A contemplation of Creation and the nature of God

with one comment

Consider this short selection out of the very, very many awkward facts about God’s Creation:

  1. The planets orbit the sun in ellipses, instead of circles.
  2. Speaking of circles, Pi has the very awkward value 3.14159…, instead of a nice round 3, or on the outside a suitable rational number like 22/7.
  3. The year has roughly 365 1/4 days, which is neither a round number of days nor evenly divisible into months (be they moon based or assigned a fix number of whole days).
  4. The human back is suboptimally designed for standing, let alone sitting in an office chair.
  5. Human eye-sight tends to deteriorate so badly over time that artificial aids are needed.
  6. Success in life disproportionately goes to the ruthless and evil actions are often rewarded.
  7. When bad things happen, they often happen indiscriminately, leading to death or suffering among good people.
  8. The magnetic North Pole does not coincide with the geographic North Pole.
  9. A significant part of the year is uncomfortably, or even dangerously, cold, while another part is uncomfortably, or even dangerously warm. (With some variation depending on geographical location.)
  10. The more someone wants to sleep, the harder it becomes.
  11. The M25 and Milton Keynes. (Cf. [1].)

Conclusion: Yes, God is a woman.

Disclaimer: The above is written for humorous purposes, deliberately playing on stereotypes, in conjuncture with a more serious text to follow presently. From a more serious point of view: (a) I am an atheist, making the question academic to me. (b) Assuming a Christian world-view, I would consider it highly unlikely for God’s nature to be mappable onto such human concepts as sex or gender.
