Animals All, But God is Not Dead

8 Apr

Today I was possessed by a singular thought. I woke at 6:30, refreshed and happy to have gone to bed early (I am, after all, getting mature. Thankfully, not old.). Reading the Bible and reading that sonofabitch Nietzsche, seems to have coalesced. In the early evening, my thought, my anxiety, crystallized.

“I watch an insect and it falls on its back, unable to turn itself. I flip it over. Have I performed a miracle? When it repeats the action and I do nothing, am I cruel? Christians have always known that man is an animal.”

The answer is: yes and no.
