Defending our gods...
    #6355534 - 12/10/06 10:00 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

God - the most powerful entity in the known universe, is easily insulted and needs the protection and defense of beings(us)with 10^-10,000 of his power.

If "god" is omnipotent then why would it need your defense? Either your beliefs for it are steadfast, in which case you need not defend them, or you are doubtful and insecure of your beliefs which causes you to feel the need to defend them. Evaluate your belief in "god" before defending it.

:grin: Indeed! In fact we are the wrath of God.  :rofl2:

If this was not so this forum would most likely cease to exist. God can take many forms and most belief systems are sacrosanct to the believers.

Yes, I recently came across this metaphore in Dune:"fused into the sandtrout skin Leto's physical development ended as a pre-pubescent child, but the concentrations of spice allowed his sandtrout-body to develop.

But that life in all it's glory
Counts mycelium to be on it's side.

I think that's just 'Spin'. I think all the metaphores and allegories are 'Spin'
