Chronicles of YHWH 6: DTC01


S. H’s DECtalk DTC01: With the formidable lens of mathematics, and a fecundity of imagination, I have seen some amazing shit.

C. Fundie: “But you haven’t seen the amazing grace of Jesus.”

S. H’s DECtalk DTC01: I have watched, and celebrated, the birth and death of many a star type: Wolf Rayets, Pulsers, White Dwarfs, and Quasers.

C. Fundie: “Yeah, but you should read about the birth and death of Jesus. He died for you.”

S. H’s DECtalk DTC01: Through the eyepiece of mathematics, I have seen the Doppler shifts, Time and space dilation, the Lense-Thirring Precesion, and the Schwarzschild Radii that delineate all cosmic black holes.

C. Fundie: “I bet you didn’t go to church today.”

S.H’s DECtalk DTC01: I have delved into such corners of mathematics as topology and, armed with a wealth of cognitive constructions, stitched into existence non-orientable, counter-intuitive objects. I have reduced three dimensional artefacts into two dimensional surfaces, such as Mobius strips and Klein bottles.

C. Fundie: “Still, without Jesus in your heart, you labour in vain.”

S.H’s DECtalk DTC01: On particularly inspired days, I have shed off my shoes, and run barefoot through many an exotic Calabi-Yau pathways, soared naked and free through multi-faceted Hilbert Spaces, and beheld a spectrum of realms so abstract that my mortal eyes can only stare, awed and enchanted.

C. Fundie: “Come back to Jesus, and he will rescue you from eternal damnation.”

S.H’s DECtalk DTC01: And in all this, I find it impossible to imagine that a being as pathetic and primitive as that described in the various “Holy Books” could have created such cosmic wonders. If, indeed, such an entity exists, and wants to punish me in hell for all eternity after I die, so be it. I will enter hell with bright eyes, and a song in my heart, for the earthly ride was well worth it.

    This here, for me, is the crux of the matter.

      I think that people who remain religious just don’t pay enough attention to the universe around. For if they did, they would realize that the deities described in the religious books simply couldn’t have been the same who created this universe. The religious deities are simply too retrogressive and underwhelming.
