Project 313 – Post No. 221

One of the first things we did when we got into Colorado Springs in late 2004 was to visit Garden of the Gods. I had never seen that much red rock before. HERE are the photos from the place. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 221

Yes, I know . . . it looks like a door handle. But, it’s not! A tail light, it is. I mean, it looks neat, but I assume it would be a pain to both keep clean and keep from getting damaged. 

One of the reasons I hold a high degree of confidence in god being a purely human invention comes from the titles. They are always titles I just know humans would like. On the other hand, I can’t imagine a god who would be all that interested in honorifics. Or, if they were, they would get something worthy of a god. Something like: “Supreme and most exalted leader of everything that can be seen and imagined and reigning over all other things that can both be experienced and imagined. Also, all the ice cream is mine!” And, that would just be the first of the 257 parts of the full title. 

I’ve always found god’s decrees rather limiting and lacking any imagination. Also, much like bragging about being smart, bragging about being powerful and stuff diminishes any awe we (I) might feel. Basically, another insecure jerk looking outside themselves for validation. 

I probably shouldn’t even be showing this here, but I give you . . . Spinner made with stained glass I hope no one will notice missing from the local church.

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

    bitter complaint The spinner isn’t spinning.
    Like local petty kings and chiefs with their praise singers, if God constantly needs to be reminded how great He/She/It is, then the greatness is questionable.


    • disperser says:

      That’s the spinner design, not the spinner in action. For that, you have to wait a day.

      As for greatness in the face of obvious insecurity and constant need for praise, it’s not just questionable . . . it’s absent.

      I would have said “completely absent” but speaking to an editor, I’m mindful of redundancies and unnecessary qualifiers.


  2. colonialist says:

    I don’t mind a good emphasizer. Complete absence creates more of a void in the mind than just absence. And, of course, those who worship such people or myths have such a void.

  3. Such beautiful photos of Garden of the Gods! We got to visit there when my youngest lived in CO for her job. :-)
    PHOTO: I did think it might be a doorknob until I looked closer! ‘Tis unique!
    CARTOON: “Boss of Bosses”…hmm…reminds me of someone. :o
    DOODLE: I love stained glass and find this spinner spectacular! And I can see/feel motion in it. A friend of mine makes stained glass…he did a huge stained glass window for a local indoor pool where he lives. It is amazing! :-)
    HUGS!!! :-)

      It happened to be on my way to and from work (with just a tiny detour) and I’d often drive through it when I had things on my mind (and wanted to take a few photos).

      . . . reminds me of a lot of people . . . small people with large egos.

      Thank you. I thought that turned out pretty well and now you’ve confirmed it. I’ve read a bit about stained glass . . . perhaps someday I’ll try my hand at it . . . you know, when I’m done with my other 357 interests.

      Hope you’re having a good run-up to Thanksgiving.
