, Did you know there's an estimated 60,000
'official' relligions on Earth?
. Did you ever read about the lives of the
Saints? Some were nuts. Self-flaggelation, self-deprivation to
the point of death, fits . and visions, bizarre,
violent, schizophrenic lives they claimed were dictated by Divine Will.
Every word of babble and . . . . . . .
damnation out of their mouths was taken as pure instruction everyone believed,
on faith, no questions asked. Nowadays . . .
. they . call that "mental illness".
People will look at you in awe if you tell them you saw an angel but they'll
tell you you're ..crazy if you . say you
saw a ghost. Why is that? You tell someone you're going to Lourdes to
dip your hand in a spring to ..see if God
will . cure your arthritis and people will take up a collection for you
to get there. You tell them you're going to ..Wyoming
to sit in a cave full of natural radon gas because you heard that's healed
people too, and they'll ask you why the ..hell
you believe that crap.
. Perhaps it's the faith of the Faithful
that inspires things. There's plenty out there that I respect as divine,
some things I think . .
are somewhat interesting from an anomalous view and of course things
that are so strange that I wonder what the hell
. . . . ..people are thinking. You'd think the Supreme Being would
have a better PR venue than to appear on a burnt muffin in ..Texas?
