You ever wonder why you can’t even mention the word God in some places, like, oh, schools? I mean, it’s a little word. Ain’t it? What’s to be ascared of?
Well, some times you can mention God in school. But you can’t say anything nice, or good, about God. You gotta talk about God as if He’s dead, or dopey, or downright mean. Otherwise you’re not smart, or you’re silly or numb as a hedge fence as the saying goes. Unless you’re a theologian or some other kind of professionally smart guy, like a physicist or biologist. Then you can mention God and talk about him as if , well, as if He was a footnote.
It’s because, I guess, if you mention God, you gotta start thinking about good and evil somewhere along the line. And that leads you to thinking about such things as what is or isn’t good and evil, who’s responsible for it and how to make things better or stop them from getting worse. The folks who think about these things today often don’t want to think that we can’t do all of that ourselves…if we even admit that some things may be good and other things, well, not bad, really, but not yet, umm, good for everyone, everywhere. I mean hunger’s not good for everyone, unless you’re dieting, or unless you’re running a shipping line that’s got a big bucks contract to deliver surplus food from a rich country to a poor one. And sex is always good, everywhere, all the time, with anyone. And science is good, because what it don’t know it will soon find out and, well, make sense out of all of this.
See what I mean?
Here’s an advertisement from Macedonia that mentions God and good and evil. It’s really stupid. Watch it and see. By no means is this rocket science, and you gotta wonder why folks bother with it.
