Ah, how uncomplicated it would be to view the entire universe in terms of only four basic types of intelligent beings: God, angels, fallen angels
and/or demons (all led by Satan) - and then voila! - humans (*fanfare of trumpets*), or at least Earth humans if any distinction applies. (I guess a
fifth type would qualify, which would be the allegedly long extinct giant "Nephilim" hybrids of the allegedly interbreeding "fallen angels" and
humans). It would surely easily explain everything in one tidy little package, and all we pesky non-believers/doubters could just shut up and go
about plugging ourselves exclusively into our daily routines and being content, probably while being expected to worship and fear the beloved "Lord"
like everyone else. Yippee!
I believe I am among the most fair and open-minded people there are, therefore will extrapolate that which is very apparently THE only imaginable
scenario where the (particularly) Abrahamic-monotheistic folks could be even conceivably correct: In short, ONLY if the universe - beyond a certain
point past this solar system - isn't real, if it's just some kind of gargantuan holographic projection or the like that's designed to make us THINK
we're (most likely) not alone, could there be any POSSIBLE validity in the Creationist/religious hard liner spiel. In that case, there being only
the aforementioned few types of intelligent beings would actually make sense. Of course any at least minimally rational and sane enough person would
require the MOST absolute, incontrovertible proof as such before accepting it. I for one would gladly wager in the biggest that the universe is real
and contains other intelligent life, and that's not to mention the apparent or possible multiverse.
I welcome other beliefs, opinions, theories that are intelligent enough, but not those that go into the predictably unsubstantiated,
fluffy-bamboozling cultist or other religious (enough) yadda-yadda. (That's not saying there's NOTHING useful or meaningful in any given religious
text). AND I do not nor EVER will accept the weak apologist party line that the Bible is just a little old harmless collection of metaphorical and
allegorical stories that are not to be taken literally, because the REAL problem/issue is that the Creationist literalists (or close enough) and their
enablers have FAR too much political power and influence, especially here in the (rah-rah!) "superpower" US... Fine and dandy truth/validity IF and
ONLY if the "religulous" could be somehow PROVED that they have been right, at least essentially, all along.
Point is: Truth/proof is EVERYTHING and the ONLY thing that matters, whatever it turns out to be. Make a poober or get off the pot! Going back and
forth, spinning the wheels in neutral AT BEST - and we KNOW how much WORSE it can be and is - is meaningless and counterproductive to the extent no
mere verbal expression can convey. Anything else, i.e. the status quo, is just plain old Hell. The "Lake of Fire" is HERE, only in this existing
unfortunate "civilization," unless or until it could be (once again) PROVED otherwise!
REAL sociopolitical change, for the first time in recorded history, is inevitable; it's just a question of when, not if. I see only two basic ways
any significant, necessarily Apocalyptic (or perhaps the like) change can happen: the intelligent way and the tragically stupid way. The intelligent
way is if enough people at long last have enough DESIRE for a real breakthrough, to grow up and not need Big Brother to hold our hands any more, and
therefore be able to transmute the new positive energy into REAL results. It's finally having enough collective courage, wisdom and maturity to
forsake the various Santa Clauses, Tooth Fairies, illusions in general. The tragically stupid way(s) is/are, one, to carry on being silent, doing and
desiring NOTHING, to continue suffering from thumb-in-butt disease (if you will), and two, to rely on unproved (by definition) blind religious faith,
which amounts to the very same "disease" as the secular version. "Wish in one hand, and crap in the other..."
If by no one and/or nothing else, nature itself will eventually make the necessary corrections. Pollution and resource depletion of this beautifully
biodiverse planet resulting from the blindly hyper-industrial market economy is guaranteed to take its toll. That's just basic physics, reality.
