Spirits in The Sky
As a child I was indoctrinated in the Assembly of God church.  Bible thumpers and Holy Rollers par excellence.
Later I was shunted to regular Baptist churches. 
As a fairly bright child who loved to read, I took up the challenge of reading the Bible. 
Without getting into incredibly involved theological discussions of the novel, I learned enough from my  reading to truly question the treatise and its premises, not to mention the multitude of flights of fancy. 
Needless to say, I lost interest in the subject of religion.  The normal result when someone of average or above intelligence actually reads the book.
And here I am talking about just the content of the book, without even discussing the effects of various translations from and to various languages and all the problems inherent with that process.  Woh!
Anyway, over the years the whole premise of a superbeing, omnipotent, omniscient and all pervasive over and around the earth, who created the universe and THEN proceeded to concern itself with actions of individuals on that earth to the point of interfering, i.e., stirring the pot, from time to time with cryptic messages, portents, prophets, miracles, etc., etc., ad nauseum, really got to seeming pretty silly to me. 
The visible evidence of Gawd’s power on Earth is and was always in the hand of pompous sounding men, and occasionally women, who mostly concerned themselves with how other people behaved and offering some sort of hall pass for that behavior in return for a sizable donation. 
Salvation directly related to the size of said donations…. Hmmmm?
Then, in my early adulthood I heard the story of how one science fiction author, at a drunken debauchery (pronounced SciFi convention) declaimed that “the only guaranteed way to make a lot of money without the government taking a huge piece, was to invent a religion.! 
15 or 20 years later, Scientology was born of L. Ron Hubbard.
So, this super being, this Gawd, everyone keeps claiming they personally talked to and who wants us to send all our money to them, has been personally responsible for more death and destruction than any other single cause in the entire history of the world.
From Mammoth stampedes to the Crusades.  From the Conquistadores to the Mujahideen. 
This God keeps telling his true believers to kill somebody else in his name, so  said true believers can get into heaven.  And, after all, they are just Infidels.  They don’t really count as People, right? They will never get into our heaven, so who cares what we do to them, except, of course, Gawd, who wants them wiped out, but can’t quite manage a plague or a flood as the Biblical days.  Hmmmmm?
I truly do not have a problem with anybody’s having religion.  Everybody’s life has to have a structure to hang its premises on.
Everyone has them.  They are just different, right?
What bugs me is when those religious types start to tell ME how to live right.  What I am doing wrong.  How they Gawd is gonna get me. 
Well, fine, then just let your Gawd come and get me.  Being Omniscient, he ought to be able to find me, right.?  And, if he is so Omnipotent, why can’t he do it himself?  Why does he send a nutjob like Achmed, or Bubba Joe to do it.?
He could just send the creeping crud to do me in.  An avalanche of sewage,  a hurricane,  or in my case, a raging semi at 75 mph would do the job nicely, now wouldn’t it.?
And all this is truly irrelevant to those of us who know the True State of Affairs on and around the Earth.  The spirits of the animals, trees and elements speak to us on a daily basis and try to show us the way to Happiness, Success, Wealth, Enlightenment and all those other aspects of the good life that escape most every member of humanity from time to time.
My personal favorite in the Wolf God, who is wholly immaterial in body, yet makes his presence felt every time I get behind the wheel, as his apparent forte is to create openings in freeway traffic whenever I try to merge..
Seriously, it happens that I will start to merge and there will suddenly be a gap or an opening that is the perfect size for my vehicle, whatever size that is.
I can hear you laughing… but you expect ME to show respect for your particular collections of dogma, stories, rituals and beliefs.   Hmmmmm?

See, now that is a Wolf God sign if ever I saw one.  Watch for earthquakes, volcanoes, and other natural phenonema coming soon to your neighborhood.
