Magic

Magic is everywhere. You just have to look.


Look around right now. Now look down. Made you look! There are robins in the trees that sing beautiful four note songs. CHIIP! CHIRP! CHTHTHTH! CHIRP! There are wolves and whales and cocanut trees that burst forth with cocanuts.


There is legalized gambling in South Dakota. Pull the lever and win big money! Lady luck sings a song too but I don't remember how it goes. The Black Hills are in South Dakota. Be very quiet! Indians are watching you.


There is the concept of infinity. Infinity is something goes on forever. You are not infinite and you will die.


After you die, nothing happens. Do you remember anything before you were born? No. That is what being is dead is like. Being unborn. Don't worry though. You don't know and don't feel and don't exist.

There is no such thing as heaven or hell. There is no God who cares about humans. We are simply evolved animals on a rock in the middle of an infinite space. When you die, the same thing that happens to dogs and fish happens. You decompose and dissapear and you are gone forever. Christianity is the most popular religion in the world. Judaism and Islam are also popular. They are misguided because there is no God in the sky who cares about us. There is probably no God in the sense of a creator. There is probably no such thing as God but you don't know. Christianity, Judaism and Islam were started by people who herded cattle in the desert. It's all mythology. Which is good-there is truth in myth. But it's all metaphoric.

There is a man named John Stamos who was on a show called "Full House".

There was a man named Napoleon who crowned himself emperor of France. After he died they put plaster over his face and made this mask:

Napoleon is dead and doesn't exist anymore.

There is a city called Istanbul in a country called Turkey. Names and words.

90 + 3 = 93.

If you look up and you are outside you will see the sky.

There is a male named Patrick and he is typing these words.

There are shapes. Squares and circles and triangles.

When you forget something you can't remember it.

I fan is blowing on my hair. Magic.

Jesus walked on water and he was magic. He had magic powers like David Copperfield. So did Buddha and Harry Houdini and David Blaine and Muhammed.
Of all those magicians David Blaine is the closest to the hip hop culture I think.

There was a man named Charlemagne.

Look up again. Made you look.

Magic is everywhere. You just have to look.

You say there is no god-caretaker yet you leave open the possiblity of a creator-god. I wonder, Is this because you ackowledge the universe is infinite? I've neither the intention nor the ability to refute your denial of a "God you cares about humans," but I must, for the sake of argument if nothing else, TAKE YOU TO TASK on your near-denial of a creator-god.
By your own admission space is infinite. Do you mean to say the universe is infititely large or that it is everlasting as well? Science has been able to deduce what the universe was like up to a fraction of a second before its "creation" - i.e. the big bang. One of the 2 main theories among the scientific community as to what state of existence this mass which would later comprise the whole of the universe was in is that it had maintained an equilibrium for all of pre-time before its explosion [though I will admit this is indeed only a theory in the lay sense, as science relies on observable data to ultimately make its conclusions]. As stated in Newton's first law of motion, in order for an object which is at equilibrium to move [change] it must be acted upon by an outside force.

Put another way:
What was there BEFORE the big bang? Why did the big bang bang? One answer and one reason why many astronomers believe in God or a god (whether or not they are correct in their belief of its level of compassion) is because of these very uncertainties. For the universe to have happened, it must have been acted upon by a force that existed/exists outside of time and spac.
