You and a few small groups around the globe are the survivors of a catastrophic break down of civilization and society. Sure as the dust that blew through the streets of Manhattan represented the destruction of the Twin Towers, the word we know is now ground zero. There was no alien invasion, no divine retribution, no, we did this to ourselves.

In addition to survival, clearing and rebuilding, it has been decided that a good amount of attention should be paid to writing the history of who we were. A new library dedicated to our descendants to explain the great achievements and lessons learned from failure, the highs and lows of the human condition.

Some of you would write down everything you know about anatomy, medicine, herbs and drugs. Some of you would write about mathematics, inventions, architecture and physics. Some would try to remember and write down the Bible, Quran, Torah, or other holy books, as best as they can remember.

I would want to collect and write down every piece of music and literature that I could remember. Although I can’t write like Shakespeare, or J.D. Salinger, I would want the stories passed on. I would want music to be a part of the future, and it represents every aspect of humanity.

Music would bring jubilance, like the Psalms of the Old Testement. It would be pretty easy to build drums and flutes and stringed instruments. One of the most important pieces of music to pass on, in my opinion, is this one:
youtu.be...
(trying to embed, can't?)


What legacy would you want to leave your descendants of our lost civilization and your hope for their future?

honestly? I'd plagiarizer and take credit for everything I could possibly remember.

Hey kids, check out this book your daddy wrote before the end of the world. It's called "Lord of the Rings" and it's in 3 parts. Also check out this song I wrote on this guitar I designed from scratch, I call the guitar a stratocaster, a name I just invented, and the song is called "While my guitar gently weeps".

Also, check out my theory of physics I just created that I call "general relativity"

lol

I know huh! LOL
We would be the founding fathers, religious leaders and most brilliant scholars. In 500 years, would they call us gods? Maybe someone should write down the perils of that assumption.

I'd have to jump on your music bandwagon.
I'd also have to bring back football... I could finally own my own team!

Since it's your idea I say we crucify you for the sake of your new religion?

Yeah, I'd rather not go all "Lord of the Flies." I got no religion, but I'm sure that there's a volunteer out there somewhere.

Yes, sports and games would be important. We should make sure poker nights continue, and someone has to make beer, and pizza!

How about we don't leave them anything, and let them figure it out for themselves. They'll be much better off without our interference. Maybe they'll get it right next time.

We could build massive casino's and call them churches and trick people into handing us large sums of money...
and yes, definitely beer, pizza and let's not forget about sushi!

Remember, we're writing a bibile, so yeah.

Let there be great fields for football, and let the art of fermenting malt beverage be revealed to the faithful. Let also yeast create a pizza crust to hold the bounties of the garden/farm.

Let them build giant cathedrals, shiney and loud, to hold the children of the Gods, that they may worship there.

Let there be the making of shiny disks of precious metal and let them be dropped into the idols as per instructed by the Great Spirit of the ancient indian nation. And let the idols sing loudly with pleasure as they devour the offerings of the faithful. Yea, the path of winning is narrow, as narrow as the eye of a needle, which a rich man can't go through.

Let there also be tables for the holy to play the game of poker, as instucted by the gods. We saw that it was good, and this is the law.

But lo children of the earth: do not stuff yourselves for enjoyment's sake.
Do not be too fat or too thin, or too hungry or too satisfied.
Learn the parable of Goldilocks and three Bears and make sure that the porridge is just right in temperature and quantity.
For surely God will view with disgust every extra morsel that passes your lips in gluttony.
And surely He will smite thee with morbid obesity.

And let there be the ritual of Karaoke.

Let them gather eel, shrimp, salmon and yellow fin tuna from the sea, let them also gather the long leaf seaweed.

Let them also harvest the rice from the patties. Let them ferment 1/2 the rice, by the ways of the Karaoke gods.

Then shall they eat of the uncooked fish with the sofly cooked rice and seaweed with small skinny sticks. And let them sip of the fermented rice liquid until they are filled with the holy spirit of Karaoke and the children, of the gods sing loudly, one by one, out of tune, the songs of their ancestors.

Let everyone laugh belly laughs, rejoicing in their neighbors offering, so that the Karaoki gods may bless them.

I would preserve all of the porn I could.
The most important thing for society would be to know that there are many fun and unique ways to procreate.

Windword = Prince of the Air? (Sirius B
)

LoL

5-23 The Prince Of The Air

Ephesians 2: 1-3: “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others”.

Does your prayer book start with an "Ia Ia Cthulu!" ?

I don't have a prayer book yet, but I guess it could, but it should deffinatly end in Sirius BS!

That verse you quoted is truely weird, that crazy St Paul never ceases to confound me, in his useless and judgemental texts, that never should have been permitted to be called "Holy Bible!" Thankfully, at least what we're doing here, isn't considered HOLY by anyone!
