Everything And Nothing

big-bang

And then there was

Something

 

It wasn’t

Good

It wasn’t

Bad

It just

Was

 

The something

Expanded

More things began to

Fill

Its growing

Void

 

Some things

In the void

Were

Alive

They were not

Good

They were not

Bad

They just

Were

 

Then

He

Came,

And

Everything

Was, suddenly,

All about

Him

 

But,

Just as

Suddenly as

He

Came,

He was

Gone

 

Nothing

About the

Something,

Still there

Without

Him,

Had changed

 

It still wasn’t

Good

It still wasn’t

Bad

It still

Just

Was

 

Everything

That was truly

His,

While

He

Was,

He wasted

By trying

To make

Everything

That was

His

 

Truth is,

Nothing

Was ever

His

But

Him

  1. You really do have a gift with these.

  2. I second what Mike and Mak said.

    • $Amen$ Blessed art those who believe everything is about them.

    • That Yahweh was some boob deprived dude.

    • The “he” I refer to in this isn’t god. It is man. All man has is himself. That is everything. Without it, there is nothing.

    • “The “he” I refer to in this isn’t god. It is man. All man has is himself. That is everything. Without it, there is nothing.”

      You say that as thought there’s a distinction between the character, Yahweh, and man. 😉

    • Of course there isn’t. None at all. All religion is us. By us. About us. And usually, the “us” consists of men only. Men make it up to justify their twisted sick minds so that they can impose their bullshit on to women and children. We’ll all be gone one day. All our time here will have been spent on stupid shit like gods rather than figuring out how to extend our stay in a universe that doesn’t care in the least about us. We are nothing to it but we are everything to ourselves. Soon, there’ll be no selves left and no one left to miss us.

    • So true, and we must include men too. While the god of the bible rewarded men who would go to war for for him, the spoils of war, like kidnapping, then fucking girls and turning them into domestic slaves, as well as splitting the plunder, men also suffered and died at the hands of the gods invented by men.

      Jeff, we should be way past this primitive mindset, fully aware of the harm it causes, and it does concern me that so many keep holding on to these myths — which will most likely be the demise of our species.

    • These myths fuel the Republicans who now run our country. Sick. Very sick, and very scary.

    • Oh yes. If you want instructions on how to effectively break down a society and control the masses — you’ll find it in the bible. Hitler knew the bible like the back of his hand. “Gott Mit Uns”

    • Had that put on the belt buckles of all his soldiers I’ve read. So much for the bullshit theist argument that Hitler was a dick because he was an atheist.

    • Yep.

      “Hitler’s anti-Semitism grew out of his Christian education. The Christians blamed the Jews for the killing of Jesus. Jewish hatred did not actually spring from Hitler, it came from the preaching of Catholic priests and Protestant ministers throughout Germany for hundreds of years. The Protestant leader, Martin Luther, himself, held a livid hatred for Jews and their Jewish religion. In his book, “On the Jews and their Lies,” Luther set the standard for Jewish hatred in Protestant Germany up until World War 2. Hitler expressed a great admiration for Martin Luther constantly quoting his works and beliefs.

      1)The Nazi regime began to control schools insisting that Christianity was taught.

      2)The Nazi regime included anti-Semitic Christian writings in textbooks and they were not removed from Christian doctrines until 1961.

      3)The Nazi regime forced the German soldiers to wear religious symbols such as the swastika and they placed religious sayings on military gear. An example here is this German army belt buckle (I believe my Opa had one) which reads “Gott Mit Uns” (“God With Us”)

      4) The German troops were often forced to get sprinkled with holy water and listen to a sermon by a Catholic priest before going out on a maneuver.

    • Ahhhh! Makes ya feel all warm and bubbly inside, doesn’t it? Martin Luther was a true piece of work. He hated peasants as much as Jews. Sick shit, but that same shit now infests the conservatives in Britain and America. The UKIP in Britain is just as twisted and sick as the Republicans are here.

    • Indeed, Jeff, indeed.

    • “My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter.

      In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison.

      To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross.

      As a Christian I have no duty to allow my self to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.”

      Adolph Hitler in a speech on 12 April 1922 (Norman H. Baynes, ed. The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939, Vol. 1 of 2, pp. 19-20, Oxford University Press, 1942)

    • I’ve read some of these speeches before. Sick. Truly sick. Oh Jesus! Thank you for filling the hearts of guys like Martin Luther and Adolph with so much of your love! $Amen$ Oh, I’ve been perusing another sick piece of hateful shit called, “The Pink Swastika.” Scott Lively, who “researched” and wrote it believes all head Nazis were gay. That’s why they were evil. Oh, all serial killers are gay too, he says. That’s why they’re evil. And the gays are wrong to say Hitler killed a lot of them during the war. He hates them for saying that. Fucking idiots. True idiots in this world. Of course, Lively is Christian. What the fuck else would he be, eh?

    • OMG — Scott Lively — the former state director of the California branch of the American Family Association. I’ve been following his global hate ministry for several years now. He is responsible for this:

      “Fanned by Western evangelicals (i.e., Scott Lively), homophobia has spread across the African continent voraciously in recent years, including Uganda, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the point that the European Union’s highest court last week ruled that fear of imprisonment [and death] for homosexuality in African countries is grounds for asylum in the EU.”

    • OMG! He’s even more horrible than I thought, and I REALLY thought he was horrible! Read over some of “The Pink Swastika.” It’s online. What crazy hateful shit. My feeling is, guys like Lively secretly want a deep ass-fuckin’. They dream of it but hate themselves for it, so they create reasons to spew their hate outward onto those they fear to be but want to be at the same time. I gotta write me a cannibal post on this asshole!

    • Another good link. I’ll be perusing through those readings later. What a dangerous hateful shit this guy is.

    • It was back in 2010 that I first learned about SL. Here’s the first article where I learned about him.

      http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/2010/01/06/19081

      I used to work for the American Family Association, where Scott was groomed. This was back when I was a Christian. I had NO idea what I was getting myself into.

      I plunged into the deepest depression and went on antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds the one and only time of my life. I’ve been through a lot of shit in my life, but what I experienced while working there tipped the scale. I rarely use this word — but they are evil.

    • Brian Fischer is their leader, is he not? What a deceitfully clever name they have for themselves: “the American Family Association.” Damn. Sounds like Aunt Bee and Andy started it. Evil fuckers. Evil is the right word as evil comes from people who do bad hateful things, like these assholes.

    • Good Jeebus! These people are bat-shit EVIL!!!

    • What a total shit-heel! Man, I AM STEAMIN’ angry right now!

    • I used to work for that fucker.

    • How did you get away from that? Jeebus, what an asshole!

    • I was “laid off” with a 9 weeks severance package. I knew more than they wanted me too, and I could have sued their asses for what they did to my mental well being. It wasn’t the reason why I went through a deconversion, but it was the beginning of my understanding about just how diabolical and dysfunctional evangelical Christianity really is.

    • Glad you made it out. It’s a lot nicer here with us practitioners of the Light Side of The Force.

    • Indeed, my friend, indeed.

  3. Fine words – a fine take on what became a hideous legend.

  4. This is great.
    He came and told the universe is for and about him. Soon he will be no more
