Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Existence of God

I.

There are many ways
in which something can said to exist.
There are many ways
that somethings can be god.

II.

We could answer this question
by deconstructing the question into
consituent fluid concepts.
We could explain the existence of god(s)
as a mental construct based on
aspects of evolution, language, psychology and sociology.
It is a very complicated story.

III.

In part we dont not want to answer the question
of god(s) existence. We loot something in answering the question.
We have made our contemporary peace
with the question
by having it be an open one.

IV.

Does God exist?
Many feel this is the most important question in the universe,
as it usually determines the meaning of the universe.
though the meanng of the unverse
is not of all that importance.

V.

God(s) is/are a fundamental way of looking at the universe.
It is usually also the most important furnture of the world.
We decorate other ideas around it at least not to clash.

VI.

There is a leap of faith,
and a leap of unfaith.
The believing in God(s) is a default position.

VII.

The answer sounds like it should be simple,
but it's never simply simple.
A part of us is ok with that.

VIII.

There is no god in the most basic sense of \is."
So we must dance around that
which damages reasoning
but it feels so good.

IX.

Without god(s)
the world fragments.

IX.

The alternative to god(s)
is life,
beautiful
but indifferent.

X.

God is
a Magic Eye™

XI.

the world today
has more pressing problems
than to worry about the existence of god(s)
They never find the promised land.

XII.

The pressing problems can be "solved"
if we ignore the moralities
supported by religion.

XIII.

perhaps
the question is:
can we be followers?
