Yes, I suppose 'human kind' was once my cosmic muffin.

@Fil Albuquerque,
I listen to the voice that doesn't speak.I look towards the image that cannot be seen. I worship whom cannot be known.

@Leadfoot,
I went to a car boot sale and a flea market today. Got quite a bit of stuff. One thing you see a lot at car boots are "profound" messages people put up because they're bloody stupid.

Vacuous **** like this.

Osibos' posts have sent he right back to bloody Somerset, 70 odd miles away.

I’ve moved on from that cosmic muffin too, but I’m surprised to hear it from you.

@izzythepush,
I just got back from Mom's 96th birthday gathering.
So proud of her, she never used a bumper sticker.
But she will definitely give you her opinion.

Bad Dog - great read so far!

From the ‘unknowable God'.

Why and how would anyone follow, love or worship a God you could never know?
I’ve never understood that, but every Christian I’ve met agrees with you.

At what point does the child know the parent? For that matter the forefathers of his forefathers?

From the first 'touch'.
I don’t believe in ancestor worship, so knowing them is optional.

Thank you very much.

@Leadfoot,
My statement is about creation. I've got more about how evolution would have changed our understandings and made it harder for us to know the creator of the world. But, it seems irrelevant. Even a clock who has earned all the blessings of mankind is still not the clock maker, and seeing how its "senses" are different from our own. How would the clock know the clock maker?
There is unfortunately no way to reason except with intuition here.

By noticing how wondrously he is made.

What surprises you? That I moved on from it?

For a short time in the distant past, I came very close to worshiping Nehru jackets and sweaters. It just didn't seem quite right though, as, my near worship of all things suede was also somewhat intense.

Eventually, I returned to normal.

(or what passes for normal for me)

No insult meant, but I thought you were a humanist.
I apologize if I am in error.

@Leadfoot,
No error, i'm still somewhat of a humanist, in a disenchanted way. Man is just another species, in the end, and there are too many of us.
