What if God is MORE than the stories we believe?

Does God care about EARTH?


Regardless of how you believe or don’t believe in God, this video is worth watching..if only for the sake of our planet and all those who come after us!

“Ten Commandments to Avoid Extinction: Reality’s Rules” by Michael Dowd

My comments after viewing the video:

Michael, I get personification and its idolatrous aspects!

Isn’t there a transcendent dimension of person though?  a transcendent dimension of nature and cosmos?   …”transcendent” being a separateness from other…”immanent” being our oneness with other.

Without the inter-course of transcendent and immanent aspects of reality,  wouldn’t cosmos simply be one big blob of reality convulsing within itself, birthing “little replications” of itself perhaps?

Personhood is about the “Separate yet One-with” relationship we need with the earth, cosmos and each other.  With no separateness/only oneness, there is no dynamic relational energy to continuously create ANEW!  Without the separateness part of personhood, wouldn’t’ reality be just us humans/trees/whatever responding or not to some cosmos set in motion by some green???

GOD Wants Prayers?

GOD WANTS PRAYERS?  

I’ve spent my life praying.  I can assure you…

 God has absolutely no need for prayers and no desire for them.  Neither does God wait for our petitions in order to grant favors.

We need to examine the whole concept of prayer and why we pray:

…so prayer can help us lay down our judgments and assumptions about self, others, life, the world, God, et al

…so prayer can help OPEN our minds to the MYSTERY OF LIVING unfolding before our eyes at every moment

..the mystery of each of us, the mystery of our relationships and our times.
