Angel


Sweet touches rock my life.
From the depth of mind
And the days that once were
The lovely smiles
The ones who used to make my eyes widen
The ones who still do
I feel the blood and the pleasure
They all aid my calm
I could tell you stories of thankfulness
To lovers and friends
To thoughts and dreams
Making life and me more than it was
Bringing it all to the now
Which is a fight , because
Of course the main thing these days
Is the War against Insanity
But it isn’t one that is fought just to win
It is fought because to do otherwise
Would be a lie
The future truth
Will make whatever fight I have with
Stupidity
Moot.
And that day, when the smiles
And the love
And the happiness
Bring all the hopes together
Will be the day that I can let go of this
Which I carry
Everyday
Willingly.

More than sex"?
no way!
Ok. Here:

“Modern science is capable of debunking religious nonsense”
Bullshit. But in a different way.
See? When someone on the side* of science makes such a statement, he is just as clouded as a religious fanatics.
Ever see a molecule? Just one. No. No you haven’t. Ever somehow traveled back 14 billion years ago and seen the start of the universe? No you haven’t. But you accept these as truths. On Faith. The same way holy people do it. Science is just another religion. Now, don’t get me wrong. I am on the side of science.
I see scientific theory enacted into event everyday. My CD player’s laser works just like science says it should. Stuff like that.
But isn’t it the same, in a way, with what most religions say. Those statements can be seen day by day as truths. Be nice. Do the right thing. Life will be happier.
This is true.
If some wish to put a name to this idea, so be it. If they find comfort with it, all the better.
It is when that Name is used to hurt or control others that is becomes evil. But people don’t need a god to have an excuse to do that.
I remember watching a comedy act, and the comedian was making fun of religion by talking about fossils. The joke was that the god people were saying the world was only something like 2000 years old, and fossils proved they were wrong because the carbon dating showed they where 65 million years old.
But, see, the comedian never did the dating. He probably couldn’t. Neither could I. The equipment and the training are specialized.
Sure, there are dudes really trained in the sciences that do this thinking and testing and we trust in them to tell us how it is.
Just like in religion there are priest, mystics, and saints.
And, just like religions, the Scientific mind has got it wrong and changed their story on topics.
So, basically, we all choose what we believe. If someone believes something different, so be it.
Humans don’t need anything as ethereal as faith to mess with each other.
But we somehow, each find solace in thinking we have found some of the answers.


*By side, I mean, believing in science. Not meaning you have to disbelieve in religion, though if the choice has to be made, say between creationism and evolution, the Side of Science has a strong lean to the latter. But the best minds, and any who admit the only real truth (“I don’t know but I would sure like to find out”) about life and the universe, sort of have both. Einstein, for example, was a religious man, and changed our world through science.
Anyone who thinks hard enough and is honest with themselves enough will, I think, come to the idea of something we don’t understand. God. Whatever was ‘before’ the big bang. Whatever. The unknown, and from it us, is magical enough to encompass any dream or faith.

Did you write that?
Very nice.
Getting all romantic on me?

I haven't been here in a while. Good to see you're still alive. You're like 300 in Blog years.
That might explain the lapse...

I feel strangely intimate with this poem; as if you took my own thoughts and emotions and articulated them in such a perfect and beautiful way, that they can finally speak to me. Thank you.
