What is that "IS", Ierrellus, that we were meant to become?

Yeah. Are you saying this was all planned, by god?
Are we like god, now?
Hm.

Not sure if that is such a good thing.

You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

Many do think this way. This would take away free will or at least free choice to my way of thinking.
Of course, that does not mean that I am incapable of seeing some things which would at least appear to be by design and not so random.

Are we like god, now?
Hm.


Trump would probably say yes. I would give that a resounding NO.

Not sure if that is such a good thing.


That would make God a puppeteer to my way of thinking.
Who would want to intuit a god who simply pulls our strings and expects us to dance to that music?

Without a sense of the teleology of existence religion, as belief in a God, would cease to exist. Biological determinism suggests purpose behind human evolution.
