Questions?

Post by George.Wright » Fri Mar 19, 2004 5:38 pm

An evangelical stare
Did that statue move over there?
Are there tears in it's eyes?
Why are there strange signs in the sky?
Why do we all have to live and die?
When's our last breath?
Where do we go to after death?
Can we return?
Or do we remain as ashes in the urn?
What is it that we all learn?
What was original sin?
Why did it turn us from him?
Why are we all so dim?
Why was Christ crucified?
Or was it all a big magic lie?
Is there such a thing as fate?
Why are we all so bloody late?
What was hidden in the garden behind that gate?
Is God a spaceman?
If so, what is his plan?
How long is the universe?
How many silly questions in this bloody verse?
Is there such a thing as a gypsy's curse?
What is supernatural and folklore?
Why is there seperation bewteen the sea and the shore?
Why is there dark and light?
Why do only some people have second sight?
Why am i not feeling alright?
Why do i religiously stare?
Did that statue move over there??

I really like the whimsical, yet serious, tone of your question poem, Georges. It moves well and does some very relevant questioning.

Liz, there are thousands more could have been added, it was to give a flavour of some questions people should ask themselves more and think about the answers.
Part of it was indeed tongue in cheek!!!

Ciao George!

Wonderful questions, my friend! You put them very poetical. But what are the answers? Perhaps a poem entitled "Answers".

Questions, questions, questions? This evening I viewed a program on the ABC which was part of a series titled "Testing God". The main thrust of the program was a study of the different approaches of science and religion with regard to answering our questions as to the fundamental nature of the universe. Science of course provides empirical answers to these questions but is always updating as new knowledge comes to our attention. Hence answers like knowlege are always incomplete for we can never know everything; there will always be some uncertainty in our knowledge or understanding (Heisenberg principle).
The same goes for religion but even more so for it relys on belief not empiricism. One speaker being interviewed commented that the Tora is books of questions with no answers. He asserted that there are no answers provided because the answer is always there- within us. We are by nature the questioning ape.
Thus any answers are going to be entirely personal for we each have our own viewpoint, understanding and beliefs. Furthermore if George's questions are rhetorical then why bother with answers? It is the questions to ponder that are important. :?:

:) Cheers, Witty Owl.
