God Sucks...
    #896614 - 09/21/02 12:19 AM (21 years, 8 months ago)

hehehe
The word "GOD" seems to be a pretty shitty word for most people here...

Everyone has a slightly different definition. I think we should quit using that word and come up with new words to describe (succinctly) all the different concepts of "divine being(s)".

How about it?
It would clear up alot of the BS fighting...
"God doesn't exist."
"Does soooo. God, according to your definition, might not exist... but my "god" does."

See what I mean?
It's just an idea.

Great post Sclorch! I feel very uncomfortable using the word 'God.' There is just too much attached to it.  :smirk:

Lots of people interpret the word 'Babel,' as in the Biblical 'Tower of Babel,' as pronounced 'babble,' because everyone at that scene fled, speaking different languages. The myth depicts Mankind's vain and futile attempt to reach God physically, from the ground up. On the horizontal plane - the interpersonal plane - there was some amount of harmony, but this presumption on Man's part was responded to by God with chaos and confusion.

AS IF things at this forum are not confused enough, here comes the 'herald of anarchy' who wants even more profound darkness to cause even more people to stumble and fall. How about if people qualify the generic word God with the tradition that they are referring to? So, instead of renaming a tree "boojum,'' like Alan Watts did in 'The Way of Zen,' to make a point, one says, 'the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,' or the God of Muhammed. OR...to digress to philosophy, one could refer to 'Ultimate Reality,' which does not carry any of the anthropomorphic associations that causes such distress to those Shroomerites who are stuck inside of their early childhood Sunday school stories, and can't get out.

Or...have you really been drinking too much and this suggestion is just psychepuke?

Actually, I think they're just ignoring your point and continuing their conversation.

Making up your own new word is probably the best way to come up with a word without unwanted baggage. I think that will work better than trying to adapt an existing word.

the idea is, if your idea doesn't fit standard definitions, to make up a word for your personal "divine whatever" and to specifically define it. this will not cause confusion. it will reduce it
