Kia does Cat-urday: Why God created Cats.

Anubis or Sehkmet? You decide

With a hat tip to a Bluebird’s regular weekly post, I give you Peter’s comment on one of my older posts seems appropriate to the Cat-urday Post theme. Here is goes. Enjoy.

I think I should repost the joke about ‘Why God created Cats’:

“And God Created DOG to LOVE Man and CAT teach to him HUMILITY”

It is reported that the following edition of the Book of Genesis was discovered in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
And Adam said, “Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me.”

And God said, “No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will know I love you, even when you cannot see me.
Regardless of how selfish and childish and unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself.”

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, “But Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and all the good names are taken and I cannot think of a name for this new animal.”

And God said, “No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG.”

And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam’s guardian angel came to the Lord and said, “Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but no one has taught him humility.”

And the Lord said, “No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not worthy of adoration.”

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat’s eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.

And God was pleased. And Adam was greatly improved.

And Cat did not care one way or the other.

See. I told you it would tickle your funny bone. Now go out there and live out a “Non Disastrous” Saturday.

Xtian Haiku: Freedom is Inevitable

Recovery Escape Pod

I am not the first

And I will not be the last

There is room for all.

My continuing Journey. 

Our transition from people of Faith in a Book written by fearful and supersititious men and it’s Story of Salvation from the wrath of its God to men and women of our own destiny is a fluid and changing narrative. There are those who would hinder and divert the progress. People for whom fear and insecurity is their only hope. There are others whose desire is to silence and and curse my egress as if it were their darkness. 

I don’t know where I’m going but I know where I’ve been.

I spent 34 years knowing all the answers, now I know that I  don’t even know all the questions. ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ had it right. I wass taken over and used for the Bondage of others and myself. But I’ve broken out of the Pod. I’m escaping to Freedom. I want to know… not just believe. How about you? The ship is going down. Flames all around us… engulfing us… becoming us. There’s room for one more. Another seat beside mine, maybe more. “To boldly go…” where no Christian had gone before. OK, maybe a few have. But not us… Yet.

Let go of your Fear, your insecurity, your pride, your certainty. Embrace the Unknown. Reach forth to what has been denied you, what has been Removed from you at New Birth. Become who you were born to be. 

The Escape Pod launches soon… Be on it. Its time for you to stop being satisfied with just Believing. Turn on again your desire to Know. “Ask, Seek, Knock…” Are all well and good, but the answers are beyond what you have been told. Yes, Trust but also Verify. 

Are you ready? 3…2…1…Launch!!!

Questions for Christians this Easter Weekend: Forgiveness for a Price 

If the one who is wronged punishes Himself on behalf of the criminal to secure Forgiveness for him… couldn’t He just Forgive without the Self abuse?


And if Justice is ‘meeted out’ by actually punishing not the Criminal but rather the Victim of his crime, is that really Justice?

The story is supposed to be about God giving people an opportunity to Return to Him by Forgiving their offences and wiping the slate clean.

If God then takes the punishment on Himself for offenses done to Himself, can He not… Just Forgive all those who simply come without the Kabuki Theater of a Human Blood sacrifice OF Himself TO Himself FOR Himself?

If He is God, then He can.  He could have chosen to do whatever he wanted to do for the Salvation of mankind, the clearing of the Debt.  Or do you say He is Limited and Restricted in His options? Then perhaps He is not worthy of the Title.

You agree then that He’s not limited or restricted? The question then becomes, If He could have… why didn’t He…

Just Forgive? He asks us to Forgive our enemies without revenge or recompense. Is He unable or unwilling to “do as I say” or is it “not as I do”?

Forgiveness forgives without punishment, price or recompense to anyone involved. If your concept of God “requires human blood sacrifice” even of Himself, to Himself for Himself… It’s not true forgiveness, but just another Pagan Human Blood Sacrifice of someone who didn’t commit the crime and therefore isn’t liable for the Payment. Your cries for “God’s Justice” to be fulfilled by the death of an innocent man on a cross he didn’t deserve become Injustice and an Unjust Death at the hands of other men, but by the Design and Determination of your “Just” God.

Why not just Forgive… Like He requires us to do?

For CS’s Amusement Tonight

Just read the post HERE and peruse the comments section to understand the reference. What a F*ck Wit. Lol. On Earth Day no less! This is exactly why we need to defend Science for religious mythology.

More CS-like idiocy 

And this tongue-in-cheek assessment 

Best Earth Day gift EVER!! Thx ColorStorm. LOL!! And thanks to brother Peter for letting me know about the hilarious conversation going on.

March for Science on Earth Day

Is it just Anti Trump? Or is there more to it?

I’ll start with an oldie but a goodie from 1982. And end with a Clarion Call to action. Thomas Dolby. Good times.

Today is Earth Day. 

I guess it was started in 1970 during the very beginning of the modern environmental movement. The day attempts to redirect our attention to our interconnectedness and interdependence to and with all life and all things on the planet we call home, the only home we’ve ever had or known. 

There are some, like I was at one time, who would try to rewrite the narrative into a story of Creation where we humans are special, unique and separate from the world and universe around us, and as such we are the consumers, users and even often times ‘the destroyers’ of this Pale Blue Dot in the outer suburbs of our own galaxy and the universe at large. 

They actually think that it’s Science that has blinded us to the ‘Reality’ that it doesn’t matter how we live and treat the world, it’s resources,  and it’s many other living inhabitants (our neighbors and non human cousins), because “it’s all going to burn anyway. There’s a new world coming.” So we continue shitting in our own living rooms and the yards of other living beings as if disease, death, starvation and extinction will not be the results. Oh yeah, we’ve been “blinded with science”. In the greek that means… Bullshit.

But these same people will go to doctors, drive cars, fly on airplanes and use computers and cell phones to deny the science and physics and technology they use and rely on every day. Who’s really blinded? They are… blinded by their narrative that science is meaningless and even deadly if it interferes with or contradicts their notions of “Reality”. 

Science does not blind. It literally unveils and reveals what these people would actively blind us to, and sadly I once was one of them. Arrogance, ignorance and so called ‘common sense’ is enthroned, usurping the rightful place of discovery, ingenuity, advancement and progress.

And all the while, the planet we love and call home suffers in silence. Our environment goes to pot, we pollute the air, water and soil… even our own food supplies… and the natural resources that not only we as humans need to survive, but also those of every other living, breathing and moving being on this planet. 

I don’t know all the science on Global Warming, Cooling, Climate Change or whatever they are calling it now, but I do know that even if humans are not the Primary cause or even a large cause, we are responsible for a LOT of the environmental damage to our own home. And even if it’s true that the planet’s ecosystem is capable of balancing it all out and recovering from the destructive effects of our “it’s all going to burn anyway” and Earth Escapist mentality… how do you justify putting it in the position that it has to in the first place? 

This is bigger than Trump or any Administration

We need to defend scientific endeavor, inquiry and advancement from those who would actively blind us with superstition, ignorance and religious mythology. We need to March for Science on Earth Day… Go for it!

Xtian HaiKu: “Sovereign Success”

((( This is an updated and slightly changed version of a previous posting. I hope you enjoy. -kia )))

… he loves me not

shredded yellow squares

populate my wastebasket

didn’t make the cut

-KIA 

I’ll look for more poetic ways, 

to express my life on such a day

will I laugh or dance or simply sway

to the music in my head, but nay.

I’ve found a deeper peace

a better form of quieter release

I’m learning to rhyme with greater ease

as I turn out offerings such as these.

enjoy them now before the toss

these squares will soon be naught but loss

to make the room for those of greater gloss

for I would rather these not be mossed.
