← Missing God

ZenDruid's Avatar Jump to comment 2 by ZenDruid

Once you understand that the light of "god" shines in the eyes of happy young children, maybe you'll be more at ease.

For the record, the god I propose has more foresight and self-respect than Yahweh, as 'he' implanted the important principles into the fetus' neural wiring, both as instincts and as mirror neurons. 'He' has been with us all along, evolving with the species. I must note that this god is not of a specific gender, but both and neither [I couldn't resist the pseudo-mystical ineffable ambiguity here...]. I would render this god concept as more of a subset of 'racial memory' which serves to identify the potential, and limitations, of the species. In that vein, can we imagine that dogs and cats may recognize some type of archetype of their own species?
