@Krumple,
Hi Krumple!

Don't know if I have this linking of things sorted yet, but here goes -

5 You? Me? or All of Us?
Forums: Writing, Poetry, Original Writing, Psychology, Ethics

See if that works.

@Krumple,
Hi Again!

Better still - Here it is.

Sheep

This flock, so naive. How is it they flourish?
They've long traded their hearts and their souls
For Desire, and Greed, and Material goals
They inhibit their feelings, are restrained in their thoughts
Trapped... in their day-in, day-out routines
Only free
In their dreams

Designing their lives and ideals
On the basis and style of the social regime
Concealed beneath their shrouds of projected images
Acquired from those they admire and respect
They hide in their technology, and yearn for immortality
Instead of just living for Fun

Indoctrinated by religion and culture from birth
Herded, like sheep, unaware of their worth
Forgotten... The beauty, of Nature and Trust
Forgotten... Of Love, replaced Her with Lust

They adhere to their Gods, in times of unrest
Ignorant of their hypocritical faith
For, was it not those very same Gods, that they call out to
That caused their miseries
In the first bloody place?

Gone! Has the balance, our ancestors shared
In its place groweth Chaos, War and Despair
On the brink of extinction, with eyes still wide shut
They indulge, in their passion of worth
For them, it will surely feel worse

The answers to questions that haunt them to death
Are plain to see and hear
But they cannot see and cannot hear
For they are content
Are they not?

Cursing, of neighbours, and putting up shelves
Planning their evenings, by what's on TV
Caught-up in themselves
Afraid to be free, Only...Enough!...
Just live, and let live
And just say what you see

This is for you too, Homomorph!

@Homomorph,
Why do you ask this question, as though God is somewhere outside ourselves. ?

Don't ye know ye are Gods?

We are godlings, ever learning. Seems as though most people don't know what they are

@mark noble,
It's good, the last two paragraphs might be a bit too much and they lose the essence a little but the initial five are well written and get the point across very good.

The problem is you can get a completely different answer from a theist who will probably claim just the opposite to what you have said here. So which is correct then? I mean it comes down to your opinion or their opinion, but I have my own opinion. The reason it can not be determined is because it is neither. There is no god, there is just our imagination which loves to invent and create things that don't exist.

I worship the flying pink elephant, not because it doesn't exist, but because it teaches that the imagination is the invention of all things unreal.

If I could be God, I'd send to Hell anyone who would ask such questions.

Well you would be a god that I wouldn't care for or worship or respect if that were the case.

Could I produce dopamine to create limitless amounts of happiness? Does dopamine affect me at all? ARRGH


Actually, its serotonin you are referring to, not dopamine.

But back OT:

If I were God I would not DO I would simply BE.
And because I already AM, what does that make me?
