I close my eyes and reach out to the higher beings in the universe .I ask all the gods that were ,are and will be to influence things to more favorable positions for me .In the same breath I ask them for tangible objects and I ask them for intangible favors .Things that might only matter for a day or a lifetime come together .Needs and wants merge into one entity.In return I offer false promises, empty actions ,bribes and mild threats ; anything my meagre self could entice an omniscient power with.
Are gods real or just a powerful whim of our hopeful minds concocted in the times of distress and needs ?
“Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man … living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.” ― George Carlin
