I don't believe in Gods...not the usual kinds. I see no need to have every question answered, especially not by the twaddle that passes for a "god's" words. I see silly Man behind the curtain, operating the levers and whistles and explosions up on the screen.
If I wanted a god, he or she sure as hell wouldn't be any of the versions concocted for us by people who were afraid to wash.
In search of "meaning" as an Assyrian, certainly...but no gods...please. Aren't enough children being ripped apart and molested too for a god somewhere?
You guys think if the scalpel was once sharp, once answered a purpose, that two thousands years later when it is dull and rusted, no longer suited to the more refined results we might achieve if we weren't still hacking away with that old, broken, microbe infested and disease ridden old antique, something that has become so clearly an instrument of torture and not salvation...then let's stick to hoary old tradition and go right on butchering each other willy nilly...cause imagine a world WITHOUT that device. I would LOVE to live in that sort of world.
