The Origin of God

28 June 2014, 09:29
There is a lot of debate among commentators on News 24, whether there is a god or not. Any comment can trigger this debate. And there are no winners! The debate can't be won or lost.

Then I remembered something on a long play record cover from the seventies - Aqualung. It was written by Ian Anderson (1971), from the band Jethro Tull. (The guy that played the flute)

Aqualung

In the beginning Man created God;
and in the image of Man created he him.

And Man gave unto God a multitude of names,
that he might be Lord of all earth when it was suited to Man.

And on the seven millionth day Man rested and did lean heavily on his God and saw that it was good.

And Man formed Aqualung of the dust of the ground, and a host of others likened to his kind.

And these lesser men were cast into the void: And some were burned, and some were put apart from their kind.

And Man became the God that he had created and with his miracles did rule over the earth.

But as all these things came to pass, the Spirit that did cause man to create his God lived on within all men: even within Aqualung.

And man saw it not.

But for Christ's sake he'd better start looking.

So, there you have it! No more need to argue and debate the issue!
