I saw it today (opening day): God's Review
Good! Great, actually.
He doesn't think it's a good thing for people to believe they're God...
He asks What would make someone do that...
and stresses Humility.
But he does think we should Create, like God did.
He likes artists. And that's what this blog is. So at least that's okay.
So. In a nutshell, here's why I think Being God is Good, and
Why (i think) I am God.
Agnosticism/Atheism, plus Buddhism, plus Bible, plus Artistry
I don't believe in some ethereal mystical creator of the universe, out in space somewhere...
(outside of time?) (who existed before the universe, and will exist always).
every individual is their own universe, as i see it.
maybe the actual universe, though, was generated by intelligence; i mean, who knows?
but what are the odds that that entity is still around, and answering everybody's prayers?
it seems to me God is unknown or unknowable (the agnostic positiion)
(and theodicy is a convincing argument against God being all-powerful)
unless you define Him as Reality itself, or Love, or Truth
(or the asshole in your head, like DAE..."distant, angry, estranged")
You can always believe The Universe will answer your prayers or bend to your will (!)
evil exists, unless you go amoral, and it's all good. Law exists. So crime exists.
god allows all to ow. pain is necessary for healing. torture, though...
the sick and twisted, the idea of hell, the "final solution," crime and war and poverty and suffering and hunger and indifference and a culture of waste and greed and blood money and cynicism and corruption and lying and ecological catastrophe and sexual predation and spite, malice, revenge..
this was a powerful movie! psy war against these things may well be warranted!
anyway, I was an agnostic after taking a Theology class as a freshman in college.
Then, Buddhism said everyone is basically Good, which I like.
Then, the Bible said Only God is good.
put one and one together, and you get Everyone is God (I am God, too).
and I like to write, so I made this blog. Art!
Plus, LRH made scientology, his own religion.
And I researched Adidam, which makes Reality itself God, which seems to right to me.
God is happiness hypnosis, and I want to make me/others/all well and good.
And, I've kept at it, because it gives my life meaning, and I might even emerge sane, in time.
charity, mercy, compassion, forgiveness, love, hope, a sense of humor!!
i haven't been to Mass in awhile, so this was a good way to get some current Catholicity in me.
the movie was less about the Pope's life than his vision-
The Holy See should have a vision, after all (he wears glasses, lol)
130 species are going extinct every day.
One Billion people are going hungry, too.
We (all of us are responsible) are polluting the earth.
the dump scene was shocking. and the polluted water.
Maybe I should get off my high horse, my philosophizing, my (making a religion?),
and do something else to meet the Great Need.
I was a Third World Studies major at UCDavis (international relations).
I'm inspired to research St. Francis. I am from SF, after all.
Jesuit is pronounced Jess-ooh, it. (being god? information tech?)
A stimulating movie.
Should we be like Muslims, and submit (islam means submission)?
Am I on the wrong track? Is humility preferable to self-apotheosis? leave a comment!
we should all choose the religion that most pleases God!
(make yourself happy by making God happy, doing the right thing, being Good (God!). right?)
is this Satanism? So what if it is! God is all-knowing. And that's a good thing!
But Hell is a bad thing. I don't want to know hell.
Maybe I'll go to Mass this Sunday. Good day, sunshine.
Forgive means forget! My name (jesse) means God makes forget.
So that was enlightening. To share Ra!
