William Blake on divinely and poetically inspired friendship.
All this buzz about Creationists, Dawkins, Intelligent Design, Darwin – what is it all about?
After posting the last two days, somehow more serious, entries on religion, today a humorous view on those matters. Mr. Deity. Let me introduce them with their first episode.
With regard to theistic religions the question is, whether there is an absolute good, almighty, and all-knowing God when there is the evil, physical as well as moral maladies. The intellectual defence of this God in face of physical and moral maladies are the different forms of what is called theodicy. However, in course of time, I got dissatisfied with and dismissive of this approach.
At an early passage of the New Testament it is written, that the Holy Ghost blows wherever he wills. (Believing like a child.) At another, later, that we should not be like blades of grass wobbling in the wind. (Believing like a child?) Thus, there the wind blows in faith and doubt.
