here on earth when they are going someplace much better...out of this supposed hell?....Why are they desperately hanging on to stay here with all the people they hate so much?......I believe they are doubters...I believe in the pits of their souls they don't believe...Otherwise they would go to the other side without a fight.....naturally by Gods will....without killing. The very religious are the only ones who seem to want war...seems to me it should be the other way around.....What a confused world we live in.....
