All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Everything that which still exists, does so simply because it works. Just like in nature. Crime does pay off, not always, but often enough to be considered as an option. For instance, Lions like to rob weaker predators like hyenas and cheetahs if they don't quite feel like hunting and just want a snack.Mean lions!
Rape works as well, especially if you use it in war. I don't know if you knew this, but rape (of infants and adults alike) exists in nature. Male 'alpha' guinea pigs rape other males as a method to make them go away or at least too intimidated to try to mate females. Weasels rape newborn females in their nests for the sake of procreation (a weasel is able to conceive practically from birth on).
You would not believe all the things which are natural. I do not see what gods have to do with it, and how they are supposed to adhere to morals humans developed to get along with humans.Gods are amoral.
If you take this 1 god and its omniscience, how about: god sticks to its own business. We could indeed handle it on our own. perhaps the god does not care about details because it is not anthropomorphic enough? I don't know how handling & organising humans is a deity business.
with amoral I just mean that the rules we established for each other (humans) are alien to them. it does not mean they are rotten and sinful, lol. I think it might be easier for polytheists, because there you have gods who have their areas of care. If you have 1 god who supposedly cares for everything, then I can see how it is a problem in the first moment.
what if god is mainly a creative force with no interest in support and operations (extend to accounting, logistics etc). so in the monotheistic continuum, the creative force god created around, created human in its fashion (with the desire to create more than just offspring) and did not have the idea to interfere with the business of its creation at any point, simply because it is not in the nature of this force, a force with no interests in morals, judgment, and bureaucracy of any kind to such a degree that it did not interfere when the idea of god worship came up.
this 'god' may have not even felt addressed in the first place, also because its view on humans, and anything it created and creates, is really far away from what WE perceive as caring. maybe this 'god' cares. seriously, ants and bees live in very organised communities, from an outside perspective it may indeed be just a question of patience for any spectator, until we got our shit straight on our own. i hope you get the idea.
Whether anything natural is an opponent or not is a matter of handling, not of anythings nature in itself.*
They live naturally and work their physique hard to achieve and survive.
The opposite. They are so trained, so flexible and so elegant because they are always in the moment. If you ever had a cat or a dog, you noticed how they do movements for the sake of the movements in complete devotion. They don't work anything hard, because being in the moment and with the moment removes the 'work' aspect.
I perceive you as very judgmental with all that. Do you like that, or is it required to place judgment on everything in your practice?
*Babies are also not afraid of deadly scorpions, poisonous spiders, etc.
If you say so. I guess you know my thoughts about what I think of judgment vs creation.
Humans, unlike animals, adhere to a different set of rules as we are, in essence, of a different category/hierarchy of creation
No, we don't adhere to anything properly otherwise Sylvester would not have to ask this question, but effortless mastery has a lot to do with the devotion a cat has while stretching after a nap.
