Humanity the God

Amen - The Creation of Adam Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Creation_of_Adam

Although time and translation have reversed roles, we have here Michelangelo’s conveniently male depiction of one — and certainly caucasian (note, beyond the obvious skin tone, the disproportionately small penis, lengthened still unrespectable by its tapering foreskin) — creating god in his image (clothed, in his shame) sprawled in the bosom of youthful nudity, thus lending confidence to the ageless depravity of pedophilia.

Humanity. n. A species overwhelmingly inconsiderate of its own and other species, in need of creating gods in their warlike image: A supreme and unquestioning authority to validate their criminal existence, to ensure their unworthy and dishonorable continuance in spiritual eternity, to absolve their transgressions against one another, nature and her earthlings.

God. n. An imaginary being, a phenomenon of the mind infecting a diseased and self-serving intellect.

  1. Well stated, Peter. You have a great gift for seeing through the thin veneers of polite society, for exfoliating each veneer with a great economy of language.
    “…creating god in his image (clothed, in his shame)…”
    So much told in those 9 words, so much revealed. Very fine indeed!
