159 – On God & Evil …

Whether male or female or both, we have always needed the concept of a deity to explain natural events unexplainable at the time … thunder, lightning, the motion of the sun and the moon across the sky, the creative and destructive power of Nature, the mystery of Life … and throughout our history this primal need has been used to assert a fallacy: That the world was created to be good and predetermined by an omnipotent and omniscient god.

But this fallacy came up against insurmountable challenges: The destructiveness and cruelty of Nature where life is re-generated by killing other life, and our tenacious possession of Choice to make decisions.

And so to overcome the contradiction of Cruelty, Death and Choice under the goodness and predetermination of an all-powerful and all-knowing god, the devil was created: It was the devil, not god, who brought the choice to be cruel and to kill into the world.

It is understandable that this idiocy could be believed under the ignorance of medieval times, but today!!!

As highly evolved as we are today, we are capable not only of discerning and reflecting upon the unending creativity and astonishing beauty of Nature, but also of witnessing, and oftentimes experiencing its horrendous destructiveness and cruelty. And so the duality of Nature is in plain view to us: Nature is both, Creative and Destructive … God and Evil! … not one or the other.

Just look at yourself: destroying other forms of life to create your own.
