While everything is taken place in the world right now, how many of you have starting talking to God, and Pray that you stay alive, and well?
Let me see...ZERO!
I felt no need to talk to a god when my daughter lost a pregnancy at 17 weeks. I felt no need to talk to a god when my brother got killed at work at the age of 43 (he would have turned 60 two days ago). I never felt the need to talk to a god when I found out my husband had been cheating on me for five years (and fathered a kid--or maybe two-- during that time). And, I feel no need to turn to a god during this. I will look toward reason, common sense and science.
The concept of praying to and asking for help from something that supposedly created you makes absolutely no sense. Why would a so called god put his own creation in peril in the first place or not Alleviate it’s suffering .These are the traits of a sadist and a psychopath. But this is the god invented by man as depicted in the Epicurean paradox which assumes human and divine definitions of evil are the same .
I started talking to my TV. Wait, are you saying my TV is a god? Makes sense. Knows everything, always watching me. If one dies, it comes back, though sometimes in a different form. It works in mysterious ways (the remote doesn't always work, and it can change its own channels). Sometimes, I yell (a prayer) to the TV to let things go my way for my sports teams and it makes it happen. Sometimes, I yell (a prayer) to the TV to let things go my way for my sports teams and it makes it happen. Hell, even kids know this inherently. Leave a child in front of a TV, they will get on the ground and just listen to its words as long as you let them. I suppose that is a form of worship.
Dude, we gotta get the good word out, TVs are gods! Praise be unto the TV gods.
No gods yet BUT I have started talking to my lamp. I was getting a tad lonely there for a while in my self-imposed isolation but then I noticed how attractive and steadfast Lamp was. He's tall and slim, doesn't prattle on and is always there for me. I turn him on every night. Ahhh; he just lights up my day.
