Hymn To the Creator

The way my day
Is going
I just know
The next thing
That'll happen --

I'll stumble across
Some damn conclusive proof

That this messed up world
Really was created by a
Petty
Codependent
Deity

Who gets pissed off

When He's not
Worshipped.

In regards to this poem...did god really create man in his own image? What a concept of god.

I quite agree!

Jiddu Krishnamurti used to say, "A petty mind can conceive only of a petty god." There are many bits of evidence that suggest the various deities are human creations, but I think one of the more telling bits is that the creators of many of those deities could not think of a god without also thinking that god wanted to be worshipped. What a petty, all-too-human thing for a god to want!

Does what I've just said make any sense to you, or should I fetch myself more coffee and re-think it some?
