  4. Sometimes you have to wonder about his sense of humor, though.

  5. Today I read on the newspaper that artists, creators, are people who haven't grown up, and are close to their childhood. I love creators.

  7. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth. And the Earth
    was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

    And Satan said, "It doesn't get any better than this."

    And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.

    And God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed,
    and the fruit tree yielding fruit," and God saw that it was good.

    And Satan said, "There goes the neighborhood."

    And God said, "Let us make Man in our image, after our likeness, and let
    them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
    air and over the cattle, and over all the Earth, and over every creeping
    thing that creepeth upon the Earth." And so God created Man in his own
    image; male and female created he them. And God looked upon Man and
    Woman and saw that they were lean and fit.

    And Satan said, "I know how I can get back in this game."

    And God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach,
    green and yellow vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live
    long and healthy lives.

    And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the 99-cent
    double cheeseburger.

    And Satan said to Man, "You want fries with that?"

    And Man said, "Supersize them." And Man gained 5 pounds.

    And God created the healthful yoghurt, that woman might keep her
    figure that man found so fair.

    And Satan brought forth chocolate. And Woman gained 5 pounds.

    And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."

    And Satan brought forth Ben and Jerry's. And Woman gained 10 pounds.

    And God said, "I have sent thee heart-healthy vegetables and olive oil
    with which to cook them."

    And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own
    platter.

    And Man gained 10 pounds and his bad cholesterol went through the roof.

    And God brought forth running shoes and Man resolved to lose those extra
    pounds.

    And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so Man would not
    have to toil to change channels between ESPN and ESPN2.

    And Man gained another 20 pounds.

    And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil." And God brought
    forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low in fat and brimming with
    nutrition.

    And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center
    into chips and deep-fat fried them. And he created sour cream dip also.

    And Man clutched his remote control and ate the potato chips swaddled in
    cholesterol. And Satan saw and said, "It is good."

    And Man went into cardiac arrest.

    And God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

    And Satan created HMO's."

  10. well...artists are often thought of as having no purpose for creating/ doing things .. especially if you are looking at a million-dollar paint-splash on the canvass.. hahahahaha.. but you know, to the artist, there is always a purpose.. and it always stems from passion.. the world is a result of an erupting passion. God is an artist.

  11. Hello NP, great post as usual. Sometimes we humans tend to take everything to serious. After all, LIFE is temporary anyway!

  13. I never realised before how much God enjoys slapsick humour.
    Custard pie cooked and waits to be thrown with great accuracy.

  15. God?

    Judaism says that God created the world for man and he created man in order to give the greatest good.

    The 'greatest good' that he was giving was the gift of co-creation.

    Rather than just give man a perfect world, he gave man an imperfect world so that man could perfect it.

    I think this is pretty neat. Whether it is true is a different matter, but I appreciate the way it fits together.

  16. If there IS a big buy way up there creating things--I have to agree. And as long as we keep the big guy's real plans in mind along the way, we'd all do much better, I believe.
