Yesterday I listened to a discussion about God. Pondering on some of the things I heard I couldn’t help but wonder how at times the god or gods we create are far less moral than we who create them. It’s as if once we label a particular conception, or design, or pattern of thought with the word “God” it suddenly has this arbitrary right to act contrary to even the most decent of human ethics. Sadly, when this kind of “godly” action is questioned the concept is dressed up in a further label, that of being all powerful and having the right to do whatever it wishes.
I must say that when this point is reached in this kind of discussion, as it inevitably always is, my mind begins to wonder down another road. 🙂
