Your god is too small


I have taken leave from braining at the moment. So it is just light interesting stuff we will be talking about. First I need to see an orthopaedic. My butt hurts when I run and I used Dr Google where I learned there is such a syndrome. I will tell you how it goes.

There has been a fellow commenting here recently encouraging us to find his dead god or else we will lose everything when we die. Then it occurred to me that the Abrahamic gods are too small (there is a book by the same title as this post btw).

Imagine you are the Head honcho of a village, the only village that is known by everyone and you had the chance to dictate laws, why da soup would you start by saying I am the only honcho? Why are you so insecure? In my village we say the moment you have to declare your kingship, legitimacy is a problem. And so it is with this god.

And this is why I think Nietzsche was right in his observation that the other gods laughed themselves to death when one of them declared she alone is god.

Talking of he she, I am confused. Are there vegans who eat meat? Or teetotaler who drinks alcohol?

Ni hayo machache tu kwa sasa. Tuonane tena baadaye.

    There are plenty of shopping marts for gods. You can probably get a refund if one doesn’t work out for you. Keep your receipt!

    Maka: If you feel deep down inside that you are really a vegan, but you also love the taste of steak, what you feel is the only thing that matters. And woe unto anyone who questions your self definition. Feelz are what matters!

    I wonder if there are multiple types of vegans, each oppressed by the cis carnivores in their own way?

    Ach! The horrific BRITISH spelling is infesting your comments section, Maka. Enforce some hygiene, please! “humor” vs. “humour”

    Well, in answer to your question, I’m sure there are some vegans who consume meat, just as there are some carnivores who eat fruit. Have a great weekend and best wishes for your appointment! ๐Ÿ™‚ Naked hugs!

    Probably them damn butt excercises. Lay off of the butt excercises for 2 weeks, take an aspirin, and I’ll send you the bill ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Seriously though, I hope it is something mundane and easliy remedied.

    …find the dead god or we lose everything when we die? Sounds like what happens any damn way to me. It is unfortunate, but the cycle of life and all of that. People sure seem desperate to dodge the end any way possible. Sucking up to an imaginary friend, and paying good money to the imaginary friends mortal intermediaries is just ridiculous.

    You’re just as dead either way bub. One simple perspective, leaves you the option of keeping your dignity, your hard earned money, and your integrity. The other option is the longest running scam in human history. I prefer the former.

      I have not been doing those butt exercises. I prefer my exercises outdoors. I saw a physiotherapist and he says I should be well in a few days.

      Heaven is waiting my friend and all you need is to accept Allah as Jeff would say.

  7. God commands us not to worship anything but Him, not because we threaten His legitimacy, but because we wonโ€™t be allowed in His world if we donโ€™t submit to His rule. In your village, what would happen if someone had no respect for the head honcho?
