Talking with God

Hello, I'm God. Bet you didn't expect to be talking to me on the interweb (unless, perhaps, your name is Neale Donald Walshe). I wonder if you're one of those insufferable new atheist types? If so, I reckon you're probably feeling a bit daft right now!

I think I'd better get something clear before we start. I see myself as being a God in the Abrahamic tradition of God(s). What does this mean? Well, let's put it this way, if you think that God is just another word for nature, or that I'm actually a pink bunny, or somesuch, then probably this activity isn't for you.

Anyhow, let's get to it. It's been drawn to my attention - by myself! - that a long time ago a fellow named Euthyphro got into a muddle, and ever since there has been some confusion about my nature. So I thought I'd ask you a few questions - you know, to see if we can get things straight.

Really Deep Thought

All the qualities of a man acquire dignity when he knows that the service of the collectivity that owns him needs them. If proud of the collectivity, his own pride rises in proportion. No collectivity is like an army for nourishing such pride....
