We’re all the same

I can empathize with creationists.
It must be infuriating
when evolutionist heathens
throw ideologies in your face,
maddening to the point
where you want to crap in your own hand
& hurl it right back.

But you repress that urge
because you’re more evolved than that.
You’re no barbaric monkey.

Yet deep down,
you still feel that base, sinister, fecal flinging instinct,
on some primitive level
almost as if you had a common ancestor or something…

  1. I have often thought that the doctrine of creation should indeed be reconciled to Darwin’s theory because it were a piece of pride (Lucifer’s sin) on man’s part to believe otherwise. For the sake of metaphorical expression, however, let me say, that I believe we are partly animal and partly god.

  2. It’s the same dynamic that arose when scientists attacked Church doctrine: the earth orbits the sun, not the other way around. We read about it as if they got over it quickly, but they fought it tooth and nail for years. You can ignore and attack reality for a long, long time. We have POWERFUL rationalization engines between our ears…

  3. Meant to respond to this many eons ago…
    I love your writing even though when it comes to your “anti-religious” posts, I have wanted to respond more than once. I’m a very spiritual person, raised in an organized denomination of the Christian religion. Although I appreciate ceremony, tradition, gatherings of people who truly believe they are part of something bigger with purpose, I’m not much on that anymore. I’m spiritual more than anything else, believing in a Higher Power and also believing that if that Higher Power is more powerful than any human (or at least, just me), then doesn’t it makes possible sense that that Higher Power could also have created our existence through evolution? And isn’t it even more possible that that Higher Power could have created all of this in the span of seven days? And given how our time is not quite the same as time throughout the universe(s), could it make possible sense that the seven days if actually far longer than our human seven days?

    I respect others’ religious beliefs except those radicalized versions and violence committed in the name of any god, no matter the religion with the exception of religious freedom. I still do not think violence is the answer, however, but sometimes, looking at history, it is unfortunately necessary to fight, even if it’s involves sacrifice.

    I wonder, though, as I’ve read your posts, who it is, even if many, who have completely offended you to the point where, with all due respect and in my humble opinion, you write condemning, generalized phrases. Not all religious people are representative of all others who also follow the same religion. If religious people, as a gross misinterpretation and/or conviction of their religion, spew hate, judgement, or violence, on those who are different than them or will not adopt their beliefs, I simply ignore them or take action in my own way to help others who are the victims of the others’ actions and rhetoric.


  4. I dont think I respect other religious beliefs any more, or see the best in people as I was conditioned to do. It’s rarely reciprocated. I’ve discovered recently that even commenting positively feels like an egotistical exercise. Just read and keep my thoughts to myself… (she says undermining her own point).
