In my imagination, maybe a huge "human being", the real God, created the universe by a big bang in his lab, created the present human being by evolution. And now, the god is examining th ...
Sort of like fleas on a ............
Here is a little ditty I wrote many years ago - sort of reflecting on the way hun\mans see themselves as some apex of the mountain of gods creation...... I called it "Mobile Manure" .....
Why are we here?
What is our purpose?
Were we really “created” or simply an accident of chemistry, is there a “God” or are there indeed many “Gods”????
Human-kind has pondered and even fought wars over these questions. Court cases have taken the question of creation and evolution from fantasy to ridiculous. Science and religion have been at loggerheads since the church lost control of science and science distanced itself from the black magic of the church.
The “Inquisition” saw opponents to the church side of the equation put to death in the most horrific ways imaginable, but science has prevailed and is now a clear leader in the “theories” race.
Neither side has been able to advance a solid proof of our coming into existence. We are born, we live and we die. Some content in the belief that they have a soul/spirit that continues to live on in some Valhalla, others die in the torment of not knowing the answer.
Well it is time to take heart my fellow Earthlings, for there is now one come among you to show you the light, to light your way to full understanding so that you may face the future with dignity.
We have indeed a noble purpose in being here.
Yes we were created.
Not in the sense that an omnipotent “God” slapped together two hands full of clay and breathed life into it, but in the creation of natural necessity, for, as this planet formed, it became a suitable biosphere for plants, (trees, grasses, flowers – all of Gods favorite things).
God decided that he would like the planet to look as nice as possible and proceeded to plant his favorites, but it soon became obvious that the quality of the soil on the planet was not so good and many of Gods favorites suffered from a lack of nutrition.
God spoke to the plants, and, as he had given them a massive intellect and small egos, asked them what they needed.
They all replied that all they needed a never ending supply of nutrition, and out of his toy box God brought forth some animals which he placed on the planet to serve the needs of the plants.
This worked very well, so well indeed that the plants no longer needed to roam the planet in search of food, they simply took root and let their food supply come to them.
They used their superior intellect to get the animals to take over the tiresome business of reproduction for them, providing a tasty meal in exchange for transportation of their genetic material.
Among the animals that God scattered onto the planet to service his most loved creation, was humanity.
An animal that provided a great service to the flora. Being nomads they traveled great distances, and as they traveled they consumed copious quantities of fruit and they crapped everywhere, spreading seeds far a wide.
When they died they dissolved into many nutrients, they reproduced well and served God well in their designed purpose
Humans developed an “artificial” intelligence. They thought that because they could talk and use tools, that they were indeed Gods favorites.
They wrote a new history for the planet and cast themselves in the role of Gods favorite, some even thought they were the chosen ones among this pile of human rabble, the “top of the heap”, but they never took the time to look around them.
They literally could not see the trees for the forest. They did not realise how dependent they were on the trees.
They slaughtered the trees by the millions, they came into conflict with each other, fighting over the dominion and domain of God.
They reduced the planet to a barren wasteland.
And when they could no longer survive in the atmosphere of pollution that they had created, they knew then their true destiny – they were in fact simply mobile manure – their destiny was to provide the nutrients that the truly beautiful and intelligent trees needed.
It came to pass that the last animals dissolved into the soil of the planet. All was quiet and god was sad.
God wept tears of rain and lo, small green shoots poked out of the soil of the desert landscape.
The trees in their last days had used their superior intelligence to set seeds, gone were the tormentors, and the soil was truly rich with nutrients, the mobile manure had indeed fulfilled its destiny.
The trees and flowers made the planet beautiful once more and God was happy, never again would he allow such a mistake.
Here endeth the lesson.
