So, why did God create weed, man?
    #4448777 - 07/25/05 12:30 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've heard that the brain has specific receptors for THC in the brain. If so I see that as some pretty good evidence that man was meant so smoke refer. I don't understand why so many people stigmatize this drug as trashy when it quite obviously was meant to be used by humans. I wonder what God's reasoning for making this drug specificly the way that it is. I wonder ....um, fuck I forgot what I was going to say.

hay hay hay hay, smoke weed every day.

First off, I am going to question your entire basis on the implication that some force known as "God" "created" marijuana. Secondly, it is obvious, through your logic, then, that rattlesnake poison was "created" by "God" specifically for humans to use. By your logic, cyanide was "created" by "God" for us to use, since our body is capable of receiving it. I guess radiation is just God's gift to us, eh?

Out of the billions of different molecule arrangments that our brain and body are capable of associating with, why single out one and apply some special meaning, in such a manner?  Perhaps we should all go out and drink some bottles of bleach, since it is composed of chemicals that react with our body. Hey, its what "God" wanted! :lol:

Let's look at the weed high for what it is...another experience.

God isn't biased among experiences, in my opinion.

Proverbs 31:

4 "It is not for kings, O Lemuel?
      not for kings to drink wine,
      not for rulers to crave beer,

    5 lest they drink and forget what the law decrees,
      and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.

    6 Give beer to those who are perishing,
      wine to those who are in anguish;

    7 let them drink and forget their poverty
      and remember their misery no more.

you heard him, God says "buy booze for the homeless." lol :lol:

Matthew 11:

    16"To what can I compare this generation? They are like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling out to others:
    17" 'We played the flute for you,
      and you did not dance;
  we sang a dirge
      and you did not mourn.' 18For John the baptist often goes without eating, and has never touched a drop of wine his whole life, and they say, 'He has a demon.' 19The Son of Man came eating his food and drinking his wine, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners." ' But wisdom is proved right by what results from it."


as you can see, to the God of christianity, all things are good, it's the heart of the action that makes it "good" or "evil", if i get drunk and beat my wife and kids, = not good, I can't think how cyanide can be used for Good at the moment, but that does'nt make it evil or wrong, it is what it is, neither good or evil untill you form your own oppinion of it..

Eating foods naturally containing cyanide compounds, such as tapioca (made from cassava roots), lima beans, and almonds. However, the portions of these plants that are eaten in the United States contain relatively low amounts of cyanide.

Just some yummy good uses of cyanide for ya.  :smile:

Right, but bleach doesn't have a positive effect on the body, weed does.  So if there is a God that created everything and has a devine purpose for all things and all life which I think he does, then He made this plant with a positive, specific purpose.  So why single out this chemical reaction and give it some special meaning?  Well, because marijuana in the brain is special, and it does have meaning.

THC may 'monopolize' certain receptor sites, preventing the use of other less dominating substances. There is no specific neurochemical configuration for Delta-9-THC or any of numerous structurally similar cannabis compounds.

Hey, Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica are highly over-rated (no pun intended). Why be so hung-up on chronic self-medication? Medicine is for illness, what's the problem in the first place?

If we made paper from hemp, loggers wouldn't have to cut down trees for paper pulp. More clothing and other woven products can be made with the fibers. The oil has certain useful properties, and one used to be able to buy hemp seeds in pet store because it made birds sing. So you see, it's not just about sealing one's brain cells in amber and losing memory to the point of pre-senile dementia.

If marijana is medecine then what is the purpose of the psychoactive um, shit in there? Yes, marijuana has medicual uses, but I don't think God soley intended it for a cancer drug, he wanted us to party with it and get blazed. Whats so wrong with thinking that God just wants us to be comfortable in our own skin, so he gave us weed to take help take the edge off.

Don't be so arrogant as to think that God made everything for us humans. We are but tiny, insignificant specks in a universe of unimaginable size.

I don't think humans are insignificant specks to God.

I think God knows and loves us all, but maybe thats just me being arrogant....

Cannabinoids exist already within your brain. THC molecules insert themselves into your cannibinoid receptors like tetris blocks overloading these sites causing interesting effects. The fact that it is psychoactive happens to be pure coincidence.

Many animals are able to get stoned, too.

Bleach isnt psychoactive... it is toxic though and you can overdose on it. You can also overdose on water.

And, by the same reasoning, God created everything and specifically created the chemical compounds that were later arranged into the product known as bleach with a negative, malevolent purpose, so that humans would drink it and die.  :shocked: :evil:

You have singled out simply one out of a thousand possible uses of a single plant that we ourselves discovered, and declared, therefore, that God purposely placed that there for that single use by us. The fact that people have, in fact, drank bleach and either died, or severely destroyed their digestive system by doing so implies that it was intentional of God, if we are to be critical thinkers. You can't have it only one way - either God specifically created and placed everything for every possible use by us, doing so out of every intention, or he placed absolutely nothing.

If by special, you mean something that should be elevated over other phenomenon, than you are wrong. Millions of chemicals interact with our body's chemistry to produce different effects. Trillions and trillions of different variables within this environment we exist in interact to produce change. Our world and our universe is an extremely complex system, and it arose as such as a result of simple interaction between parts. Things evolve and change and develop, complexity continues to rise. Whether or not you are going to create for yourself an unsubstansiated story to explain this on top of an already observable, understandable explanation is your own choice, but I prefer to stick to what's necessary. :grin:

Why don't we all presume to know the Divine Mind? And while we're at it, let's continue to imagine that it's all about us, or in your case, it's all about you being intoxicated. The Eternal Idea which became Humankind, in 'the image and likeness' of GOD, is here for the purpose of becoming stoned and stupid, is that what you're saying?

Where did you get the idea that smoking anything is 'good for the body,' let alone for the mind? Hey, I don't care if people use hemp (as long as their intoxicated behavior doesn't endanger ME), but don't try to make a case for it being good for people, and don't presume that it is brings people closer to GOD like a sacrament (that is not my experience of stoned people), or worse, that GOD wants people to be stoners. That sounds like a lot of rationalization and projection of one's own wishes onto GOD. Without the guidance of a religious tradition to check against one's own notions about GOD, GOD becomes the excuse for all kinds of terrible behaviors form Nazism to terrorism.
