The more I read the more I ‘pencil check’
important passages. I used to underline but now,
I ‘tick off’ points of interest in the margin.
I view this as an advantage, instead of having
to deal with yellow markers, old age and travel.
The more ‘highlighted lines’ that I acquire
from the world’s scholarly philanders,
the better equipped I’ll be to conquer doubt
and fear with neatly, packaged science.
There are mysteries that lie all around
that we can solve with black-tipped marvels.
Position and faith cloud up the ionosphere.
If there is no proof, it’s false. Why confine ourselves
to the ancient Mediterranean when the sky has burst
into trillions of plutotrons. The scale is so immense
that it continues to grow, logarithmically intense!
There is more to learn when you remove privilege
and raw reward from the system. In the Word,
there is no progress, only retaliation and defence.
A religious experience in astrophysical space is free
from ethnic hate and groping, pious deliverance.
We have evolved in over 4,000 million years
into intelligent, selective, planetary creatures.
Yet, all carbon life is similar. We are not blessed
or significant. We are not located in any special,
centric circumstance. Our blue dot is only,
a whirl of innocence, discretely uninvolved.
Our condition has nothing to do with commanding
voices or outstretched fingers sparking favours.
There is no need to limit objectives but to joyfully
expand into godless ‘unendness.’ Jesus of old
and the prophets in robes were never exposed
to quantum physics.
Scriptural solutions satisfy the scars and swords.
A heavenly evolution is extremely technical.
It’s like opening a curtain to a colossal, nebulous
circus. Dawkins and Hawkins have told us to forget
the delusion and become thoroughly entertained.
