In the end, when the dust settles, and the last cow is at the milking machine, Commerce decides everything.

Some ole white guy is not God. Nature is not God, Shroedie.
The Universe is not God.

The dollar decides everything. Everything else is just a hiccup here and there. A tempest in a tea cup even if it's a fairly large tea cup.


Commerce. Once it was the skin of a gazelle skin traded for some berries and yams. Some beads and trinkets for an island. Then, gold or silver. Coins. Salt. Weapons. Shekels. Finally bank notes and the stock exchange. So much money you just need a phone to pass it around now. And everybody wants a lot. Our self esteem comes from it. Rich ugly men get beautiful women. Rich men garner appeal to become leaders. Rich men lead churches.

Commerce is God. Make no mistake. People will treat you well when they want your dollars.

So I'm guessing that in the CK, viable semen is the coin of the realm.

It's no longer semen in the CK. Its replaced by "spiritual reproductive fluid"....much more pure and delightsome....and I hear it tastes like dirty soda.

That is why God made it white like everything else will be there whether you want to be white or not. Not your choice.

God is bad with money. He needs yours. Thankfully He has the LDS church for His money managers.

When we get a spiritual treat! No real treats. God needed the money.

Interesting thought here. If true then here are the main sources of dogma:

God: Economy/Dollar
Scripture: Wealth of Nations
Prophet: Adam Smith

As a young woman, I was so naive about money. I have more respect for what it can do, now. I'm also far more aware of how people abuse wealth and power.

"Nature" and "God" are just two of many completely inadequate words we made up to feebly describe the eternal mystery of the creator and the created, which remains an eternal mystery to me and you and every human who has existed or will ever exist.
Why pretend the mystery has all been cleared up and solved when 95% of the universe is a complete mystery we call Dark Matter/Energy or Lamda for short?

Einstein's greatest blunder was listening to people who couldn't see what he predicted, which we wouldn't see for 100 years.

My dear Shroed--I have never ever pretended the "mystery" has been cleared up and I don't know a single person who does think that.

I find your posit that 5% of the so-called mystery is no longer mysterious to be a bit over the top however. I would say closer to .01 percent may be known if we are lucky.


Also, as you say, '"Nature" and "God" are just two of many completely inadequate words we made up to feebly describe the eternal mystery of the creator and the created . . .'

Who is the *we* your are talking about? Because, uh, please do not include me in your assumption that there is/has to be a creator.

The assumption that there is a creator is just that. It's wishing and hoping cuz you cannot accept what is for what it is which is the basis of religion.

Assumptions cripple exploration.
